Tour Features


Experiences have not been selected at this time


The tour “Elegantly Portugal” was designed with the aim (accomplished) of promoting a one week private program in Portugal, but with controlled costs without prejudicing the service quality for which we are known. This control is achieved through several concepts, such as:

- Offering 3 hotel categories, all of them with great charm, but with different final prices for the level of service that each one of them provides. The client chooses and has the flexibility of adapting to the intended final price.

- Staying based in two main cities of Portugal, such as Lisbon and Porto, and explore Portugal from these two places. This concept allows reducing the costs with the displacement of our professionals out of their base.

- The trip between Lisbon and Porto will be made by train in first class, thus allowing a very comfortable trip with more controlled costs when compared to a private transfer and allowing enjoying as well a leisure afternoon in Porto. The transfers to/from the train station are optional, for those willing to add them or not to the final price.

- The private tours are escorted by an official guide most of the days and in other cases with a Tourism Driver (specified in the day by day program), for a better control of the costs. However, you’ll always have our highly qualified professionals at your disposal.

- We have included a free day in Lisbon, to give you the possibility to explore the city on your own.

With this program you will have the chance of knowing Portugal well; staying very comfortably and well accommodated in charming units and enjoying private services that provide an optimization of your time and information given by our professionals. And of course the comfort, exclusivity and class in performing a tour in private, at flexible and accessible prices in this case.

Tours for You did a wonderful job arranging our trip to Portugal. My friend and I are now trying to decide where we should travel to next but will only do it with Tours for You. Their attention to detail made our trip an outstanding adventure.

We took tours in both Lisbon and Funchal with this company. In both cases the tours were fabulous and informative. The pickups were timely and the guides well versed in their areas. We also used this company for transfers and found them prompt and reliable.

Quick response to unforseen issues!

The Tours for you team picked out beautiful hotels for our trip and arranged for private transfers, which was very comfortable and convenient. When an issue arose with a delayed flight they were quick to respond and offer a solution, which required a late night airport pick up and 2 hr. drive to our new hotel. Our experience with Tours for You couldn't have been better.

We had a great experience with Tours For You. Our guides in Lisbon were lovely--smart, nice, and fun too. We all really enjoyed our time with them and learned so much about Portugal! We really appreciated our guide in Porto emailing about the weather forecast for our Bike tour. We were able to reschedule and get the tour in before the rain started. I have already recommended Tours For You to two friends!

we used this outfit on separate occasions with different drivers , guides and vehicles. The drivers and guides were very professional with excellent english skills. the vehicles were comfortable, but the more comfortable one had air conditioning problems and made for an uncomfortable ride home. I highly recommend this tour operator.

Simply Excellent

My husband and I recently traveled to Portugal with two other couples, and thought that a professional guide would enhance our experience since none of us had previously traveled to Portugal. Each tour included a professional, English-speaking driver, comfortable Mercedes van, and English-speaking guide. The tours were comfortable informative, well-paced, and included adequate time for breaks or meals. I would recommend these folks without reservation to anyone wishing to see Portugal. We could not have been more pleased.

12 nights in Spain

We had great service in both drivers and tour guides. All were courteous and professional. The guides were well educated on the areas they were showing us. All our questions were answered and additional information provided that greatly enhanced the trip. Our tour of Ronda and Alhambra were extraordinary. We saw so much more through their presentations than we could get from any tour book or audio guide. Martin at the Alhambra should teach history at a University. His knowledge about Spanish history and the role of Alhambra added an immeasurable dimension to the tour. Our drivers , especially Francisco, were wonderful. This is where we got a glimpse into the lives of real people. Francisco was studying English and was really quite competent in communicating in English. We had a fun time as he tried to help us with some basic Spanish words. Spanish people are friendly, family focused, and refreshingly open. This impression was reaffirmed with all of our drivers and guides.
