Whether booking a coveted reservation at the Michelin two-starred Belcanto or planning a 4 x 4 excursion to see prehistoric petroglyphs in the Foz Coa Valley, Correia provides clients a range of only-in-Portugal experiences.

One stand-out day trip he recommends is a journey aboard the country’s once presidential train. From the city of Porto, guests can board one of the trains formers used by the Portuguese Kings and Presidents of the Republic. “The ride takes you along the Douro River, the most stunning wine landscape in Portugal, and along the way you’ll enjoy a Michelin-starred meal,” says Correia. Upon arriving to the Douro Valley, the day ends at the Quinta do Vesúvio port winery for a tasting. 

Correia is also well versed in the Jewish heritage of Portugal and builds itineraries around that topic, as well as classic Iberian experiences like after-hours access to colorful Pena Palace in Sintra, a sailing trip to the Piedade Caves, or a surfing lesson at Santa Cruz beach, in Ericeira.

"In 2018, my wife and I decided at the last moment to travel to Portugal on vacation. We contacted Goncalo Correia in late August for a trip we hoped to make in September. As one would expect, our planning timeframe was not optimal and reservations for certain activities were limited or not available. Goncalo exceeded our expectations with an excellent 10-day itinerary for which he arranged our lodgings in Lisbon and Porto in addition to tours, guides, drivers and a boat skipper. Goncalo and his team also assisted us with dinner reservations. We had a fantastic time exploring Lisbon, Sintra and the Estoril Coast, Porto, Duoro Valley, Nazare and Obidos. We enjoyed a nice balance between formal tour and personal time. Our guides were very personable, professional and knowledgeable." - Robert B.
