This was our first time taking a private tour. Our guide was one of the nicest people! He had wonderful knowledge of the places we went. The Pena Palace wasn’t accessible on that day so he took us to the government palace, a port wine tasting and a pastry shop and treated us to pastry & cappuccino. Instead of taking us to the crowded restaurant that all of the busses go to, he took us to a fabulous restaurant that the locals patronize. It was our last day in Portugal and this tour made it our best day. We highly recommend this company and especially Marceo (sp)

Jose is the best guide we've ever had! He made every stop was worthwhile. Also, he made sure that we stopped by a vineyard for us to actually see how they grow grapes rather than just viewing it on photo - that made the wine tasting experience very different! He also allowed us to stay in Pena Palace until it closed so that we can experience the sunset (this is one thing that you should take note, the view is breathtaking!) We love him and you're lucky if he is your assigned tour guide for this trip!

We had such an amazing experience with Jose. He was super knowledgeable about the different parts of the city and was mindful of our time constraint. The tour honestly felt like we were traveling with a friend rather than a tour guide. He recommended an amazing restaurant for lunch and showed us a lot of things off the beaten path. We’re foodies and his food recommendations were out of this world. The next time we’re in Lisbon, we plan on booking another tour with him.

Amazing - Top

I can only recommend this tour. With Barbara as tour guide it was a lot of fun, so again a big thank you. She explained everything very well and the day was one of the best. It is best to take a jacket because it can be cool on the mountain. The views were amazing.

Rui was a great host. He picked me up at hotel and drove to Sintra, Cabo da Roca and Colares.
