Trip Info

Sample rare wines, including one thought to be extinct at a selection of wineries, and hear the local history along the way.

WHAT TO EXPECT
Following a pick-up from your hotel or the cruise ship terminal in Lisbon, drive to Cheleiros, and leave the city behind for a scenic landscape of grape vines and farm fields. Discover an old parish that dates back to the 14th century. Hear about some of the prehistoric communities and past civilizations that used to live in this village. Then, taste some of the regional wines, such as those produced by the small producer, ManzWines.

In order to restore wine activity to the region, the ManzWines family use traditional Portuguese grape varieties, such as the unique Jampal grapes that produce a white wine thought to be extinct. Taste 6 different wines from regions that range from Lisbon to the Douro and Península de Setúbal, and sample local olive oils and traditional bread along the way.

Continue to the Quinta da Murta in Bucelas, to discover the “Prince of Portuguese Wine.” Savor the famous dry white wine produced from the Arinto grape, 1st introduced to the region by the Romans over 2,000 years ago. For many centuries, it was the only white wine produced in Portugal. Taste 3 different wines from this region as you hear how the Portuguese sailors of Vasco de Gama’s flagship “São Gabriel” enjoyed a great Bucelas wine following their return to Lisbon after discovering the trade routes to India.

Take advantage of this private tour visiting historic sites, strolling the vineyards or just soaking up the country charm of Portugal’s rural towns. Finish the day with return transfer to your Lisbon hotel or port.

    As on TripAdvisor: “Private tour” After a few days in Madeira we left for Lisbon. We arrived at Lisbon Airport and were greeted by Joao Dickman from Takinguthere. We had selected Joao for many intangible reasons. College degree in tourism, born and raised in Portugal, lived and traveled the country extensively, owner of the company, and personal conversations. Of course excellent recommendations that all were verified and reverified. Our itinerary consisted of Cascais, Sintra, Porto, Peso Da Ragua, Evora, Praia da Rocha-Portimao, Cadiz, and finally Lisbon. Joao was responsible for selecting all attractions in the cities and well as stops between cities. He also supplied many of the restaurant recommendations. We left our timetable open to making changes along the way as well as arrival and departure times from hotels. Another words Joao was responsible for everything but hotel selection. I will be providing a complete trip report separately. After the first day or two the three of us felt like family, while still maintaining the professional relationship between the two of us. Joao quickly learned our dislikes and likes. He also learned the little things that make us happy or not. We started each day with our overall wish list. Based upon his experience he confirmed or recommended otherwise. At first we were reluctant. But soon learned to take his “highly, highly recommend its.” Some were TripAdvisor recommendations some not even on their list at all, including a deserted chapel by the sea outside of Lisbon. Our time sightseeing was ours, never rushed or made to feel that way. Joao joined us for many of our meals but only at our insistence. His company was welcomed for warm conversation as well as menu and wine selections. Travel between cities were just as much part of the tours as the major cities were. His routing and knowledge enabled us to see many sites and experience many culinary ventures that we never had any thoughts of while traveling between cities. His knowledge was extensive. We never felt like we were back in school but learned personal facts about sites that are normally not written in the tour books. His experience enabled us to by pass many lines and routing maximized our overall sightseeing time. Always surprising us with new and interesting things never forgetting the little details. His philosophy of nothing is impossible, no request too small made our holiday one of the best we have ever experienced. His love for Portugal stood out in every attraction, restaurant, and mile traveled. Joao is the main reason we will be coming back to Portugal and will be traveling to Morocco with Joao and Takinguthere
