Discover Portugal's Treasures and hidden gems with WCQS next spring. We invite you to join WCQS President Jody Evans for a special customized Explorations tour from Collette Vacations - April 9 - 20, 2015.
From the rhythms of Fado to the realm of the Knights Templar, explore this Iberian gem. Travel to the Portuguese Riviera. Enjoy luxurious accommodations in a series of pousadas – elegant, unique, historic hotels. Visit 10 UNESCO World Heritage sites, including the Tower of Belem. Call upon Porto, birthplace of Prince Henry the Navigator. Marvel at the priceless treasures of the Royal Palace Ducal and the National Museum of Coaches. Follow the contours of the Douro River and savor local wines from the world’s oldest wine making region. Linger in Cascais on the Portuguese Riviera. Watch the secrets of Portuguese cuisine come to life during an interactive cooking class. Raise a glass of the nation’s renowned Port and toast a land with a fascinating past and modern charm.
You’ll be traveling with friends because our tour will attract people like you – public radio listeners. This exclusive trip, tailored just for WCQS, has less than 25 seats available and we expect it to book quickly.
We will be hosting an informational session Wednesday, Sep 24th at 6pm in the Lenoir-Rhyne University Asheville Boardroom in the Asheville Area Chamber of Commerce Building for anyone who would like to learn more.
