Introduction:

This vacation was designed for a past family client of ours, they enjoyed the trip so much we decided to add it to our tour product list.

You will start out in Lisbon and travel up through Northern Portugal staying in luxury hotels, pousadas etc.. Also for you to really get to know the places visited we have set up several private local guides to take you on full-day and half-day tours, like in Porto where you will visit one of the famous Port wine lodges.

Reaching the border you will travel through Green Spain starting out in Galicia´s marvelous Rias Baixas coast savoring excellent Albariño wines and seafood. Then visiting monumental cites like Santiago de Compostela, Leon, Burgos... Not only will you experience Green Spain you will follow along the Pilgrimage way to Santiago passing by historic village with some privately guided tours along the way. In Spain you will stay in Parador hotels most of the journey and then luxury hotels in some major cities. The touring portion of the trip will end in Madrid, vibrant capital city of Spain with lots to do and see.

After all that traveling and sightseeing you deserve a relaxing resort stay, so now you will fly down to Malaga and then make your way over to Marbella in the heart of sunny Costal del Sol. Here you will stay in a grand luxury resort and soak up the sun and maybe do a bit more light sight seeing if you wish.

This luxury vacation will leave long lasting memories for the whole family!
