Flanked by Spain and the Atlantic Ocean, Portugal seems to enchant anyone who has made a trip along its 1,800 km of pristine coastline. With picturesque vineyards, jagged cliffs and hilly cities, history can be found on every cobblestoned street, and the Portugal experience is different for each traveller. Warm people and delicious food are central to every visit. If salted cod and fresh sardines are everyday staples, the PastĂ©is de BelĂ©m pastry is now an institution in its own right.

Highlights included the boat tour in Lagos; experiencing grilled sardines, a day of rest by the beach; Aveiro, the University of Coimbra; FĂˇtima, Port & wine tastings; NazarĂ© was beautiful, PalĂˇcio Nacional & Cabo da Roca. All of Lisbon was a pleasure. The people in the group were fantastic. Diana was masterful in making us feel at ease, included and valued. She made a point of connecting, supporting, and ensuring we had fun. We would definitely travel with Diana and Approach again.
As first-time travellers with Approach Tours we were very impressed with the overall service. Hotel quality, three meals a day, transportation, luggage handling, excellent guides and tour guru, variety in citiesâ€¦ everything was phenomenal!
Caroline made this tour for me. She is competent, friendly, and fun. I also appreciated the â€śextrasâ€ť that were purchased by Approach en route. Other tours did not often do that. Jorge was a very knowledgeable guide. He is a wealth of information about his country and its history. You canâ€™t go wrong working with him.
The wine tasting, lunch, and tour of the port wine facility were great! I thought it could not be surpassed, but the next day in Tomar honestly blew me away â€“ just spectacular. Then we had a couple of relaxing days in Evora â€“ which was great timing.
Lisbon tour (old Portugal) was great; Sintra town was wonderful. Boat rides were all good (all 3 of them!) â€“ even though I get seasick, I enjoy all of them very much! We enjoy the pace â€“ enough time to recover between trips. All-inclusive idea was great with exclusive visits. The winery on the Douro Valley was wonderful. Good job!
Douro wine tasting and lunch definitely were a highlight. Algarve sea tour was excellent. Our tour group of people were wonderful and I felt very fortunate to meet such a great group of people. I wouldnâ€™t change anything. Will definitely be recommending Approach to friends and family.
Wine tasting in Porto, and in the Algarve, the Templar Church in Tomar, all the monumentsâ€¦ truly it is the variety that makes the tour so wonderful. Marie Claude was exceptional. Very attentive, kind, and organized. She really made the whole trip.
We especially liked the trip to Sintra, the Knights Templar & the wineries in the Douro area. The lunch at the one winery was exceptional! The daily scheduling was great – not too strenuous with good start times!
Just returned from Portugal with Approach Tours and it was AMAZING!!!! The ALL-INCLUSIVE package made everything worry-free from the airport transfers, flights, meals, attractions, and assistance with options for free time. All we had to do was pack! The upscale hotels were conveniently located for “free time” exploration and the meals were sensational (you will never go hungry)! The itinerary allowed for sufficient aside from exploring the many wonders of the area. Our guide, Alexandra was FANTASTIC! Her knowledge of Portugal and her storytelling ability made history come alive! She was also EXCEPTIONAL at adapting to the needs of the group. Portugal is so much more than just Lisbon (not to take anything away from the city which we LOVED). However, the rest of the country has so much diversity to offer and it is absolutely safe wherever you travel. We will definitely return to Portugal again in the future as we now have more of a comfort level with the various areas. Thank you Approach Tours. Looking forward to South Africa in the spring!
