Porto is one of the most popular destinations in Portugal – and not just because of its beautiful old town on the Douro River. In addition to being home to some of Europe’s finest restaurants and seafood, Porto also boasts some of the continent’s best art museums, Cathedrals, wine regions, and architectural buildings.


Sintra is one of the most enchanting towns in Portugal and is perhaps the most popular day trip from Lisbon. Located in the heart of the Serra de Sintra mountain range, it offers visitors a unique combination of history, culture, and nature. Its beautiful architecture, quaint streets, and picturesque views make it a must-see destination.

Other Tour Destinations For You To Consider

Praça do Comércio Square

Regarded as the finest square in Lisbon, our guests love the bright yellow Pombaline-style buildings on either side of the magnificent arched entrance. The Praça do Comércio reflects Portugal’s Golden Era when captains and merchants would plot their voyages across the seas.

Jerónimos Monastery

Another of the city’s UNESCO World Heritage sites, the 16th Century Monastery is perhaps the finest example of Manueline architecture and uses design and symbolism to reveal stories that glorify Portugal’s “Age of Discovery”. Here your guide will also deliver you to the tombs of the great explorer Vasco da Gama and 15th-century poet Luís de Camões.

Saint George's Castle

Visible from almost anywhere in the city, getting up close to this 6th Century structure and its 11 towers on a private tour will enable your guide to reveal the centuries of intrigue, Moorish traditions, and war stories throughout the castle’s history. Visit the museum inside to learn more about the heritage of Lisbon

The Belém Tower

Constructed 500 years ago on the North Bank of the River Tagus is one of the most beautiful sights in all of Portugal and was awarded UNESCO World Heritage status forty years ago. Enjoy the glorious views looking onto its Manueline architecture (Portuguese late Gothic) and from the terrace atop the spiral staircase that looks out over the city.

Porto Cathedral (Sé do Porto)

The city’s most important church. Built during the 12th and 13th centuries, it is a treasured national monument. Look for the Gothic cloister, the chapel paintings, the Teixeira Lopes sculpture in the baptismal font, and the medieval portrait of our lady of Vandoma, our city’s patroness.

Livraria Lello

Worth its reputation as the most beautiful bookstore in the world. Opened in 1906 the stunning neo-gothic architecture, wooden panels, and thousands of books create an exquisite atmosphere. Interestingly enough, the Livraria Lello was struggling financially until it was revealed that it was the inspiration for the staircase at Hogwarts in the Harry Potter movie franchise.

Porto Wine Cellars

Naturally, the city is famous for the production of the wine that bears its name. The vineyards come from the nearby Duro Valley which offers fabulous day tours from Porto. Some of the most cellars to visit include Taylor’s, Ramos Pinto, and the iconic Sandeman.

Clerigos Tower

Perhaps the most well-known landmark in Porto, the 75-meter-tall bell tower was constructed between 1735 – 1748 in beautiful Baroque style, and climbing the steps to the top provides stunning views across the city.

Pena National Palace

Walking around the Pena National Palace is truly like stepping into the pages of a fairytale novel. Join your guide at the peak of the Sintra mountains to be overawed by the German Romantic style architecture, dreaming spires, romantic balconies, and ornate gargoyle details. Meanwhile inside the castle has been restored to how it looked in 1910.

Quinta da Regaleira

The finest 19th-century villa in Sintra, and perhaps all of Portugal. Along with your guide, you will hear the centuries of history and dramatic tales as you enjoy the neo-gothic architecture, lush green gardens and initiation well,  and spiral staircases contained with Quinta da Regaleira.

Palace of Monserrate

In the Sintra region, there is no more impressive residence than the Palacio de Monserrate. The villa is an extravagant blend of Arabic and Renaissance styles, surrounded by beautiful English gardens, and set against the rugged hillside of the Serra de Sintra. Within, there are finely detailed lattice carvings and geometric patterns. 

Castelo dos Mouros

Meaning Castle of the Moors, the earliest parts of this fortress date back to the 9th century. Join your guide as you walk the castle walls and explore the secret passages and Romanesque church within.


Tavira enjoys a reputation as one of the Algarve’s prettiest towns. Its ruined castle, ancient Roman bridge, and Gothic and Renaissance era architecture, design, and churches make it an ideal base for exploring the region’s natural beauty.

Island of Pico

This island in the Azores is famous for three things, whale watching, wine tasting, and climbing Mount Pico.

Sao Miguel Island

Unquestionably one of the most beautiful islands in the Azores and is often referred to as “The Hawaii of Europe.” Along with stunning views, Sao Miguel offers incredibly diverse landscapes for a small island, from crater lakes to verdant plains. Along with exploring the variety of trails on the island you can visit its two volcanic lakes – Lagoa Azul (Blue Lake) and Lagoa Verdes (Green Lake).


Perhaps the best-known city in the Algarve, Lagos is a town with 2000 years of history behind it. Highlights include Duna beach, the 16th-century old town, cliffside walks along Praia do Pinhao along with kayaking or private boat tours to Benagil cave.
