This was our first time taking a private tour. Our guide was one of the nicest people! He had wonderful knowledge of the places we went. The Pena Palace wasn’t accessible on that day so he took us to the government palace, a port wine tasting and a pastry shop and treated us to pastry & cappuccino. Instead of taking us to the crowded restaurant that all of the busses go to, he took us to a fabulous restaurant that the locals patronize. It was our last day in Portugal and this tour made it our best day. We highly recommend this company and especially Marceo (sp)
Jose is the best guide we've ever had! He made every stop was worthwhile. Also, he made sure that we stopped by a vineyard for us to actually see how they grow grapes rather than just viewing it on photo - that made the wine tasting experience very different! He also allowed us to stay in Pena Palace until it closed so that we can experience the sunset (this is one thing that you should take note, the view is breathtaking!) We love him and you're lucky if he is your assigned tour guide for this trip!
The trip from Lisbon to Sintra was nice and then to Pena Palace quite beautiful! The Palace tour was lovely and included a bit of a hike to the top, all worth it! Then the drive to the beach was not bad and we had a few hours there to shop and eat. The only thing that was missing was the Wine Tasting, which we were really looking forward to participating in...our voucher noted a wine tasting but one of the other couples voucher did not.
This tour was one of the highlights of our trip to Portugal. Our guide Bernardo was awesome. He had tons of knowledge about everyplace we visited and delivered it in a manner that kept even our 2 teen daughters interested the full 8 hours. He was prompt when picking us up, was an incredible guide and overall a really nice guy. We would highly recommend seeing Sintra with him and hope to hire him to see more of it when we return.
Everything was well planned by Diogo. Prompt pick up and a full exciting adventurous day was had. All 6 of us were extremely happy with the amount of knowledge that Diogo had about the areas we visited. Diogo is a professional, and we would highly recommend him to anyone that is truly interested in knowing more about this beautiful country. Thank you.
