Have you ever been to Portugal?

Portugal is a country on the western edge of the Iberian peninsula, bordering Spain. Though its small land area, it has many landforms and climates, as it stretches from north to south, between the Atlantic coast and the mountains.

With a cultural heritage from the once mighty Portuguese Empire, the country is an acclaimed golf destination, with many breathtaking beaches, and surprisingly, several ski resorts.

Portugal is 900 years old, and even though it has a relatively small area, it played a crucial role in world history. Nowadays, it is the oldest country in Europe with the same borders. During the 15th and 16th centuries Portugal started a major chapter in world history with the New World Discoveries ("Descobrimentos"). It established the Cape Route to India, and colonized areas in Africa (Angola, Mozambique, Cape Verde, São Tomé e Príncipe, Guinea Bissau...), South America (Brazil, parts of Uruguay), Asia (Goa, Macau, Sri Lanka, Malacca...), and Oceania (East Timor...), creating an empire. The Portuguese language continues to be the biggest connection between these countries, and Roman Catholicism continues to be the dominant religion throughout much of the former Portuguese empire.

What People Are Saying

★★★★★
"Micael, our guide was knowledgeable, friendly and very accommodating. We were able to spend the time we wanted at both locations, making adjustments to times since we were the only ones on the tour. We were very impressed with the castle and the Church of Christ in Tomar. Would definitely recommend to anyone who is interested in the religious aspect of Fatima and the history of the Templar’s in Tomar. Lunch was excellent, yummy octopus rice."
★★★★★
"A great evenig in a lovely cellar surrounded by wineyards. A beautiful place with a family business touch. Exceptional customer care by Marcia (our tour guide) and amazing wines to choose from. Highly recommended!"
★★★★★
"This was an excellent all day tour and one of the highlights of our holiday. Although we had toured the island extensively by hire car we gained so much more from this private tour. Our guide was very knowledgeable and answered all our questions and much more. We are keen gardeners and the diversity of the island flora was of great interest to us. We came away feeling we knew much more about Madeira her history, economy and people than we would otherwise have done. Highly recommended."

"Our family of four had the most enjoyable and memorable experience seeing the highlights of Sintra with Miguel who was a very warm, fun, and knowledgeable private guide! He was very flexible with our itinerary and went out of his way to make sure we were enjoying every minute of the trip. We saw Sintra through the eyes of a local. He was clearly very passionate about the history and beauty of Sintra. Highly recommend Miguel and his private tour for a lifetime experience you won’t forget! "
