Carmen is FANTASTIC! My sister and I had so much fun on our Portugal trip. The excursions she had planned for us were phenomenal. All the guides were friendly and experts in their field which gave us a well-rounded experience. Carmen also checked on us from time to time via text messages and answered all our questions with patience and kindness. She was also able to make a last-minute change in our itinerary and handled it efficiently. All the hotels we stayed at were gorgeous and the staff were super helpful.

Hotel Reviews
Lisboa Prata Boutique Hotel
Lisboa

Central location with amazing history in the hotel itself. The staff is super helpful and kind. Loved the breakfast and the concept that it doesn't have specific timings like other hotels. You just let the staff know when to expect you in the mornings for breakfast and what you want, and they handle the rest.

Authenticity & Character
The archeological floor in the hotel is very nice- don't miss out!
Location
Very quick walk from the town center and right next to lot of good restaurants.

Algarve Kayaking Trip to Benagil Caves
Algarve Kayaking Trip to Benagil Caves
Portugal

A must do fun activity on the water!! Benagil Caves is magnificent. The guides Patrick and Sam were great. If you can't kayak don't worry you have a small lesson before going out on the water and there are always two guides with the group. The tour guides give you a brief history of the caves and how they were formed. They take you to other smaller caves as well, that's what sets this tour apart from the rest.
