Taking on a whole new region of Portugal can be a daunting prospect: studying maps and guidebooks, trawling through bus and train timetables, researching must-see sites and lesser-known hidden gems.Take the beautiful Serra de Arrabida – it’s often overlooked by visitors to Lisbon. Sitting between the river Tagus and the Sado Estuary, this protected nature reserve is home to the 12th century Castelo de Palmela, the Azeitao vineyards (Europe’s oldest producer of muscatel), and the port of Setubal, which has been transformed from the country’s largest industrial centre to a popular, dynamic 21st century city.Our guided tours remove the stress of planning, optimising your time without you feeling rushed or hurried. On our Minho Tour, you’ll visit the Roman Braga and the Thermae Maximinus baths, the baroque Bom Jesus do Monte pilgrimage site and the 10th century Castelo de Guimaraes, considered the birthplace of modern Portugal. Our guides have a plan but we prefer private, flexible tours and you’re not held to a strict timetable – if you’d like to get your hands dirty in vineyhards of the Tras-os-Montes, with time to savour a glass of local Vino Verde, so be it.Our guides are a treasure trove of in-depth local knowledge, and their insight and passion will unveil Portugal’s extraordinary history, geology, culture and cuisine.
