About Classic Portugal

Hi, I´m Hayley 

I created Classic Portugal Tours in 2019 to share my passion of experiencing Portugal as a tourist – because I was one! Back in 2016 I moved from London to Lisbon to follow my love of surfing. Since then I have spent much time travelling around Portugal, experiencing the country in many different ways, from visiting the grand monuments of Lisbon to hiking in the mountains with a traditional Portuguese shepherd. These days I am constantly searching for new places and new experiences in this beautiful country. I love to share what I discover with our international visitors and strive to craft tours with social impact in mind. Let me know how I am doing!
