    • What tours and levadas should I take?

      Região Autónoma da Madeira 20 hours ago

      Hello,

      I'm spending my summer holiday in Madeira, between 25th of August-01st of September. I read about the tours and levadas and I would like you to give some advice: is it ok/ worth it to make all the full day tours (East, West, North, West)? And what half day levadas would you recommend? Not interested in being an easy path but a beautiful one.

      Many thanks,
      Adriana

      Is it common to take cable/ bicycle lock to lock the luggage under the coach?

      Is it ok to go on trekking on the Flores Island just by yourself (we are 2 friends) or is it advisable to go on with organized programs (if there are any)?

      flying into Porto from ponta Delgado and out of Lisbon. I already have the last 3 nights booked in Lisbon at grapes and bites ( pretty excited) planning on a couple nights in Porto. have books, have internet, have info on Douro valley stuff, but not sure how to spend those days in between. no car here, have one for five days on sau Miguel. I really do not think after the Azores we need beach stuff. (we tend to like the warm water anyway) wine and port, well yes. history and ruins, yes. beautiful scenery..yes. organized tours not so much unless very low key. Anthony bourdain about to come on tv on Lisbon! yes I know 1000 people have pages on Portugal. most of all vt pages are boring facts I can get out of a book. I am sure there are great ones but not necessarily the top ones or what I want.the questions actually gave me the most honest answers.

      Chilled out place with surf near Faro: any recommendations?

      Portugal May 13, 2015 at 2:14 PM

      Hi! I am doing a cycling tour through Europe and will fly home from Faro. I am looking for a cool, chilled out, surfy place to stay within about 100km of Faro airport... I will probably be on my own; so would like to relax, unwind, swim, surf a bit and eat in nice restaurants and recover after, hopefully an epic cycle! I am not too keen on full-on tourist towns and would love to be near local people, towns and sights... If you can recommend an actual hotel/rental in the town area, I would greatly appreciate it...

      Simple, clean place, self catering, near enough to the beach and amenities..

       

      Thank you for reading!

      Dave.

      ps: I will be arriving in Faro around the 10th-15th of August...so I am a bit worried that everything will be booked up!

    • Lisbon and day trips

      Lisbon May 2, 2015 at 8:45 AM

      I'm coming to Lisbon in mid June. I heard that Lisbon is the most beautiful city, but I also want to see other places in Portugal.

      My flight is to Lisbon and I'll be landing at 19:30 PM, so I'm thinking to stay in Lisbon for this night. and after I have 7 full days, so this is my plan, tell me if it's good or should I change anything:
      Day 1 - train from Lisbon-oriente in the morning to Porto (if I take the 7:00 AM train or even 6:09 is it safe to walk alone to oriente?) and staying at a hotel in Porto for the night.
      Day 2 - A bit more of Porto, and then a train to aveiro (I was in Venice, they say it's "little venice") and after another train to Lisbon. from now on each day I stay in Lisbon for the nights.
      Day 3 - exploring Lisbon
      Day 4 - exploring Lisbon
      Day 5 - train to Sintra, cabo da roca and Cascais (can I combine all 3 or even add estoril on the same day??)
      Day 6 - train to Obidos and back to Lisbon
      Day 7 - Another day in Lisbon

      Is that doable and a good plan?? Are the trains cheap (for example, how much would it cost to go from Lisbon to Porto both ways?) Is there a 10 strip card or anything to make it cheaper?

      Also, I understand that Bairro Alto is the place in Lisbon for the nights. Do you think that it's better to search an hotel there or is it far from center? I saw a cheap hotel in Baixa district... is it center/safe area? Can I go from there to Bairro Alto by walk each night?

      Looking for your answers, Thanks in advance!

    • Porto to Guimaraes at night?

      by jahoneo Online Now Jun 14, 2011 at 12:25 AM

      Hello dear travelers and locals,

      I was going to Guimaraes for a business trip next month. I was looking through different airlines to purchase a ticket, and the one I liked will arrive at Porto at 23:50 at night. Will I be able to go to Guimaraes at this time by train or bus? What is the operating time of public transports in that area? If anyone could answer, I would be grateful. Thank you.

      Transportation from Porto and "the safety question"

      by nomad7890 Online Now Apr 5, 2009 at 8:21 PM

      Have decided to visit Guimaraes as a side trip from Porto.

      Is it easy to get from Porto to Guimaraes? It appears that the train connections change, so I do not know if there is a better way.

      Once in Guimaraes, is it also a place where tourists get hassled? Is it OK to go as a woman traveling alone using public transportation?

      There is an option of a tour that goes to Braga and Guimaraes (yuk) - but I will consider it if going on my own will be a hassle.

      Any experiences/advise/suggestions?
