Portugal Travel Team
Your Local DMC in Portugal
Welcome to Portugal.
FOR YOUR MEETINGS, INCENTIVES, CONFERENCES AND EVENTS
Charming castles, pristine beaches, and cosmopolitan cities where the old meets the new are only a few wonders that can be found in Portugal. Its location at the tip of western Europe allows for great accessibility, another ingredient for its success in creating unforgettable and unique endeavours. With pleasing temperatures all year round and delicious gastronomy, Portugal boasts sophisticated hotels, innovative meeting facilities and unmatched hospitality, being the perfect location to hold any event.
Dining in Style.
Looking for something your guests cannot do if travelling on their own? Try a dinner at a Royal Palace, where they can travel back in time and get a glimpse of how the royal court would welcome and entertain their visitors.
Romantic palaces, mystic forests and impressive landscapes are what make this village a must-see when visiting Portugal. Teeming with summer royal palaces and exotic estates, with fairy-tale architecture and unique designs, Sintra will amaze at every corner.
Iconic Tram Ride
A ride one cannot miss while in Lisbon is by the well-known yellow trams, in use as public transportation since 1901. Journey through the oldest neighbourhoods, enjoying a glass of Port wine and Pasteis de Nata – this private tour will be unforgettable!
Portugal Travel Team (PTT).
PTT was founded in 1996 by Eduarda Neves who believes that a focused and enthusiastic team makes a difference in our industry. Many years later this is still true.
Specialisms: Incentives – Team Building – Events – Meetings – Product Launches – Cruise Handling – Conferences – Conventions – FIT – Corporate Travel – Group Travel – Special Interests – Luxury/VIP Travel
I started working in the industry as a trained and official Tour Guide in Portugal, followed by taking responsibility for new programmes for groups and high-end individual clients from Europe and North America. Then I started Portugal Travel Team in 1996 – nowadays a renowned DMC in this great destination, and a member of Euromic, of which I am Vice-President of the board.
We required many services and much time from your staff, and they did their job with pride, enthusiasm, and professionalism. Plus, they always had a smile on their face. My colleague is not easy to impress, and yet I can’t remember her ever being as complimentary as she is about your service and team.

Why choose Portugal – Why choose PTT?
THE POWER OF OUR LOCAL KNOWLEDGE
Diversity. From seaside to countryside, sophisticated cities to secluded villages, lush forests to unspoiled beaches, it is no wonder that Portugal is being awarded as one of the best destinations for any type of travel. With so many activities to choose from and traditions to uncover, creating unforgettable events is what we do best.
Here, you can host a meeting aboard a catamaran while enjoying the calm waters of the Tagus river or at a centennial Port wine cellar. Organize your international conference at a state-of-the-art convention centre or at an historical Convent. Wrap up your incentive program with a Gala Dinner at one of our Royal Palaces and be certain your guests will never forget this incredible adventure!
