Travel that's shaped around you

We know that travel has the most meaning when it's created individually for you. Our specialists will only start designing your trip once they understand exactly what you want it to be. So, consider this idea simply as inspiration for your own experience.

Itinerary idea in detail

With international flights from a choice of airports including London, Birmingham, Manchester, Newcastle, Edinburgh and Glasgow.

  • Today you begin your journey by boarding your international outbound flight to Sao Miguel. Today you land on São Miguel, the largest island of the Azores. After picking up your car you’ll drive into the capital city, Ponta Delgada, and enjoy an afternoon walking tour through the city.

  • This morning you’ll be met by your driver-guide to venture northwest of Ponta Delgada to Sete Cidades, a caldera known for its twin lakes. You’ll spend the morning exploring the area by bicycle and 4x4 before returning to your hotel. Later, you’ll head to the marina to embark on a shared whale-watching tour.

  • You have the day at leisure to explore São Miguel on your own. You may wish to explore some of the tea factories outside Ponta Delgada, or cross to the eastern side of the island to explore Povoação and Nordeste.

  • Head to the airport this morning to catch your flight to Lisbon where you’ll be met and driven to your hotel. After a little time to relax you’ll head out to a special dinner where you’ll be treated to a performance of traditional Portuguese fado music.

  • This morning your guide will meet you at your hotel for a walking tour of Lisbon that takes in the sights and offers some tastings along the way. The afternoon is yours to spend at leisure, perhaps wandering the alleyways of the Alfama district or venturing up the Santa Justa elevator.

  • Today you’ll have a guide for a full-day tour of the palaces of Sintra, known for their vibrant, whimsical architecture.

  • Bid farewell to Lisbon today as you head to the airport for your flight. Your return flight will arrive the same day.
