About us

We are members of ASTA (American Society of Travel Agents) and APAVT (Associacao Portuguesa de Agencias de Viagens e Turismo) and, unlike many of our competitors, are based in Portugal. We offer our clients the security of booking through an internationally recognised company coupled with the benefit of local knowledge and advice from our experienced, multilingual Portuguese team from our base in the north of Portugal.

Our internet service has been operational since 1993 and we believe it to be second to none.

As well as an online booking system, our multi-lingual staff provide a free and fast personal service. We always offer clients the best price currently available either online, off line or, through Travel Agencies.

Our country is one of great contrasts from the magnificent beaches of the Algarve to the beautiful north where time has stood still. There are many fascinating, historic cities to visit such as Porto, Braga, Guimaraes and Coimbra. Not forgetting the wild beauty of the National and Natural Parks and of course the UNESCO, World Heritage Sites.

Lisbon, Portugalís vibrant capital city provides a wealth of history and excitement. There are many beautiful monuments, museums, castles, palaces and of course restaurants and bars where Fado, the famous and unique form of song can be heard most evenings.

For golfers the whole country is a haven with many world class golf courses.

There are currently 34 hotels in the world famous Pousada Group and they can be found throughout mainland Portugal. They are also located in The Azores Islands where little has changed for generations, this is a paradise of dramatic landscapes, extinct volcanoes and beautiful flora and fauna.

Since the first Pousada was inaugurated in 1942 the Pousadas have become the epitomy of all that is the best in Portugal. The architecture, location, decor, furnishings, facilities and service are of the very highest standard.

Other features of the Pousadas are the warm hospitality you will receive and the wonderful regional cuisine which is beautifully complimented by world famous wines.

Last but not least, is the superb climate, making Portugal a year round destination.
