Global Morning News – Guided Bus Tour through Portugal

Posted on: May 9, 2023

This week we are going to talk about guided tours – in coaches.

This has changed so much over the years. It is no longer a case of 60 people on a bus and if this is Tuesday this must be Berlin! Tours are smaller, more immersive and more relaxed.

No-one has done this better than Globus Journeys. They have a whole host of tours to choose from that give you the amount of free time and flexibility – plus small groups – that you are looking for.

So what has been popular this year? One of the hot spots is Portugal. A small country with a big heart. And there are two amazing itineraries that I picked out that I just love.

Rocks and Rhythm: Portugal by Design

It starts and ends in Lisbon but takes you some unique areas in the north of the country.

Sparkling wine or soulful Fado? Portuguese pastries or pastel plazas? Spend a day retracing the Knights Templar or your nights reveling in foodie traditions. With complimentary YourChoice Excursions, you choose how to sip or sway in this land of poets, painters, and pastries. This 8-day vacation through Portugal is pure poetry in motion

As well as YourChoice Excursions you get daily breakfast, 1 lunch and 3 dinners.

Portugal in Depth

This rejuvenating tour of Portugal leads you past rolling olive farms, through scenic cork groves, and down winding Moorish alleyways to the country’s signature delights. In its coastal villages and medieval towns, grilled seafood fills the tables, sweet port fills the glasses, and the soulful sounds of fado music fill the air. From the granules of golden sand to the rich nuggets of history, this enlightening tour of Portugal introduces you to the brightest sights of the country as you make a loop from lively Lisbon and back.

This gorgeous itinerary takes you up as far north as Guimaraes and as far south as the Algarve and everything in between. Daily breakfast and 5 dinners.

Duration: 10 Nights
