Explore the coastal cities and natural wonders in-depth on our 8-day Portugal guided tours.

Along Europe's Scenic "Yellow Roads"

Discover the seafaring charms of the coast, the lush river valley vineyards, the hilltop castles and villages in its alpine interior and monuments to grandiose man-made achievements... Portugal may be small... but it’s big on vibrant culture, history, and natural beauty that invites intimate exploration.

Spend two nights in the ancient port city of Porto with guided visits to two UNESCO World Heritage Sites, the Douro Wine Region and the historic center of Oporto. Your unique accommodation in Évora is a converted, 15th-century convent, setting the scene for guided exploration of the Convent of the Order of Christ and the historic city, both UNESCO World Heritage Sites, plus wine and olive oil tastings in the country; and in Lisbon, a two-night stay in Portugal’s capital city includes excursions to seaside Cascais and Sintra, a UNESCO World Heritage Site. Unique experiences include visits to seven UNESCO World Heritage Sites on guided visits with local experts; private dinner at the National Palace of Queluz (Palacio de Queluz); and tastings of world-famous port wine and olive oil during a tour and lunch at a renowned winery.

Tauck Exclusive – Private evening at Palacio de Queluz

Get the royal treatment with an exclusive private tour and dinner at Lisbon's Palacio de Queluz

Often referred to as the “Portuguese Versailles,” the Palácio de Queluz (Palace of Queluz) was one of Europe’s last significant Rococo structures. It served as the royal residence of Portugal’s King Pedro III and Queen Maria I (a.k.a. Maria the Pious or Maria the Mad, due to the mental illness she suffered later in life) in the late 18th- and early 19th-centuries. Today, the magnificent estate and its gorgeous formal gardens are a National Monument of Portugal… and the setting for your Tauck Exclusive private tour and dinner.

Azulejos traditions at the National Tile Museum

Day 6

Learn about Lisbon's centuries-old azulejos traditions at the National Tile Museum

The art of creating azulejos – exquisitely painted, glazed ceramic tiles – is a time-honored tradition in Portugal. These colorful tiles are an integral part of Portuguese architecture and design; their centuries-old patterns and the stories they tell reveal much about the country's history and culture. Feast your eyes on some stunning examples on a visit to Lisbon's dazzling National Tile Museum, dedicated to the art and history of azulejos, whose bold colors and designs decorate buildings all over Portugal's capital city.

Hotel Infante Sagres

Nights 1 and 2

Enjoy the rebirth of a Porto legend... Hotel Infante Sagres

Named for Porto’s native son, 15th-century Prince Henry the Navigator (also known as the Prince, or Infante, of Sagres), the Infante Sagres first opened in 1951 and served as the city’s most prestigious luxury hotel for more than 60 years. In 2018, this legendary grande dame of Portuguese hotels reopened its doors after a meticulous renovation in which a team of leading designers and master craftsmen has transformed its graceful heritage interior, elevating it to an unprecedented level of refinement.

It was wonderful to discover the abundance of treasures (art, history, literature) in this tiny, scenic outpost of Europe!

Small Group Departures

Our small group departures, averaging just 24 guests, are designed for travelers who want more time to experience each destination up close and personally. One of the benefits of small group travel is the personalized service and attention you’ll enjoy. Small groups enable our Tauck Directors to spend more time in the places you explore with more opportunities to connect with them. Smaller groups foster camaraderie and lasting friendships among like-minded travelers; you'll engage more closely with local experts and enjoy enhanced insider access, ease of travel and freedom to linger longer.

Solo Traveler Savings

Traveling solo doesn't mean traveling alone – with Tauck, it means camaraderie on a journey with like-minded travelers who share similar interests, enjoying the spirit of travel that makes exploring the world a necessary part of life – and sharing the special travel experiences found on Tauck’s guided land trips and cruises that create lifetime memories. For 90+ years, solo travelers have found a special "travel" home with Tauck in destinations the world over – and we’re offering solo travelers an additional reason to travel with Tauck – special Solo Traveler Savings on select departures.
