Traditional Tile Decoration Workshop

The azulejo, or tile, industry was born in Portugal in the 16th century.

It quickly gained popularity in architecture as the tiles were used to cover large structures, such as churches and royal estates.

As the industry grew and styles changed both in color and design, new decorative uses were found, with an emphasis on the preservation of artisan quality.

The people at the artisan’s workshop continue the work of their ancestors, making tiles by hand in a world where most things are made by machines and assembly lines. Your hosts will be delighted to help you discover the world of tile work by breathing life into an art that has inspired the Portuguese for centuries.

You will have the opportunity to paint your own tiles with traditional techniques explained by local artisans, learning the importance of time, care and endless dedication to the art.

Tour Of The Old Town - Weekends
The main topic of this walk is the last 2,500 years of the history of Lisbon. Its settlers have included the Phoenicians, who named it "calm bay;" the Romans, who were the first major settlers; and the Arabs, who shaped the old town alleys. Lisbon's climate and geography were tempting to all the peoples who landed here (and who, incidentally, are still here!).

In this walk, you will became acquainted with the Romans and the Moors, the Castle, and the Alfama community. Until the present day, the old quarter of Alfama, sitting on the hill facing the river, has had important links to maritime activities, from fishing to freight handling. Its population maintains a unique lifestyle and sense of community, conditioned by urban density and narrow streets. You will also get to know the Old Town's maze-like streets and hidden vantage points.

Elsa & Vanda from Lisbon:

"A great light lunch to explore Portuguese regional flavours.

Let's go for a trip around the country on the flavour side. Cheeses: from 'Serra da Estrela', luxurious and creamy to white strong flavoured and salty Alentejo small sheep cured ones. Along with ham and 'chorizos' and some nice fresh bread, fruits, olives, all the trimmings that make a Mediterranean party.

To help all that go down choose from a nice wine or a flavorful craft beer."

Exploring The 1755 Earthquake - Weekdays
The great earthquake of November 1, 1755, heavily damaged the southwestern Iberian Peninsula and northwestern Africa. It was one of the most destructive events in earth's history.

During this walk, you'll gain an awareness of the reconstruction of the city's downtown area, together with the great social and scientific impact generated by the disaster in Europe.

Learn about Portugal's painful beginning, in the 18th century, as a modern state, and the subsequent earthquake and rebirth of Lisbon: the dream of a new city come true. Following the earthquake, the city was rebuilt largely according to the plans of the Marquês de Pombal, who elected to demolish the remains of the earthquake and rebuild Lisbon's downtown in accordance with modern urban rules. You will also learn about the influence that the disaster had on European scientific and religious thinking, and the emergence of modern seismology, or the study of earthquakes.

The 7Th Hill Of Lisbon - Weekdays
The 7th hill of Lisbon was the last to be settled. It was, however, the first to be urbanized at the turn of the 15th century, following the realisation of serious studies. Wider streets and larger spaces for new palaces met the needs of an emerging bourgeoisie. The history of this beautiful hill is modern and cosmopolitan, enjoying greater prominence during the 19th century. You will learn about its role in the bohemian and literary life of the city.

Learn how Lisbon grew outside the walls in the 16th century, and all that followed from that: Mannerist and Baroque legacies, the São Pedro de Alcântara area, the city during the Romantic period, the golden age of newspapers, and bohemian life. Your guide will also tell you about the poet Fernando Pessoa, as well as the famous "A Brasileira" coffee shop (there is even a statue of Pessoa outside the cafe!) and the modernist generation.

A Taste of Portugal: Lisboa Petiscos Tour

Portugal, bite by bite

The Portuguese cousin of Spanish tapas, petiscos are small portions of different dishes, served at the center of the table so that each guest is free to choose when and what to eat. This custom is so important in Portuguese culture that they’ve even created a verb, “petiscare,” which means to nibble on small snacks with a glass of wine. Petiscos are meant to be simple and eaten with your hands, a toothpick or a slice of bread to sop up the sauces. On this tour you will hop from hidden taverns to trendy, locals-only bars in Lisboa with your local host, enjoying a unique opportunity to get acquainted with Portuguese traditional cuisine and lifestyle. Savoring the tastes and flavors of Portugal on the first evening is the perfect way to start your trip, so that you know what to order throughout your holiday!

Wine Tour Fit For Nobility
During this fascinating tour, you will be crossing the inspiring landscapes of historic Portugal, which will provide you with an interesting contrast between the great city left behind and the rural panorama that awaits. Not only will you be given the chance to absorb the peaceful scenes of the Portuguese countryside, but you will be traversing it as kings and queens once did. History shows that royals and artists once chose the traditional area of Mafra as a prime outlet for the expansion of Baroque expression in the area. You will see examples of this dramatically elegant style of art in the Convent and Palace of Mafra, while you close your eyes and imagine yourself living in the 18th century world of nobility.

After this first "royal" experience of the day, we'll continue into the even deeper countryside. Nestled in rolling green hills between the breathtakingly beautiful Atlantic coastline and the vibrant cultural life of Lisbon, we will finally reach our winery: the Quinta de Santana. Dating back to the 17th century, this beautiful estate was given by King Carlos I to one of his mistresses (for whom he also built a private theatre). Much later, the property was acquired by Baron von Furstenberg, whose daughter married an English man, and it's this couple (or their winemaker) that will invite you to discover the wonderful world of the Quinta de Santana. After an explanation about the property, you will be taken into the realm of the wine production and the vineyards on a private visit. During the wine tasting that will follow in the old wine cellar, you will have the opportunity to finally appreciate all of the tradition and time that have been put in to the winemaking.

Be sure to let yourself slide back in time so that you might be able to relive a slice of the history that surrounds you as you explore the gloriously genuine Portuguese countryside. Pure magic. And amazing wine. All in one day.

Sintra And The Estoril Coast - Group Trip
Enjoy your ride as your guide imparts his knowledge of the history and the land surrounding Lisbon as you make your way to Sintra. Sintra is a mix of natural and manmade beauty: fantasy castles set amid exotic tropical plants, lush green valleys, and craggy hilltops with hazy views of Lisbon and the Atlantic. Take a walk through the typical historical center, accompanied by your guide.

While you are there, pay a visit to the Pena National Palace, the most beautiful, romantic palace in Portugal (the Pena National Palace is closed on Mondays and will be substituted with the Sintra National Palace). The magical hilltop Pena Palace sits high above Sintra and was built in the 19th century by Prince Ferdinand. The Sintra Palace dates back to Moorish times, but most of what you see is from the 15th century. It is the oldest surviving palace in Portugal and is still used for official receptions.

Your journey continues to Cascais. Once just a small fishing village, this town managed to maintain its seafaring traditions while melding with the aristocratic and royal presences of the late 19th and early 20th century. Passing through its animated town center, you’ll find the cosmopolitan life side-by-side with the Atlantic.

From this area you'll also have a great view of the Estoril Casino and its gardens. Your guide will take you on a sightseeing tour along the coastal road of Estoril, one of the most beautiful and charming itineraries of all the Lisbon surroundings. On your way back, you will pass through Belém, a site that is home to several important historical monuments.

Half Day Lisbon Panoramic City Tour
This half-day tour allows you to discover Lisbon, capital of Portugal, colonized by many civilizations along the centuries: Phoenicians, Greeks, Carthaginians, Romans, Moors, and, finally, the Portuguese after 1147. Though your driver is not a licensed guide, you will get some limited information about the area you are touring.

Visit St. George Castle, including its surrounding quarter, and Alfama, Lisbon's oldest quarter. This city is linked with the heroic deeds of the Portuguese maritime exploration in the 15th and 16th centuries.

Part of the wealth from these expeditions was used to build magnificent monuments in a unique Portuguese style: the extravagant Manueline architectural style, best typified in Jerónimos Monastery. Some of these monuments can still be seen, especially in the area of Belém.

Lisbon has more than just monuments, however! You'll also visit the traditional commerce zones of the city (Downtown and the Chiado) with their 18th century buildings. In short, your tour includes all of the best that Lisbon has to show!

Half Day Guided Lisbon Jewish Tour
There was a time when the Jews of Lisbon were among the strongest and most concentrated Jewish communities on the globe. This was the turn of the 16th Century, when Portugal became the wealthiest nation in the world and Lisbon was at the center of it all. Making up one fourth of the city’s population, the Jews settled in Lisbon fleeing persecution in Spain, and for a time, they enjoyed peace and prosperity in Portugal’s capital. Known as the Jewish Golden Age in Portugal, the beginning of the 16th century saw Jews become advisors to Kings and Queens, geographers and doctors, explorers and mathematicians. This was a tentative prosperity, however, and the great achievements of Jews occurred alongside great violence.

As you retrace key sites of Jewish cultural life in Lisbon, this tour allows you to get a sense of both the towering feats of the Lisbon Jews and the huge hardships they faced. Your guide starts off your day by offering a general overview of the captivating history of the Jews of Lisbon. You’ll then take a short walk through the city center and make your way to the site of the 1506 Jewish Massacre near the Church of São Domingos. The next stop is a more lighthearted one. At the Castle of Saint George, a must-see in Lisbon, you’ll enjoy some of the finest panoramic views in the city. From here, your guide will escort you through Alfama, one of the best-preserved Jewish quarters on the Mediterranean. A labyrinthine district filled with dense alleyways and Lisbon’s signature red tile roofs, Alfama has been called the “soul of Lisbon.” You’ll then take a stroll through Commerce Square, where thousands of Jews were forced to be baptized in the 15th century. You’ll end on a more upbeat note, with a visit to the renowned Synagogue of Lisbon (Shaare Tikva).

Pre-Cruise Half Day Guided Lisbon Tour - Airport To Cruise Pier Or City Center Hotel
This half-day tour allows you to discover Lisbon, capital of Portugal, colonized by many civilizations along the centuries: Phoenicians, Greeks, Carthaginians, Romans, Moors, and, finally, the Portuguese after 1147.

Visit St. George Castle, including its surrounding quarter, and Alfama, Lisbon's oldest quarter. This city is linked with the heroic deeds of the Portuguese maritime exploration in the 15th and 16th centuries. This was the Age of Discoveries and the Golden Era of Portugal, transforming Lisbon into the opulent center of a vast empire. Part of the wealth from these expeditions was used to build magnificent monuments in a unique Portuguese style: the extravagant Manueline architectural style, best typified in Jerónimos Monastery. Some of these monuments can still be seen, especially in the area of Belém.

Lisbon has more than just monuments, however! You'll also visit the traditional commerce zones of the city (Downtown and the Chiado) with their 18th century buildings. In short, your tour includes all of the best that Lisbon has to show!

Panoramic Queluz, Sintra And The Estoril Coast
Your day begins with a scenic drive to Sintra. Sintra is a mix of natural and manmade beauty: fantasy castles set amid exotic tropical plants, lush green valleys, and craggy hilltops with hazy views of Lisbon and the Atlantic. It was the summer escape of the royalty and, as it is only 11 miles northwest of Lisbon, it was an easy trip for Lisbon's kings. Lord Byron called this spot a "glorious Eden."

Depending on which day you visit, you will see either the romantic Pena National Palace or the Sintra National Palace. The magical hilltop Pena Palace sits high above Sintra and was built in the 19th century by Prince Ferdinand. The Sintra Palace dates back to Moorish times, but most of what you see is from the 15th century. It is the oldest surviving palace in Portugal and is still used for official receptions. You may also visit the Palácio de Queluz, which is a monument.

Your journey continues to Cascais. Once just a small fishing village, this town managed to maintain its seafaring traditions while melding with the aristocratic and royal presences of the late 19th and early 20th century. Passing through its animated town center, you’ll find the cosmopolitan life side-by-side with the Atlantic. From this area you'll also have a great view of the Estoril Casino and its gardens. Enjoy a scenic drive along the coastal road of Estoril, one of the most beautiful and charming itineraries of all the Lisbon surroundings.

You have some flexibility with this day, so you can choose to visit a couple of other stops of your choice. Some suggestions are the Colares Wine-Cellar, the cellars of a precious wine in risk of extinction; or Quinta da Regaleira, built at the end of the 19th century, which is formed by a palace, a chapel, and gardens with grottos, wells, and subterranean areas. You may choose to spend some quality time on a terrace by the sea, in Cascais or in Guincho, watching the sunset. Another possibility is to spend the remaining time visiting the commercial area of Cascais. Your driver will help you determine which you would enjoy most.

Guided Lisbon Jewish Highlights
Historically, the Lisbon Jewish communities were essential to city life. Jewish people were advisers to kings and queens, doctors, and even some of the explorers, geographers, and mathematicians that transformed Portugal into the wealthiest nation in the world in the 16th century.

On this fascinating day, we'll start with a general introduction to the Jewish presence in the city, followed by a nice walk in the city center, including passing by the site of the 1506 Jewish Massacre near the Church of São Domingos.

The tour then proceeds to the Castle of Saint George (with the best panoramic view of the city) and from here we'll begin to walk down one of the most well preserved Jewish Quarters in Portugal--Alfama.

After lunch, we will continue with a visit to the only Synagogue of Lisbon (Shaare Tikvá), passing by the Commerce Square, where thousands of Jews were forced to be baptized in the 15th century.

Next, it's on to Belém to visit the Jerónimos Monastery, masterpiece of the Manueline style and a tribute to the king that welcomed and protected the Jews that fled from Spain and then expelled them in 1496.

There will be time for a last stop at the Monument to the Discoveries, where you will have the opportunity to see the faces of Jewish men that actively participated in the Portuguese Golden Age of the Discoveries.

Guided Lisbon, Sintra And The Estoril Coast
Your tour begins in Lisbon, where you will see the city's main sites, including St. George Castle (and its surrounding quarter) and Alfama, Lisbon's oldest quarter. You'll also pay a visit to the well-preserved 16th century Belem district, where you will find monuments related to the Portuguese Golden period, linked with the heroic deeds of the Portuguese maritime exploration in the 15th and 16th centuries. This was the Age of Discoveries and the Golden Era of Portugal, transforming Lisbon into the opulent center of a vast empire. Finally, make sure to check out the traditional commercial downtown, which was totally rebuilt in the 18th century following a huge earthquake.

Of course, it is said that any visitor to Lisbon must also visit the romantic town of Sintra, Portugal's ex-libris, classified by UNESCO as a World Heritage Site. Enjoy a scenic drive as your guide imparts his knowledge of the history and the land surrounding Lisbon as you make your way to Sintra. Sintra is a mix of natural and manmade beauty: fantasy castles set amid exotic tropical plants, lush green valleys, and craggy hilltops with hazy views of Lisbon and the Atlantic. Take a walk through the typical historical center, accompanied by your guide.

While you are there, pay a visit to the Pena National Palace, the most beautiful, romantic palace in Portugal (the Pena National Palace is closed on Mondays and will be substituted with the Sintra National Palace). The magical hilltop Pena Palace sits high above Sintra and was built in the 19th century by Prince Ferdinand. The Sintra Palace dates back to Moorish times, but most of what you see is from the 15th century. It is the oldest surviving palace in Portugal and is still used for official receptions.

Your journey continues to Cascais. Once just a small fishing village, this town managed to maintain its seafaring traditions while melding with the aristocratic and royal presences of the late 19th and early 20th century. Passing through its animated town center, you’ll find the cosmopolitan life side-by-side with the Atlantic.

From this area you'll also have a great view of the Estoril Casino and its gardens. Your guide will take you on a sightseeing tour along the coastal road of Estoril, one of the most beautiful and charming itineraries of all the Lisbon surroundings.

Guided Tour Of Enchanting Évora And Arraiolos
After leaving Lisbon, you will be driven to Évora through the countryside roads of Alentejo for a beautiful sightseeing tour by car. In Évora, you will have ample time to walk through its historical center and “feel” the atmosphere of this town. Due to preservation awareness, little has changed in Évora over the centuries. You will visit its famous Roman Temple and its Cathedral from the 12th century, and also get the chance to take in the architectural splendor of the town's historic university, founded in the 16th century.

A contemporary handicraft studio is also on the agenda while in Évora, where you will be able to experience a local artist's haven.

After lunch, you will leave enchanting Évora and move on to quaint Arraiolos. This is where you will experience the typical Alentejo village with its white immaculate houses and looming castle that watches over the fields from above. Meanwhile, the people of the village practice their slow, peaceful pace of living. If there is an "art of living" it can be found in little Arraiolos.

After this immersion into genuine historic Portugal, back to the city you go.

Guided Queluz, Sintra And The Estoril Coast
Enjoy your ride as your guide imparts his knowledge of the history and the land surrounding Lisbon as you make your way to Sintra. Sintra is a mix of natural and manmade beauty: fantasy castles set amid exotic tropical plants, lush green valleys, and craggy hilltops with hazy views of Lisbon and the Atlantic. It was the summer escape of the royalty and, as it is only 11 miles northwest of Lisbon, it was an easy trip for Lisbon's kings. Lord Byron called this spot a "glorious Eden."

Depending on which day you visit, you will see either the romantic Pena National Palace or the Sintra National Palace. The magical hilltop Pena Palace sits high above Sintra and was built in the 19th century by Prince Ferdinand. The Sintra Palace dates back to Moorish times, but most of what you see is from the 15th century. It is the oldest surviving palace in Portugal and is still used for official receptions. You may also visit the Palácio de Queluz, which is a monument.

Your journey continues to Cascais. Once just a small fishing village, this town managed to maintain its seafaring traditions while melding with the aristocratic and royal presences of the late 19th and early 20th century. Passing through its animated town center, you’ll find the cosmopolitan life side-by-side with the Atlantic. From this area you'll also have a great view of the Estoril Casino and its gardens. Your guide will take you on a sightseeing tour along the coastal road of Estoril, one of the most beautiful and charming itineraries of all the Lisbon surroundings.

You have some flexibility with this day, so you can choose to visit a couple of other stops of your choice. Some suggestions are the Colares Wine-Cellar, the cellars of a precious wine in risk of extinction; or Quinta da Regaleira, built at the end of the 19th century, which is formed by a palace, a chapel, and gardens with grottos, wells, and subterranean areas. You may choose to spend some quality time on a terrace by the sea, in Cascais or in Guincho, watching the sunset. Another possibility is to spend the remaining time visiting the commercial area of Cascais. Your guide will help you determine which you would enjoy most.
