Day 1: Welcome to Portugal A tour guide will be waiting for you at the Lisbon International Airport to give you a warm welcome and to escort you to your hotel in Lisbon.

Day 2: Lisbon, Sintra & Bucelas Three Portuguese wines with the longest history and tradition are produced within close proximity of Lisbon. In Bucelas, the wine is produced in an unusual manner, and the region stretches all the way through the floodplains of the Trancão River and the Bemposta Stream. In the Colares region, with breathtaking views of the sea and Sintra Mountain Range, vine plants grow and proliferate on sandy grounds. Finally, Carcavelos, birthplace to the wine that once was the most famous fortified wine in Portugal. The Private Tour begins with a brief stroll through the historic centre of the romantic town. We move on through the exuberant vegetation and beautiful scenery of the Sintra Natural Park. Once there you will have a guided private tour and will taste of famous wines of Bucelas, followed by a visit to Cabo da Roca, the westernmost point of Europe, before arriving at Praia do Guincho where the best seafood and fish restaurants of the region can be found. Return to Lisbon along the Atlantic coastline, driving through Cascais and Estoril. Accommodation in Lisbon.

Day 3: Alentejo and Setúbal Peninsula After breakfast at the hotel, you begin your tour across the Tagus estuary, with a stunning portrait of Lisbon from the Vasco da Gama Bridge, heading for Alentejo, known for its golden plains. In a land of vineyards, planted by Phoenicians, Greeks and Romans, wine producers have managed to place the Alentejo brand amongst the greatest Portuguese wines. The Private Tour begins with a visit to one of the most prestigious estates in the region: the Herdade do Esporão. After lunch, we will once again cross the plains of Alentejo, heading for yet another wine region: the Setúbal Peninsula, a land of great viticulture traditions, known as the Costa Azul, located south of the Tagus estuary. Here you visit the José Maria da Fonseca Cellars for a brief wine tasting, before returning to Lisbon via the April 25th Bridge. Accommodation in Lisbon.
Day 4: Dão and Bairrada The wine producing region of Dão with its DOC wines, is located in the central-north of Portugal, in the province of Beira Alta. This region produces mainly red wines characterized by an average alcohol content of 12% Alc/Vol. Bairrada, a territory of grapes, vineyards and great wines, is a region of sunny and muddy gentle hills and its boundaries are the natural dunes of the coastline and the mountains of Buçaco (Bos Sacrum Bussaco-Roman) and Caramulo. Accommodation in Porto.

Day 5: Vinho Verde The Vinho Verde is unique. It's a naturally light and fresh wine, produced in the Vinho Verde Region in north-western Portugal, a coastal region well placed for the production of excellent white wines. Cradle of the charismatic Alvarinho and producer of unique batches of wine, the Vinho Verde Region celebrated in 2008 the centenary of its demarcation. The Private Tour takes you to some of the most important estates involved in the production of Vinho Verde, followed by a visit to the historic centres of Guimarães and Ponte de Lima. Accommodation in Porto.

Day 6: Douro Wine Region In the morning you depart from Porto heading northeast. Your destination is Régua, located in the Douro Wine Region, considered in March 2010 as the World’s 7th Best Sustainable Tourism Destination by National Geographic. This tour will take more or less 90 minutes. You continue to Pinhão travelling on one of the most enchanting routes in Portugal, alongside the Douro Rivers’ left riverbank. In the small town of Pinhão we pay a visit to what used to be the old railway station, now a museum. Afterwards you visit the current railway station, well known for its 24 tile pictures portraying the Douro landscapes. The Private Tour then takes you to two wine producing estates so you can learn about the current and former production processes. An excellent experience that allows you to taste the extraordinary wines produced. Return and accommodation in Porto.

Day 7: Porto The Douro River runs to the Atlantic Ocean in the city of Porto, the city where this tour will also come to an end. Following breakfast at the hotel, you will have a private guided tour through the streets of Porto. The Private Tour begins in front of the City Hall, and from there you go on to visit the city’s most emblematic monuments with a grand ending at the Port wine cellars on the other side of the Douro River, with a special treat… A toast… with the famous Port wine! In a colourful urban landscape you will witness the magnificence of the great architectural symbols of the “Invicta” city. Highlights include the Cathedral, the Palácio da Bolsa and the Church of St. Francisco, all great examples of Baroque art. In the afternoon, you will enjoy a cruise on the Douro River, giving you a totally different perspective of the city’s beauty. This is followed by visits to Serralves Museum, Casa da Musica and the city’s beaches. Return to selected hotel in Porto.
