The Douro Valley has one of the most breathtaking landscapes in the world, rich in winding terraces, a place where man has overcome hostile sloping terrain to plant vineyards. This region is listed as a World Heritage Site.

Our partner’s tour introduces you to the Douro Valley through some of its most beautiful landscapes. You will have the opportunity to taste some of its products such as olive oil, honey and wine, in properties selected especially to make you discover the best of this region in terms of tradition, originality and quality.

In the village of Pinhão (the heart of the Douro Valley) you are invited to discover the magnificent surrounding landscapes during a one-hour boat trip on the river, then to visit the historic train station, known for its 24 signs of tiles representing the city, the landscapes of the Douro and aspects of the traditional grape harvest.

On the one or two hour upstream routes, audio information about the tour is provided free of charge for you to listen to comfortably and safely on your own mobile phone.

Braga et Guimarães

This tour will take you to two of the most important cities in northern Portugal: Braga and Guimarães.

Braga is the oldest city (more than 2000 years old) and the religious capital of Portugal. For centuries, the city has been an archbishop’s seat and a place of pilgrimage. You will visit the 11th century Cathedral (Sé), the oldest of its type in Portugal and one of the oldest in the Iberian Peninsula. Then you will visit the sanctuary of Bom Jesus, the city’s emblematic monument located on a hill and whose baroque staircase climbs a drop of 116 meters.

Guimarães is the birthplace of Portugal, a kind of historical and symbolic cradle of the Nation. The city has retained its medieval atmosphere and is now a UNESCO World Heritage Site. We will then visit its imposing 10th century castle, an old military fortification, the majestic Palace of the Dukes of Bragança, known for its 39 cylindrical brick chimneys, as well as the historic center. In Guimarães or Braga, you can relax and enjoy a traditional Portuguese lunch with dessert included.

Gastronomy | Eat like a local

Eating well and in generous portions is a kind of national pastime, especially when you are in the city of Porto. But with so many restaurants to choose from, it’s best to enlist the help of a local expert so you don’t waste time searching and then regretting your choice. This is exactly where our partner comes into play!
On this tour there will be no tourist menu of Portuguese food for foreigners. The route will take you to where the inhabitants of the city are used to eating and will allow you to truly experience the city of Porto. You will know exactly what you are eating and all the dishes will be of unquestionable quality. We say “quality” not in a pretentious “gourmet” style, but for those flavors that remind us of the dishes prepared by our grandmothers.

This gastronomic excursion has been meticulously designed to showcase three things: good food, the rich history of Portuguese gastronomy, and the culture and friendliness of the local people. You will discover all the social and cultural context of the city and the region, as well as the history and origin of the dishes you will taste. Also explore downtown Porto to fully enjoy this experience.

Bring comfortable shoes and an appetite. This is an unforgettable tour that will make you discover the city of Porto in a unique way.


  1. Francesinha (typical Porto hot sandwich) with a craft beer.
  2. Regional specialties.
  3. Pastry shop.
  4. Wine and cheese tasting Ne Guide/driver
  5. Please note: the meeting point is on the steps of Santo Ildefonso Church (Batalha) and the ending point is Praça da Ribeira.

Fado – Alma Lusitana

During this tour, you will discover the city of Porto from a very different perspective, while learning more about the cultural and social context that Fado represents.

Embark on this journey in the late afternoon and discover some of the city’s most iconic viewpoints and sights at dusk on a breathtaking panoramic journey!

Passing through Boavista, you can see the Casa da Música, whose minimalist yet sophisticated architecture attracts visitors from all over the world. The trip continues in Foz (only in summer) where you can appreciate the close connection with the Atlantic Ocean, a theme very present in fado songs. Before arriving at the restaurant, we make a stop at one of the best places to discover the city of Porto, the viewpoint of the Serra do Pilar Monastery. Feel magical vibrations and discover how the lights, the Douro River and the bridges create an unforgettable setting.

At the fado house, you will be served a traditional dinner and you will have the opportunity to attend a performance of this nostalgic music. Better than explaining what fado is, you have to listen to it and witness the sung expression of this melody whose themes touch on everyday subjects, such as love or the city, the “saudade” ( kind of nostalgia) being one of the most frequent themes.

Before dropping you off at your hotel, we will cross the city center to discover its main arteries by night.


  1. Hotel pick-up and drop-off (downtown Porto).
  2. Dinner.
  3. Show during dinner.

Paddle on the Ria – Union with nature

This Stand Up Paddle ride is an experience of contemplation and serenity surrounded by nature. It is a way to connect with the landscape and nature of the Aveiro estuary, quietly observing the birds and the local flora. Combine the movement of the body and the balance of the mind, rowing in peace through the channels of the ria.

The boards are built in wood by our partner, taking advantage of the great cultural influence of shipbuilding, to reduce as much as possible the ecological footprint of their manufacture.


  • 60 €/person

Minimum age: 8 years old. Children 8-12 years old are free when sharing the board with a responsible adult. Adult and child together must not weigh more than 105 kg.

Ria by boat – Bird watching

For nature lovers, this is a fantastic walk. You can enjoy the beauty of the ria and the peace that reigns there, while observing the varied birdlife of the region.

The wooden boat was built in Portugal and has the perfect dimensions and characteristics to guarantee a smooth ride. It is very comfortable and has a central table that can be used for snacks.

Embarkation is usually done at the Nautical Association of Torreira, but there is some flexibility and other docks in the ria de Aveiro can be chosen for embarkation and disembarkation (eg Bestida, Bico da Murtosa, Ovar…). There may be restrictions, in particular imposed by the tides, for the use of certain embarkation quays, at certain times.

We answer your questions | FAQs

Dental treatment in Portugal is cheaper because general operating costs, which include materials, laboratory costs and dentist fees, are lower in Portugal than in the UK. The same materials are sold by the brands themselves at lower prices in Portugal. Dentists do not charge as high fees as in other countries, so even our best dentists have a lower cost than dentists in other countries. We pay our dentists’ fees based on local prices (and based on their experience and quality), resulting in significant savings for our patients. Patients also often have to deal with very high laboratory costs. With Thecaretrip, a large part of the laboratory procedures are carried out in the dental clinic itself, which translates into lower prices for the patient, but with high quality, since the management of the process is carried out in-house, according to our high quality standards and by professionals we have selected. Some procedures must be carried out in rigorously selected external laboratories. Lower cost is often associated with lower quality. Wrongly. The dentists who work with us have been selected for their high level of specialization, the rigor and perfectionism with which they carry out their work and the attention paid to the patient. All the materials we use are certified and we only work with the best brands on the market.

Our implants are made by Straumann, one of the most prestigious implant brands in the world. Our implants come with a lifetime guarantee that can be used in all the clinics around the world working with this brand.

The first thing to do is speak to the Thecaretrip team and explain your emergency so that we can guide you. Most emergencies can be solved in your country by consulting a specialist in the field of implantology. You can also plan a visit to Portugal to solve the problem.

Dental implants are placed under local anesthesia, which minimizes the risks associated with a surgical procedure which is in itself painless. After surgery, there may be some swelling and discomfort, which will be resolved with prescribed medication. Ideally, after the procedure, the patient should rest for at least a day. This delay is important because rest slows circulation, which reduces the risk of pain. The next day, the patient can resume his professional activities in moderation. Compliance with post-operative care is essential for a good recovery, among which we highlight the following points:

  • Cold and soft foods: yoghurt, ice cream, gelatin, cold soups, pureed vegetables, meat and fish, fruit smoothies;
  • No physical exercise;
  • Avoid exposure to the sun;
  • Sleep with the head slightly elevated;
  • Regular cleaning of the operated area;
  • Take prescribed medications as directed.

You have to come to Porto between 2 and 4 times:

1st – Consultation for the preparation of examinations and surgery. You can perform the examinations in your country (we send you the prescription) and the consultation can be done online.

2nd – Performing the surgery – Depending on the complexity of the treatment to be performed, it will be necessary to stay in Portugal for at least 1-2 nights. In complex cases requiring significant bone regeneration, it may be necessary to perform the operation in two phases, which increases the number of consultations during this phase.

3rd – Preparation of molds for permanent crowns/prostheses. Consultation carried out 4-6 months after surgery, after bone healing. Depending on the number of treatments performed, it may be necessary to stay at the clinic between 1 hour and 1 full day. The fabrication of permanent crowns/prostheses takes a minimum of one week. You can choose to stay in Portugal and visit the country while waiting for the fabrication of the definitive crowns/prostheses or, depending on your case, come and leave the same day or spend only one night in our country.

4th – Placement of crowns/definitive prostheses. The installation is faster, it only takes a few hours. If you have chosen to return home during the molding phase, you can come and leave the same day.

We always pick you up at the airport and take you to the clinic for your treatment and accommodation in Porto.
