We have been on 4 other Smartours' trip and this was great especially Romina as the tour guide. The itinerary was superb and the pace was just right. Always enjoy the small size of the group.

Norma C

Our tour ,Treasures of Portugal with SmarTours, was a great value. It was well organized, with great, very knowledgeable tour guide. Would definitely travel with SmarTours again.

Diane R

This was the first Smart Tour I took. Our tour guide was spectacular!!!! Anna was knowledgeable and accommodating to the diverse group’s physical capabilities, as the tour required a lot of walking. Portugal was beautiful. I especially enjoyed the wine tours, cork factory, and making our own Portugal cod cakes. I also enjoyed going to the various cities and learning about the history of Portugal. I would have preferred to have had just 3 stops instead of the 4 so that we could have had more time to explore and shop on our own. The accommodations were good as was the hotel staff. I would consider another SmartTour in the future!

"Our tour to Portugal exceeded our expectations thanks to our tour lead Romina Novio. She managed everything in the tour. She was very kind, and lovable and best of all knowledgeable of Portugal history and traditions. Portugal is a beautiful country with a lot of history and very nice people. As always, Smartours selects the best hotels in each city. In general, it was a great experience!

The trip to Portugal and the Azores was a great value, very comprehensive and let by two excellent tour directors. We were never rushed and learned so much about the history of the places we visited. Food and wine was great everywhere. The Azores was the most beautiful place on earth. I highly recommend this trip.

Amelia Custodio, Tour guide Trip to Portugal, Oct 3-13, 2022 We want to extend our deep appreciation for our marvelous tour guide, Amelia Custodio, who led our recent trip to Portugal on Oct 3-13, 2022. Our tour to Portugal exceeded our expectations, thanks to Amelia who made this trip an unforgettable experience. She demonstrated leadership skills. Within the short time of our arrival,  Amelia established the rules which created a positive atmosphere and made everyone of the the group feel very welcome. To every site which was mentioned in the Smartours daily excursion, Amelia provided a thorough historical and cultural background of the site which enriched our knowledge and experience. She also emphasized the importance of being on time and requested that all members of the tour be punctual. She was extremely sensitive to the needs of each individual. For example, if someone didn’t feel well,  she offered to help. If someone had special dietary needs, Amelia made arrangements with the restaurant to satisfy the traveler’s dietary needs. Although, the group was heterogeneous in terms of age and ability, Amelia made everyone feel comfortable and motivated.

Great trip. Worst night was last night in lisbon. Driver had no idea where to go. Hotel was not up to standards. We were supposed to stay by airport but didn’t. When in Porto I would recommend going into doura valley. Spent too much time in Fatima. Dinner. Before going to Azores was nice but poorly managed by restaurant. Tour guides were both terrific. Knowledgeable and caring. Always very helpful.

dan u

mina is the best guide of all the smartour tours we have enjoyed....she is portugal!!! it was a great trip, packed with the highlights of the country. best tour for the money as we talked to others using other companies....we had the best.

Laurie H

Ana, our guide, made the trip absolutely wonderful. Her knowledge of Portugal is beyond belief.. what a treasure trove of information and so very kind/thoughtful and organized. We could have never seen Portugal's most famous sites without the organization and pre-planning of this tour. Best to bring Euros along as the US dollar is not received and changing money is not so easy. The hotels were nice and situated well for access to many wonderful restaurants and shops. Loved the castles, cobblestones and stories of Kings and Queens.

Jacki

The Treasures of Portugal tour was amazing. Romina, our tour director, was absolutely fantastic. The historical information shared with us was invaluable and she watched after us every step of the way. This is my second experience with SmarTours and the accommodations, tour highlights and everything included have been an incredible value. I am looking forward to my next trip!

Dear Smartours- We enjoyed getting a taste of Portugal-"Treasures of Portugal"; such a beautiful country with kind people. Our wonderful tour director Manuela Nikas was very rich in knowledge and highly intelligent. I was amazed at all her historical expertise which made the trip so interesting. She was great! You are very fortunate to have her! I especially appreciated her getting my bag back for me that the locally hired bus driver forgot onboard. Thanks to her, I received it before leaving Porto. Itinerary wise, I wish there were more meals included besides breakfasts. Only 2 dinners included?? Most of the group have traveled with Smartours before and were shocked not more meals were provided. This caused a huge problem for those not familiar with each city, and especially for the older people in our group. I've been on tours that set up a few lunches at cities en route. This provided a unique experience tasting the local cuisine. We did enjoy staying at least 2 nights at each city. Guarda was not worth stopping. Way out of the way and not worth it since most of the group could not even climb to the top of the fortress. In Lisbon, the walking city tour should've been included and not been an optional tour charging 40 euros. When we first landed in Porto, the city tour was included which offered a nice intro to the city. Sintra was amazing and could've included Cascais or Quinta Regaleira as well for that price. The optional tours were very overpriced. A handful of our group made their arrangements for their optional tours and paid less than what SmarTours charged. They boasted seeing way more than us paying fewer euros for double the time with added places. SmarTours should offer something unique to what local tours are offering. That way people on the tour feel they are getting something that others cannot get on their own. We also missed not having a dedicated bus driver for the entire tour. Hiring local bus drivers are not as dedicated as having just one person throughout the trip. The suggested tip should've been clarified. It stated US dollars but then to find out that in the smaller cities, it's hard for locals to exchange small amounts and service charges. People were confused why tip was in dollars but optional tours were in Euros. Be consistent, please. You can simply state the suggested tip in US dollars but clarify it should be paid in euros. Then people can do the math and figure out the exchange rate. Don't cut back on little details and short change SmarTours' good reputation. Sincerely Colleen S. And Stella M. Oct 15-25, 2019
