Prices From:
US$ 500

Enjoy the highlights of Porto as you stay in comfortable moderate accommodations and see the main points of interest on fascinating shared excursions. Explore the streets of the historic centre and enjoy a panoramic cruise of the Douro Valley and Port Wine tasting.


Spend 4 days in Porto on this magical city break to Portugal's lovely, yet gritty second city. Of course, you'll have the chance to taste the famous Port wine, and cruise the Duoro Valley in addition to seeing the sights.

Settle into your hotel, ideally located in the historic city centre, and spend the night exploring the city's charms. The following day, a half-day guided tour takes you to historic sights of this UNESCO World Heritage listed city. Visit the Se Cathedral, Bento Train Station, and the famous Leilo Bookshop that (partly) inspired J K Rowling's Harry Potter series. With the balance of the day to explore on your own, you might want to visit the church of Sao Francisco, with its magnificent crypt and golden Baroque interior. Nearby is the Palacio da Bolsa, where the feast for your eyes continues with magnificent Neoclassical designs.

The following day, meet with your group for a full day tour of the Duoro Valley, the source of Porto's natural and culinary riches - and another UNESCO World Heritage site. Enjoy sightseeing including the Nossa Senhora Dos Remedios sanctuary, followed by a one hour cruise on the Duoro and of course, a port wine tasting! Return to Porto for one more night before your departure.
