For a full recap to our two weeks of travels in Portugal via the big “Let’s Go America! Tour” – Lisbon, and also the big “Let’s Go America! Tour” – Porto / Douro River Cruise — CLICK THIS LINK to access the .pdf — as it includes a summary of the daily itinerary, live remote broadcasts, photos, varied social media posts and a sampling of testimonials and comments from show fans in each location!

America’s #1 Travel Radio Show is currently heard on 525+ weekly stations across the USA (as of 31 July 2023), and as our fans/followers know we only agree to take the show “on-the-road” and “out-of-the-studio” up to 8x’s per year.  When we do, these week or multi-week long travels become a big “Let’s Go America! Tour” — and the purpose of each trip is to educate, entice and empower our show fans to go experience the world.  We believe that when you do not only are you better off for it, the world is as well!  So this is our way to say “Get off the sofa, get out from behind the desk, get out of those daily routines and “LET’S GO AMERICA!”

For our latest travels Portugal was the focus, and we spent 15 days exploring many regions of this Iberian Peninsula nation.  Week 1 featured the big “Let’s Go America! Tour” – Lisbon, while Week 2 was the big “Let’s Go America! Tour” – Porto / Douro River Cruise.  The second week also featured some of our show fans/followers from around America joining us aboard the AmaDouro, as part of a Amawaterways River Cruise.  Each destination included a live broadcast of America’s #1 Travel Radio Show, working with show parter Hilton and their luxury Curio branded properties — The Emerald House Lisbon and Boeira Garden Hotel Porto Gaia.

Each day of our big “Let’s Go America! Tour” had us involved in so many different activities and adventures, and they culminated with live remote broadcasts of the program from Lisbon and Porto/Gaia.
