What our travelers say about their trips to Portugal

Go on Go Ahead
By 8th-time traveler Cheryl on 11/12/2018
The Portugal Wine and Food tour was super. Just the right blend of tour time and on your own time if so desired. Wine flowed; food was great; tour director was knowledgeable and full of surprises. Hotels for the most part were exceptional.

Travel tips for trips to Portugal

When to visit Portugal

If you’re considering one of our guided tours of Portugal, you’ll notice that departures are available throughout the year. That’s because it’s an excellent destination to travel to in any month—and the best time to visit depends on your preferences.

Bordering Spain on the Iberian Peninsula, Portugal lies in the southwestern part of Europe. It has some of the warmest year-round temperatures on the continent, experiencing hot summers and wet winters. Conditions vary from the coast to inland regions like the Douro River Valley.

In the capital city of Lisbon, which you can visit on our Portugal tour packages, the average temperature in January is 53°F. During July, the average rises to 73°F and sunny weather is quite common.

Where to go in Portugal

The good news when planning a trip to Portugal? Its small size makes it relatively easy to cover during one trip. Must-visit spots along the coast include the stunning Algarve region, Lisbon, and Porto, while the appeals more inland include the Douro Valley, Évora, and the Alentejo region.

You can often pair Portugal with another destination or two if you have some more time to spare. Here are some of our Portugal tours that may fit your interests:

Dining tips for Portugal

While traveling on one of our guided trips to Portugal, you’ll have the opportunity to savor delicious food that may be brand-new to you. Traditional cuisine here is fresh and tasty. Salted cod, called bacelhau, is one of the most popular ingredients on the menu and can be mixed with everything from eggs to potatoes. In addition to seafood, some notable dishes to try are piri piri chicken and pastéis de nata, a famous custard tart.

While on Portugal escorted tours, you can also sip some local specialties. Porto’s famous Port wine gets its sweet signature flavor from the grapes of the UNESCO-listed Douro Valley. Seek out aromatic white wines in the Alentejo region, and fruity, fortified Moscatel de Setúbal wine in the Setúbal region.

Packing tips for Portugal

Packing light is the recommendation for our Portugal guided tours—or any vacation, for that matter! While you’re on-the-go, you should feel comfortable managing your baggage. One suitcase and one carry-on bag per person is a good guideline to keep in mind when prepping for your trip.

Bring along lightweight clothes that can be easily layered, so you're prepared for any type of weather. A comfortable pair of shoes that you can easily walk in, sunglasses, sunscreen, and a light jacket are all key items to pack too. Once you’ve booked a Portugal tour, we’ll send you even more information about getting ready to go—and you can also download our mobile app for a detailed packing list.
