PORTO& DOURO REGION
A FOOD, WINE & CULTURAL TOUR
6 DAYS / 6 NIGHTS
Explore the best of Northern Portugal, on this leisurely 6-day & 6-night, wine, food and cultural tour,
through what is often described as the most beautiful wine region in the world. Here you can sip port in picturesque Porto, a UNESCO World Heritage Site, experience wine tastings at vineyards impressively terraced on the hills alongside the Douro River, and step back in time within the medieval castle-town of Guimarães, where the 1st King of Portugal was born to French and Spanish royals. Throughout your vacation you will stay in beautiful and welcoming accommodations, enjoy local recipes, seasonal produce, take leisurely cruises up the Douro River, and go wine tasting at vineyards where the heart and art of wines are elegantly expressed. A mere mile from the Atlantic Ocean, there is an abundance of fresh seafood to enjoy, along with renowned Portuguese cheeses, breads and cuisine to savor.
Portugal is perfect for 1st time travelers to Europe, as most Portuguese are proficient English-speakers and known for being wonderfully welcoming. As one of the oldest nations in Europe, and leader in ‘The Age of Discovery,’ Portugal is a place unlike any other, a place inspired by global explorations, a place where art, architecture, food and wine express elements of the world, all the while remaining uniquely Portuguese.
