Why choose this experience

This trip will show you the best of two worlds: City and Nature. Venture on a cultural, gastronomic and wine experience in the Lisbon area and then relax in the stunning Madeira Island.


Lisbon is perfect for history, gastronomy and architecture aficionados.


Crowned by the castle of São Jorge (Saint George), Portugal's capital - and Europe's second oldest capital - is a city filled with hills, beautiful views, unique neighbourhoods, quaint shops and historic monuments.


The tour begins with a half-day tour of Lisbon's main sights and then leaves you free to explore the city independently, either on foot or by public transport. In the evening, you will attend a Fado show and have dinner at a typical and renowned restaurant in Bairro Alto.


This package also includes a full day excursion to Sintra and Cascais and another to Evora.


Next, you will fly to Madeira, the island of Eternal Spring. Besides the breathtaking views, Funchal's famous cuisine and relaxing walks, for the more adventurous and energetic, the opportunities are endless with plenty to choose from: levada walks, mountain walks, sailing, dolphin and whale watching, diving and much more.


In Madeira you will find wonderful parks and gardens with exotic flowers, seascapes with blue ocean, towering cliffs, rustic villages in quiet valleys, really good views and rugged mountains whose peaks are higher than Scotland's - we'll show you all the best places to go!


Venture out on this wonderful tour and experience the best of both worlds.
