We had a terrific time in Portugal!  We thoroughly enjoyed our excursions and want to extend our appreciation to our driver and guides who were just fantastic! Thank you for all you did to see that we had great accommodations, transportation, and excursions! 

Mrs. Jane and Amy Kiernan, Illinois, USA, December 2023

 

Our driver was fantastic. Each part of the experience was well planned and effortless on our part, which we appreciate.

Mr. Donald Thomas, Silver Spring, USA, November 2023

 

The drivers and guides were exceptional. We had a great variety of things to see and do. The timing of our tours was in the morning so we could be the first in line to avoid the crowds. We greatly appreciated your attention to all the details. Portugal Deluxe is outstanding. I would recommend you to anyone traveling to Portugal.

Mrs. Barbara Edgar and Ms. Frances Ryan, Georgia, USA, November 2023

 

We thoroughly enjoyed our day to Fatima, Alcobaca and Batalha, with our driver and our guide. They were both extremely knowledgeable and pleasant to be with and the arrangements for the day were great”

Mrs. Colleen Campanella, Missouri, USA, November 2023

 

We have had an amazing few days! Everyone is so nice & easy going in Portugal. The winery & food was fabulous and perfect short boat to end off the day. The sidecar made the perfect day and escaped the rain with lovely chats. We ended today with a delicious lunch. Had no idea how good the food is in Portugal and all the Michelin rated. 

Mrs. Terri Myerson, California, USA, November 2023

 

We LOVED every minute of our trip to Portugal! Thank you for all of your careful planning. All of our logistics were easy and beautifully executed - from expert transportation and knowledgeable guides to sumptuous meals, and lavish entertainment. Our driver, Vando, was with us for several days and we always felt comfortable and safe with him on the roads. Our meals were outstanding - from the divine lunches on the go, to the 12 course Michelin starred extravaganza on our final night of the trip. Thanks for a memorable voyage of both active discovery and much needed relaxation.

Indagare Clients, Minnesota, USA, July 2023

 

My husband and I had a wonderful experience. Portugal is a beautiful country and this trip definitely rated high on our travel experiences. The highlights included the tour of Porto with Sara, the visit to the Douro Valley winery and river cruise and the cooking class in Lisbon. Thank you so much for your expertise.

Mrs. Lisa and Mr. Gary Ayers, Pennsylvania, USA, June 2023

 

Best part of journey was our guides and Six Senses! All and all it was beautiful and wonderful taste of Portugal.

Mrs. Kathleen and Mr. James Lowe, California, USA, June 2023

 

Excellent tour guides, drivers and hotels (Six Senses in a league by itself). Portugal Deluxe was fantastic in putting it all together.

Mr. Malcolm Deam, Illinois, USA, June 2023

 

Everything went wonderfully with my tour operation! Thank you for working with me ahead of the tour operation to develop what turned out to be a perfect itinerary!  I am so pleased with Portugal Deluxe. Guide and Driver were both excellent. The guide was truly an EXPERT guide... She knew so much and answered all my questions. It was clear to me that she was a true professional and skilled at being a guide! She was a pleasure to spend time with, and I enjoyed every sight and experience we had together. Driver was amazing and professional.... skilled at navigating tough stretches of road. He was always present when we were ready to move onto the next sights! So, my experience with Portugal Deluxe was excellent! I will recommend your organization highly to anyone I know who will be visiting Portugal in the future.  Thank you so much for an amazing experience in Lisbon, Sintra, and Cascais!

Anonymous, Pittsburg, USA, June 2023

 

We had a wonderful visit to your BEAUTIFUL country! All the arrangements you made for us were perfect, it could not have been better! While we were disappointed for the closures in Sintra, Helena and Hugo did their best for alternative stops and we still had a beautiful day. Helena is an outstanding guide, very personable and friendly. Hugo was a very good driver and also very friendly. We were very happy not to be driving ourselves and to have him driving the van, which was very clean and comfortable. 
Thank you for all you did for us. Our trip exceeded all of our expectations for sure!!

Mrs. Judy Supple, California, USA, May 2023

 

Everything was perfect! Thank you! Drivers and guides were all truly amazing! Hotels were absolutely spectacular! We may have eaten and drank too much, but that’s on us! Fabulous vacation all around!  Thank you for everything!  We can’t wait to come back!

Mrs. Robin Easton, New York, USA, April 2023

 

We had a FABULOUS time. Sophia was absolutely wonderful. We couldn't have asked for a better experience.
The driver and Sophia were so nice and knowledgeable. She was amazing! We are so glad she joined us for lunch as we learned even more about the food and how to order from the menu. Portugal is absolutely beautiful. The people are nice, very friendly, and helpful.
It is a very clean country. I am looking forward to coming back. Thank you again for everything you put together for us.

Mrs. Joy Rons, New Jersey, USA, February 2023

 

The land tour with Portugal Deluxe was great. The guides and drivers were excellent and the tours provided a good variety of things to see and do. Portugal was really great!

Mr. & Mrs. Dawnson, Honolulu, USA, November 2022

 

I am back home and still smiling about my wonderful time in Portugal!  I shared with Peter before the end of the trip how very happy we were and how I have never experienced the level and quality of ground support that your team provided. The guides and drivers were amazing and incredibly attentive to us, and our “tweaks” to the schedule, and it was wonderful to be able to flex depending on how the day was going.
The communication between all team members (including you) was great. 

Mrs. Catherine Rose, Illinois, USA, October 2022

 

Our dear Mother/Daughter clients, Tammy and Cassidy Rooke are having a WONDERFUL time!  They are so happy and love their guides, tours, drivers, hotels, and meals they are having!  Tammy texts me every couple of days and is so happy...even in the rain! Thank you sooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooo much for your fine details in planning this once in a lifetime experience for Tammy and Cassidy!

Mrs. Rosie Flanagan, Texas, USA, October 2022

 

Just had a lovely chat with Tom & Lauren. They absolutely loved the trip! Really enjoyed the guides/drivers being so knowledgeable and nice.
I’m so glad we booked the Tuk Tuk because they both commented on that a few times. Thank you again for everything!

Mrs. Terri Myerson, California, USA, October 2022

 

Everything was terrific and worked out as planned. The hotels were all beautiful, particularly the Six Senses and the Vila Vita.  Both of those also had amazing breakfasts. The guides were very informative, and offered lots of useful information and suggestions. I also thought the schedules were done well, with seeing a lot of things. It kept us busy, but not too much, and still gave us time on our own. Even the drivers were very good. We both enjoyed Tiago in Porto/Douro valley and Samuel in Lisbon.

Mr. Freeman, Illinois, USA, September 2022

 

I just had a long conversation with Dr/Mrs Glassman. Their remarks can be easily summarized with the comment  “wonderful trip.” The Glassman’s were impressed with all the cars, drivers and guides. They especially commented on the fact that on days when they did not have a driver and a guide but just a driver/guide that person was especially knowledgeable. Hotels were all very, very nice. 

Mrs. Margery C. Coen, Chicago, USA, September 2022

 

We had an amazing time the Azores are just stunning and feel like a mix of so many different landscapes. Definitely a very unique and lovely place to visit, full of activities but also very relaxing. Even the trip advisor tours we did had fantastic guides and were wonderful. We already talk about going back to see the islands we skipped this time.  

Mr.Gibbons & Ms.Jaspers, california, USA, August 2022

 

Our trip was wonderful, and we so appreciate all your work during the planning and while we were in Portugal. Our driver Joao (spelling?) was outstanding! We loved Quinta da Comporta! The staff there was absolutely outstanding! The staff at the hotel was absolutely 5 star! Every meal reservation you made was delicious! Our activity guides were wonderful! And, Claudia in Lisbon was wonderful! The boat from Cascais to Lisbon was spectacular. Bairro Hotel was outstanding. Alma restaurant was outstanding

Mrs. Broner and family, New York, USA, August 2022

 

Our 10-day itinerary to explore and savor four of the Azores islands could not have been more thoughtfully planned nor more perfectly executed. Our days were full, varied and yet relaxed. Our guides and drivers were knowledgeable and pleasant company. Each responded well to any adjustments or suggestions we made. The hotels were all wonderful and the three special picnics that Portugal Deluxe arranged for us in nature reserves were interestingly different and delicious. There were too many favorite moments and sites to single anyone out!!

Mrs. Susan Bateson and Mr. Stephen Fuller, Virginia, USA, July 2022

 

I truly appreciate all of your efforts on behalf of the Huber’s and Fleming’s trip and all of the last minute adjustments and changes that we needed to make. Your cooperation and assistance was just outstanding. I have spoken with Bill Fleming and despite the horrible flight delays, lost luggage and airline difficulties they had a magnificent time once they arrived in Portugal. He enjoyed the various winery visits and had high praise for their driver who was with them throughout the trip. They also thought that the guides were excellent. Overall they loved the trip and the diversity of wineries was great! Thanks so much for all of your help with this program.

Mr. Michael Seibert, Massachusetts, USA, July 2022

 

Clients had the most incredible time. Their driver guide was hands down the highlight of the trip for them. They loved him, along with all of their guides. Everything ended up being perfect. Luz House was their favorite property.

Mr. Ried Stelly, New York, USA, July 2022

 

The trip was great and they did like Portugal a lot! The guide Olga was great very knowledgeable, she knows the country in all the aspects. The driver Paolo also was very good, professional and polite, speaks English very good. They liked very much the Gyulbenkyan museum! And Sintra as well, and they were happy that they have the possibility to go there the second time. Monastery in Tomar is tremendous! 

Mr. Fedorove, Moscow, Russia, January 2022

 

Lisbon is my new favorite city. I would love to go back and explore Portugal more. It's walkable, great public transport and the sights are amazing and the people are so friendly. And of course because we travel via our stomachs, the food & wine was amazing. The tour guide Maria was fantastic. Super knowledgeable. And Carlos was a great driver. The trip around Lisbon was great to get our bearings. The museum was A+. I think that in the future we would rather take the museum at our own pace. We each have our own interests and often split up to view different art. The trip to Sinestra and the coast was so awesome! I would love to go back and bike some of the parks.

Mr. and Mrs. Randall, New York, USA, January 2022

 

I can’t speak highly enough about the guides, drivers, and hotels arranged. (...) The guides were extremely well versed, spoke English perfectly, and were easy to be around. Thanks for all your help with this wonderful trip! We’ve thoroughly enjoyed our time in Portugal! 

Mr. & Mrs. Askanase, Texas, USA, October 2019

 

Six Senses finest property we have ever stayed at. Car and driver service professional, courteous and efficient. Highly recommend! DOC restaurant should have Michelin star. Portugal has much history, stunning geography and wonderful people.
