What you'll do
THIS IS THE IDEAL TOUR IF YOU SEEK A MIX OF CULTURE AND LEISURE! In order to build up our appetite, we'll begin the day with a bit of Portuguese culture and history in Mafra (30min from Lisbon): We’ll visit one of the most iconic portuguese royal palaces in Mafra. It’s a place of magic where one massive building houses a convent, a palace, a basilica and one of the most beautiful libraries in the world! After that, we’ll visit the fishing village of Ericeira, where we'll show you the local fishing spot and the local fish market in order to buy a fresh fish for lunch. We know you might be hungry but don't worry! We will provide you with some local delicacies. After this brief visit, we will head towards an old family owned vineyard where we will go on a wine tour... The culmination of the day will take place shortly after at the same place, when we experience the ultimate portuguese lunch with a fresh fish grilled to perfection (the one we bought ; meat and vegetarian options available)… Did we mention that lunch will take place on the outside and facing the vineyards?
CAN AN IVY LEAGUE MBA BECOME A TOUR GUIDE? Yes I can! why in the hell did I, an Economics graduate with an MBA degree from Cornell University, decide to start from scratch?! Why did I decide to join Air BnB Experiences? Easy. I love my country. I really do. Every bit of it. Its rich history, its heavenly food, its passionate music, and its people. Its good things and its bad things… So I eventually asked myself what could I do with my passion for Portugal? I decided to create Rootfarers. We promote authentic experiences for authentic travelers. Join one of our tours!
