Alfredo and his associate Maria provided a superior tour experience. We spent 15 days in Spain and Portugal, and our time in Portugal was our favorite part of our family vacation. Alfredo's extraordinary hospitality, attention to detail, flexibility, and desire to share the best of Porto was a huge factor in our experience.
We booked the Porto walking tour and the Alto Duro tour with Alfredo. As the chief planner of our vacation it was a relief to have someone else complete all the arrangements. Alfredo's knowledge and connections at local vineyards, restaurants, museums helped us have a unique and delightful experience we will never forget. I would say that the Quinta da Pacheca wine tasting and restaurant was an experience that was otherworldly. It was such an amazing experience that our three children (19, 21,and 22) wanted to purchase a premium bottle of port to enjoy at each of their eventual weddings. The bottles are a fun reminder of a day that would be difficult to top.
In addition to these two tours, Alfredo was able to customize an all day adventure driving us from Porto to Sintra. We had only 5 full days in Portugal, so in order to see a few of the sites in between Porto and Sintra Alfredo provided an itinerary custom made to see some of the main attractions including Aveiro, Coimbra, and Obidos. As if this wasn't splendid enough, he arranged a lunch and a swim in the fabulous pool at Palacio da Lousa a boutique, historic hotel.
If you want an amazing experience with a guide that makes your enjoyment his top priority look no further. I have recommended our Porto experience and Tourvent to everyone I have shared our vacation details with. Safe and happy travels!
