This is a great tour and I wholeheartedly recommend it! We saw all the places just like advertised in the description. The only downside for me as a solo traveller was the price (I guess one has to pay for a minimum of 2 people). Agnes, our guide was clearly the star of the show: she is full of energy and she is lots of fun! She took the time to talk to each and every one of us at the beginning of the tour, made recommendations throughout the journey based on people's interests and depending on where everyone has already been in and around Lisbon, she paid much attention to us and our safety, and she explained things clearly and with great detail. Paulo is the coolest driver. He is just as attentive and kind as Agnes and he was always there on time to pick us up from the various locations. Agnes and Paulo, muito obrigada pela excursão!

Agnes and the driver (sorry, I do not really remember his name) were wonderful guides! Extremely friendly, light-hearted, easy to communicate, happy, up to some laughs people. The sight-seeing was amazing, would definitely recommend for anyone who's interested in seeing more than the heavily tourist populated places, monuments or attractions. Had the best time on the road and while walking around, received lots of extra tips on what to do after the tour (which we definitely took on board) and had lots of laughs and made some unforgettable memories. Thank you a lot and best wishes from Lithuania! Keep up the good work! Lukas and Indre.

Tiego was lovely, very kind and patient and gave us tidbits of information throughout our drive. He was punctual picking us up and the car had the booster seat we requested for our toddler. Would book again and recommend this service to others!

We liked it very much, saw everything as described with a very good tour guide. We were amazed at the personal guidance, as our tour group consisted only of us 2 people.

It's been a fantastic trip. Our tour guide showed us a lot and told us about the history of Portugal, was very knowledgeable and accommodating.
