What people are saying about Setúbal Municipality

A gorgeous tour.

It was a half-day tour individual tour. Not tiring at all. Well organized. The car has waited at our hotel door even before the appointed time but nobody demanded us to hurry to get out. We asked for going to the statue of Christ monument on the way to Arrabida as we were afraid not to have time to see it from close by in the other way and the guide easily agreed. The Cabo Espichel - the cliff with an uninhabited monastery and the lighthouse not far away - is to my mind a jewel of the viewpoints. However all the other places advertized in the tour: the lagoon with its small fishmen's huts, the mountains with a number of views to the both sides of the ridge, the natural park with trees of immense beauty of form, and so on are highly worth of seeing. I should like to add that they also deserve to be shown generously, the way they were shown to us by a person who loves them and wants them to be appreciated. Strongly recommended https://www.lrsportugaltours.com/

On the day of our departure we had half day free so we were wondering what to do. We were lucky enough to come across this tour offered by Lisbononwheels. The tour guide was excellent, very knowledgeable, patient, and friendly! The van was comfortable, with A/C and onboard Wi-fi, and there were bottles of water free of charge, in case that we got thirsty. The guide took us to see breathtaking spots in Arrabida, and to our minds Praia da Lagoa de Albufeira-Mar was the most impressive beach we haven seen so far in Portugal! We took our time at each spot and could enjoy a hassle-free morning. It was the best way to say goodbye to Lisbon. This is a tour I would recommend to anyone who wants to explore hidden parts of Lisbon and enjoy wonderful views! For couples, it is a must in Lisbon!

Memorable!

It is a tour that exploits your senses ... of taste - very good tastings and also all the sight seeing of these places with the sea in front and the green of the place in contrast ... we loved it! Highly recommended - André first!

It was a private tour, so I was able to respond flexibly to this request and I was grateful. Thanks to the knowledgeable guide Natasha, I enjoyed it very much.

We had a great half day trip with José. we were picked up on time at the agreed meeting point and saw a lot. All in all highly recommended.
