Introducting A Scouted Travel Experience in Portugal & Spain

 An extraordinary journey designed for culturally curious travelers.

hillside in Portugal


 At The Scout Guide® Huntsville, we are all about scouting the best of local… local food, drink, shopping, entertainment and more. Our goal is to help our audience live well locally. We also believe that an integral part of living a full life is experiencing local in other parts of the globe. For that reason, we have partnered with our friends at Windham Travel and Leisure and Church Street Family to offer a curated travel experience through the wine region of Portugal and into Spain. We invite you to join TSG Co-owners Dawn and David Pumpelly and Church Street Family’s Matt and Stephanie Mell as we experience the local’s life around the globe in this adventure on the Iberian peninsula.

As you follow the Douro River through Portugal and into Spain, you’ll cruise past steeply terraced hillsides, quaint villages and acres of ripe vineyards. Enjoy private tastings of Port. Explore Porto’s historic Ribeira district, home to iconic rabelo boats, cutting-edge cuisine and a thriving art scene. Wind your way through the dramatic landscapes of the UNESCO-designated Douro Valley, heading ashore to visit charming quintas and meet the winemakers who operate them. In Salamanca, Spain, you’ll see the city’s famous university. Return to Portugal with a visit to the fortified village of Castelo Rodrigo and historic Guimarães. There’s no better way to discover Europe’s best-kept secret than this scenic and all-inclusive river cruise!
