Everything went smoothly, and even dropped off our bag at a hotel that was not listed. I will use this service again in May :)



Perfect service, very reliable! Keep up the good work



Perfect service! Thank you very much! Our specific group-settings were very well managed and now everyone from Porto Covo to Odeciexe knows Linda with 9/11 luggage items 😄 Can't wait to go next part of Fisherman's!



You made a great job for us. Problems were solved easily. Everything perfect in time. Reliable! Thanks so much



Excellent service - everything worked perfectly. We provided our luggage in the morning and it was ready for us when we arrived at our new accommodation. I can definitely recommend it.



Thank you so much for all the transfers from our luggage. We appreciate the uncomplicatet and truthfull process and we were astonisted to meet again our rucksack 🎒 at each place we stade over night. Now we arrived to our aim. Sincerely Cristina and Marc

This is a great company and service. Their communication was always very polite and timely and most importantly, when we arrived at the destination after hiking for 5 or 6 hours, our luggage was waiting for us, in perfect condition, every single day. Brilliant. Can't thank them enough, as without them, it would have been so much more of a challenge.



We walked the Fishermans Trail and used Vicentina Transfers to deliver our luggage from hotel to hotel. Everything was delivered every day on time and in perfect condition. They even-carried sunglasses from one destination to another that my wife had left behind. Great service!

Wir sind von Porto Covo bis Sagres auf der Rota Vicentina gewandert ohne Gepäck. Die Beste Entscheidung. Eine unserer Unterkünfte hatte ich nach einer Adresse gefragt und diese haben mir den Dienst von Vicentina Transfer empfohlen. Sie hätten nur Gutes gehört. Ich hatte einen ähnlichen Service schon auf dem Jakobsweg und war so dankbar dass es ihn auch auf diesem Fernwanderweg auch gibt. Unsere Erwartungen wurden nicht enttäuscht. Unser Gepäck wartete immer in den gewählten Unterkünfte auf uns. Auch längere Stops sind kein Problem. Die Buchung erfolgt sehr einfach und schnell. Danach eine Bestätigungs-Email und schon kann man unbeschwert losgehen ohne den eigenen Rücken unnötig zu belasten. Vielen Dank dafür. Ein wirklich genialer Dienst und durchwegs positve Erfahrung.



This was a godsend!!! Hiking this majestic incredible trail without luggage was freedom!! I was able to enjoy myself much more through the sand and sun without the burden of a backpack. The service was perfect and getting to our new destination with our bags waiting was magic! I cannot say enough about doing this hike this way! Be free!!



Thank you so much for the excellent service ! We made our hike with 12 stops, some at quite remote locations and we included some days of rest in our hike calendar. The bagage was always where we needed it and when we needed it. Hiking with just water and towel is so much enjoyable that I recommend this service to every hiker on Vicentina



Can not recommend Rota Vicentina luggage transfers more. They made our hike so effortless and stress-free. My partner and I both got sick and had to adjust our plans and Rota Vicentina Luggage Transfers were so flexible and timely in their responses to us. Honestly couldn’t have asked for a better service. Thank you!

Wir sind vom 30.05.2023 bis zum 04.06.2023 von Porto Covo bis Odeceixe gewandert. Der Transport des Gepäcks hat hervorragend geklappt. Er ist individuell planbar, so dass man auch mal länger an einem Ort verweilen kann, bevor es weiter geht. Dieser Service ist nur zu empfehlen. Grüße Jana und Jörg



Excellent service from Vicentina Transfers. Timely, professional, personable and a reasonable price. Very fast responses to all emails. This service made our 5 day walk so much more enjoyable. Highly recommend.

Luggage transfer was one of our concerns at the start of the trek. All resolved with great efficiency by Vicentina transfer. Thanks and congratulations!

Il trasferimento dei bagagli era una delle nostre preoccupazioni all'inizio del trekking. Tutto risolto con grande efficienza dalla Vicentina transfer. Grazie e complimenti!

We hiked in March 2023 11 days on the fishermen's path, in between 2 days break, overall a wonderful vacation in fantastic scenery. The booking of the luggage transport was easy to manage. Our suitcase was reliably transported from accommodation to accommodation. Thank you for the super service. We are happy to recommend it.

Thank you for your flawless service. Always with care and always on time. Vicentina Transfers is so well organised, even my booking made the evening before we started the hike was replied immediately and professionally. And it's affordable too. For me it felt a bit like there were invisible fairies looking after our luggage. Thanks again, I will recommend your service to anyone!

Met een gerust hart even een pauze nemen, want we weten zeker dat onze bagage straks op ons staat te wachten. Jose’s organisatie is betrouwbaar, zeer communicatief en klantgericht. Én hartstikke aardig! Zo kun je maximaal genieten van de Rota Vicentina. Dit leest als een marketingtekst, maar het is gewoon écht zo. Thx Jose en collega’s, you are worth the money.

Bedankt voor de vlekkeloze transporten van één van onze rugzakken. Gedurende 6 dagen maakten we gebruik van jullie diensten. Het was de eerste keer voor ons, een moeilijk moment om bagage achter te laten. Maar alles was top geregeld! Ook jullie website was heel gebruiksvriendelijk! Bravo! Een aanrader.

I want to tell everyone how professional and efficient Vincentia Transfers are! They made our Fisherman’s Route so much easier! I could not recommend them anymore highly! thank you from Kerry and Maureen Brisbane Australia!



I used vicentina transfers April 2023, luggage arrived daily as promised. Communication was great couldn’t fault them, amazing job.

Beat & Hermina


We have done the rota vicentina early April 2023. Our 2 small luggages have been transported over 12 legs (historical & fisherman). We can very much recommend the transfer done by Vicentina. They have realy done a great job. Thanks to the whole team.

We have just completed the second half of the Rota Vicentina, having started it last year. We once again used Vicentina Transfers to take our luggage between overnight stops and once again they have been efficient and a pleasure to deal with.



Seri, celeri,affidabili! Servizio fantastico.Ho utilizzato il servizio transfert per le cinque tappe del mio cammino durante le feste Pasquali.....Tutto perfetto! Grazie loro ho potuto apprezzare maggiormente il lento incedere sulle scogliere sabbiose.Servizio consigliatissimo.Graziw davvero.



We had 7 transfers. Everything worked very well. Even a unexpected change of our hotel was no problem. A very good and reliable service for a good price. Luggage is handled with care. I will book Vicentina Transfers again and can highly reconmend the service

Servizio eccezionale! Non esistesse non saremmo riusciti a fare il nostro bellissimo trek di varie tappe. Grazie di cuore da Francesca, Guido, Isbella e Francesco

Jenny Gu


Our hiking trip is so enjoyable with the luggages being taken cared of everyday. And then I left my jacket in Odeceixe. The gentleman of Vicentina transfer went twice to collect it and delivered it with my luggage to Sagres! They are the trail angels of Rota Vicentina! Thank you so much!

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!!!

Sheila Evans


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!

Angelo e Luisa


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!!!

Violette Schnetz


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. 

Helen and Rod


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.

Frank Pyrdok


Hello Jose,  just want say thank you for all the arrangements and perfect organization.  Well done! Best regards

Jane Braybrook


I would just like to thank you for the services you have provided for us whilst walking the historical route. Bags were always there on arrival and moved seamlessly. Best wishes

Dan Beaulieu


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!

Charlotte and David


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.

Barbara and Don


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


Thank you so much for your excellent service!!!! We really appreciated walking into our accommodation to find all of our luggage already there! Great job!! Very reliable service that made walking the Rota Vicentina a real treat!! I would highly, highly recommend this service to anyone thinking of walking this trail.

Mario Emilio Santini
