What people are saying about Sesimbra

Amazing experience!

We bought the tour through "Get your guide" and got quick response from André and Natasha from Lookaroundtours, who delivered the tour. Breathtaking views and amazing to see real footprints from dinosaurs! Our guide André was very knowledgeable and interested in nature, especially plants and told us a lot about the plants we passed. He also told us the history from when they build the church and more. We strongly recommend this tour with him!

Fantastic trip, one of the best guides ever!

José was great. He is well read, well-informed, accommodating, creative and very funny. We had a wonderful day. I did not know when I booked that it was a private tour. I would not have booked it had I known - that would have been a mistake. I can not recommend him highly enough.

The tour leader - Manuel- was friendly, knowledgeable and professional. He is an absolute asset to the company. The guy who took us to the beach on the boat was great too! Overall it was an amazing day and highly recommend.

INCREDIBLE DAY! José was the best and gave my husband and I a day we will never forget. He was so welcoming and treated us as dear friends right from the start. I highly recommend this tour!!
