Incomparable Experience

Everything about the trip was wonderful. If you want an experience of the parts of Portugal the locals love, book anything with Eco Trilha. We went to the best restaurants and tastings. Our experience with chef Vasco in Arcos de Valdevez was incredible. He opened his doors and treated us like family. This is not a bus tour with a group listening on a headset. Cristiane is professional in every way and provided an incomparable experience.

"A most enjoyable holiday in Portugal with Eco Trilha"

Cris our guide was excellent, gave personalized and friendly service. We were given ample time to discover the places we visited and Cris was there with us all the way. Highly recommended for tourists who wish to discover Portugal off the beaten tracks. The visit to the hotel owned by the 1st Masterchef of Portugal was memorable, especially the cooking workshops. Thumbs up!!

"FABULOUS holiday with Eco Trilha"

We enjoyed all of the locations we visited, the great food and wine, the rich culture & interesting history of Portugal... Have I mentioned that it was a FABULOUS holiday?! Thanks for coordinating, booking, confirming and generally taking care of our requests in planning our adventure. Highly recommended and I would definitely book Eco Trilha again.

"Perfect Portugal Adventure"

My 24-year-old daughter and I spent a wonderful week in Portugal in January on the Culture and Cooking Tour and are so grateful to Cristiane for putting together the perfect adventure. We had so many experiences that we otherwise wouldn't have had on our own a walk through the UNESCO neighborhood of Porto, olive oil and wine tastings, discovering some of her favorite historical and culinary places. Because she hired drivers during some days, we could relax and cover a lot more territory than you would expect and got to see Lisbon, Porto, Sintra, some small villages, the coast, and the mountains. We'd love to take our family back for one of her Douro Valley tours as well. Highly recommended!

Flexible with tour arrangements

Christiane is very professional, always on time, flexible with tour arrangements, and knowledgeable about different ways to experience Portuguese culture. I was impressed by the amount of personal assistance she offered us. She went the extra mile to make sure we were taken care of; for example, finding a place to get Covid tests. We would happily take another tour with her.
