Once solely focused on Portugal's Algarve region, Vigor has expanded his purview to the entire Iberian Peninsula. Vigor is expert at personalizing vacations and scoring upgrades: he's planned a private wine tour of the Douro Valley, a New Year's fireworks extravaganza in Madeira, and swimming with dolphins in the Azores.

He and his team have visited every single town in Portugal, giving them encyclopedic knowledge on what's worth seeing and what's not. "Our preference is always to use high-end boutique hotels when available, but we always offer an affordable but very nice guest house depending on budget," Vigor says. In fact, that level of customization follows with all the activities he recommends. "We don't use any large suppliers — and most are very niche in what they offer," he says. "A lot of them don't even have a website!"
