Portugal and Spain - A Tale of Two Cultures

Sunset over the beautiful city of Porto, Portugal

Escorted Group Tours

On our 14-day cultural tour of Portugal and Spain, we'll journey from Porto to Barcelona, discovering how history, religion, cuisine, art, and music have shaped these countries into what they are today. In Portugal, we'll try its famous port and cruise on the Douro River. Marvel at Moorish, baroque, and Gothic churches and, of course, indulge in some delicious pasteis de nata (sweet custard tarts). In Spain, we'll explore Roman ruins, castles, and medieval fortresses. Admire some of the world's most incredible art, including iconic monuments designed by Gaudí - and indulge in some tasty tapas.
