    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.

I have to say I’ve been on many tours, but this one definitely takes the cake. If I was to give a golden globe this one would get an Emmy. The tour itself was beautiful and pena palace was just breathtaking, along with cascais and of course Sintra town, but the guide was what made it worthwhile. The absolute banter that was had while at the destination and on the journey even was next to nothing. Vitor was educational, helpful and an absolute gem of a human! His humour and knowledge was fantastic. He asked questions that allowed the group to discuss openly and bond as a whole, even with language barriers. We learnt all about different cultures and languages from different corners of the world as the group was mixed and we got on very well with everyone. It’s a 12/10 from me and would 110% recommend to a friend #pógmothóin

Mario was our guide he was fantastic. We had a nice group of travelers. From 20 something to late 70’s . Everyone had a great time. We walked up to the palace together had a room to room tour. Then had alone time to look at stuff we wanted more time with. Then we toured a couple villages. With self tour time. Then we went to the sea. Then back to the pick up location. The total time was eight hours. It was lovely.

Our guide Rodrigo was excellent, he gave us fun and easy to folloW information about Pena palace. I surely recommand this guide to see great places here for a good 8 hours tour.

We booked a private tour and our tour guide Veronica was very nice and had a lot to tell. We really enjoyed this day trip and would definitely recommend to our friends.
