We will settle into our Lisbon 4 star accommodations for the first few days, meander along the beautiful mosaic sidewalks and enjoy food and wine tastings. Day trips will include the magical town of Sintra, with its mystical palaces and exotic parks, where you are sure to feel as if you have stepped into a fairy tale. No trip to Portugal is complete until you view the cliffs at Cabo da Roca, the most western point of continental Europe with breathtaking vistas of the Atlantic.
When the Moors invaded the land that now belongs to Portugal they brought with them the tradition of azulejo tiles. Your hands will work on an unforgettable souvenir as you create your own azulejo unique masterpiece.
Our adventure continues through the breathtaking scenery of southwest Spain finding our way to Seville. The Andalusian capital exudes joy and bustle in every street and square with its rich Arab legacy.
Located at the foot of the Sierra Nevada’s mountains is the city of Granada. The last city taken by the Muslims in 1492 and the Andalusian charm is unparalleled. Granada’s Alhambra is the most renowned building of the Islamic historical legacy and has been chosen as one of the 7 wonders of the world.
Making our way through western Spain we visit Toledo, known as the “city of the three cultures”, because Christians, Arabs and Jews lived there for centuries. Behind its walls Toledo preserves an artistic and cultural legacy in the form of churches, palaces, fortresses, mosques and synagogues.
We wrap up our adventure in beautiful Madrid with plenty of quality time for shopping, museums and street level engagement.

What others have to say about our trips – With Bonnie and Ken we all were well taken care in countless ways, from food concerns to misplaced train tickets. We enjoyed a superior sensory, intellectual, and emotional experience. My feet are still floating above the ground. Thank you Bonnie and Ken for another life treat. — Camy
