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.
When you book with us, you’re benefitting from decades of experience. We’ve been carefully crafting tours for more than 40 years, so we know what does (and doesn’t) make a great holiday.
Door-to-door transfers from home are always included in the price of our Portugal holidays, as is the service of a tour manager throughout the tour. Hotels we feature are all handpicked – we look for things like exceptional locations, standout views and properties with an abundance of charm and character. And we include a selection of excursions along the way to really help you get the most out of your trip.
Escorted tours to Portugal
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.
Cruise & Tour holidays
Our Cruise & Tour Portugal holidays start off with tours of Portugal’s highlights (Porto, Coimbra, Lisbon and Sintra), before you board an ocean cruise bound for Barcelona. Calling in at Seville, Málaga, Cartagena and Valencia along the way, it’s a fantastic way to experience Spain’s historic cities.
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 & 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.
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.
