Portugal tours and holidays

Portugal might be most famous for its glorious beaches, but there’s a lot more to this country than golden sands. Whether you’re dreaming of the mainland or the volcanic island of Madeira, our Portugal tours can show you captivating cities, historic hill towns, rolling countryside and subtropical landscapes

Stroll along riverside terraces, ancient city walls or lush levadas. Tuck into hearty seafood stews and flaky custard tarts. Admire Lisbon’s cinematic hilltops, Porto’s mazy cobbled streets or Funchal’s flower-filled gardens. Immerse yourself in local history at traditional pousadas. And sip delicious ruby-red ports and fortified wines.

If you’re looking for something a bit different for your holiday to Portugal, take a look at our Douro river cruises. After starting in Porto, sightseeing and wine-sipping, you’ll slowly meander through the UNESCO-protected Douro River Valley, admiring views of terraced vineyards and stopping off to explore historic cities, castles and palaces.

Escorted tours

Our escorted tours to Portugal are designed to give you a real insight into the country’s culture and history. Our ‘Grand Designs of Portugal’ tours  feature stays in a trio of pousadas – traditional hotels each with a fascinating history (a converted 16th-century convent, say, or a restored Belle Epoque hotel). As we travel north from Arraiolos to Porto, we’ll explore Vila Viçosa’s Duke’s Palace and Évora’s Gothic-medieval cathedral, and enjoy a wine tasting in a historic port cellar. On our ‘Undiscovered Portugal’ tours, meanwhile, we can help you get off the beaten track, as we nose inland from Lisbon and make our way down to the Algarve via quiet country towns and villages steeped in tradition.

Madeira

Madeira’s dramatic landscapes, year-round sunshine and festival-filled calendar have won it plenty of fans over the years. We can help you uncover the island’s charms on our expertly planned itineraries, all based in the lively capital, Funchal. Our 8-day stay and explore itinerary offers an ideal introduction to Madeira, with comprehensive tours of Funchal and the rest of the island, while our Flower Festival holiday is designed to coincide perfectly with the festival’s processions and exhibitions. We also offer a selection of ocean cruises calling in at Madeira  as part of a longer itinerary.

River cruises

Alternatively, you could travel through the vineyard-laced landscapes of northern Portugal on a Douro river cruise. Our handpicked itinerary takes you from Porto to Salamanca and back again – a great option if you want to combine Spain and Portugal in one holiday. As well as excursions, there’s plenty of time to soak up the sun (and views) up on deck as we cruise along the beautiful Douro River.
