João picked us up close to our Airbnb. Then we drove round about 45 minutes to the first vineyard/museum. We were shown around and learned about the history of the company (7 generations) and how the vineyard is making wine. Afterwards we had a wine tasting with two wines. The second spot was a farm where we saw cork trees, tasted grapes from the bush and tried 5 local wines. The last stop was a village that acts as a storage for local producers. Here we tried another 5 wines and had a great goat cheese plate. You are not forced or animated at any stage of the trip to purchase the wine. It's your personal choice. João is a very talkative person. We learned a lot about wines from him, but also Portuguese olive oil, his personal story and wine-production efforts. He's a really great guy and we totally recommend the trip. The whole trip was covid19 regulations conform. A small tip - take some water with you because there was none offered with the wine tasting.
Our guide Tanya was helpful and personable, making this an enjoyable day. The minivan was clean, modern and in good condition. The locations were photogenic, and, with Tanya's input, interesting. We departed the schedule by having a longer lunch in Sesimbra than expected, but this was no problem. The wine tasting was enjoyable, and the wines reasonably priced to buy. A good day, recommended. All reasonable covid precautions were taken.
I highly recommend taking this tour if you enjoy hiking and the outdoors! I received hotel pick-up and drop-off from Lisbon to the hiking trail. The trail itself was absolutely beautiful and the views were incredible! Andre was a great guide, very knowledgeable and fun to hike with. It was the perfect day trip and my favorite day from my entire vacation!
This tour is a great chance to see those areas of the Lisbon suburbs, where you can't easily get to by public transport. During this trip you're going to have stunning views, passing by tiny villages, have a lunch in a small pretty hidden town, get inspiration and ideas for your next days, and of course taste a very local wine. Was awesome!
This is one of the best tour I’ve ever had! Our guide Tânia is very passionate and knowledgeable! We were lucky to have her! The view from the Arrábida Mountain was just stunning! And at the end of the trip, we went to a winery, where had excellent wine. I really recommend this tour to everybody!
