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.

"Mid of december we’re lucky enoguh to see mama and baby bright whale! Beside that the tirp was very nice, it was warm and sunny. The crew was very engaged. We’d recommend this to our friends for sure."

"My experience with João was one that I will never forget. He was so extremely charismatic, laid-back and knowledgeable. I immediately felt as ease when he picked us up right outside of our hotel. His English is perfect and he is a great conversationalist. The trip itself was magnificent. I am so so glad I found this experience. João picked us up and we went to the Mateus palace. I learned so much just from talking with João. He went with us to do everything all day. From the private tour, to a great home cooked meal (that was one of the best meals of my life), to Port tasting in the Douro Valley, to going out on the river — João with us and made sure we were having a great time. It would not have been the same without him there! He was such a pleasure to be around. He brought us port and homemade custard pasteries that his family made. And was talk photos of me and my dad the entire time!! I had such a great time the entire day and I felt so taken care of and at ease. Every single penny was well worth it. I will never forget this day. And it was unforgettably amazing in a large part due to Joao. Thank you for everything. I cannot wait to return and have another tour! I cannot recommend this company and João enough!!!"

"We did the trip yesterday and it was truly impressive! We were incredibly lucky as we saw a large group of dolphins that were playful and really “sociable”. And after that we spotted around 5-6 whales! They came very close to us (or we went very close to them) and it was one of the best experiences! The crew was super passionate and knowledgeable - very keen to give us a lot of details about the wildlife as well as the Madeiran cost! I highly recommend it!"
★★★★★
"I cannot overemphasise how worthwhile this experience was, while I planned this to be initially a birthday present for my girlfriend it evolved into a plan to propose to her and I could not have asked for a better day, customer focused staff, historical journey and A+ dining experience. The food was exquisite and personal while I'm not very fond of fish I would gladly dine on every dish that was served on our trip. The chefs and wait staff were super focused, courteous and helpful throughout the trip. The view, if you had to choose one thing about this trip it would be the views (but there is so much more to this experience) - the Douro Valley/River are simply stunning and you get a view so few get to enjoy, especially in such style, and appreciate through the day and into the evening. The vineyard you visit at the end is breathtaking and a step back into their history and information on how it works is perfectly provided in English and Portuguese by the owner Gonçalo Castel-Branco (Thank you!). This is simply one trip you cannot afford to miss and with the limited number of runs each year I highly recommend making this journey at the very least once in your life. To Sofia and staff - thank you. You made our engagement perfect and made planning it a very easy task. You will see us again at some point as this is now part of our life story and a part we will want to revisit."
★★★★★
"Even though the weather was not the best, it was a fantastic experience. The train is a museum piece that is worth a visit in itself, the views are beautiful and the food excellent. The quinta do Vesúvio and its porto wines was a cherry on the cake! If you can, do it."
★★★★★
"Everything was perfect !! Food, Wine, Staff, View, Weather. I recommend this trip to everyone because it’s so unique and delicious."
