Portugal

Lisbon + The Algarve

About Portugal

The secret is out and Portugal has moved up the ranks to becoming one of the most visited destinations in Europe in the last two years. With over 12.7 million travellers going through the beautiful country, Portugal is taking over the spotlight and rightfully so. Portugal is the latest addition to our destinations in 2021 and we are so excited to be travelling through both the city and the coastline.

Join us as we explore the sun kissed city of Lisbon and the natural beauty of The Algarve. Expect to soak in the old century charm and beautiful cafes while strolling through famous landmarks and the most breathtaking sights.

Portugal has taken over as the most visited European destination in the last two years and we are taking you straight there! Famous for its beaches, food, and Cristiano Ronaldo….but that’s just the tip of the iceberg. Boasting a rich, centuries-long history, extraordinary hospitality, exquisite restaurants and shops, Portugal—whose name seems to be on the tip of everyone’s tongue—is just hitting its stride.

We’ve designed this trip to give you the perfect balance of the city and the ocean. Our first four days will be spent in Lisbon, the heart of Portugal. This dainty sun-kissed city will charm you away. Lisbon is a foodie’s paradise and we are filling all your cravings for the week. We will take you to see some of the most beautiful viewpoints of the city and stroll through cobble stone streets filled with music and culture.

The next four days and three nights of the trip is where you’ll pull out your cutest bikini and get ready for that tan, girl! The Algarve has an amazing coast and beaches nestled in on the Atlantic Ocean. We’re sure you’ve seen the stunning pictures of the Benagil Sea Cave pop up on your social media more than once, and we are heading straight there.

Accommodations

All of our accommodations are shared based on double occupancy. The TGT vision is built on ensuring that women from all walks of life are able to experience travel with other women, hence why we keep all of our accommodations shared with other girls on the trip. This allows you to get out of your comfort zones and build relationships with other female travellers.

We do our best to enhance our experiences in the best way possible, which is why we spend months building our itineraries. Our team travels to each destination prior to departure to ensure our partners and accommodations are up to par. We take pride in being a tour operator that falls in between affordable and luxury, where some experiences can be luxe while others will be authentic and local.

Check out our cute accommodations!

Dining Experience

All of our dining options are balanced between luxe, casual, and local. Daily breakfast will be served at the hotel for your convenience. Lunches and dinners will be a variety of options between on the go, casual, and curated meals. We always host a special welcome dinner on all of our trips. This one is always a surprise and specially curated by our TGT team.

Each meal covers a main plate and a non-alcoholic beverage. Some meals have shared appetizers and starters provided by us. If you wish to order an alcoholic beverage or extra food, you will have to pay for that separately.

We also always take into consideration your dietary restrictions. A few months prior to departure, you will receive your Welcome Package where you will fill out your dietary needs. All of our dining options will have vegetarian and vegan options. You may also request for additional dietary needs.

Excursions & Tours

All of our tours and partners are carefully selected beforehand. All of our tour operators are local and licensed tour companies. We only work with the best!

All excursions and tours are optional on the trip. You are more than welcome to skip out on on any tour if need be, however, we do encourage you to take full advantage of the itinerary that is provided.

In terms of free time, you will have some time to yourself. Most girls take this time to go shopping and spend the day discovering everything Portugal has to offer on their own. We offer add-on packages which you can take full advantage of. These options will be provided to you prior to departure.

This company takes great pride in all the details, which really makes the trip a special time away. After completing my first trip with them, I can definitely say that they made every effort in creating an organized, safe, adventurous, well-captured, bucket list experience! Weather you are going solo or with a friend, I highly recommend TGT tours.

Sample Itinerary

On this trip we want to show you all of the beauty Portugal has to offer. We have multiple excursions and experiences planned, all carefully curated just for our tribe. Please note the below itinerary is a sample and subject to change.

Day 1 – Arrivals! Welcome to Portugal! Today we are expecting our tribe to arrive in Lisbon where you will take the day to settle in. Lunch and dinner will be served along with a full orientation of what you can expect with The Girls Trip Tours. When the evening comes, it’s time to get your beauty sleep because the next 7 days will be an adventure-packed week!

Day 2 – Exploring The Highlights of Lisbon. Today is the day where we explore all of what Lisbon has to offer. It will be a full 8-hour day packed with adventure and site-seeing. Following breakfast, we begin with a walking tour of Lisbon. The tour will set a great foundation of some of the most epic viewpoints, beautiful and charming neighborhoods such as Alfama, Baxia, Chiado and Bairro Alto, cool street art, cafes and the famous Rossio Square, with a stop over at the LX Factory for a delicious lunch. Get ready to experience the famous yellow tram as we take a ride to soak up the Portuguese culture. We will then hop on our tour bus to take in some of the main sights such as the Belem Tower, a stop to try delicious Portuguese tarts and enjoy the beautiful sunset by the river. Dinner will be curated at a beautiful restaurant chosen by the TGT Team.

Day 3 – Day Trippin’ To Sintra! Today is the day we head to Sintra to see the beautiful Pena Palace and enjoy the beauty of one of the most iconic structures in Portugal. After a beautiful morning, we will head to eat a delicious authentic Portuguese lunch by the seaside and take in the views. After lunch, we will head to Cabo Do Roca to enjoy breathtaking views of the Atlantic Ocean and landscape and make our way to Praia do Guincho, a popular Atlantic beach located on Portugal’s Estoril coast. Our last stop will be in a beautiful coastal resort town called Cascais where you can enjoy some time to head to the beach, put on your bikinis and get your tan on or walk around the strip and grab some gelato, the choice is yours. We will end the evening with one of the most beautiful sunsets and dinners in town.

Day 4 – Do Lisbon, Your Way. The morning and afternoon is yours to explore Lisbon. We will meet in the evening to get ready for a beautiful night out in town starting with a Fado Show filled with music and wonderful performances while you enjoy your dinner. 

After the show, we will take an evening walking tour starting off with the famous Pink Street that comes alive at night. We will walk though some of the most famous bars, grab a drink, and make our way to the steep cobbled stone streets of Bohemian Bairro Alto that is filled with a diverse crowd and hip, quirky bars. Get ready to dance the night away!

Day 5 – Hello, Algarve! Today we head to the Algarve Coast! Get ready for some sunshine, ladies. We will be taking a short 3-hour train ride to get us into the beautiful town of Albufeira, where we will spend the next 4 days. Albufeira is a coastal city in the southern Algarve region of Portugal. It’s a former fishing village that has become a major holiday destination, with sandy beaches and a busy nightlife strip. You will spend the day getting settled in after checking into our hotel and enjoying your time however you please. In the evening, we will meet for a special dinner by the ocean.

Day 6 – The Benagil Cave Excursion. Today is a full day trip to see some of the main sights in the Algarve, the Benagil Caves. Get ready to see the most beautiful caves you have ever seen! You will have the opportunity to swim in the crystal clear waters and a possibility to see dolphins (Please note: Seeing dolphins is not a guarantee). We will spend the afternoon relaxing and exploring the Benagil Caves by boat and then make our way to lunch. For the rest of the day, we will be exploring the Algarve and its region. We will end the evening with a special goodbye dinner celebrated in TGT style, which is always a surprise!

Day 7 – You Pick, Girl! After breakfast, you are free to explore how you please. Take in the sun, enjoy the beach, explore the town, or you can opt in for an add-on option which will be provided to you after your booking. We will meet in the evening for dinner to say our final goodbyes and take in all the beautiful moments we’ve shared together.

    The trip to Morocco was next level amazing. I had always wanted to visit Morocco but planning that trip seemed... overwhelming. I didn’t even know where to start. This allowed me to be able to just sign up & go. The ease and simplicity was very refreshing. What I didn’t expect was to meet so many amazing new friends through the process. I could go on and on but wouldn’t be able to do it justice. It’s just something that needs to be experienced.read more

    I participated in the first Morocco trip and it was such an amazing experience! From everyone in the group connecting... really well, to the food, accommodations and experiences choices, everything was well thought out to give a wonderful mix of cultural and luxury travel. What I especially love is the managers' dedication to each member's independence: there was always a choice to opt in and out of activities and make it your own trip. Oh, and it was the perfect Pinterest holiday!read more

    These women are absolutely amazing! Signing up is simple, communication is prompt, and they organize everything! Bali... has been on my bucket list for years, but I wasn’t completely comfortable traveling to Indonesia alone so I decided to give TGT a try. I’m so happy I did! I spent a week getting to know all of the girls and exploring the island. We truly bonded and created a lifetime of memories. Love y’all ♥️ Thank you!read more
