More Details

Your best luxury Portugal tour begins first in fairy tale Porto. After settling in to your five-star hotel, embark on a private boat tour of Porto at sunset. You will of course have plenty of authentic cheeses, hams, breads, and snacks to accompany your cruise, along with a bottle of local wine.

Next, enjoy a half-day walking tour of Porto's creative side with a private guide. Indeed, Porto’s artistic wealth, cobbled streets, Port wine, and unique colors make it a memorable city for visitors. Along the way, you will receive an exclusive visit to Bolsa Palace.

Your time in Porto finally concludes with a private tour, tasting, and dinner at Taylor's Wine Cellar.

Next, head to the Douro Valley, the oldest demarcated wine region in the world. Before arriving, explore the gardens of Mateus Palace and the historic city of Vila Real in a vintage car. Cap off the exclusive experience at a convent confectionery factory to taste its sweets alongside a good Port wine.

Finally, you will arrive at Six Senses Douro Valley where you will indulge in a spa session and dinner at the chef's table.

Of course, no "Best of Portugal" trip would be complete without a boat ride on the Douro River. Therefore, you will depart on a vintage English Trawler boat to Quinta Nova for a delicious lunch and wine tasting. You will also receive a guided tour of another local winery and the Wine Museum Center. 

As always, Ker & Downey can recommend and secure reservations to Michelin-starred restaurants throughout your food and wine tour to Portugal. 

Lastly, your luxury Portugal tour concludes in the country's capital city of Lisbon. En route from Douro to Lisbon, stop in Coimbra for a private tour of the University and Joanina. Then pause for lunch at a special vineyard for a wine tasting and lunch with the family owners.

Upon arrival in Lisbon, you will have access to several unique Ker & Downey experiences. For example, we will give you the keys to the Calouste Gulbenkian Foundation for a private visit. Additionally, witness Equestrian Art at Queluz Palace. And partake in a special Fado tour in the Alfama district, the oldest neighborhood in the city.

Of course, you will also see many of Lisbon's highlights on private tours. This includes Belém, the Monument to the Discoveries, and Jerónimos Monastery, a UNESCO World Heritage Site. Additionally, explore the country's jewel, Pena Palace, before it opens to the public. And stop at the the stunning Quinta da Regaleira nearby.

Finally, Ker & Downey has included a few surprises for a different view of the city. Enjoy a traditional homemade meal with Portuguese wine in a local home. Then, end your Best of Portugal trip with a sunset ride along the Tagus in a private sailboat.
