Planning memorable trips in Spain and Portugal since 1999

Portugal Trip Planner

Tour Description

Planning a trip but not sure where to go in Portugal nor the logistics?  Consider using our service of Portugal Trip Planner. Maybe you know the cities you want to visit, but aren´t sure about the number of days or what to do in each city.  What is the best transportation to get around or ideal neighbourhoods for your accommodation?   Let local experts who have been planning trips in Spain and Portugal since 1999 help you design your trip.  

Try our Portugal trip planner service, created to give you a professionally designed plan that will save you time, help you work through the details and guide you in making the right choices. We will start with a questionnaire to help us better understand your travel preferences, destination desires and needs.  This will be followed by a scheduled phone conversation for 30 minutes.  We will then submit a proposed plan including the price that we would charge if we were to organize the trip.   

Here is how our Portugal Trip Planner works. We will lay out a day to day agenda covering your sightseeing priorities. Our plan will include recommended areas for your hotel as well as means of transportation between cities.  This will save you hours of research. If you like our proposal and decide to use our services to plan your trip, we will discount the cost of our Portugal Trip planner service from the price of your package. Either way, you win as you walk away with a great plan.  Of course, there are more benefits if you buy from us, but if you decide to plan it yourself, that is ok too!

Let experts plan your trip

Designed for the more discerning traveller, our travel planning services and private tours, throughout Spain and Portugal, are ideal for those who don´t have time to invest in a lot of research but want the best experience none-the-less. Our services alleviate the stresses of travel and provide immeasurable possibilities for learning about the culture through fun and unique activities as a couple, families or small groups.

Continuous Research

We are in a constant state of research to find interesting and inspiring activities that are ideal for our clients. Typically, we will try something out ourselves first, so we can both describe it to you and know if it will be a great match. If the activity is appropriate, we like to bring our children, 9 and 12, along to see if they will like it as well. This allows us to update our materials all the time on new great venues or restaurants, hotels, must sees and must do experiences. We live it and pass the valuable info on to you, our customer. When we can, we will let you know of interesting exhibitions going on, temporary artisanal markets, free concerts and cultural events that give you an insider´s look at the culture.

Teaching you our travel tricks

At Letango, we believe in approaching tourism in Spain and Portugal with the right balance. Visiting our beautiful country is not just about seeing historic cities and monuments, it is also about immersing into the culture, getting close to the locals, celebrating with them in fiestas and sampling some of the wonderful cuisine. Our days are planned around this. We want to teach you how to, essentially, do like the spaniards do while you are here. We will show you tricks on how to stave your hunger despite the late lunches, when to rest a siesta so you are ready for the energetic night, go at the best times to visit sites with less crowds, etc.

Love for detail

We go to extremes to take care of our clients, both in the planning phase and once they have arrived. If it requires a phone call or several emails back and forth, communication is vital to get the service just right. We will take the worry out of your travel by calling ahead, checking on reservations, re-confirming with guides days before the service and even following up to make sure everyone was happy with the service.
