FAQs

We’ve answered the most commonly asked questions below. This way, you can understand more about Wine Tourism Portugal Trips, what we do and what we stand for.

Before traveling

- HOW DOES OUR WEBSITE WORK?

It’s very simple. You can use our Custom Tour Request Form to select our wine regions and experiences based on when and how you want to travel and feel. You have to select the wine region(s), date, number of people and budget per person.

You can also book one of our standard tours. You will find examples in each wine region.

You can always side-step our forms and example itineraries and get in contact with us by email, chat or phone.

After you’re happy with your final itinerary, we will check our availability and confirm your trip. At this time a deposit will be requested. As you get closer to the departure date and have made your final payment, we’ll give you access to a road book with all the information you will need. If desired we can setup a pre-departure call to answer any last-minute questions.

- HOW LONG DOES IT TAKE TO PLAN A TRIP?

You’ll have your initial itinerary within 24 hours.

First we’ll set up a call to get to know you more. We’ll ask about your interests and how you like to travel, as well as discussing ideas for your chosen destination.

From here we’ll curate a tailor-made itinerary and send it over. You can then fine-tune your trip before confirming.

- WILL I BE JOINING A GROUP?

All of our trips are private, so you won’t be joining a group. To ensure you have a personal experience, your group will consist of you and your family/friends/colleagues, only.

- CAN YOU PLAN SHORT BREAKS OR DO YOU ONLY SPECIALISE IN BIG TRIPS?

We are specialized in any length or intensity. So if you’re looking for a 1-Day Tour or a lightning-bolt 30-Day Tour to the most important wine regions in our country, we can plan and manage it all.

- CAN I BOOK EXTRA SERVICES ONCE I’VE BOOKED AND PAID?

Yes, absolutely. We’re flexible and understand that new ideas might come to mind as the weeks go on. We kindly ask you to book your extra service in advance in order to avoid this at the last minute.

Some special and hidden places may be suddenly unveiled and not just shown but also fully enjoyed by you: Have you ever imagined yourself dining privately in an XV century main room? It might be a possibility, to have this piece of history closed for your own delight. Have you ever wanted to stay still and unperturbed sipping the best vintage wine at a terrace gazing at a UNESCO protected landscape? It is also possible to plan it for you. Some of the experiences provided by our partners are exclusive with Wine Tourism in Portugal.

Our local Travel Experts know Portugal inside and out. All Portuguese, some of them have lived or were born in the most important wine regions in our country. We make sure all of our Travel Experts regularly conduct research trips to our wine regions, attend to the various services, speak with the locals, and always ask questions about new deals. If something’s hot they’ll be one of the first to find out. With years of experience, our knowledgeable local travel consultants will graciously design the finest customized itinerary taking care of every detail.

- I’VE ALREADY BOOKED SOME ELEMENTS OF MY TRIP. CAN YOU ORGANISE JUST SOME OF MY ACTIVITIES OR EXPERIENCES?

Sadly we cannot. We can only add certain experiences if we’re also booking the vast majority of your trip – as this is where we can add the most value.

- WHO LOOKS AFTER US WHEN WE'RE ON OUR TRIP?

Alongside our support line and your personal Travel Expert, we have your private driver, your certified private guide and partners who’ll run your holiday. We’ll make sure you’re introduced and that you have their contact details in your road book before you get there. We use Portuguese partners because they’re always best placed to respond immediately and speak the local language. They are extensions of the team in Porto and we’ve spent much time nurturing relationships with our partners to ensure you are really looked after and supported whilst travelling.

- I’M AN ECO-FRIENDLY TRAVELER. WHAT IS WINE TOURISM IN PORTUGAL DOING FOR RESPONSIBLE TRAVEL?

Most of our carefully selected partners also support sustainable travel and actively work to improve the communities in which they operate.

Our vehicles are recent and in excellent condition and fuel-efficient.

We support biological agriculture, so we include in our itineraries sustainable and locally grown food.

- I AM VEGETARIAN OR HAVE DIETARY RESTRICTIONS. CAN YOU HANDLE THIS?

Yes! Some of our guests are Vegetarians or Vegans. There are replacement options for food restrictions or vegetarians. You only have to advise us if you have any dietary restrictions, limitations or preferences. We’ll ask you to be as specific in that as possible. (For example, if you are vegetarian, let us know if that means you do not eat meat and poultry but you do eat fish, only legumes, etc.) We then pass that information along to our guides and restaurants so that you do not have to worry about it during the trip. We can accommodate most dietary requests, so please do not hesitate to let us know so that we can make your trip exceptional.

Payment

- HOW DO I PAY?

You can pay for your trip by credit card (Mastercard or VISA) or bank transfer.

- CAN YOU GIVE PRICE BREAKDOWNS SO I KNOW WHERE MY MONEY IS GOING?
