(7 Days - Departs Daily on a Private Basis) Madeira, Lisbon, Sintra
This tour is perfect for anyone seeking a luxurious, leisurely, and culturally-rich getaway.
Begin on beautiful Madeira, a volcanic island off the coast of Africa blessed with year-round balmy weather. Spend three nights at an exclusive seaside resort surrounded by lush gardens. With your own private guide, explore Funchal’s local markets, wineries, gardens and other highlights. One day, enjoy a private four-wheel drive excursion into the heart of the island. Explore the dramatic natural landscapes and rugged coastline, and visit picturesque fishing villages and farming hamlets in the mountains. Opt to hike along Madeira’s network of levada (irrigation canal) trails, or swim in natural rock pools on the northern coast. Upon request, Artisans of Leisure also arranges private yacht charters, fishing excursions, in-depth garden tours and private cooking lessons. Also enjoy plenty of time to relax by the pool at the resort.
Continue to Lisbon for several days to enjoy its culture, rich history, beautiful cityscapes and excellent food and wine. Experience the city like an insider during in-depth private touring. Visit the city’s highlights—monuments of beautiful Moorish architecture, the old Alfama district, the sophisticated Bairro Alto and Lapa districts, important museums in Belem and elsewhere, select specialty shops (gold, tiles, antiques, linens, needlepoint rugs, Indo-Portuguese furniture) and more. Reservations will be made at the city’s best restaurants each night. Also enjoy a memorable fado performance at a local club.
One day, take a wonderful private excursion to the lovely aristocratic town of Sintra to see the spectacular castles, manors, gardens, and backstreets that feature Portuguese design, architecture and history at its finest.
