Portugal – Beauty at the Edge of Europe

A once powerful country with colonies in Africa, Southeast Asia and the South America, Portugal today is fully part of the European community. From Porto (a world heritage city) in the north to Lisbon in the south, a visit to Portugal is endlessly rewarding and refreshing.

About Our Tours

Lisbon and Porto

Lisbon, the capital of Portugal, is the Los Angeles, the Tel Aviv, the Miami, the Rio de Janeiro of Europe.  Brassy, full of life.  Great restaurants and a culture all its own.  We will visit top restaurants, the new port full of new shops and the historic heart of the city.

Porto –  Porto is one of the most beautiful cities in Europe, a UNESCO World Heritage City, and like Bordeaux a major wine port.  Situated at the estuary of the majestic Douro river, Porto is divided into the Portuguese center and the merchant neighbor Vila Nova (new city) de Gaia, the center of the wine trade. We will visit the center of the wine trade with tastings at some of the major Port houses, Dow, Warres, Fonseca, Taylors and others. We will visit the resort seaside of Porto for a lunch at the edge of the Atlantic Ocean.  And of course a visit to historic Porto, the great Eiffel bridge, and the best restaurants in town.
