Gregory Edward; CEO & Founder

Arriving  in Portugal late 1996, at the start special Worlds Fair "Expo 1998" was an especially exciting time to be introduced to Portugal. That year opened my eyes to Portuguese  culture which was so different from what I had know in the USA.  Falling in love, literally and figuratively, my dream to live in Portugal and Spain began a journey for more than 20 years that left me with an incomparable knowledge of why Portugal and Spain are unique destinations for sophisticated  travelers.

My first travel concept was Discover Portugal Travel that worked with travelers who wanted to experience much more than the typical public tour group.  These  personalized and incomparable journeys of discovery with all logistics handled to the smallest details are the difference between a trip and experience of a lifetime.

In 2016 I've relocated back to the USA and currently live in Colorado and maintain my apartment in Portugal. 

Upon my return began my newest venture, VIP Private Travel which maintains the same high standards of remains committed to planning exceptional experiences to Portugal and Spain.

"How fortunate to have found an American in Portugal"


Dear Greg, You brought history to life with your encyclopaedic knowledge a fascinating country with all the added stories that make the ‘learning’ so interesting. I have been going  through your trip notes and realising that we could easily have spent twice the time and still not seen it all.

I marvel at how you came up with such interesting people for us to meet and commend you for having developed and delivering this very personal approach to your travel business in Portugal and Spain.
