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

★★★★★
"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!"
★★★★★
"Cette unité transforme le liège brut en demi-produits qui seront à leur tour transformés en produits finis divers dans d'autres entreprises. La visite est très documentée, ce qui permet de comprendre un métier très peu connu. L'ambiance de la visite est excellente, tout le personnel est attentif à donner les meilleures explications possibles. Visite à recommander tout particulièrement. Raymond et Marie-Jo"

"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."
★★★★★
"Cheers to our very personable and very informative tour guide, Antonio! The winery experiences he arranged for us were all awesome. Incredible views, terrific wines, and very warm and welcome receptions at each of the wineries. My friends and I loved this tour and I would heartily recommend it for anyone planning to visit this incredible wine country. I'm convinced that your guide's personal relationships with wineries makes all the difference!"

"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!!!"
