We started our company in the year of 2013. Since then, our aim was to show our guests the essence of Portugal. Clearly, the best way to do it is by taking small groups into meaningful places and spots that are representative of our culture and traditions.
With that in mind, over the last seven years we have been cultivating our relations, selecting our guides, our partners and deepening the bonds with the local workers and inhabitants.
Our expertly-designed itineraries include once-in-a-lifetime experiences, taking you to the must-see highlights as well as hidden gems not known to the typical tourist and leaving you feeling that you’ve really explored.
Our average group size is just 12, not so big that you’re lost in a coach-load of people, and big enough that you’ll find and make new friends. Our tours are perfect for travellers looking for the fun and reassurance of travelling with a small group. Equally, our tours suit couples, friends and families looking for stories to tell for a lifetime.
That way, our small group tours can really show what northern Portugal is all about. Explore our range of small group tours – which extraordinary destination will you choose?
