We made a last minute decision to visit Portugal, and contacted this company based on the recommendation of friends who had just returned from Portugal. Best decision ever – Hugo could not have been more responsive to our interests and questions. The guide Rodrigo, knowledgeable and flexible…always offering other ideas, and patiently putting up with ours.

We made a last second decision to change our vacation plans and had one week to plan an entire vacation. Thankfully, we found Walkborder and they did virtually all of the work! They planned an excellent itinerary through beautiful and historic parts of Portugal and provided us with fantastic guides the whole way. The guides were all knowledgeable and friendly, without being overbearing.
