About this trip

Vibrant cities, majestic UNESCO palaces and cathedrals, fortified medieval towns, cobblestone streets, the stunning Douro estuary, wild seascapes, sweeping hillsides covered in olive trees and fragrant pines are just some of the pleasures of Portugal. Highlights include Lisbon’s architectural wonders, and Sintra, a scenic city perched on a spectacular hillside, offering panoramic views of the Atlantic coast. Visit the Royal Palace, Coimbra’s ancient university and the walled city of Obidos. Discover the “Portuguese Riviera,” and experience Fatima, where three children saw an apparition of the Virgin Mary, making it one of the most important Catholic pilgrimage sites in the world. Unveil the city of Porto located on the Douro, “the river of gold,” and go shopping on its tangled lanes or relax in a cozy café in this undiscovered valley.

Day 1
Depart for Lisbon, Portugal

Arrive at JFK International Airport and check in for your overnight flight to Lisbon. Legend claims that Lisbon’s name has derived either from Allis Ubbo, meaning “safe harbor” in Phoenician, or from the pre-Roman name of the River Tagus, Lisso. It ranks as the world’s tenth oldest city that traces its roots back to the Phoenician Civilization, which settled it more than three millennia ago making this destination culturally and historically fascinating.

On a scale of 1-10, the trip was a 15!!! I can't stop raving about everything: our guide, the food, the accomodations, and, of course the attractions. I would tell everyone to put Iceland on their bucket list, and to go through Tours of Distinction. Thank you so much for making this a trip of a lifetime for me.

I cannot say enough about my first trip with Tours of Distinction! Our tour guide, Lorraine, our tour director, Julie, our bus diver, Nick were beyond awesome! They were very accommodating and always at our beck and call! They were very personable, helpful and fun! Every minute was filled with eating great food, enjoying fun entertainment, meeting new beautiful people, visiting new places, enjoying pleasant rides across many breathtaking areas of the western part of our country while listening to the history of that area, and then resting comfortably in extremely nice accommodations every night! I will be taking another trip with this company! 🤠

We enjoyed this trip to Saratoga very much. The horse races were exciting and of course the transportation from place to place was always convenient. We did feel a bit rushed on our morning after breakfast, the free time in town could have been shortened and more time allowed before checkout at the Inn. The ship on Lake George was very big and service suffered a bit because of the number of passengers. Overall a recommended trip.
