Begin in Fez, the intellectual and religious heart of the nation. Stay at an exclusive luxury hotel and explore the best of the city with your own private guide. Tour Fez el-Bali (“Fez the Old”) and its medieval medina (old town), a UNESCO World Heritage Site crammed with narrow, winding streets, tiny squares and artisan workshops. Visit centuries-old mosques and universities, see the multi-colored vats of the open-air tanneries and shop for traditional wares made from copper, ceramics and leather. Also visit Fez el-Djedid (“Fez the New”), built in the 13th century. Visit the Royal Palace and the mellah (Jewish Quarter), the largest in Morocco.

Next, spend two nights in the High Atlas Mountains at Kasbah Tamadot, one of Morocco’s most acclaimed luxury retreats best known for its traditional Moroccan design and stunning infinity pool overlooking the spectacular mountain views. While there, enjoy private visits to local villages and Berber markets.

Continue to Marrakesh, an ancient city of weathered pink buildings and orange groves at the base of the Atlas Mountains. Stay at the legendary La Mamounia or the exclusive Amanjena, a Moorish-style resort of gardens and reflection pools. During private touring, see the Djemaa el-Fna, a carnivalesque public square where water sellers, snake charmers, magicians and storytellers compete for an audience. Also see the Jardin Majorelle, stunning gardens created by French painter Jacques Majorelle in the 1920s; the Palais de la Bahia; the Dar Si Said Museum of Moroccan Arts; the Palmerie; and the beautiful Jardin Menara, with its reflecting pools surrounded by a large grove of olive trees. Browse the city’s most stylish shops and galleries, and dine at the finest restaurants.

Fly to Lisbon, Portugal's vibrant capital on the Tagus River, to explore its rich culture, beautiful cityscapes and excellent food and wine. Experience the city as an insider during private touring with an expert local guide. Tour the historic Alfama district, the sophisticated Bairro Alto and Lapa districts and the riverside Belem district. See St. George’s Castle, Mosteiro dos Jeronimos monastery, Belem Tower and other impressive monuments of Moorish and Manueline architecture. Browse select shops offering Portuguese specialties such as azulejo tiles, embroidered linens, Indo-Portuguese furniture, gold jewelry, Portuguese design products and antiques. Sample local food specialties such as pasteis de nata custard tarts. Also tour museums according to your interests, including options such as the National Tile Museum, the Calouste Gulbenkian Museum, the National Coach Museum and the Museum of Folk Art. Other touring options include the botanical gardens, miradouros (viewing points) in the hills around the city and a private appointment to visit the Ricardo do Spirito Santo Silva Foundation, which is dedicated to the preservation and reproduction of traditional Portuguese design and decorative art. One evening, enjoy a memorable fado music performance at a local club. Upon request, Artisans of Leisure can arrange dinner reservations at Lisbon's best restaurants.

One day, enjoy a private excursion to Sintra, an aristocratic town of fairy-tale palaces and gardens among forested hills. During private touring in this UNESCO World Heritage Site, visit the romantic National Palace of Pena, the spectacular National Palace of Sintra and the narrow streets in the historic center of the town, including the former Jewish quarter. Another option is visiting Quinta da Regaleira, a villa and park. If desired, Artisans of Leisure can make lunch reservations at a wonderful restaurant in the seaside town of Cascais.

End in Porto, the capital of Port wine and a city with a fascinating mix of architectural styles, including Roman, medieval, Baroque and contemporary. Stay in a luxurious hotel on a hillside overlooking wine cellars and the Douro River. During private touring, explore the historic center, a UNESCO World Heritage Site. See highlights such as the Palacio da Bolsa (Stock Exchange), the Se do Porto (Porto Cathedral) and the Livraria Lello, a historic bookstore with ornate woodwork.
