I will be arriving in Ponta Delgada on April 6, 2014 and would like to know if there are any locals that can speak English and would be willing to take my wife on a tour for a reasonable price to see the main points of interest. In addition, I would also like to be taken to a records office to look for potential relatives. All my great grandparents were born in the Azores on my mother's side. I know the Machado one came from Terceira, the Cunha (or da Cuhna) from Graciosa, but my great grandmother who married Manuel Cunha, Mary Josephine Coelho Ramos born 11 Aug 1866 might have come from Sao Miguel. I would like to look into it if possible. Any help would be appreciated for the tour and possible records office. Thank you.
Wondering if anyone knows how much it costs to tour Torre de Belem, what the hours are, phone number, etc.
There is little restaurant that looks like an old train cabin inside. Serves salads, sandwiches, ice cream and the best red sangria I've ever had. If anyone knows the name of it and share? I think it had 29 in the name of it.
Hi - I'm coming to beautiful Madeira end of this month and staying in Jardim do Mar. I've found out there are buses from there to Calheta - are there many buses from Calheta to take to visit other parts of the island?
Apart from a couple of organised trips - I'm planning just to relax and see where I end up!
Any bus advice would be great. Thanks :)
how to get from lisbon airport to Fatima on May 13, 2014
Hi - we're a retired couple living in Gozo, hoping to relocate to Portugal in the Spring. Prefer old, characteristic places, not big resorts, but because of slight mobility problems, need to be able to walk to the sea and amenities. Tavira has been suggested - can anyone help with general info - rental costs for a 2 bedrm place, utilities. cost of living ? Any help would be hugely appreciated - we intend to come on a fact finding holiday but can't afford to make mistakes and choose the wrong location. Many thanks.
I am planning to travel by train by Coimbra to Evora. It mentions a brief stop at Lisbon for a couple of minutes. Do we need to change trains at Lisbon or is it like another stop for people to get in and out and no change of train is involved. Thanks in advance.
