Tiago was an excellent planner who really took the time to understand what we were looking for. No detail was too small for him and he even made a personal apperance at the airport and picked us up, which was a nice touch after corresponding for months over email and phone. His responsiveness was fantastic (before, during, and even after the trip), his suggestions spot on, and his guidance was extremely helpful.

Tiago was an excellent planner who really took the time to understand what we were looking for. No detail was too small for him and he even made a personal apperance at the airport and picked us up, which was a nice touch after corresponding for months over email and phone. His responsiveness was fantastic (before, during, and even after the trip), his suggestions spot on, and his guidance was extremely helpful.

Also to be praised are Diogo (our tour guide in Lisbon) and Paula (our guide in Porto). Both were friendly, patient, professional, knowledagble, and fun to be around. We thoroughly enjoyed their company, all of Portugal, and all of its lovely people (almost all of whom speak some English).

We drove over 700 miles in 10 days and it never seemed tedious or boring. Love the Douro Valley and Porto; Nazaré ansd Obidos are small towns not to be missed. Just surprise yourself sometimes; Portugal is cool everywhere. Wasn't too crazy about the Fado dinner in Lisbon, but 1 event of 50 is a negligible and to be expected on any vacation.

Thanks Tiago; you rock!!!

Enjoy Dinner with Live Fado Music
Lisbon

The host at the restaurant was pretty rude, claiming that we were late when we weren't/ The food, while authentic, was not too good and not generous. I think for $90 one could do much better.
