Things to do in Portugal with Us
Arrival transfer from Lisbon International Airport.
Notice a 16th-century fortification UNESCO World Heritage Site, that used to be the point of embarkation and disembarkation for Portuguese explorers and a ceremonial gateway to Lisbon. It was built during the height of the Portuguese Renaissance and is a prominent example of the Portuguese Manueline style, whereas it also incorporates hints of other architectural styles. Visit one of the most prominent examples of Lisbon's late Portuguese Gothic Manueline style of architecture. Erected in the 16th century, this World Heritage Site became part of Portuguese identity and culture and owed its construction to tax on the profits of the yearly Portuguese India Armadas. Glimpse a stylized caravel that seems to be setting out to sea, with Henry the Navigator in its prow. Time for a private guided visit to one of the World's most noteworthy collections of horse-drawn carriages, making this a highly recommended stop. It features some imposing horse-drawn vehicles from the 16th century that belonged to Philip II of Spain. Make a stop in Alfama, Lisbon's most emblematic quarter and one of the most rewarding for visitors, thanks to its medieval alleys and outstanding views. Due to its bedrock foundation, it survived the 1755 earthquake, and a walk through this old-fashioned residential neighborhood is now a step back in time. Embark into a unique historical journey while visiting an 11th-century fortification built during the Moorish period. The Castle's purpose was to house military troops and, in case of siege, the elite who lived in the citadel, unlike most European castles that used to serve as a residence. Enjoy a private visit to a one-of-a-kind attraction housed in a magnificent old convent from 1509 with a tile collection featuring pieces that go back to the 1400s. It explains the origins and evolution of art in Portugal, which ended up being the country with the most extensive and innovative uses of tiles.

It stands out as the renowned jewel in the crown of the Sintra Hills. In its nooks and corners, our gaze gets lost in its charms. Pass by Cascais, a formerly quaint fishing village that became a popular resort favored by European nobility and kings in the early 20th century. Today it is a colorful cosmopolitan town with elegant pedestrian streets, luxuriant villas, fashionable shops, restaurants, and bars.

Time to stop at the most prominent Gothic monument in Porto noted for its outstanding Baroque interior decoration. Experience a private visit and wine tasting to one of the oldest wine cellars and the largest wooden Port Cellar in the historic area of Vila Nova de Gaia.
