We had an amazing trip to Portugal - everything about it was just perfect. The accomodations, people, food, wine were all amazing - we couldn't ask for more. We had the perfect mix of planned tours and downtime - we were very happy with the attention to detail of our trip - there was absolutely nothing that we would have changed about it! Highly recommend!
Fantastic trip to the Azores! A wonderful hotel, great food, and each excursion was different and fun. Doreen and Leah made it a truly memorable trip and I look forward to traveling with them again!
Amazing trip! So much to do and see. It was wonderful to have excursions planned and not have to worry about details. Can’t wait to travel with Leah and Doreen again!
We had such a wonderful time. We loved how it was all planned out and yet also flexible. The hotel was great. Everything was thought of to make our trip easy and enjoyable!
From start to finish the trip Quest put together was seamless. All our drivers turned up on time, whether for airport connections or tours. The hotels were all excellent. All the small group excursions booked for us had wonderful guides - they spoke great English and were very knowledgeable. The restaurant recommendations we received from Quest for both Lisbon and the Azores were definitely worth having. We tried several of them and had some wonderful meals. All in all a fantastic stress-free vacation. Ryan at Quest was responsive to all our questions in a timely manner. Thank you!
The Azores are beautiful and Porto is a very interesting city but be prepared for walking on hilly cobblestone streets. We enjoyed the guided tours arranged for us. The guides were both personable and knowledgeable. From flights to airport pickup to tours all followed the itinerary Erika had prepared. Of note our guide for the Douro valley wine/port tasting tour did an amazing job in less than ideal weather conditions. Thank you Erika for taking our preferences and crafting this wonderful tour.
The Azores and Madeira trip did not disappoint. Both destinations are quite diverse in a variety of ways, yet I appreciate their common cultural thread. It was beneficial to get a taste of both, and to soak in the beauty and pulse of these very special islands! There were jaw dropping moments and also peaceful pauses. I now have a greater understanding of these places and what I would like to see and do for a future return trip. Overall, I loved seeing all of the plant life! Unreal! My excursions were truly fun, informative and exciting, but I also really enjoyed my down time, along with the stays at the chosen hotels. The locations of the hotels were ideal. It was so easy to take off on foot. There was so very much to do in the historic districts right at your fingertips. I appreciated the easy access to the waterfronts, museums, restaurants, botanical gardens and of course, the great people watching in both Ponta Delgada and Funchal. I also felt very safe in these destinations as a female solo traveller. Additionally, the planned airport transfers were an added bonus. Having a lot of these details taken care of for me alleviated a lot of stress. Overall, I definitely recommend this trip to anyone who is at all curious about these islands. Also, I thoroughly enjoyed the overall order and organization of working with Quest Travel. Lorri Hill was above and beyond helpful, and answered all of my questions with efficiency. Many thanks!
The trip was fantastic! Everything went very smoothly along the way. The rental car went off without a hitch during pickup and the car was very nice. We had great experiences at both hotels with the staff and the locations. (Hotel Verde Mar and Santa Barbara Eco Resort). The whale watching went super well, it was a gorgeous day we saw some amazing animals with a great team on the boat. The list of ideas in each area was also very helpful to plan on things to do as we went along. Leslie and the team helped immensely on the planning and execution, it went very well, we are super pleased with the trip and would highly recommend!!
The trip was amazing. Our excursions were well organized, interesting and fun. Thank you Doreen for your selection of our tours - very well thought out and so entertaining. I highly recommend traveling with Doreen!!!

Portugal is now one of our favorite countries we've ever traveled to. We loved the country, the food and the people. the Herdade you booked us into in Alentejo was a highlight for sure. Joao and Pedro in Porto and Douro were phenomenal tour guides. We can't wait to go back and see more.
