  • star rating  Portugal - Ricardo was more than accommodating! His help and service was 5 star. He coordinated so many things for us, was there to make sure we made our activities. We had 3 drivers that were personable, safe and kind. Jakim (totally did not spell this correctly) was my favorite although the other two drivers were safe and informative on our drives from city to city. I can’t say enough about Ricardo’s service. He was always available to text or call for any questions or suggestions. I would totally reserve his services again when in Portugal!

  • star rating  Punctuality, well planned, friendliness, well adjusted for our needs and expectations of the places visited, excellent vehicles, great restaurant suggestions were important factors that made us enjoy the whole experience. Since the beginning when we contacted the agency, Ricardo managed to arrange our trip and tours according to our needs. Our tour guide, Carlos, was knowledgeable in almost every aspect of Portugal history as well as the country's folklore. He tried to please everyone in our group making a perfect balance in the activities we performed. We have traveled in Europe, Australia, Africa, South and Central America as well as United States. Comparing the overall experience of 4U2Enjoy with other companies that we have been in contact, this has been one of the best!!!

  • star rating  Who would’ve thought that a car trip from Porto to Lisbon would be one of the highlights of our family trip to Portugal?! I arranged our itinerary with Ricardo who was extremely responsive and helpful. Our tour guide and driver, Carlos, picked us up at our hotel in Porto in an immaculately clean Mercedes van and drove us to Lisbon with stops at Coimbra, Nazare and Obidos along the way. Carlos is very knowledgeable about Portugal and gave us a great overview of the country’s history and geography. He also provided us with helpful information about each city we visited. Ricardo arranged a lunch for us at a wonderful restaurant with a beautiful view of the ocean in Nazare. What an amazing way to travel between the two cities! I can’t recommend Ricardo and Carlos more highly!

  • star rating  Wonderful company, staff, tours! - We had a wonderful experience with 4U2Enjoy, and have nothing but compliments for this company, but really for the people we interacted with. We decided to use them based on the reviews we read on this site (which we don't always fully trust), but in this case, the reviews were 100% accurate. Ricardo was extremely helpful and communicative from the moment we reached out to him a few weeks before arriving in Portugal. We spoke to him in person and he helped us design 2 different customized tours. I felt from the first time I interacted with him that this was a very personal company with very personal service, and that was exactly our experience during the planning process as well as during the tours. We were met at the airport and transported to Porto in a luxury vehicle. We were fortunate to have Miguel as our driver and tour guide, and he was incredible. For such a young man, he is extremely knowledgeable and professional. It is clear that he is passionate about his job and his enthusiasm in sharing his country with us was amazing, not to mention the amount of knowledge he has...there was not one question we asked him that he didn't know the answer to, and we asked a lot of them! We spent the entire day with him after landing in Lisbon, jet lagged and having only spent a few hours sleeping on the plane, yet we were able to really enjoy the long day which included three different short city tours and an incredible authentic Portuguese lunch in Nazare. It ended up being one of the best days we had while in Portugal, and we were fortunate to have another opportunity to drive back to Lisbon with Miguel stopping in other places along the way. We will definitely use this company again for any transportation or touring we do next time we are in Portugal and highly recommend them to anyone who is seeking the same.
