Tour Description

Discover one of the oldest and most stable Nations of Europe by joining a tour ran by a local reliable operator. Portugal is a country were the land touches the sea; the green of the high mountains stretches over the vast golden grain fields; where the white of limestone contrasts against the rough beautiful granite; where the busy towns contrast with the quietness of small villages. Portugal offers a sophisticated and contemporary architecture mixed with the culture of the glorious past in the form of castles, palaces and churches. All this can only be completed with the wonderful welcoming art of the Portuguese people.
