Alexandra was a wonderful guide with the right amount of providing information and recommendations while giving us enough time to explore on our own. Her tips helped us avoid long waits and her restaurant tip in Sintra provided great views, delicious authentic Portuguese cuisine, and was affordable. This was the best part of our vacation in Portugal. I cannot recommend enough.

The lady, called Alexandra was very kind, she had perfect english language. Brought us everywhere we just wanted to go. Gave us tips with the restaurants and sightseeing. She was very professional, nice, funny and understanding. Also we visited the coastline, where the world end. It was the most beautiful view, what I've seen (thank you). Surely recommanded tour and tourist guide. 5️⃣⭐️

I thoroughly enjoyed this trip. While priced more than larger tour groups, you get value for money with a more personalised experience. Alexandra was very knowledgeable, providing us with the relevant history of the various sites we visited. As a solo traveller joining another small group, Alexandra made me feel comfortable and helped to integrate the entire group. We visited a number of sites in Sintra, with a choice of where we wanted to spend more time exploring as well as some flexibility at how long we stopped at different points. The meeting and drop off point is also conveniently central. Definitely confirms all the strongly positive reviews so far. Highly reccommend.
