Tours represent one of the best ways to visit a country, a city or do something you have always wanted to. There is a lot to do in Portugal and choosing among different activities can sometimes prove rather difficult.
City tours are the best ways to explore as much as you can in a city on limited time. Such day tours are available in pretty much every important Portuguese city, such as Lisbon, Sintra, Patima, Porto, Minho or Fatima.
A full day city tour in Fatima costs €84 per person and includes lunch and entrance to the sights.
A five hours Lisbon tour costs €33 per person and includes entrance to sights.
The Lisbon River Cruise is another interesting way to enjoy the city. It’s a half day tour which costs €29 per person.
If you want to explore Lisbon by night, take the respective tour. Dinner and two drinks are included in the cost of €64 per person.
Portugal is famous for its wine and cuisine; experience both of them by taking the Wine and Gastronomy Tour. The tour lasts for 6 days and costs between €1250 and €1550 per person, includes wine tasting, city tours and accommodation but doesn’t include airfare.
If you are interested in how the corks are made, you can tour the The English Cork Factory Museum and even a cork factory.
Fatima is a really important destination for the Christians. A two day tour to Fatima includes visiting the sanctuary as well as the house of one of the shepherds. The tour runs between April and October and costs €112 euro/person (accommodation in double room and half board).
If you want to explore more of a particular region, you can take a very nice tour comprising the North, South or Center of Portugal. Each such tour is based on exploring the beauty of the countryside, the towns’ history and many more. A 7 day tour exploring the North of Portugal costs, during the summer season (April to October) between €830 and €1150/person. The tour exploring the South of Portugal costs slightly less (€740 to €870/person during the summer season for 5 days), while 3 days in the Center of Portugal costs between €390 and €460/person.
Walking and bicycle tours are also very popular among those tourists who prefer an active vacation. There are city walking tours, as well hiking tours in the countryside.
Most often you will find tours which combine important sights from Portugal and Spain. Such tours last between 15 and 22 days.
