Trip Summary

The package is perfect for those who wish to see two of the iconic Portuguese cities whilst experiencing the true Portuguese way of life, with famous wines and local gastronomy. You will firstly spend time in Porto to learn about Port, visiting a selection of renowned Port lodges. You will then travel by rail to Lisbon to discover Portugal’s beautiful historic capital city and sample more Portuguese wine including moscatel wine. You will also have the chance to explore Lisbon’s surroundings on a trip to a traditional fishing town and to the Arrábida National Park.

Upon arrival in Porto, check into your preferred room at the 4* Carris Hotel, ideally located in the city centre. The evening will be free for you to do as you please.

Walking between each destination on day two in Porto, you will visit two esteemed port wine lodges. The famous Sandeman Port wine lodge boasts a magnificent view of Porto. Here, your English-speaking guide will accompany you through the lodges full of casks of ageing Porto wine and your visit will conclude with a tutored tasting of ten, twenty, thirty and forty-year-old aged Tawny ports. You will also enjoy a guided tour and tastings at the renowned Grahams Port wine lodge.

Also included in the package is a 50-minute Douro river cruise in a Rabelo boat. Rabelo boats were historically used to transport Port wine barrels from the inner Douro region to Porto and Vila Nova de Gaia, where the wine cellars are located.
