What people are saying about Ericeira

A very nice day

They came to pick us up at the hotel where we were staying in a timely manner, but to our surprise our guide, Paula, showed us that the guide who made the visit in Spanish had become ill and that she would visit her, although she did not speak good spanish. We were only visiting for what we did on a tour with Mrs. Paula, a super friendly person, who demonstrated her extensive knowledge about Lisbon, and had a good level of Spanish, getting us to spend an unforgettable day in Lisbon. Thank you.

Very good choice :)

This is a very good choice if you're only in Lisbon for around 3 days. You get to see parts of Lisbon that for sure you wouldn't see if going alone. We had Marcos as our guide and he is really good. He has a vast knowledge of Lisbon and the surroundings, he's friendly and his English is pretty good :) Because we liked this tour with Marcos, we also booked the tour to Sintra, Cabo da Roca and Cascais which was excellent!
