Come to a country with the oldest borders in Europe, where charming, winding Cobblestone Streets lead to imposing Medieval castles snatched right out of a fairytale. Where you can indulge in 3000 hours of sunlight a year on 850 kms of uninterrupted golden sandy beaches. Where the distinctive notes of Vino Porto enhance the gastronomic elegance of Portuguese cuisine. Where a solitary lighthouse dramatically sits perched on a cliff at the westernmost tip of Europe, whose edges suddenly give way to the unending blue of the Atlantic.

Everything was very well organized. There were people waiting at the airport for us when we landed. They gave us a sim card which was reasonable for calling India and very helpful. There was someone to assist us whenever required. The villa was very comfortable with neat and spacious rooms. We had no issues at all on the whole trip. The visa was easy to get. It was a very nice place to visit and great experience. Thanks a lot for everything."

I travelled recently with my family to Singapore through Hansa Holidays. It was amazing working with Shubra who customized a package for us based on our requirements. She was very prompt in her communication and follow up and was always reachable even when we needed guidance in Singapore. Every detail of the trip was executed without fail .Interacting with her was an absolsute pleasure and would highly recommend Hansa Holidays . I cannot express my satisfaction with the travel agency with anything less than a perfect rating!! I will absolutely utilize their services again.
