Unique Tours Factory, live a truly unique experience

With Portugal as our destination, Lisbon to be exact, I needed a good plan. What should we do? Where should we go? Above all, I wanted to avoid all activities aimed at tourists. I wanted to discover the culture with a local, because in my view, it’s the best way to really submerge oneself in a country and discover its true treasures.

By sending out a message to my contacts on social networks, one of my friends advised me to consult the website Unique Tours Factory, where you can reserve an experience with a professional guide, local to the region.


On their website, I chose my destination of “Portugal”, and I clicked on “Lisbon”. Then, I just had to put in the desired date of my trip and the number of people. Unique Tours Factory then introduced my guide for modern times, Joao. The program would take a day, setting off from Lisbon.

So, our guide had planned to take us on a gastronomical experience while at the same time discovering the beautiful landscapes of the wine-growing region of Setúbal.

As part of the tour, we would be visiting the best wine cellars in the region, as well as meeting the owners. And, seeing as a visit to a wine cellar would not be complete without wine-tasting, our experience would include a lot of tasting of local liqueur and wine, and also a selection of local specialties including the well-known cheese Alentejo and famous Portuguese desserts.

We also checked out some of the other Unique Factory Tours on their website. Sarah got a bit carried away when she spotted an exciting and surprising cruise. This cruise, with the same guide, would take us the length of the river Sado to look for dolphins for a day. We therefore chose this option in order to see animals in the wild and also to have a typical Portuguese dining experience, on one of the most beautiful beaches of the region of Setúbal. The guide informed us that this excursion would also allow us to discover, at the end of the day, the national mountain of Arrábida and its nature reserve.

That same evening after booking our tour, Sarah packed the cases. I reminded her we were not leaving for another month! She said to me, “you know darling, they are going to branch out all over the entire planet very quickly. Can we test the 15 European towns already listed?”

I gave her a smile. She understood by my look that she had a carte blanche for our next weekend away.
