This tour is perfect for anyone seeking a luxurious, leisurely, and culturally-rich getaway.

Begin on beautiful Madeira, a volcanic island off the coast of Africa with year-round balmy weather. Stay at an exclusive resort surrounded by lush gardens. During private touring, explore Funchal’s local markets, wineries, gardens, embroidery studios and other highlights. One day, enjoy a private four-wheel drive excursion into the heart of the island. Explore the dramatic natural landscapes and rugged coastline, and visit picturesque fishing villages and farming hamlets in the mountains. If desired, opt to hike along Madeira’s network of levada (irrigation canal) trails, or swim in natural rock pools on the northern coast. Another day, enjoy a private yacht charter to explore Madeira’s beautiful coastline and beaches. Upon request, Artisans of Leisure can also arrange fishing excursions, in-depth garden tours and private cooking lessons. Also enjoy plenty of time to relax at the resort.

Next, continue to Lisbon and 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. Upon request, Artisans of Leisure can arrange dinner reservations at Lisbon's best restaurants or a memorable fado music performance at a local club.

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.
