We booked a city tour with Paulo in Lisbon, since we knew we had some time after flying in before we could check into our apartment. An overview tour of the city seemed like a good way to spend those hours, and I’m really glad we booked with Paulo. He was great! He picked us up at the airport (even helped sort out a local SIM card for my phone), and despite the rainy weather, did everything possible to leave a positive first impression of the city – and the country – with us. Thanks to him, we saw some of the more modern developments in the city, which we wouldn’t likely have seen otherwise, had our first taste of pasteis de nata (in Belem, naturally!), and sampled some charcuterie at the Casa do Alentejo.
Paulo understands that the best way to visit a country is through unforgettable experiences and I’m only sorry I didn’t find him sooner, to help plan more of our trip. Keep him in mind, if you are planning yours and you’ll be sure to get more than a ‘cookie-cutter’ tour.
“Truly a dream come true!”
by Indylisa, Indianapolis, Indiana, United States, May 2016
I cannot imagine a better way to see the beautiful country of Portugal than with Paulo Baptista and PORTAexpresso. I chose the beach horseback ride, and it far exceeded my expectations, and was truly a dream come true—golden sand, crystal clear water, and a beautiful and responsive horse. Before the ride, the visit to Alcacer Archaeological Museum was a unique and fascinating look into Portugal’s past, and worth a visit on its own. Paulo is an enthusiastic, friendly and knowledgeable guide whose love of his country is evident. He patiently answered all of my questions, and stopped several times so that I could capture the breathtaking beauty and local sights with my camera. Any tour you choose with PORTAexpresso will offer an experience you will never forget and leave you planning your next trip to Portugal. Thank you, Paulo—it was truly magical, and an experience I will always remember!

“Best way to see Portugal”

Paulo was amazing. We overslept and he waited 30 minutes for us past the pick up time. The horse back riding trip was amazing, break taking views and afterwards we stopped for a fresh seafood lunch right on the beach. So nice and an irreplaceable experience.
