You want to go there, but why? It's a question we ask every time we set up a new Untour.
We track trends and have watched Portugal’s popularity rise in the last few years. We’ve seen Douro river cruises sell out and fielded calls from people looking for a Portugal Untour.
Portugal is an amazing place, full of antiquity and castles, palaces and pilgrimage sites, dramatic scenery and old world charm. It is a country of terraced vineyards, atmospheric trolley-laced cities, and medieval towns where kings and explorers have left their mark.
But why do you want to go there? What are you looking for? This was critical to understand so that we could create a package that answered your desires.
To that end, we chose two locations, Porto in the north and Sintra in central Portugal. A week in each place offers a well rounded experience of Portugal. Our home towns are chosen for their charm and easy access to all the treasures of their region, and both allow for exploration by rail or car. As home towns, each has a deep sense of history, character, and natural beauty.
Here are several more reasons why you might want to Untour in Portugal.
