Further information:

If you have one week to visit Portugal and don’t want to miss anything please email us with some information about yourself. What do you like to do and see, what are your hobbies and interests? This will help us to design a truly customized tour. This one is just a draft.

The tour guide will drive you to Porto and other towns and will sleep over. The guide won’t stay in the same hotel than you but will be available to suggest restaurants for dinner and give other information.

For your convenience this itinerary was designed using only two hotels: three nights in Lisbon and three nights in Porto. If you actually enjoy staying in different hotels we can break the itinerary in a different way.
