The Essence of Portugal

Portugal has always been a fabulous destination and now, as the country enjoys a cultural and gastronomic boom, there has never been a better time to visit.

THE ALLURING CITIES OF LISBON AND PORTO, THE BEAUTIFUL DOURO VALLEY, THE BEACHES AND FINE DINING OF THE ALGARVE, TOGETHER WITH SOME UNFORGETTABLE RURAL EXPERIENCES PROVIDE THE TRAVELER WITH A WIDE RANGE OF EXCITING POSSIBILITIES.

As with Spain, we arrange outstanding guides throughout the country to allow you to learn and appreciate the history, art, architecture, customs and cultural traditions. Working with a broad network of insider collaborators, you also have access to a wide range of fascinating places and faces, such as amazing local guides, an authentic Fado singer, art experts, local artisans, wonderful winery owner, a range of chefs and foodie experts, Jewish heritage insiders and the skippers of boats that allow you to enjoy the breeze of the Discoveries.

We love to sprinkle itineraries with eclectic properties where you’ll always be assured of the sincere and warm Portugese hospitality. One of our favorites sits atop a medieval village embracing a castle and commanding majestic views across the countryside.

Lisbon makes an excellent entrée into the Iberian Peninsula but we strongly recommend you explore well beyond Lisbon, into the rural heartlands, along the stunning coastline and allow us to help you discover the essence of Portugal.
