The 19th century Elevado da Bica, one of the city’s funiculars linking its low and high points, runs up Rua Da Bica De Duarte Belo in Bairro Alto. The district is quieter by day with people visiting its small shops, churches and art galleries, but one bursting at night, when Lisboetas flock to its abundant bars, restaurants, and fado clubs.

To finally see everything come together, to see TRVL Agents and travelers connect and help each other through hotel and activity recommendations, fills us with extreme joy and energy. Needless to say, we’re excited to share success stories – take Olivier’s trip to Lisbon, for example…

Tasked with arranging a company trip to Lisbon, Portugal, Olivier reached out to TRVL Agent Yuliya, who knows the city well and was eager to help. After Olivier communicated his budget and his needs (a nice, non-corporate hotel for 8 people in the city center, preferably with a pool and spa), Yuliya suggested a number of hotels that fit the bill. Olivier found the Porto Bay Hotel to be his perfect pick, and booked it – his TRVL Agent, in turn, pockets a neat commission. Now, she’s helping Olivier and his colleagues further by recommending restaurants and activities to make their Lisbon experience even better. High fives all around!

“We tried to book via other agencies in The Netherlands, but missed the local connection”, says Olivier. “Yuliya helped us with a great hotel. Since she is living in Lisbon, we are confident that she’ll also recommend us nice local restaurants and bars, beyond the tourist traps.”

TRVL is crowdsourcing personal recommendations, because these are the best travel tips you can get. Learn more now!
