Set sail from Liverpool and spend two days in Lisbon kicking off this authentic Portuguese discovery, there will be rich maritime history and delicious pastries to discover during the day, complemented perhaps by a Fado music performance as night falls.  All before Portimao and Oporto – on a tour from Leixoes – showcase wine cellars, sumptuous landscapes and more.

 

An overnight stay allows time to really make the most of the region, enjoy authentic culture with a performance of Fado music or venture further afield to pretty Obidos or Sintra.  Black Watch will call into Leixoes to round of the itinerary, here you are well placed to take tours to Oporto a designated UNESCO World Heritage Site.
