15 Delightful, Independent Tours of Portugal

December 22, 2017 Tour Operator No Comments Email Email

To complete our new program of 15 Portuguese touring holidays we’ve added two exciting new itineraries focusing on central Portugal, from Lisboa to Porto and the country’s main wine regions.

Both tours will let you explore the lesser-known pleasures of central Portugal; the Wine Regions Tour reaches further north to encompass the Minho region at the border with Galicia, whilst the Grand Tour takes time out to enjoy the University City of Coimbra and spend some time at the coast in Art-Deco Aveiro.

As always you’ll stay in our delightful small hotels, travel at a leisurely pace with all the information you need to get the most out of your visit to this fascinating country.

Wine Regions of Portugal Tour PO14 Alentejo – Dão – Douro – Minho – Porto Based on 10 nights self-drive independent wine tour in Portugal A wine-lover’s delight and a wonderful way to discover small-town, rural Portugal in a trip full of contrasts.

From the medieval delights of the Alto Alentejo to historic, granite-built Viseu, heart of the Dão, on to the vertiginous vineyards of the Douro Valley dotted with pristine white wineries and on to the verdant hills of the Minho in the far north – there’s so much to see along the way!

Finish with a small city-break in Porto, centre of Portugal’s wine trade built up over centuries and with a strong history of trade links with Britain.
