Duration
10 Days
Prices From:
US$ 3,189

Experience the best of Portugal from north to south on this journey to Porto, Lisbon, and the Algarve. Enjoy private guided tours in Porto and Lisbon to discover their history, cruise along the Douro River and enjoy a wine tasting. Finally, bask in the warm sunshine and sunny beaches of the nation’s south.


This 10-day Portuguese vacation takes you to Porto, Lisbon, and the Algarve to experience the best of Portugal. It features deluxe accommodations, a mix of shared and private tours, and is a great first trip through the country. 

Your journey begins in the 5-star PortoBay Flores in Porto, the city famous for its fortified wine and stunning medieval atmosphere. A half-day private tour will showcase some of the most memorable parts of the city, starting at the wide Neoclassical boulevard of Avenue dos Aliados. See the train station of Estacao de Sao Bento and admire its 20,000 ceramic tile design, cross the Dom Luis I Bridge, and cap off the day with a Port tasting in a celebrated wine cellar. The next day, head into the Douro Valley to experience this beautiful wine region on a shared tour. Visit the Nossa Senhora dos Remedios Sanctuary in Lamego, where you’ll enjoy lunch, before cruising the Douro River and ending the tour with another wine tasting. 

From Porto, ride the train to the capital Lisbon, where you’ll stay at Tivoli Avenida Liberdade. A private half-day tour will take you to the sights and showcase the city’s fascinating history. Start in Edward VII Park, stroll through the narrow streets of Alfama to admire the Moorish designs, and reach the Belem Quarter, where you’ll spot the city’s two architectural icons: Jeronimos Monastery and Belem Tower. That night, head back out to admire these masterworks lit up under the stars. Then head to a local restaurant to feast on Portuguese cuisine and enjoy a Fado performance, listening to the haunting sounds of this folk music late into the night.

The final stop on your journey through Portugal is the Algarve, the sunny southern region that’s famous for its rocky beaches and year-round warm weather. Staying at the Bale Vista Hotel & Spa, you’ll have two days at leisure to enjoy the pleasures of this resort region. Spend your days sunbathing and swimming in the waters, head to nearby Marina Portimao to hit up some restaurants, or visit nearby Faro to delve into the region’s history. 

At the end of your stay, you’ll head to the airport or train station to connect to your next destination.
