Lisbon: The happening capital city and the perfect intro to Portugal. You’ll soak up the charming tiled houses by day, eat endless amounts of Pastel de Nata (custard tarts) and experience the vibrant nightlife.

Porto: A traditional, picturesque city and the home to Port wine. We'll go wine tasting in the beautiful Douro Valley, and end the day with a beautiful sunset (and a glass of wine of course).

Lagos: Admire the breathtaking cliffs as you hike to hidden beaches and explore the incredible landscapes. Swim or kayak in turquoise waters, soak up the sunshine and wander along the stunning coastline.

You’ve made it to Portugal, now it’s time to meet the rest of the squad! We’ll give you the low-down on your trip over a meet and greet dinner. Relax, grab a drink and start soaking up wonderful Lisbon.

Arrival: Fly into Lisbon Portela Airport (LIS).

You’ll start the day with an insightful workshop from Leesh on all things Instagram. Learn about perfecting the basics, growth hacks, what makes “good content” and how to boost your engagement. You'll also have the chance to take over the @girlsthatwander Instagram story with your Portugal highlights from the trip! We'll also hold a competition for the best trip picture, which will be featured on the @girlsthatwander Instagram page at the end of the trip.

Now you’re clued up, time to get some of that cool content we were talking about. We’ll spend the afternoon taking a Tuk Tuk tour of Lisbon (is there any other way??). You’ll explore the beautiful sights while getting plenty of photo ops!

Want to unwind? Let’s head to a rooftop bar to chill out and get to know each other a little better.

Workshop - How to grow your personal Instagram brand: This lesson will help you focus on how to capture/edit beautiful images, increase your engagement and not waste time when creating an engaging Instagram post.

All of our trips include accommodations, transportation between cities, some meals and a number of activities relevant to the theme of your trip! Most of our hotels also include breakfast, but that varies by destination. A local guide who speaks the language will also be assigned to your trip and ready to provide recommendations every step of the way. Welcome to a better way to follow your passion while seeing the world!
International flights to and from the tripp destination are not included. Looking for cheap flights? Check out kiwi.com!
Excursions and tours vary trip to trip and are based on the theme of the trip. Refer to the trip itinerary to see which activities are included in your trip!
Typically, at least 2 dinners and breakfast every day is included, but it varies trip to trip. You can ask your local guide for tips on where to eat cheap if you’re on a budget! Dietary & allergy information will also be collected leading up to the trip to ensure you’re taken care of.
TrovaPass is a subscription service where you can earn credits on a monthly basis that can be applied towards trips. It is not currently available to new subscribers.
A 25% down payment is due at the time of booking. The down payment is refundable until your spot is confirmed at which time it becomes non-refundable. You will receive an email when your spot is confirmed. The remaining balance will be charged 60 days prior to the trip departure. If you book within 60 days from trip start, the full amount will be due at booking, but still refundable until your spot is confirmed. See all of our Terms & Conditions.
When you book your trip, your spot will enter a pending status. In most cases, your spot will be confirmed about 48 hours after booking. In cases where the trip has not yet achieved the minimum number of bookings required for confirmation, your pending status may last longer. While we typically notify much sooner, you’ll be notified at least 60 days prior to trip start whether or not your spot is confirmed. Your down payment is refundable until your spot is confirmed. We recommend not booking a flight until your spot is confirmed.
We cater to adults past the stage of roughing it - that means no hostels and no hotels below 3 stars. We strive to create an experience that’s not only authentic, but also easily accessible and comfortable. All hotel locations are conveniently located near the heart of each major destination, so you can live like a local. Less time in transit means more time doing; save the commute for back home.
No more than 20 travelers on each trip. In order to create a personalized experience, we feel it is important to keep group sizes smaller. Sometimes, less is more!
We try to start and end all trips in a major city with an international airport for your convenience. It’s up to you whether or not you want to continue your adventure after the trip ends!
We will send a detailed itinerary with everything you need to know at least 2 weeks prior to your trip start date including hotel information and airport transfer information (if included). Before your trip, you’ll be invited to both a Facebook and WhatsApp group to meet the other travelers and start exchanging information. You can expect each trip to kick off with a welcome dinner for you to meet everyone after settling into your room. Bon Appétit!
Unless listed otherwise, you’ll sleep in twin or double shared accommodations with private bathrooms. Traveling with a friend? Just plug in their name while booking under "Special Requests" or shoot us an email at hi@trovatrip.com and we’ll ensure you’re roomed together. Uncomfortable with sharing a room? No problem! Most of our trips offer a single supplement option that you can choose when booking.
Excellent question! We’ll provide a full itinerary including hotel and transportation details at least 2 weeks prior to your trip including all necessary travel information. Accommodations often change depending on the group size, so we like to get the exact itinerary out to you when finalized to avoid confusion.
If you’re leaving the country, you’ll need a valid passport that doesn't expire for at least 6 months from your return date. You may also need a Visa. Unfortunately, we cannot provide Visas or guidance on Visas, so please check with your local consulate. We'll send you a packing list leading up to your trip to help you prep what's needed! If you have specific questions about what to pack, email us at hi@trovatrip.com.
Trips are hosted by topic experts and led by local guides. Most trips also include a Trip Manager to help coordinate. You’ll be introduced to all staff prior to your trip. Feel free to reach out with any questions regarding your upcoming trip or link up on social media!
YES! Don’t feel pressured to find someone to join you on a trip. Part of the TrovaTrip experience is meeting and traveling with new and exciting people from around the world.
Downtime will vary trip to trip according to the itinerary. We do our best not to jam-pack itineraries so that you have some time to explore or relax on your own!
Have a love for all things travel and want to show others the world? We’re always looking for people who love travel as much as we do. Apply here if you’re interested in leading trips as an Trip Manager!
Don’t be a stranger! Send us your questions at hi@trovatrip.com. We love hearing from you whether it’s a question, suggestion, request or anything else you might think of.
