Loved this tour. Spent the day learning a lot about the history of wine within the nation and Sesimbra was the most beautiful place I had seen in a long time
Because of the low season we were the only two tourists for this tour that day, but it didn't make it less exciting! Lots of great sightseeing, history and of course vine!
This was an amazing tour! Our tour guide, Augusta, was very knowledgeable and friendly. In spite of the day starting off with not the best weather, the beauty of the Arrabida National Park and the views of Portugal's coast line were breathtaking. We visited a small family owner winery called Quinta de Alcube, and tasted some of the best wine we have ever had. A couple of bottles of their wine made it back home. A highlight of the tour was our lunch stop in the fishing village of Sesimbra. This is a place we will want to stay at for several days on our next trip to Portugal. After lunch we visited a second winery called Casa Museu Jose Maria da Fonseca. The history of this winery was very interesting but we were not fans of their wine. Our only recommendation for this tour would be to replace this winery tour with another smaller winery such as Quinta de Alcube. We stopped at the Cristo Rei Sanctuary on our return to Lisbon where the views of the Vasco da Gama Bridge and the city of Lisbon were amazing. We took this tour on our last full day in Portugal after a two week vacation travelling throughout the country. We could not have been happier and this day was definitely one of the highlights of our two weeks in Portugal.
This was a great day trip and one that I would highly recommend if you enjoy wine and the ocean. I felt that it was a solid value for all that I got to see and do.
I could not have been more pleased with this tour. I took this tour in early November and at each site we visited we were the only tourists present. John was knowledgeable of the region and a true advocate for his country. My only suggestion would be to add a second winery visit to the itinerary.
A lovely day, a visit with a mix of different activities, from vibrant markets to hidden gems of the Portuguese heritage.
This tour was a great way to discover a part of Portugal which is a bit hidden to tourists, and it's more for locals. I really enjoyed seeing the nature through Arrabida's Natural Park, and the couple of stops we did at 3 beaches. One was surrounded by amazing cliffs and the other one in Sesimbra, a charming village where we had amazing grilled sardines at a local restaurant. Great views all along the trip! I also really enjoyed the visit to a winery and the wine tasting, very well worth it!
Portugal is a jewelry! And be aware...I'm talking about Portugal, not only about Lisbon. Go for it!
We had a fantastic day trip with Luis! He made sure we saw everything of interest no matter what.
OUR GUIDE - i THINK IT WAS LOUIS. WAS VERY NICE AND KNOWLEDGEABLE.
Enjoyed the trip. Our guide was very informative, and these are great areas to tour and visit. The small vineyard is by far the better of the two. I would recommend this trip highly.
A great outing from Lisbon to visit some charming wineries and beautiful parks!
The tour guide was great and had a story to tell for every spot we visited. But it's a little overpriced.
