Custom Solo Tours Portugal

Portugal might be a small country but it is certainly rich in history, culture and for us a smorgasboard of endless sights. The country is abound with picturesque villages, beautiful coastlines, stunning valleys and medieval castles and Portuguese certainly have a vibrancy to life that is infectious to all who visit. Lisbon makes an excellent entrée into the Iberian Peninsular with travel writers pouring into the city and outpouring superlatives to talk about the revitalized local neighbourhood, the food scene and cultural renaissance of this historic city. Discover the stunning vineyards of the Doura Valley as you sip some of the best port wine in the world and perhaps try the coveted Azaruja sausage made from black Alentejo pigs and enjoy Fado at its’ best in Coimbra. Portugal’s seafaring history has blended flavours that have become essentials including olive oil, onions, bay leaves, sweet and hot peppers, saffron, vanilla and cinnamon. The infusion of wine, olive oil and garlic flavours adds a comforting taste, delivering full-flavoured dishes closely related to Mediterranean cuisine.
