    We were lucky enough to have Juao. He is an excellent guide, with a lot of detailed knowledge, which he communicates in an exciting and interesting way. He is also very patient with the “photo times” and incredibly helpful. We had a particularly great day in really wonderful places - thanks a million Juao !!!

    The discovery of Sintra was brilliant. I did not take Cascais, because it is very accessible by train. Took all 3 palaces in Sintra, and it's totally worth it. All 3 are sublime, totally different in style, a marvel. Our guide, Joao Ramos was awesome. It's really time to go, there is no one there! We escaped the usual huge cocks. A wonder this day
