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.

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

By: Tom T

Reviewed on: 28 Oct 2017

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.
