I was advised by Joao Barata from Portugal Trails. Excellent organization of the road trip throughout. Lisbon, Nazare, Porto, Pinhao, Belmonte, Eovora, Cascais.
Very good choice of hotels with central location for easy walks.
Very good tour guides in Lisbon and Porto (Architect and PhD student in History).
The GPS, navigation device was fully and accurately programmed prior to the trip and was very handy.

We had always planned our trips by ourselves, researching things on the web and with guidebooks, asking friends, etc. We knew we wanted to go to Portugal and we were tired of doing all of the work so we decided to go with Portugal Trails. Things could not have worked out better. After a zillion changes on our part, our travel consultant, Joana Machado, patiently set up the perfect trip. Hotels (Lisbon and Evora) were great and wonderfully located, our tour guides were top of the line, and all of the transfers went smoothly. To me, the big test of a service like this is how they deal with problems. We had an issue with our hotel one night as there was a big leak in the bathroom-and :Portugal Trails proactively straightened things out for us.

We could not be happier. Meanwhile, go to Portugal NOW before the rest of the planet figures out how great it is.-Don and Nina Worth, Miami Beach, Florida

What a great experience! We planned an 8 day trip throughout the country. Portugal Trails made everything so easy ---- airport pick up/drop off, beautiful hotels, easy pre-programmed GPS and knowledgeable guides. They even made adjustments to our agenda as we were in country. I will definitely use again and highly recommend to friends

This was our second trip with Portugal Trails. Last year, we toured Portugal for two weeks and this year we arranged a tour of Andalusia - Seville, Cordoba, Malaga, Ronda, Granada. Again it was an excellent experience.

Portugal Trails puts together a very professional package. Pick up at the airport, excellent accommodations, car rental, guided tours at destinations and recommendations for sighting seeing, restaurants along the way, reference materials, pre-programmed GPS.

Highly recommended.

We agree with everything positive written about Portugal Trails. Everything was planned to perfection, the pre-programmed GPS was very well organised and took most (but not all!) of the stress out of Portugal driving. The accommodation was first class and the meal we had in the Coimbra accommodation was extraordinarily good. We had walking tours in Lisbon and Porto and both guides were excellent. PT asked us how they could improve: we had nothing to suggest. When a couple of small issues cropped up, PT dealt with them expertly. I'd be happy to give them 6 stars as well.
