This private tour features rounds of golf at Portugal's most beautiful golf courses, private touring of the country's cultural and scenic highlights, and accommodation at the top hotels and resorts in each destination.

Begin in Lisbon with a tour of 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 or the Calouste Gulbenkian Museum. Other touring options include vibrant food markets, a tour of a historic tile factory, visits to beautiful gardens, stops at scenic viewpoints overlooking 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.

Enjoy a private excursion to Cascais to play a round of golf at Oitavos Dunes. This iconic course was built around the natural sand dunes and umbrella pines of the coast and has panoramic views of the mountains and ocean.

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.

Next, visit the rural Alentejo region, known for its olive oil, wine, cheese and cork production. During a private tour of fascinating Evora, a beautiful city and UNESCO World Heritage Site, walk narrow streets lined with whitewashed houses, and see ancient Roman ruins and Moorish architecture. Also explore the historic Jewish quarter, and tour the city's Chapel of Bones. A lunch reservation will be made at one of the leading wine estates in the area.

Continue to the Algarve, Portugal's sunny southern coast, and stay at an exclusive luxury resort overlooking the sea. One day, enjoy a round of golf at Monte Rei Golf Club North Course, a Jack Nicklaus-designed course that's considered by many golfers to be the best in Portugal. The following day, enjoy a round of golf at the exclusive San Lorenzo Golf Course, which has great views of the nearby Ria Formosa Estuary. Upon request, Artisans of Leisure can arrange cultural touring, private yacht charters, hiking or biking in the Monchique Mountains, and other activities.
