Due to COVID-19 this tour has been postponed to August 16-24, 2020.

This tour is specifically designed for alumni ages 22-35.

Encounter Portuguese traditions in Porto’s beautiful historic old town and cross the bridge into Vila Nova de Gaia for a tasting of the famous port wine. Go biking in the Douro Valley wine country and discover lush river valley vineyards that lie beneath the hilltop castles. Meander up one of Lisbon’s lofty hills to the Alfama neighborhood or take famous Tram 28 to discover the capital city’s tiny neighborhoods with baroque streets and dazzling statues. Venture south to the famed Algarve with its stunning coastline views for some beach time and watersports. Portugal is still a bargain, but a destination on the rise and now is the time to go.
