Ricardo was a warm, knowledgeable and thoughtful guide. He tailored the tour to a variety of ages and interests even keeping an 8, 13 and 16 year old engaged. The tour itself gave a unique perspective of the area from a local who so clearly loves his home. It was a pure to delight to spend the day with Ricardo. We appreciated visiting popular destinations, while avoiding tourist traps.

This was one of the most fun things I did in Portugal and by far the best way to see the Sintra and the coast. I was traveling alone but I found the group and our driver Mario to be super friendly and welcoming. You could tell this company and its employees really care about the area and making sure travelers get to fully appreciate it. We saw some incredible places, had a great lunch at a local restaurant, and listened to some great music while off-roading from point to point. I would recommend this to anyone traveling to Lisbon!

This tour has been one of our highlights of our Portugal trip. We thought the day was perfectly-paced and included a great variety of history and culture, beautiful nature, off-roading adventure and delicious food. Bruno was our fantastic guide. He’s knowledgeable and passionate about the area and sights, very friendly, and did everything to make our group feel comfortable and informed. We’ll be recommending this tour to any of our friends who make the trip to Portugal!
