Everything from airport pick up to airport drop off was just perfect. Ponctuality, efficiency, know how , flexibility, are just of the few advantages that will make us use the services of Portugal Trails on our next group trip. Accommodations were excellent , the preprogrammed GPS , the private guided tours , the activities and food recommendations were just right for our group. We enjoyed every minute. Highly recommended.

From beginning to the end of our Portugal trip my wife and I were so pleased with our choice of using Portugal Trails to book our stays, transportation. We drove north from Cascais nearly to the border of Spain. We chose the "local roads" over the beautiful, costly motorways. We saw so many sites traveling on the local roads. Each and every accommodation was wonderful. We had reviewed places to stay on their website. Portugal Trails listened to what our interests were and expectations for accommodations and their location at each city we visited. We drove the coastal roads all the way south before heading east on the southern coast. Although we had to make arrangements to fly in to and out of Azores, Portugal Trails handled getting us to and from the airports, there were ALWAYS on time, the drivers were great to spend time with, learning some of the local knowledge. We spend 3 weeks on Portugal's mainland and almost a week in Azores. We highly recommend Portugal Trails!!!

My husband and I knew we wanted to visit Portugal this fall but didn't have any idea as to where to start to plan a trip. We knew we didn't want to go on a group tour, but were a bit anxious about traveling by ourselves in a country which we had never visited and where we didn't speak the language. Early in my research, I ran across Portugal Trails' website, and it appeared to be exactly what we needed! I completed the intake form and sent it off, receiving a reply from Goncalo in less than 24 hours. From there, we exchanged nearly daily emails about our options and the various details involved. Within about a week, we had a proposed itinerary that covered all of our desired locations and activities, customized to our interests, at a price we felt was fair. All aspects of the planning were smooth and every question we had was answered immediately. We opted for the use of drivers to each destination (rather than renting a car), and we were so pleased with that decision. What a comfortable, stress-free way to travel! The hotels Goncalo recommended were excellent, the private tour guides and drivers were great, and with only one minor exception (which after a phonecall was quickly rectified), all of the pickups were on-time, if not a bit early. Our itinerary included Lisbon, Sintra, Obidos, Nazare, Alcobaca, Porto, and the Douro Valley, as well as a number of smaller sites we passed through on our way up the coast. For a one-week stay, it felt just about right to enable us to have a sense of the history, geography, architecure and culture of this beautiful country. We always felt warmly welcomed and found nearly everyone spoke some level of English. And the Portugal Trails helpline was always a phonecall away if we had any questions. It was a terrific trip and we recommend them highly!

Our trip to Europe was wonderful but the highlight for us was the two weeks that Portugal Trails organised for us in magnificent Portugal.
We cannot thank you enough for what you allowed us to experience in your country.
We have been extolling the virtues of Portugal & your company since we returned.
Once again, thank you for giving us such a magical trip.

We used Portugal Trails for a 22 day tour of Portugal. The pre programed GPS made the driving around super easy. Check what day it is and then hit the Go There button and off you go. The Hotels they picked were nicer than any we would have stayed at on our own and the entire trip was exceedingly well planned. The trip planner took into account every thing we wanted to see and do and arranged them to fit into the trip. Through out the planning process the email responses were very fast and exactly on point. Absolutely perfect planning and it took all the stress out of the trip. We checked their daily plan with two guide books and in every case the activities lined up by Portugal Trails were mentioned as "must do or must see" along with some of the off the normal tourist path things. There was also lots of time planned in to just wander around an area without a set plan. Perfect combination of activities.
