Travel is the best way to experience any story. While we worked on this book we explored far and wide, often spending time far off the beaten track in an effort to uncover the real Portugal. We were able to mine Ryan’s encyclopaedic knowledge of the country, gleaned from his experience of putting together bespoke tours over the last 15 years. Knowing where to go to find the hidden gems helped us enormously, and we feel it made Foot Trodden a better book.

If you want to visit Portugal to discover its wines, foods, and landscapes you can definitely do it on your own with the information we’ve provided on this site. We built it exactly for that reason. But if you want to delve a little deeper, and “pull back the curtain” as one of our clients describes it, we can help build and manage a more personal and exclusive experience via Ryan’s company Catavino Tours. Ryan and his team can handcraft anything from a day trip to the Douro, to a multi-day itinerary for you or your group of friends.

The sky’s the limit. Just let Ryan know your wishes below, and he’ll get in touch right away to help create your dream itinerary in Portugal.
