Porto, Portugal

I know I’ve said this before – I just love my job. I get to scout out interesting places that you might want to visit. Most recently, Luigi and I spent a week in Portugal. We visited the seaside town of Porto. Originally settled as a Roman outpost, it is one of the oldest cities in Europe – you can just imagine the ancient ruins and historic architecture. In more recent times, this romantic, sensuous city has undergone a renaissance of sorts and has so much to offer visitors – music, art, fine dining, and lots of local color. The birthplace of port wine, this picturesque town in the Douro River valley is a mecca for wine aficionados.

And speaking of wine, we also visited the jewel of an island called Madeira, 370 miles off the coast of Morocco. Known for its lace, gardens, and of course wine, this island is irresistible. We loved it so much that we decided we wanted to share the experience with you all. So, we hope you will join us on our escorted tour to Portugal planned for September of next year.

We thoroughly checked out the many great hotels and activities and found all the best to offer you.

I know, it’s a tough job, but someone has to do it.

Stay tuned for more escorted tours. And, don’t forget – if you want us to design a tour for you, just give us a call.

We love to travel and we know how to navigate all the details so you don’t have to.
