“Everyone we interacted with — from the driver Paolo to the various guides who met us on our many stops — was intelligent, informed and pleasant.  We learned so much and enjoyed their company, too. We are so grateful for the time and attention you gave to us. “

“We have been back in New York for one full week, yet we are still smiling at the fond memories of our extraordinary 10-day visit in Portugal.”

“As experienced travellers we know that itineraries are necessary but it is the execution on-the-ground that makes for a successful tour. Here is where Raffaella excels.”

“Portugal is an interesting and extremely picturesque country to visit: the people are welcoming and friendly; the food is delicious, the wine flows; the towns and castles enchanting; and the countryside is just spectacular.

And if you decide to visit, make your plans with an outstanding travel consultant, Raffaella D’Intino. You will be so glad that you did!”

Beverly & Barry, New York

“I could go on listing the wonderful things, but it would be too long.(…) I am sure that all of us had our “special” moment during the trip and we will cherish the memories for a long time.”


“Over the past three years it has been a great pleasure to work with Raffaella Dintino of Episode Travel. She is very responsive, follows through, and is an excellent communicator. Her knowledge and support of the arts and Lisbon is fantastic, and she is willing to go the extra mile to make her clients happy. Raffaella provides excellence service, always with a smile, and we would not hesitate to recommend her services.”

Billy Munnelly & Kato Wake

“We had a wonderful time and felt that we got to enjoy Lisbon and the surroundings areas as locals do. Our group is very fortunate to travel each November and this is our 7th trip. I can honestly say that this was one of the best trips ever.”

“Profound appreciation for making our first Portugal trip so special. We want Episode in all of our travels!”


“Our trip was a major success!!! The itinerary you created gave us a great insight into the history of the Jewish in Portugal.”

Susan and Isaac

“Our trip was extraordinary, and all tour arrangements and itinerary goals met and even exceeded our highest expectations. Portugal is something completely different. You`ll only experience it if you are fortunate enough to have Episode Travel in Lisbon, Portugal, as your tour planner, leader and travel beacon.

Raffaella D’Intino, managing director of Episode Travel, is the perfect director, the perfect professional. And when you are led by Manuela C., the only thing you won’t experience is a dull day. They don’t allow dull days. Rafaella and Manuela are efficient, knowledgeable and superior. They are, without doubt, the best ambassadors the country could appoint as its tourist representatives.”

Bruce and Edith Weber

“It has been a pleasure and a privilege to work with you in organizing our recent KOSHER trip entitled” Portugal- in the footsteps of the Anusim”. All of the 25 members of our group had an enthralling and enjoyable tour and we thank you for your professionalism and attention to the small details, which has made this such a memorable trip.

The needs of the Kosher traveler are not always easy to meet, but nothing was a problem for you and the delightful hotel staff were always so helpful and accommodating.

What a wonderful trip we had and we are very very grateful for all the care and planning you put into this. The hotels were fantastic and the Pousada at Belmonte was just magical. We all appreciated the meals and the way you were able to help us with our strange diets! The lunches in the local restuarants were really excellent and full of atmosphere.

Thank you so much Raffaella, you are a real star!”

All good wishes

Alan Silman

The program was very interesting and our guide a masterpiece of knowledge, heart, soul and humor. We got a very good impression of your country and its culture. We specially liked when Sandra read poetry. Thank you very much.

“My wife and I were very much pleased from the tour. We found the combination of art, culture, museums, landscapes, history and modern parts of Lisbon perfect! Also the places for lunch and dinner impressed us. But the most part for the success belongs to the tour leader! She was in every section top: art, history, politics, poetry and the best: she was singing for us the folksongs of Portugal…just great!”

René and Eva Merstetter-Rufener
