Within continental Europe’s westernmost nation is everything the adventurous traveler could want. From the 1500’s to 1975 this little maritime powerhouse created a global empire including its’ own colonies and a number of places where the Portuguese imprint is visible to this day. Like the British Empire, that of Portugal was one upon which the sun never set.

On the Culinary and Cultural Tour of Portugal, we’ll explore castles, museums, churches, the World Heritage city of Porto, a National Park and Lisbon, the heart of it all. Over the course of 13 unforgettable days you’ll see and stay in palaces, historic hotels and fishing villages. You’ll hear Fado music in exciting settings and visit and shop in food and flea markets.

And speaking of the food! No one puts together a culinary outing like The Chef at Large. Authentic regional dishes, seafood, and pastries and wine! Most meals are served family style so you’ll get to experience a wide variety of non-tourist menus and foods included in the cost of the tour.
