From the start to the finish, this was an amazing trip and it is all due to wonderful interaction and planning by our agent at this Portugal travel company. We went on a road trip from the north to the south of Portugal in 10 days with 3 kids. My agent called me to understand what kind of travel we like (independent, off the beaten track) and then after a few iterations we came to the final itinerary. She met us at the airport as we arrived and gave us an extensive travel itinerary with all the details that we could possibly want, a local mobile phone for easy interaction with her while we were on the road should we need her, and a preprogrammed satnav for every leg of the trip, so we could easily navigate our way around some very remote parts of Portugal. Despite a few days of rainy weather, we loved our trip (our agent rearranged a few things to work around the weather forecasts). We experienced and saw some wonderful parts of Portugal and really got a feel for the country. This agent was amazing and I can't recommend her highly enough - for me, the most impressive thing is that she truly understood what kind of trip we like and she had all the local knowledge and contacts to be able to give us an authentic experience of her country. She was simply wonderful, and so was our trip.
All of it, but here are some of our highlights: Portuguese cooking lessons, Porto, Sintra, dolphins, wild horses, nature reserve in the Algarve.
Nothing, we were not so lucky with the weather (so a couple of experiences would have been better with good weather), and also it was too cold to swim with sea horses in early April. But this is no fault of the planning, just nature.
