It's good to see LuxuryLink featuring more selections in Portugal....for a while, the auction packages being offered were 'slim' to 'none' for one of the most enjoyable and affordable destinations in Western Europe.
We were looking to explore some lesser known vineyards in the Douro Valley. We found several offering generous and detailed tours and tastings for wines we had never tried before the visit. Also, we had the opportunity to roll up our pants and jump into the process!
We had pleasant experiences during our last visit to Madeira, northern Portugal and a couple of days in Lisbon, so much so, we decided to alter our return travel itinerary from Turkey planned for later this year and take a short stop-over in Lisbon. We added two back-to-back 2 night auction package at http://www.luxurylink.com/5star/hote...tel-lisbon?v=S
We are also in contact with the private guide, Miguel, we employed for our extended time in the Douro Valley http://www.luxurylinklounge.com/blog...portugal-1521/ and have started discussing a possible reunion with him and his lovely wife, Jennifer, down in Lisbon and the surrounding for a few days of explorations. Miguel and Jennifer own and operate a very successful tour company based in Porto, Portugal but servicing the entire country http://www.oportoshoretours.com/#!
We haven't finalized what we will be doing or where we might be going outside of Lisbon, but with such a wide variety of day trip options, we are looking forward to the time there.
We're happy Luxury Link has gotten back to offering destinations in Portugal and all the interesting places it has to offer.
