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.

"Eu e meu marido fizemos o passeio por 3 quintas e ficamos impressionados com a beleza do Vale do Douro e a riqueza histórica da região. Nosso guia foi muito gentil e demonstrou profundo conhecimento da geografia e da história da região, algo que enriqueceu ainda mais esse passeio. Recomendo muito."

"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."
★★★★★
"We were very pleased with our trip today, there were four of us, two Spanish speakers and Pedro easily switched between Spanish and English to explain and provide information. We went to Bom Jesus and walked the many steps to the church at the top, then went to Braga Cathedral and had exclusive access to three special chapel (beware of the mummy of the Archbishop if you are squeamish) including a fascinating Moorish chapel. After a tour of the town we had an excellent lunch, soup or salmon salad, mackerel or veal, chocolate mousse or pannecotta, wine and coffee. We then went to Guimaraes and saw the castle and palace then had time to visit the town. All the entrance tickets were included so we did not need to queue to buy these. A very enjoyable trip and we would definitely recommend it."
