Begin your luxury vacation spending several days in Lisbon. As Portugal’s capital city, it is no wonder that Lisbon offers near endless sights to see, but rather than explore them all on foot, you will have the amazing once-in-a-lifetime opportunity to view the city sights and stunning riverside scenery from aboard a luxury catamaran cruise. Also, while in Lisbon, you will have the chance to try your hand at creating an authentic Portuguese pastry under the expert tutelage of a Master Chef. You will then be whisked away via private transfer to a two-day adventure in which you will explore Sintra and Cascais, a land of fairytale castles and sun-dappled beaches.
After your luxury side-jaunt to Sintra, hop over to the Azores where you will spend several days being romanced and refreshed by the peaceful island mentality that can only be described as pure magic. From your base in the main town of Ponta Delgada on Sao Miguel, you will journey all over the island. Whether getting pampered on a spa day among the pristine natural thermal pools in Furnas, witnessing jaw-dropping waterfalls, kayaking or cycling around Sete Cidades, or exploring working tea and pineapple plantations, you will need to pinch yourself to believe that this idyllic archipelago in the middle of the Atlantic is actually real. It is truly that beautiful.
Finish your handcrafted tour with a few days in Porto, where you will enjoy a luxury wine tour of the Douro Valley with an expert sommelier. Then, you will explore the winding streets and beautiful sights of one of Portugal’s hidden gems. Each night, you will stay in luxury accommodations, be absolutely cared for with private transfers to and from specified destinations and airports, and will have every detail of this deluxe tour catered for you with you in mind.
