Our colleagues arranged this trip for us as a private tour. Rui was so nice and so knowledgeable about the history of the palace of Pena. He got us there as soon as it was opened as it is a very popular tourist attraction. We took the tram to the top and immediately he took aside to explain the history and the architecture of the palace. It was an extremely interesting and historical experience, probably about 2 hrs. He then brought us coffee and a local pastry which was delish. Then he took us to the shore for a lunch at Neptunos, right on the water with a view of the ocean. He ordered us the traditional cod dish and that did not disappoint. It was so delicious and the server was so accommodating. The prices are so reasonable with more than enough food. We then traveled to Capo de Raco and saw the beautiful cliffs there. It was breathtaking. We went on to a fantastic wine tasting and home through the lovely town of Cascais. It was a full day but we learned so much from Rui about the history and the people of Portugal. Would use this tour group again when we return.

Diogo is the best guide – April 2019
Diogo is the best guide!
We had Diogo Vasco as our guide for three days and he was fantastic! He was so knowledgeable and fun….his English was flawless and he was able to explain things so well, enabling us to learn so much about all the sights we saw. He was also able to joke around with us so the trip was full of laughter. We have been fortunate enough to travel a lot and have had a lot of experience with tour guides…Diogo was by far the best tour guide we have ever had. Also, the communications beforehand with the company was excellent and very timely.

Pedro was first class – May 2017
Lisbon, Fatima, Sintra, Cabo de Roca, Cascais
Pedro was AMAZING!!!
Arriving in Lisbon from Boston, Pedro was there to greet us at the airport at 9am in his brand new Mercedes van. That day and the next, my 3 friends and I had nothing to worry about. Pedro was first class and gave us tours that exceeded the wow factor. From the airport we went up to Fatima. Not only does he give us the whole tour of the basilica and the factory to get rosaries, he brings us back to find a priest to bless them. Even sends us pictures of the Pope who arrived a few days later. After Fatima, he took us down to Lisbon. Pedro knows his history, as he should, he did teach it at the university. He also knows when 4 ladies are ready for sweets and takes us to the right spot for pastries & port!
After an entire day he brought us to our hotel and greeted us again the next morning at 9am. Off to Sintra and Cascais. Had a tour of the amazing Pena Palace up top the mountains with amazing views. Strolled the town, took in a delicious port tasting and learned all about cork and did some pretty cool shopping. Cork bags are beautiful! Wined and dined at a great fishing village restaurant and had an amazing personalized lunch of the best sea bass. Took in breath taking views at the furthest western point of Europe at Cabo de Roca and continued to tour the quaint town of Cascais before he brought us back into Lisbon for a little bit more.
We became good friends with Pedro. He was a wealth of information with a fun and genuine personality. Definitely hit the wow factor touring with Pedro for 2 days.

Wonderful day to remember in Sintra! – November 2018
Wonderful day to remember in Sintra!
Review of: Private Tour: Sintra Day Trip from Lisbon
My friend and I did a private tour of Sintra with John. We had a really great experience – we appreciated the flexibility of a private tour and being able to see the specific sites we wanted to see. We were really grateful that we got to Pena Palace early before most other tourists arrived – it was great planning on their part and allowed us to maximize our experience there. One of my favorite parts was the off the beaten path stop at the convent, which was like nothing else I’ve experienced and was really peaceful. I enjoyed talking to the guide about Portuguese culture and getting in touch with the true Portuguese experience. We also ate at a great restaurant for lunch when we were there, and John knew the owners personally, so we felt very welcome. All in all a wonderful day and we were glad we did a private tour – Sintra was quite a magical place!

The best money we ever spent – May 2019
Loved Pena Palace !!
On May 10, while in Portugal for my son’s wedding, me my brother and sister in law went on a tour of Lisbon and Sintra with Miguel. It was the best money we ever spent. Miguel was so knowledgable, friendly and easy going. We had a wonderful unforgettable day! I booked the tour at home in NY based on the fantastic reviews. Susan Lynch
