Spain & Portugal
Two intriguing countries and one dramatic river equal a grand adventure! Join Jacinta on an ultimate all-inclusive three week journey, experiencing legendary Spanish cities, setting sail on the Douro River and discovering regional Portugal.
Madrid, renowned for its museums, stately royal palace and vibrant nightlife; and Toledo, the city of El Greco and a magnificent tribute to the three great cultures that forged Spain, before we cruise through the UNESCO-designated Douro Valley, where grapes have been grown for 2,000 years, visiting picturesque quintas and meeting the winemakers who operate them, as well as tasting the wine. Travel through the verdant countryside to Óbidos, a charming hilltop town that has entranced visitors since the 13th century en route to Portugal’s colourful capital of Lisbon.
Stopping into the Algarve region along the beautiful southern coastline of Portugal, we immerse ourselves in the food and wine culture – a food lover’s paradise!
The journey finishes on board the train Al Andalus which is probably the most spacious and luxurious tourist train in the world. Its four lounge cars are exquisite railway classics built between 1928 and 1930.
Our home for the next 7 nights as we train-cruise through Southern Spain, visiting the cities of Seville, Cordoba, Segovia & Granada and discovering Spain’s distinct history, culture and cuisine on our all-inclusive tour.
