What You Can Expect

Private Tour: Ribatejo Region with Wine Tasting

Ride a horse-drawn carriage through a prestigious wine estate

After hotel pickup in central Lisbon, settle comfortably inside your private minivan for the approximate 1-hour drive north of the city. Enjoy scenic rural views en route to the Ribatejo region and ask your personal guide any questions you have about your destination or the full-day itinerary.


The first stop on your private wine-tasting tour is the 12th century estate of Quinta da Lagoalva. On arrival, climb into a horse-drawn carriage for a charming 30-minute ride through the vineyards. Then tour the winery cellars and discover traditional winemaking methods while you sample two varietals of local red wine accompanied by chouriço sausage and bread. 


Afterward, your guide makes a lunch stop at a local restaurant in Almeirim (own expense) where you can order sopa da pedra (stone soup) and hear the tale about the origins of this flavorful dish.


Next, you’ll travel past stilt huts in Vieira do Escaroupim, located in the Tagus Estuary Natural Reserve. Learn about the age-old art of falcon training and see eagles, falcons and owls in captivity with a visit to the Falcoaria Real (Royal Falcon Training Center), if time allows.


On the return drive to Lisbon, make a final wine-tasting stop at the estate of either Casa Cadaval or Quinta do Casal Branco to sample two additional red wines along with cookies. Observe Lusitano horses, aka Iberian horses, at the horse stables before your tour concludes with hotel drop-off.

Please note: A minimum of two people per booking is required.

5 star rating: Highly Recommended June 2015

I would highly reccomend this trip to everyone visiting lisbon and who wants a fantastic day filled with good wine, cheese and chorizo. The guide picked up us at the correct time, he spoke very good english, was polite and had a good sense of humour. It was a private tour, so it was, me, my sister and the guide. NOT awkward at all, just pure fun! I learned alot about wine and bought some fantastic wine with me. The price is very good when you se what you get for the money!:
