Discovery tour to Portugal and south of Spain
DISCOVERY TOUR TO PORTUGAL AND SOUTH OF SPAIN
MAY 1 - 16 TH, 2020
OBJECTIVES OF THE TRIP:
These tours are designed to give participants a detailed understanding of different areas in two neighbouring countries in a very short time. Portugal has been at or near the top of the wish list of many wishing to retire or invest abroad, in recent years. Spain, as a varied and comparable market, is also starting to elicit interest from North Americans. We think that to be able to view options in both markets is an excellent way of seeing how the two countries compare. The Iberian tours are based on the individual regional and city tours which already run, in both Portugal and Spain.
Feedback on this personalised manner of introducing the country and its regions to potential retirees, winter residents or investors has been exceptionally positive, and without exception our visitors consider this the most cost-effective way of quickly getting an understanding of the areas and what each offers. As we always say, it also helps to eliminate those options which are not a match, or not to customers’ liking.
