Different Portugal is an Animation Tourism Company that organises sightseeing private tours in Portugal, including day tours, multiday tours and wine & food tours.


Isn't it amazing when we visit places where friends live and they show us around all the sites only locals know? The greatest memories we take back home are of moments lived in the authentic country, not only in the touristic sites.

That is the story behind Different Portugal. We want to share real places and experiences in Portugal in a unique, warm, friendly way.


At Different Portugal we provide both regular private tours and tailor-made private tours in Portugal allowing you to know the real Portugal in a customised and memorable way.


Our private tours include historical places throughout the country, from Sintra, Cascais and Lisbon to Porto, Guimaraes, Coimbra. We also organise private tours in Alentejo and Algarve regions showing you the best of our country in each place. The extensive knowledge of our local guides will also take you to several off the beaten path places in Portugal.

Our knowledge of the country is much wider as our local guides are foodies and wine lovers. We organise a wide range of wine and gastronomical private tours, from half-day tours to multiday tours.


The extensive knowledge of the country, love for gastronomy and wine of Different Portugal’s owner, Filipe, also a local guide, allow us to develop charming, tailor-made and creative tours, where all details are important.


Different Portugal started its business in 2011 and has received the Tripadvisor Certificate of Excellence since 2012.


Choose one of our day tours, multiday tours or wine & food tours and let us be your Portuguese pal!


Come with us and discover a Different Portugal!!

Our day trip to the cork factory and pottery studio was filled with historical facts and interesting anecdotal info ... Manny couldn't have been better. We visited Evora and the lovely little castle town of Monsaraz as well, stopping in at a great restaurant, local shops and breathtaking views. It was a personalized, private tour and well worth the price.... More

We had an amazing tour of Evora and the Alentejo region today with Filipe. The scenery and sights were beautiful but Filipe's insights, tips and special touches made it a most memorable day. The tour included a tasting at a local winery followed by a perfect picnic lunch with a view in the vineyards. The visit to Monsaraz was the... More

We booked two day trips with Different Portugal: Sintra on December 24 (with Manny) and Óbitos on December 26 (with Filipe) to show a bit of Portugal to our son and daughter in law. Both trips were remarkable. Both Filipe and Manny know and love Portugal. They transmit that love through stories, facts and insights. They are patient, flexible and... More

We were only in Lisbon for a few days with our college-aged daughter, but decided in advance that since we'd been touring around a few other cities, we'd like to plan something different. So glad we did! We had not done a private tour like this before but it was one of the highlights of our trip. Manny was fantastic!... More

We spent six days in Portugal, with Lisbon as our base. Since this was our first trip to Portugal, we took a friend's recommendation and had Different Portugal (Manny) guide us for four of those days. Manny, whose English is excellent, picked us up each day at our hotel and treated us to his extremely informative, in-depth historical, political and... More

We wanted a tour that would take us to the Sintra sights and outer Lisbon environs. I booked with Different Portugal on the basis of the itinerary, the excellent reviews the Sintra tour had received, and that it seemed such good value for an essentially private tour. Manny picked us up at our hotel as arranged and guided us through... More

We did the full day tour of Sintra. Our guide, Manny was very charming and knowledgeable and we enjoyed his company. We learned a lot about Portugal, its history and culture. Manny also gave us good advice about chocolate, ice cream and liqueurs. Do be aware, however, that, although he briefed us on each site, he did not actually take... More

We booked a private tour to Obidos and Mafra and it was a perfect day, with some special surprises. Filipe, the owner, was a delight. He picked us up early, was a safe and courteous driver, and he attended to every detail. He added a Buddha Garden experience, chose a perfect seaside spot for lunch, and gave us a delicious... More
