We had a WONDERFUL time on this trip with our tour guide, Goncalo. He is a lovely lovely young man, very friendly, responsive, considerate, and interactive. Most of all, he is very knowledgeable about Portugal’s royal history and eager to tell us throughout the entire trip. Ericeira is a small fishman town. The chasing waves of the ocean were very impressive. Mafra Palace and Queluz Palaces seem to be less known to tourists, but thanks to Goncalo, we have learned a lot of Portugal’s history when visiting these 2 Palaces. we really appreciate Goncalo’s proactive interaction with us. He contacted us to introduce himself and to confirm the pick up time/location so that we could have a peace of mind before our trips. We highly recommend this trip, especially with Goncalo as a tour guide.

Our guide Costa is very experienced and he dropped us at all the beautiful spots for taking pictures. He gave us enough time to walk and feel the Atlantic Ocean which is so worth to see. The Atlantic coastal lines are a MUST to go route. Costa is also very thoughtful to let us visit the miniature museum of Portugal before going to Mafra Palace. The library of Mafra Palace is terrific, haven't seen such a beautiful palace library before. Costa knows a lot of history and he introduced us in details on the Portugal history in relation to the Mafra Palace making our visit very much more interesting. Mafra Palace is beautiful though without much furniture.

we were transported in a vehicle which was clean and super comfortable and John our driver and guide was a careful driver. He was a lively and informative guide who’s knowledge of the two sites was expansive. We had ample time at both sites, and learned so much from John, info which we would not have been able to find out by ourselves. We especially loved walking on top of the walls of Obidos, and the long inner corridors of the Mafra Palace. John even provided a recommendation for a quick lunch which was a local bakery where the food was excellent. We would highly recommend this tour. Thanks John!

We absolutely loved Paulo and wished we had found him earlier. If you want an on-the-beaten path experience with a guide who likes to avoid crowds, knows the right balance of talking, and is incredibly knowledgeable this is the tour and the guide for you. He does longer trips as well. I would recommend just asking for him to be part of your entire trip.

Wonderful day with Iain! He is a gracious driver/guide who makes every effort to cater to your specific requests--and in his beautiful car! Highly recommend!
