  • A perfect match! Cesar at Splendid Evasion arranged a two week vacation for us in Northern Portugal. We wanted a trip with an emphasis on local activities and he found so many fabulous things for us including goat cheese making and a filigree class. He listened well to our wants and needs and planned exactly what we wanted. I cannot recommend him highly enough!!

  • The perfect itinerary for families, our kids - 6, 10, 12, totally loved it and would go back in a heartbeat!! Nuno did a great job with a tight brief. It was a real eye-opener to see how much the local knowledge of this travel agent experts, based on the ground, made the difference between a good trip and a great trip. This was undoubtedly a great trip. We never felt rushed, the service we received was very attentive and personal, and also thoughtful (we forgot to ask about a child seat, but the reservations team had already sorted it out based on our passport details). Highlights were the street art in Lisbon, the wonderful welcome in the Alentejo (and the boat trip on Alqueva Lake with Francisco!) and in particular the recommendation of Nuno that we try, as a family, the Roman baths in Evora. Brilliant idea - everyone loved it. I crave pastel de nata and Super Bock, in full Alentejo sunshine...
