We are delighted to organize a seamless luxury Private Northern Spain & Portugal Trip. Here are a few trip planning ideas for northern Spain and Portugal and considerations that we deal with daily, to save time and sanity.
With Magical Spain Luxury Travel you´d be comfortable in nice 5 star hotels often located near historic areas. You´d enjoy insider insight of top local guides, artisans, artist, chefs and others for memorable EXCLUSIVE experiences. Your transfers would be stress-free & private in nice luxury cars with pro drivers. This can focus on a Portugal private luxury tour, Spain private tours or both.
With our Private Northern Spain & Portugal Trip….
You´d have our daily support and we´d consult with about the many options for this rather complex trip project:
We would like to start in Lisbon, see the sights there including Sintra, maybe Cascais?, Fatima, Coimbra and Porto, a river cruise?, Guimares, Amarente, Lamego, Pinhao. These are places I have seen mentioned on different websites. I don’t really know if they represent the best of Portugal or not.
If we are near the north of Spain , would it be worthwhile to see Santiago de Compostela, Salamanca, Bilbao, San Sebastian, Segovia, Barcelona, Madrid?
Examples of Northern Spain & Portugal Trip Ideas from Emails
Here is my quick free consult about el Camino de Santiago 🙂
The Camino de Santiago is amazing if you enjoy walking, history, nature and some spirituality. The downside if you went to Leon Spain or thereabouts for walking would mean a major zig zag from west to east then west to Santiago then east back across northern Spain toward Bilbao /San Sebastian Barcelona ect… So not impossible but lots more time in transit so is not common. Also you´d likely need to leave out some of the places you mentioned earlier unless we contract a private jet and or helicopters. Perhaps have a look at Google maps and distances.
Anne, you will understand I could add more ideas on Fatima ect… but to be fair to those that are paying, we must reserve our time for customers who have retained our services.
Honestly, your Portugal and Spain luxury private tour will require a lot of complex logistics, planning and decisions, so whomever you choose, be sure they are an experienced agency and have a demonstrated track record. The alternative is to join a group which is great for some.
I have been spending a few days looking at all of the options available on a Private Northern Spain & Portugal Trip…. and must admit to being a bit overwhelmed by the choices.
Was the average price per person or per couple? We have 20 nights and 21 days to see as much as we can but would not be able to fund a 3000 Euro per day trip. What level of comfort might we expect for the 1000 Euro per day option?
We were also thinking of a couple of days on the Camino finishing in Santiago de Compostela. Would that be possible or is it not really done? It seems a long way though to other places of interest.
Is the 12/13th October an extra special day to visit Fatima? Are there any festivals/ special events that would be good to see in October that we could plan our trip around.
We live in the Sunshine State so don’t need to see beaches. We were thinking of a Douro River cruise but wonder if there is enough to see in the area to warrant the time it would take.
I look forward to your kind advice on how practical al of this sounds.
Just a short follow up on our long email yesterday…
Please see, as per your request, attached copy of our Spain Insider Experience Report.
– Could you also explain how stress free deluxe travel works?
Note we can do this because we limit it to just 5 trips week on a “first reserve, first serve basis”
It also means we use our time and expertise to plan, tailor and coordinate a tailor-made adventure, so our guest just arrive and enjoy each day, your way.
Also you´d get 24 / 7 support in English + daily concierge service.
The driver service has 2 versions:
transfers and excursion when he is with you much of the day unless you are in pedestrian areas where you will be walking with the guide normally.
Is travel between cities by car or train? – both, depends on what is most optimal for comfort and time
Can you give us an idea of the average cost per day.
With just 2 people from 1500 – 3000+ euro / day + tax. Note this varies with the extravagance of lodging, access, experiences, transport, events and complexity one seeks.
In any case, with 2 people and private luxury travel there are many fixed cost divided among a small group.
Look forward to your news on our Private Northern Spain & Portugal Trip.
