Trip Notes

Portugal Visa
Starting in 2025, most visitors will require an EU Travel Information & Authorisation System (ETIAS) which will be obtained online. There may be some exceptions and it is the responsibility of all travellers to ensure they meet all entry requirements. Click here for more info.

Culture Shock
Portugal is a highly developed Western nation. Crime rates are low and the nation is generally safe, but beware of pickpockets and petty theft anywhere that’s popular with tourists.

Local LGBT Scene
Porto and Lisbon both have amazing gay scenes. Overall, the whole country is gay-friendly!

In late spring, the climate is typically mild and ranges from 13C (55F) to 22C (72F) so it’s a good idea to bring a sweater or light jacket for the evenings. The weather is generally pleasant with clear skies, making it suitable for outdoor exploration and visiting cultural sites.

Required Vaccinations
Based on the entry requirements for Portugal, there are no mandatory vaccinations. To determine if you should take preventative measures to reduce the risk of illness, consult with your doctor or a travel medical clinic. We cannot provide vaccination recommendations.

You will need an international travel plug/adapter for Type F sockets.

All of our hotels will have Wi-Fi access. If you require connectivity, we recommend purchasing an international data plan or local SIM card (with an unlocked device).

Travel Insurance
For everybody’s peace of mind, medical travel insurance is required on this tour. At a minimum, your travel insurance must provide cover against personal accident, death, medical expenses, emergency repatriation and personal liability, with a minimum medical coverage of US $200,000.


Portugal food tour


Breakfast daily, 5 lunches, 5 dinners

Portugal’s local currency is the Euro (EUR). Credit cards are widely accepted.
NOTE: We recommend carrying approximately $400 USD to be used in case of an emergency, or if your credit/ATM cards are placed on hold. This should be in addition to any spending money.

Gratuities are included for hotel porters, drivers, and day guides, but not for optional meals, activities, or for your host and local group leader. More details will be provided with your final trip documents.

What to bring
Our adventures entail carrying your own luggage on occasion. And while you’ll never schlep far, things can quickly get costlier than a celebrity breakup if you don’t keep your baggage under 20kg/44lb thanks to costly surcharges on domestic flights. You should also bring something smaller for day trips to carry water, your camera, and any souvenirs you find along the way.

Optional Activities
Our tours offers optional excursions that are not included in price of this trip. Please see the daily itinerary in your final pre-trip packet to learn what’s available.

Physical Preparedness
This tour is rated 2-2.5/5. All guests must have a good level of health, and all tours involve uneven steps or stairs, and you will be required to carry your own luggage from time to time. Unfortunately, we are not able to accommodate individuals with limited mobility unless they are willing to absorb the cost of a private guide/assistant which varies by country and is only possible on a case-by-case basis. It is also your responsibility to advise Out Adventures of any pre-existing medical conditions that may increase the risk of you requiring medical attention, or that may affect the normal conduct of the tour and the enjoyment of the tour by other participants.

Your Guide
Tour is led by a gay (or gay-welcoming) guide. Whenever possible, we hire destination locals. And we can also connect you with the right people if you’d like to delve deeper into the local culture. If you’re pleased with your guide, we recommend a tip of US $5-10 per person, per day…they’ll certainly appreciate it!

Flying Solo
If you’ve never travelled on your own, it’s an amazing way to get to know yourself while making new friends along the way. We can arrange for you to share a room with people in your age range at no charge, or you can pay a supplement for your own room. If there’s an odd number of solos, we’ll rotate a single room on a random basis.
