Day 1: Porto

Our first stop on this adventure is Porto. Portugal’s second largest metropolis and one of Europe’s most charismatic cities. Porto is a beautiful and historically-rich city, brimming with medieval relics, extravagant churches, and impressive architecture. The famous port wine won’t be the only thing you remember it for. We will see it all through our official tour of the city.

After our tour we will check-in to our hostel and you will be free to enjoy the afternoon in Porto as you wish. At night you can join our amazing pub crawl tour too (not included).

Day 2: Porto & Guimarães

We will start the day with a complimentary breakfast at the hostel. Everyone will have two plans to choose from for their day. You can either choose to explore the city of Porto at your own pace for the whole day, or you can join our optional morning excursion to Guimarães (included in the package, no extra cost) for those interested in discovering an other city.

Estimated time of our excursion to Guimarães: 5 hours (1 hour to get there, 3 hours free time, 1 hour to come back).

Day 3: Lisbon

After enjoying a complimentary breakfast, we’ll make our way towards our next location: Lisbon! The capital offers all the delights you’d expect of Portugal’s star attraction. Yet, with half the fuss of other European capitals. You will have some free time for lunch before going on an official guided tour. The tour will walk us through the city to see the quaint museums, gothic cathedrals and majestic monasteries. Even though these sights are true beauties, the real delights of discovery lie in wandering the narrow lanes of Lisbon’s lovely backstreets! After the tour, those who want to explore more can use their free time to catch a ride on one of the typical yellow trams, and visit the music-filled Barrio Alto.

After our first day in Lisbon you will be free to enjoy the evening at your own pace.

Day 4: Lisbon & Sintra

On our third day we will enjoy yet another complimentary breakfast. Those who want to explore more can use their free time to head to the small, magical town of Sintra with us. The town is home to two spectacular castles and a rich history behind them both. Spend your day exploring the cobbled streets, charming cafes and delicious Portuguese cuisine. This day trip is included in our package, but is optional if you prefer to spend more time in Lisbon.

Estimated time of our excursion to Sintra: 6 hours (30 minutes to get there, 5 hours free time, 30 minutes to come back).

Day 5: Lisbon, Belem & Back to Madrid

After finishing breakfast at our hostel we will start our way back to Madrid stopping at Belém, home of the famous “pasteis de nata”. These egg tart pastries date back over 300 years to Belém, located west of Lisbon. They were created by monks in the Jerónimos Monastery, and are now a sought out dessert by visitors and locals alike. After that we will cross the “25 de Abril” bridge to enjoy the amazing view from the Cristo Rei. After those last pictures taken, we will head to Madrid.
