What to do and eat in Porto

What To Do and Eat in Porto

What to do and eat in Porto came about because Lonely Planet every year nominates 10 cities as the top 10 best value places to travel to. We heeded their advice and headed off to find out for ourselves why. In 2016 we took their advice and headed to Kotor and in 2017 we jetted out to Porto.  We were not disappointed by our decision.

A Madeira Island Tour

A Madeira Island Tour

There is a good reason why we chose to do a Madeira Island Tour with MJ Tours of Madeira. Have you seen the roads in Madeira?  They are not for the faint-hearted as you travel up into the mountains, they are windy, narrow and in some parts very steep and you do have to have your wits about you when driving. Madeira has now a new road system with tunnels that replaces...

Whilst in Portugal why not check out Yellow Bus Porto for...
