We had a wonderful trip through Portugal and so enjoyed it- thank you for helping us with planning it and finding us great places to stay.
We left the GPS with the hotel in Porto as we did not realize we could leave it in a mailbox in the airport-we thought we had to take it to the post office and it might not be opened. The Concierge in Porto said he would put it in the mail for us so I so hope that is OK.
It was great to have the GPS and to have options as we drove through the country. We chose to leave Coimbra a day early as we realized that we would be better rested if we stayed in 1 place longer, and as interesting as the castles and side trips were, we were more interested in being in Porto and getting more of a solid feel for the city. We appreciate your flexibility and being able to change our itinerary while we were there and not being charged for it.
All the people in every single hotel/pousada you booked us at could not have been more gracious. We do not eat “traditional Portuguese” food and were able to be pointed towards really good options in each city. Also, they our guides were timely and interesting and able, based on what we already did, to show us other sites. Finally, thank you so much for helping with getting our daughter Sydney to Spain, esp after her first flight was cancelled.
Again, thank you so so much…we will absolutely recommend you when we know of others going to Portugal,

“John and I are home again and engaged in many local family and friend events as well as working and volunteering in our community. However, playing it out in the backs of our minds are memories of the wonderful experiences we had last month in Portugal. We loved the entire country and were so happy we had decided to stay within its boundaries for our first visit to Europe in many decades. We want to thank you for all your help and the fabulous travel aids (our itinerary, the GPS, the prearranged accommodation and site guides, the welcoming package, and the airport assistants etc.) that made our time exciting and pretty much stress-free.
We really had an amazing time and have recommended PortugalTrails to friends and acquaintances. John wanted to make sure you got the GPS back!!! We mailed it from the airport….even that was an easy process!”
