No problem, we purposely provide flexibility and gaps in activities so you can travel and experience at your own pace. Hit the beach or hang at the hotel, the choice is yours!
Tchau (bye) Lisbon, off to Porto! If Porto sounds familiar, it’s probably because you like dessert wine. Porto is the birthplace of Port wine, a fortified wine, in the same category as Spanish Sherry. We’ll arrive in style by chartered bus and get you settled in before checking out the city and all it has to offer.

Smaller than Lisbon, but with just as much flair, Porto is a coastal city in Northwest Portugal known for its stately bridges and wine production. We’ll show you around and introduce you to the medieval Ribeira (riverside) district with its narrow, cobbled streets and to São Francisco Church, known for its lavish baroque interior with ornate gilded carvings and the palatial 19th-century Palácio de Bolsa. Plenty to see in the second-largest city in Portugal.
