Pawtucket, RI (June 13, 2024) – Collette’s new “Portugal’s Old World Charms” tour will launch its first departure in June 2025. The small group Explorations journey features a maximum group size of just 24 travellers.

“Portugal is a consistent hot spot for travel - beautiful beaches, hillside towns, food, wine, culture and more,” said Jaclyn Leibl-Cote, chief executive officer at Collette. “This journey was designed for the culturally curious traveller who enjoys a blend of guided and leisure time on tour, simple but high-quality cuisine and wine, and history. The pacing of this tour allows travellers to feel the authenticity of a destination by spending time in each place rather than rushing through sight after sight.”

The 10-day itinerary features a cruise through the most scenic route of the Douro River Valley where travellers will stop at the vineyards to learn about the wine harvesting process. Other highlights include a guided walking tour of Evora, a stop at an Olive Grove in Alentejo for a farm-to-table lunch, and much more. Travellers will soon be able to book departures for as early as June 2025, with prices starting at $3,999 USD pp.
