Let Us Plan Your Travel to Spain and Portugal

Spain and Portugal present an ideal, closely linked set of destinations for a tour across southern Europe. Here you’ll discover a fragmented history of cultures spanning millennia, presented in a beguiling mishmash of stunning cultural sites: from Christian cathedrals and Moorish, fortresses to picture-perfect white sand beaches, and fantastic World Heritage Sites, each as unique as they are beautiful.

Begin in Spain’s Capital to see the grandiose royal palaces, splendid museums highlighting Spanish artists and collectors (Museo Sorolla, Lázaro Galdiano, etc), and the Temple of Debod: An Ancient Egyptian Temple restored to its former glory in La Montaña Park. Trace Barcelona’s artistic heritage in Gaudi’s outlandish designs and follow the cobbles of the Gothic Quarter to find chic bars, clubs, and local-loved Catalan restaurants.

Arriving in Portugal, things slow down considerably, with a greater charm and slower pace of life found in Porto, with slender houses painted in pastels and piled along the banks of the Duoro River. Explore, eat a plate of local Francesinha in a cafe, and visit the Livraria Lello bookshop — often called the world’s most beautiful bookshop. Board an iconic yellow tram to adventure around Lisbon’s 7 hills, taking in the traditional atmosphere at Alfama on São Vicente Hill before watching the sun set over Portugal from Santa Catarina Hill.

As a true foodie and culture vulture at heart, Spain, Portugal and Turkey are special destinations to me. I love creating unique itineraries which combine food, wine, culture, and really immersive experiences which I’m passionate about.

Where to Go


When to Go

Alhambra, Granada

Both Spain and Portugal have excessively hot summers (sometimes reaching as high as 100°F), particularly in central Spain and across Portugal’s Douro Valley, and they fill up with European travelers throughout the Summer holidays, making them less than ideal for anything more than beach vacations.

Spring is arguably the best time for a tour across Spain and Portugal, with temperatures rarely higher than 70°F and spring blooms coloring the countryside and towns of both countries. But autumns can be just as pleasant, but with some chance of rain and wind, particularly in the more mountainous areas of northern Portugal and the northern tip of Spain.
