Advertiser Info

Portugal A2Z (View My Profile)
Because we are a Portuguese company, we take great pleasure in showing our charming country and taking you to those unique places that only locals know about. We run bicycling and walking tours in Portugal since 2006.
But you can also join us for a hiking trip in the Alps, Patagonia or the Himalayas or for a grueling bicycle ride in the Pyrenees, Patagonia or Turkey. You choose!
At A2Z Adventures we love what we do and we only run trips that we love to do ourselves.
It´s that simple.

We are a small tour company. And we are proud of it. We try hard to, as often as possible, work with local people and organizations to help the local economy grow. One per cent of our revenues is donated to non-profit organizations that work towards the development of small communities.
Fun, knowledgeable and with at least five years of experience, our guides will make sure that you have a great time, in total safety. They come from very different backgrounds, have different personalities, but there is one thing they all share: their love for traveling and the desire to show you their favorite places in the world.
