The Splendor of Portuguese Gardens
Coming late October 2021
Our tour begins in Porto, a UNESCO World Heritage site. We will visit private gardens and attend a cooking class at the Sogrape winery. Leaving Porto, we will travel through the Douro Valley to Villa Real and the Mateus Palace and gardens. We visit Santar, a small village with beautiful manor houses. Our tour concludes in Lisbon, with time to explore the capital's heritage and history.
Experience an in-depth exploration of Japanese gardens, culture and cuisine. Beginning in Tokyo, we venture north and west to areas off the normal Western tourist route where we can enjoy the beautiful countryside, see lovely gardens and experience exotic cuisine. Guests will also have the opportunity to experience Japanese-style accommodations and warm up in one of several onsen (hot springs) along the way. Optional extension to Kyoto, a UNESCO World Heritage city.
