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.

Next, fly to the city of Porto, the capital of port wine and a fascinating mix of Baroque and modern art and architecture. Enjoy a private tour of the city’s narrow streets in the UNESCO-listed historical sector and see the city's highlights. One day, take a private excursion to the Douro Valley. There, visit the best local wineries, explore romantic ancient towns along the Douro river, take an exclusive private river cruise, and enjoy the beautiful terraced landscapes.

Finally, transfer to Lisbon to enjoy its culture, rich history, beautiful cityscapes and excellent food and wine. En route, stop to visit the whitewashed village of Obidos or the monasteries at Batalha and Alcobaca. Experience Lisbon 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. Spend another day exploring the highlights of the rural Alentejo region, known for its olive oil, wine, cheese, and cork production. Taste wines at one of the leading estates in the area, and enjoy a private olive oil tasting and gourmet lunch of local specialties. Also, tour fascinating Evora, a former royal town and a UNESCO World Heritage Site. Explore the narrow streets lined with whitewashed houses and see the ancient Roman ruins and Moorish architecture.
