    • What tours and levadas should I take?

      Região Autónoma da Madeira May 27, 2015 at 4:21 AM

      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

    • Where should a foodie have dinner in Porto?

      Porto May 31, 2015 at 12:23 AM

      We are in Lisbon, going to Porto tomorrow. I like to find places where the locals eat, which means while Trip Advisor has great reviews, going to the restaurants recommended often means eating with a lot of other American tourists. Any advice on getting good Portuguese food?

    • Recommendations for Coastal town for honeymoon in August?

      Portugal May 29, 2015 at 8:21 PM

      I'm planning part of my honeymoon in Portugal. We will have 3 or 4 nights and can fly in anywhere (coming from Spain)but we will be departing from Lisbon. We were thinking we would like to head to the Algarve because it looks so beautiful but I'm hearing it's very touristy and there is a lot of partying.
      We prefer to beach, shop, eat & drink in lively but not jam-packed places that are beautiful, charming, and offer culture of the area. Ideally we're looking for anywhere within 4 hours or so of Lisbon.

      Thanks for any advice!

      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!

      Next year we are deciding to do 4 days in Lisbon, followed by a trek around Andalucia ie Cordoba, Seville and Granada. It works out that you cant travel by rail between the two cities. How is this so? Two big metropolitan area in south west |Spain/Portugal.

      Is it easier to do bt bus? Anyone know the bus company? Also someone mention a bus from Faro to Seville?

      Any ideas?

      My husband and I are going to be in Porto for a week in early May 2011 and would love to do a personalised tour of some of the wineries in the countryside. Alternatively a 3-4 night cruise where we get to visit some wineries as well would be great. Any suggestions would be appreciated.

      Thanks to those who responded to my first inquiry about going north or south. My colleague and I are heading north however I need some advice about the suggested iternerary below.
      Arrive in Lisbon (Sat.) and take train to Coimbra, stay at Hotel Astoria.
      Next day train up to Porto, find a day boat trip to Pinhao, try to stay at Vintage House Question: In case they are booked, are there other alternatives?
      Take riverside train back to Porto on Monday (stay one night) Question: Should we try to make it up to the Minho area? We have to be back in Lisbon Tuesday night.
      Your trusted travel advice is much appreciated.
