We LOVED the 3 things we did: The full day wine tour, Bike Tour with Picnic and Epicurean Walking Tour in Lisbon.
Thank you for your help!"
Greg and Kelly - September, 2018
"Although we have traveled extensively, this is the first time we let a travel company make (almost) all of the arrangements for us. After our experience with Portuguese Ways, I am not sure we will ever be able to go back to "do it yourself" travel again. Simply put, this was the experience of a lifetime, the best vacation we've ever taken, and that is all due to Portuguese Ways."
Andrew and Nancy - September, 2018
"Chris and I want to extend a HUGE thank you to you and your entire team for planning such a wonderful trip for us!

We really loved the “Fado” in the tram and we want to repeat this one day again!"
Daniela - September, 2016
"The trip was fabulous. Both hotels were great. Our tour guide Victor was absolutely fabulous. I liked that we had the same guide for both days and our driver/car for the Sintra day was great as well. I really enjoyed our tour of Lisbon and Sintra. The rental car was great and driving to the Algarve was definitely the way to go. Having everything set up in advance by you really allowed us to enjoy ourselves and not have to worry about the planning etc."
Sam - September, 2016
"Logistics were perfect. We've never waited, everything was seamless. The drivers and guides we had were fabulous and they also knew their itinerary which made changes in the schedule very easy.
Douro was the highlight of the trip. Six Senses Portugal was one of the TOP 5 hotels we’ve ever been to. It was fantastic and the food was incredible to."
Laura & Will, Daisy & Jordan - September, 2016
"We had the most enjoyable holiday. Both Porto and Douro were great suggestions and places and we were so happy to see and experience!"
Christopher & Margaret - August, 2016
"Pedro helped me and my husband plan a visit to Portugal to celebrate our 10th anniversary. We couldn't have been happier with his service. He listened to our preferences and put together the most amazing trip that combined cities and small towns, great food and wine, culture, beautiful scenery and more. We felt that we got to experience some of the best Portugal has to offer. The trip was perfectly suited to our tastes (the opposite of a generic package tour) but we had the benefit of someone making everything happen seamlessly in the background. Pedro is obviously very committed to his clients' happiness. He's great at his job but also an incredibly nice guy. We highly recommend Pedro and Portuguese Ways and hope to work with them again!"
Stephanie - October, 2015
"Gostaria de agradecer a você e ao Pedro por essa linda viagem que me proporcionaram a Portugal. O programa foi muito bem desenhado e os dias muito bem aproveitados. Os guias e motoristas todos muito bom profissionais, além dos excelente hotéis onde me hospedei.
Espero poder logo voltar a Portugal e fazer uma nova viagem organizada pela Portuguese Ways!"
