Deciding to visit Portugal is the easy part of trip planning
Working out which destinations and activities you can realistically fit into the time you have is more of a challenge, not to mention time-consuming.
Creating your ideal Portugal itinerary doesn’t have to be stressful
There’s an easy way to avoid feeling overwhelmed with options, uncertain about your choices or frustrated at not being able to find the information you need.
Let me help you plan a trip that you will look forward to and treasure
As someone with in depth knowledge of and love for Portugal, plus over 20 years of trip planning experience, I can relieve the stress and burden of working on your ideal Portugal itinerary in many ways.
“We had an organized trip planned to Portugal but we were arriving 5 days early and did not know how to plan/organize those first 5 days. We contacted Julie, filled out her questionnaire asking about how we like to travel (activity level, food likes, accommodation preferences etc). With this information Julie recommended and planned our 5 days. Thanks to her planning, we thoroughly enjoyed our travels and had a wonderful time in Portugal. We are 100% happy with what she did to make our vacation enjoyable, interesting and memorable.” – Evabeth Rocke
