On your private group tour to wonderful Portugal, you will get a taste of the best this country offers.
You will experience the charm and beauty of this wonderful country, visiting its well-preserved castles, fortified towns, historical ports, and magnificent coast. This small country is just 92,000 square km, which makes getting around the country relaxed and easy.
Once a medieval superpower due to its superior navigational skills, Portugal has history at every turn. It was visited – invaded – by the Romans, the Celts, the neighbouring Moors and Christians. Today, the country is primarily Catholic, with over 80% of the 10.5 million inhabitants identifying as Catholic. Today, Portuguese is the 6th most spoken language in the world. This is mainly due to the colonisation of countries like Brazil, Angola, Mozambique and even parts of India and the sub-continent.
You will visit several destinations listed by UNESCO as World Heritage Sites, including the iconic Belem district in Lisbon, the colourful Sintra historic centre filled with castles in the style of 19th-century Romantic architecture, the medieval town of Obidos and the impressive Monastery of Batalha built to commemorate the 1385 Portuguese victory over the Castilians.
You’ll also have three nights in Lisbon, Portugal's capital and largest city, serving as the country’s chief port. As a port city, Lisbon has been a gateway to the wider world, moulded by a succession of different cultures. The city reached its heights after the Reconquista and during the Age of Exploration. It developed its own architectural style, Manueline, named after its monarch Manuel I. This architectural style, seen only in Portugal in the 16th century, is characterised by rich and lavish ornamentation and nautical themes, such as mouldings encrusted with carved barnacles and nautical instruments over windows and doors.
There is much to see and do, and along way you’ll be enjoying delicious Portuguese food, wine and hospitality.
