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)

Awesome!

The custom tour was better than what we agreed to and expected. The driver Daniel was exceptionally professional and knowledgeable. With a custom tour we were able to go where we wanted and see the best sights for us. No one slowed us down or sped us up- The only way to see all the best sights of Sintra in a day. Daniel appeared with the Mercedes just as we needed him and we customized to our needs as we went. A fantastic day.
