A Portugal Honeymoon To Remember

My wife and I decided to go to Portugal for our honeymoon, and with only 3 weeks before our wedding to plan, we didn’t have any reservations or accommodations booked. We knew we wanted to surf and as we were putting together an itinerary we found António with ride351 and opted to call him for his local opinion before booking anything. We are so glad we did because his knowledge and expertise were just what we needed to help us put together our dream itinerary.

He recommended places to stay, and things to not miss - including spending some time in the Duoro Valley, which was not something we had initially planned on and ended up being one of our favorite parts of the trip! Not only did he help us modify our trip for the better but he offered to book all accommodations, dinner reservations and set up surf lessons with Vitor (who was great!).

When we arrived to the Lisbon airport, Antonio was there waiting for us to help make our way through the car rental process without issue and told us how best to get up to Porto since that was our first night’s stay. He even brought us a package of pasteis de natas and waters for the 2-3 hour car ride!

Every place we stayed had a bottle of champagne or wine waiting for us along with a special welcome or “congratulations” note from the hotel that Antonio had arranged all on his own. Each day he would send a text making sure things were going smoothly. He struck the perfect balance between too little and too much communication, wanting to give us our privacy but still ensuring we weren’t experiencing any problems.

My wife and I now can’t wait to get back to Portugal to see more of the beautiful country, do more surfing, and also spend more time with Antonio and Vitor. We simply can’t say enough good things about our experience with ride351 and how they helped turn our honeymoon into an experience we will never forget!
