What people are saying about Cascais

Great way to see the sights outside of Lisbon!

My son (age 9) and I booked this tour to see things outside of Lisbon without having to rent a car! It was awesome! The guide was knowledgeable and we learned quite a bit about Portugal. He gave us good recommendations of restaurants and what to see in our "free time." Although I wish I had known where we were going to have free time as I would have done a little more research myself on the other options. I had interest in Quinta da Regaleira and had no idea it was a 10 minute walk from our 2 hour lunch stop! I would have given up a sit down lunch to see it. I loved being in a small group and I'm glad I didn't rent a car as it was a lot of time driving and the traffic would have put me over the top in stress levels. Highly recommend!

Fantastic guides made the tour very memorable

Agnes and Paulo picked us up from our hotel as planned at 9am for a 5 hour tour of Sintra, Cabo da Roca and Cascais. Some unexpected rainy and cloudy weather had us rethinking our planned itinerary. We were able to adjust our plans and still get an amazing tour of these parts of Portugal. The guides went out of their way to ensure we had a great experience. The responsive email communication the evening before our tour put me at ease that we were off to a great start. Would highly recommend this tour.

Outstanding service, met on time by Gabriel and driver Hugo excellent.

This company is outstanding, great value after a long flight and carrying luggage. Met by Gabriel and taken outside to Hugo and a lovely car to transport us to Cascais. Hugo was excellent, spoke good English and gave us lots of local knowledge and tips. He found our place to stay, parked and helped with our luggage then phoned the proprietor to come out to us. Thank you Hugo. Fully recommend this company and will surely use again. Will also post on trip advisor for others.

Pretty good way to see Lisbon over a couple of days.

We bought a two day, 4 route ticket and managed to complete all four circuits over the two days. It was certainly a good way to see a lot of Lisbon and some nearby towns along the coast. Busses were pretty regular and not overcrowded and the on-ground staff were very friendly and helful. Only criticism really was the terrible quality headphones they supplied (audio quality very poor and distorted) - so for the best results, bring your own.

Amazing tour - well organized, fast paced and tons of fun!

Thank you for a great day. Bruno was amazing....he knew so much of everything, made knowledge fun, was very smart to take us to Pena Palace early to avoid the massive crowds and overall was terrific. His English was impeccable we loved his accent - dropping the r's at the end of every word was beautiful on our ears :) Thank you and we hope this review helps you get more customers!
