Owner description: Different Portugal is an Animation Tourism Company that organises sightseeing private tours in Portugal, including day tours, multiday tours and wine & food tours. Isn't it amazing when we visit places where friends live and they show us around all the sites only locals know? The greatest memories we take back home are of moments lived in the authentic country, not only in the touristic sites. That is the story behind Different Portugal. We want to share real places and experiences in Portugal in a unique, warm, friendly way. At Different Portugal we provide both regular private tours and tailor-made private tours in Portugal allowing you to know the real Portugal in a customised and memorable way. Our private tours include historical places throughout the country, from Sintra, Cascais and Lisbon to Porto, Guimaraes, Coimbra. We also organise private tours in Alentejo and Algarve regions showing you the best of our country in each place. The extensive knowledge of our local guides will also take you to several off the beaten path places in Portugal. Our knowledge of the country is much wider as our local guides are foodies and wine lovers. We organise a wide range of wine and gastronomical private tours, from half-day tours to multiday tours. The extensive knowledge of the country, love for gastronomy and wine of Different Portugal’s owner, Filipe, also a local guide, allow us to develop charming, tailor-made and creative tours, where all details are important. Different Portugal started its business in 2011 and has received the Tripadvisor Certificate of Excellence since 2012. Choose one of our day tours, multiday tours or wine & food tours and let us be your Portuguese pal! Come with us and discover a Different Portugal!!

“Portugal has some history, gastronomy and great guide”
Reviewed March 10, 2014

I have no words to describe our private sightseeing tour to Tomar, Batalha Monastery, Nazaré and Óbidos. Amazing day, the guide told us lots of details and we had an excellent lunch. Without time pressure, we visited every sight with the time we need. Has a family of three we enjoy every moment. Thanks Different Portugal to treat us as friends.

“Amazing day in the Évora Tour”
Reviewed March 9, 2014

Wowww! What can i say about their private tour? It was one amazing day learning about portuguese culture, history and local products during our visit to Évora centre. We learn about olive oil and olives, cork, portuguese wines and the game on the winemaker with a pic-nic was an amazing surprise. I don´t have words to describe the experience to visit a Ceramics Museum and the amazing castle of Monsaraz. I felt in the top of the world, seeing history from XII century without crowd around us in this unique place.

“Great personal attention!”
Reviewed February 27, 2014

We really enjoyed our day with Filipe and Different Portugal. He met us on time at the hotel, took us to interesting sites, and shared lots of interesting information on a variety of topics. We compared his price to the bus tour organized by the hotel. We thought his price was a far better value. We got to see the castles and locations we wanted to see, not what was preset by a tour company. He took us to local places to eat, not full of tourists, and with good menus. And our time was efficiently used. We give him very high marks and think you'd be happy with any of the guides from his company. His cooking school sounds great, but we didn't have time to take advantage of that. Our trip to Lisbon was superb. Thanks to Different Portugal for making one day of it so nice.

“Amazing day with Manny!!!”
Reviewed February 9, 2014

Wow, where do I start? This was one of the most amazing days! The rain never dampened our spirits because Manny is such and awesome tour guide. From the moment he picked us up at the hotel, to when he dropped us off, and had to chase my hat down in the middle of the street when it blew off, he was full of fun facts about Lisboa, Sintra, Cascais, all of Portugal and the world really. I recommend this tour to anyone and will absolutely use Manny again on our next trip to Portugal! A very personable person and we enjoyed our whole day.
