Our tour guide Andre was amazing! There was no boring moments with him as he regaled us with stories/histories of or about the places we visited. He is very knowledgeable about the places and he pointed us to nook and cranny part of the places not frequented by tourists and even taking pictures of us and even giving us reasonable time to explore and yes, to shop! Traveling from one destination to another became even more interesting with his narration of his experience as tour guide. Such an interesting and kind fellow.

Andre is a very people friendly kind of tour guide. He goes to extents to please each individual’s request. He respects how everyone has traveled from far, and has chosen this tour, due to the very good reviews. His excellent reviews remain consistent. A multilingual guide, careful driver, good photographer and so on…. Fatima , Nazare, Obidos, such wonderful memories. Our tour went on from the planned 8 hours, to 10.5 hours and Andre didn’t mind at all. Highly recommended. We are very satisfied. Thank you, Andre
