This is a very special itinerary since it was born out of the agreement between Tours For You and the prestigious included Hotels of the program. The goal was to create a program that would set a positive example and prove that the good cooperation between these Portuguese companies could create an itinerary that would be able to show all the magnificent "little corners" of our country, always staying in properties managed by Portuguese groups only ("Lágrimas" Group, "Aquapura", "Heritage" and "Memmo"). Besides this for an even more pleasant itinerary, our guests will be able to benefit from many special amenities offered by the Hotels specifically created for this program. Bearing in mind a few minimum nights of stay and conditions we may also adjust this program to your needs may it now be completely suitable to your travelling plans.

Porto is at the same time the name of a city and a fortified wine, one of the most famous in the world, aged at the wine cellars of Vila Nova de Gaia, next to the Douro River. Its historical center has been declared a World Heritage Site by UNESCO and preserves many beautiful monuments, namely from the Baroque period which is contemporary to the glory and wealth achieved with the trade of Port Wine. You shall not miss a visit to the Cathedral (Sé), the Church of Saint Francis and the Clérigos Tower.

Guimarães is the cradle of Portugal as this is where our first king, Afonso Henriques, was born and where he began the nation.

Ponte de Lima is located at the banks of the Lima River. It's considered the most ancient village in Portugal, for having been given charter in 1125 by the mother of our first king.

We advise you to visit one of the wineries in the region and taking a river cruise.

Coimbra is the city of the students because it was here that the first university in Portugal was created, nowadays the oldest and one of the most important in the country.

From the magnificent white sandy beaches to the rocky coastline and steep cliffs, Algarve is diverse with gorgeous coastal landscapes. Nightlife and animation is something that you can enjoy in this region too. This region is the most famous place in Portugal to play golf, having numerous fields of worldwide renowned quality.

Lisbon, capital of Portugal, located at the mouth of the Tagus River and from where the Portuguese boats set sail overseas in the 15th and 16th centuries towards East.
