It was during the 20th century that the sea attracted outsiders in search of the excellent sheltered beaches with prime conditions for water sports, making this peaceful place a busy summer resort.

The excellent local cuisine, specializing in shellfish and fresh fish, deserves a special mention and this can be tasted in the numerous local restaurants.

Wine is one of the most valued products in Portugal. Weather conditions associated with the quality of the soil allow the production of wines of high-quality award-winning worldwide.

In the surrounding area, the Sanctuary of Nossa Senhora do Cabo Espichel is worth a visit and on the cliff next to it one can see dinosaur footprints.

All our tours can be customized to best suit your travel ideas and itinerary.

    Ricardo helped us preplan a wonderful itinerary. Jose Anthony, our driver, was knowledgeable, pleasant, accommodating and flexible. He introduced us to people and places during our 3 days spent with him, sharing with us the history and culture of Portugal. My adult son, daughter and I thoroughly enjoyed the trip and would reach out to Ricardo and Jose Anthony in the future.

    A fantastic experience with great, customized service. I wanted to squeeze in a trip to Monchique from the Algrave. Ricardo was responsive and accommodated my schedule. Miguel was a fabulous guide and was professional and kind. I love being able to support a small business while receiving excellent service. Customized luxury at its best. I will rebook with them when I return.

    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!
