Best Horseback and Overall Tour no question
I have done horseback riding in several countries and this was the best for several reasons, and I will just say a few. Equally important is the Guide Paulo & the Health of these horses. Before I get to Paulo, I will just say that these horses were the healthiest dang horses from a visual and performance standpoint. This meant a lot to us because we are animal lovers. Now Paulo! This man is genuine and caring. He looks after you all day and makes sure you have a super fulfilling experience. The guy just knows how to take care of people. He has a vast knowledge of history, and he takes the time to swing you through a local market or two for some off the beaten path secrets. We both picked up a pair of hand made shoes. Paulo even pulled some strings and got us into a local food spot after the ride for some amazing fresh homestyle seafood. This was the best tour I have ever been on anywhere, and Paulo is the reason for it. Your crazy if you book with anyone else! P.S. The beach you go to is like a private paradise. No joke.

Paulo is Portugal's best!
We had 6 days in Portugal and wanted to see as much as we could in that time. Friends suggested we contact Paulo as he could arrange an itinerary based on our requests. Paulo Baptista was beyond fantastic! He was early each day, attentive to our comfort, funny, spoke excellent English, had an immaculate van to take the 3 of us around, bottled water (essential in the heat) and added many wonderful activities to our list of must sees. He took time to point out many facts about Lisbon and explain its history. He stopped to have us taste the local drink, gingha, and eat the local pastries in Lisbon and Obidos. We had time for shopping, eating lunch at places he recommended, and general site seeing. My only regret is we did not have more time! Next trip we will plan a cooking class with Paulo - one of his many talents. Booking a tour with Paulo was the best thing we did in Portugal!!

Absolutely wonderful week !
This was a special vacation for my sister and I as we took our 84 year old mother to Lisbon and Fatima. A dream trip for her. After finding PortaExpresso, Paulo Baptista, the rest was easy. He made a perfect schedule for us touring Lisbon and all the "must see" spots to absorb the culture of this beautiful land. He is extremely professional, polite and was aware of my mothers needs and capability. Important to note, Paulo was on time, early, for every scheduled appointment we had. Paulo suggested things we never thought of, and was ahead of our every need. Portugal and her beauty are not always visible, and it takes a well educated tour guide to know the facts and secrets of Portugal. Of course there are many tour guides, i suggest to research well your choice and to get a qualified, licensed tour guide. We can not thank PortaExpresso for making us part of his family and embracing our desires and needs. My mother was ready to adopt Paulo at the end of our week tour. Not an easy win over. To list just a few of the places Paulo showed and educated us ; the city tour of Lisbon, Fatima, Cascais, and coastal areas, Santarem, and markets, and so much more. We fell in love with Portugal, people, culture, food and wines. Thank you so much Paulo for your attention to detail and making this vacation so wonderful. We hope to return with other members of our family for the wine tour next time!!! Warmest wishes.

Excellent experience!
We had a 10 day trip to Portugal and it was truly amazing! We've seen so many things: castles, churches, monastery, winery and much more. Paulo is a great guide, he told us many interesting facts about the places we visited, moreover he was very amusing and friendly. I can honestly recommend Portaexpresso to everyone! Very nice, very nice, very nice!

Professional, well organized, friendly & nice!
We had an amazing heli ride with 3 helicopters up in the air simultaneously! It was all very well organized and you feel you are in the hands of professionals. There is nothing to complain about. All the people involved were nice and gave us some good laughs! Again, the ride was fantastic and I could highly recommend Portaexpresso.

Coincidence or serendipity? Wine tasting tour Setubal area with Paolo Baptista
Our original day tour with another operator was overbooked and so we met Paolo. It was the best personal wine tour afternoon we could ever have. His quality to sense, listen and at the same time customize the tour is beyond. He took us to Sesimbra to reminisce our first visit to Portugal in 1992, followed by the wine tasting at Fonseca winery. A visit to an authentic manufacturer for handmade tiles underlined the historical value and our appreciation for this craft. The trip was completed with a beautiful view at Pamela castle and church and an excellent wine and cheese tasting at Casa Mae dos Vinhos. Thank you Paolo, with your company we made a memorable wedding anniversary! Hope to see you soon, warm regards, Henk & Hanna

Even in the rain, Paulo shone!
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!
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.
