2018 Age of Discovery – Portugal
In October 2018 it is time for you to discover Portugal and all the beauty, culture and history it has to offer just like Prince Henry, the Navigator did in 1412 when he ordered the first expeditions to the African Coast and Canary Islands. This caped off the Portuguese Age of Discoveries.
This tour will take you around this beautiful country. Starting in Portugal’s capital, Lisbon you will get your first look at the Tagus River whilst walking along the famous cobblestone streets. Take in some rich culture and history with a Fado show and taste authentic Portuguese tarts.
From Lisbon you will then explore the North and visit the birthplace of port wine, Porto. From there we make our way to Algarve in the south, which is known for its Mediterranean beaches, resorts and whitewashed fishing villages on low cliffs overlooking sandy coves.
This is a trip for a small number (between 10 – 15 travellers) designed to take in the rich culture of the country whilst experiencing their laid-back lifestyle.
