Wow! What a great service. We started the Rota Vicentina with too much in our rucksacks. After 3 days we signed up with Vicentina Transfers and it made a the trek soooo much better. Every day the bag got picked up from out hotel and was waiting for us when we got to the next hotel. Everything went perfectly. Highly recommend!!!

The transfer service was perfect - reliable and with no fuss - for all of out two week trek. Very good value. It allowed us to extend our lifetime hobby of walking long distance trails into our older age. Thank you!



Grande professionalità e un servizio impeccabile! Ogni giorno abbiamo lasciato lo zaino dove indicato e l'abbiamo regolarmente trovato il pomeriggio nelle abitazioni che avevamo scelto. Non c'è stato il minimo problema, tutto veramente perfetto. Grazie per aver contribuito a rendere unico il nostro Cammino!



Such an excellent, reliable service. We hiked 12 days Porto Covo to Lagos…our bags were at our destination before we were ☺️ We generally booked our accommodation a day or two ahead. It was easy to let Vicentina know our accommodation plans as we made them and they took it from there. Highly recommend.



I can highly recommend Vicentina Transfers. They transferred our luggage on the Rota Vicentina each day for 5 days. Our bags were collected every morning and delivered to our next destination/accomodation as arranged. All we needed to provide was the name of the accommodation, leave the bag out each morning snd it was awaiting our arrival each day. All correspondence with this company was prompt and informative. The staff we met were friendly, helpful and courteous. The price we paid was excellent considering the logistics involved. The whole process made our trip hassle free and enabled us to travel light during the day on the trail.

Oktober 2022: 15 Transfers/ 2 Gepäckstücke (von Lagos via Sagres, Porto Covo bis nach Santigao do Cacem). Der Gepäcktransport von José hat super geklappt, obwohl wir zwischendurch auch Ruhetage eingeplant hatten. Wir können Vicentina Transfers ohne Vorbehalt empfehlen. Obwohl wir von Süden nach Norden gewandert sind, waren die Koffer bei unserer Ankunft meistens schon im Hotel.



Those guys are offering a fantastic super reliable service. Had twice a situation in which they performed outstanding service to bring my luggage to a remote place and in the other situation they called me as I forgot to book a single transfer after a break. Absolutely recommended. Great help to make the fisherman trail an awesome and fantastic experience.



Efficient service and very user friendly website to set up the transfers



Thank you for making the experience of transporting our bags so easy! Super responsive, adapting to changes that hotel operators threw in along the way, bags were always there at the end of the day!



Ganz lieben Dank 😊 es hat alles wunderbar geklappt. Mein Gepäck hat in jeder Unterkunft schon auf mich gewartet. Ich kann diesen Service von José uneingeschränkt weiterempfehlen!

I just wanted to say thanks for the fantastic service on our recent hike along the Rota Vicentina. It truly made a huge difference to loving the hiking each day whilst our bags so reliably turned up at our place to stay - not a single problem! I'm actually a travel blogger so I thought you might enjoy seeing my write up of the trip - including a glowing review of your service!

Grazie per l'ottimo servizio. Puntualmente abbiamo trovato gli zaini all'arrivo quasi ai piedi del letto. Le nostre spalle alleggerite dal peso degli zaini ci han fato godere appieno della bellezza del cammino. Si tratta del nostro dodicesimo cammino e passati da diversi anni i settanta, con questo ottimo servizio, si è rinvigorita la voglia di continuare "a camminare". Un piccolo disguido risolto con competenza e professionalità anteponendo a tutto l'interesse del camminatore/pellegrino. Bravi!!!

I wanted to thank you and the staff from the transfers for being so flexible and customer friendly. I don't have a credit card so i could pay with cash and give the information with the app. That was really super and such a big plus for my hiking trip. I was not always in time with the info, so i wanted to say sorry for that. Being so late was because i decided when i arrived what to do the next day. I had a small injury, and this service made this possible for me. So thanks again and keep up the good service. 
Kind regards



I just wanted to send a message to truly thank you for this wonderful service you offer. I came to Portugal to hike the Fisherman’s trail (Porto Covo —> Sagres). I had all intentions of carrying my pack on my back, but after three days I had terrible blisters and my back was hurting so much. If it weren’t for you guys there is no way I could have finished the hike. Muito obrigada pela tua ajuda, do fundo do coração.

We have just finished walking part of the Rota Vicentina and used your service to transfer our luggage . You have been fantastic and to see our luggage at the end of each days walk brought a smile to our faces! Even when our last accommodation was at a private address and I was worried you might not find it - you were one step ahead of us and knew exactly where we would be. Many, many thanks for making our walk so enjoyable. We will be using you again for the next stage.

I'm not sure how I missed your service but this is awesome! Thanks so much for the email, really appreciate it and I love what you are doing with your easy online booking, I'm a big fan of stripe too.  I've booked our transfers and everything went smoothly.  Obrigado!

Thank you very much for your excellent transfers! You were our 'Luggage ghost' in the background for the last 13 days. It was a great pleasure and a great coincidence to meet you in Vila do Bispo - the ghost become a nice guy.

Having Vicentina Transfers transport our luggage from hostel to hostel really made hiking the Rota Vicentina so easy and fun. My husband and I just carried light day packs. It was wonderful and inexpensive. Jose was very reliable. My husband Don and I highly recommend Vicentina Transfers. Easy and affordable.

Coleen and Sean
