Itinerary

Expand All

Day 1 : Arrive Lisbon

Location: Lisbon

Accommodation: Hotel

Accommodation Name: VIP Executive Zurique Hotel

Meals Included: Dinner

Pastel and azulejo-clad façades line Lisbon’s narrow streets which ramble across and over its seven hills from St. George Castle to the Tagus River. Gaze over the Portuguese capital’s terracotta rooftops, soaking up its small-town atmosphere before meeting your Travel Director and companheiros for a glimpse of what lies ahead. Tonight you’ll join your Travel Director and fellow travellers for dinner and sample some of the local favourites that you’ll encounter throughout your journey across Portugal.

Day 2 : Lisbon Sightseeing And Free Time

Location: Lisbon

Accommodation: Hotel

Accommodation Name: VIP Executive Zurique Hotel

Meals Included: Breakfast

Explore the Age of the Discoveries and Portugal’s role as a global maritime power many centuries ago when you join a Local Specialist for a sightseeing tour. See the Hieronymite Monastery and the medieval quarter before taking in views of the alabaster-white Belém Tower and the Monument to the Discoveries before taking the rest of the day to explore on your own. Consider joining an Optional Experience to Portugal’s Golden Triangle of Cascais, Estoril and Sintra to see some of the country’s most extravagant palaces during your free afternoon. This evening, perhaps join an optional traditional Portuguese dinner amidst the heart-wrenching, melancholic sounds of the fado.

Day 3 : Lisbon Free Day

Location: Lisbon

Accommodation: Hotel

Accommodation Name: VIP Executive Zurique Hotel

Meals Included: Breakfast

Que bom! A full free day in Lisboa to explore the enchanting Portuguese capital your way. The secret to living a long life lies in eating a big breakfast, but as you’ll come to discover in Lisbon that may extend to a big lunch and dinner too. Spend the day indulging in a culinary adventure on your own or choose an optional visit to the fishing village of Nazaré, set on a wide bay overlooking the Atlantic. This Optional Experience also includes a visit to Óbidos where you’ll have time to explore the medieval walled city with its whitewashed houses and cobblestone lanes. Aside from its obvious charm and history that pre-dates the founding of Portugal, Óbidos is also home to the delightfully decadent Ginja cherry liqueur served up in tiny chocolate cups. Don’t go home without a taste or two!

Day 4 : Lisbon – Tomar – Fátima

Location: Lisbon, Tomar, Fátima

Accommodation: Hotel

Accommodation Name: Hotel Fátima

Meals Included: Breakfast, Dinner

Leave Lisbon behind, bound for the Templar city of Tomar for a sightseeing tour, a beautiful reminder of Portuguese Renaissance. Continue to Fátima, a site of a celebrated religious miracle where three young shepherds are said to have seen an apparition of the Virgin Mary in 1917. Explore the Basilica and Sanctuary on your own before dinner at your hotel with your travel companions.

Day 5 : Fátima – Coimbra – Porto (2 Nights)

Location: Fátima, Coimbra, Porto

Accommodation: Hotel

Accommodation Name: Holiday Inn Porto Gaia

Meals Included: Breakfast

Travel to Coimbra to explore the city your way before continuing to Porto. Arrive in time for a sightseeing tour with a Local Specialist of the city’s UNESCO-listed medieval Ribeira Quarter, the port and the remarkable bridges that span the Douro River. With an evening to do as you wish, you may be tempted to head to the water's edge and one of the city’s Port wine cellars for a tasting and insights into the centuries-old tradition of local Port production.

Day 6 : Porto Free Day

Location: Porto

Accommodation: Hotel

Accommodation Name: Holiday Inn Porto Gaia

Meals Included: Breakfast

Savour a full day to go back in time and explore Porto’s historic centre with its beautiful Baroque façades. You could choose instead to join an Optional Experience to Braga, Portugal’s religious capital. A Local Specialist will reveal insights into Braga’s historic centre and you’ll have an opportunity to see Europe’s largest and most magnificent sculpted Baroque staircase. This evening, an optional cruise along the Douro, followed by a dinner of local specialties, is a fitting way to end your journey through Portugal. Watch the city light up as you enjoy a night cap and the fresh river breeze.

Day 7 : Depart Porto – Lisbon

Location: Porto, Lisbon

Meals Included: Breakfast

Say a fond farewell to our Tripeiros hosts as you prepare for your return Lisbon. You've explored Portugal's illustrious past, savoured Mediterranean flavours that will linger long after you leave and made lasting new friendships.

Best trip ever!

20-Jan-2023

Our trip was absolutely outstanding, organized and just plain fun. Agnes is a wonderful tour-guide, knowledgeable and we never had to worry about anything. And Frank, our bus driver, always had a smile and gave us the smoothest bus ride ever! And I've been on buses around the world... If we ever go again (hopefully), Costsaver would be my first and only choice and hopefully we will get "team" Agnes and Frank again.
