Wonderful day trip in Cascais and Sintra
, Feb 2020
Sintra is worth to visit. Looks wonderful. It is well maintained. I would like to recommend taking light but up to the palace. Cascais is a fascinated seashore town. In Winter, it is quite peaceful and relaxed. Don't know how's in Summer time. The guide is very nice and. The restaurant he recommended for lunch is very good one. Our group enjoy the food very much.

A marvelous tour of Fatima, Nazare and Obidos on January 29, 2020. Our guide, I believe his name was Rui was excellent. He was very accommodating, funny and I believe made everyone feel comfortable.

Our guide Carlos was a very nice fellow! Was knowledgeable about a lot of history in Portugal and was easy to get along with. You see lots of fun and cool things you won’t see anywhere else. Would recommend
Could not have asked for a better planned itinerary. We had just enough time to get an impression of the stops, and to explore a little on our own and learn about the salient details. I left desperate to come back someday!

I wish I could give our guide, Anna Vaccori, 6 stars! Her tour was filled with fascinating information about the history, culture and architecture of Lisbon. Our entire family loved the tour! She knew the back ways with escalators and public elevators so we could cover more of Lisbon than I would have thought possible. When booking through Viator, try to use Inside Lisbon and Anna. We've taken several walking tours in various cities and this may have been the best!
Delightful introduction to Lisbon for newcomers Walking tour of old Lisbon neighborhoods and buildings of historical importance. Lasted about three hours, approximately two to three miles walking with some steep climbing and use of elevators to reach higher points of interest. Mostly elderly participants (including myself!) all were able to complete the walk. Inês gave a very interesting commentary on Lisbon’s history throughout. Samples of pastel de nata, wine, local cheese and cured meats were included as part of the tour. We also had the chance to sample ginja for a small additional fee.

My wife and I olny had one full day in Lisbon and wanted to see as much as possible. Our guide, Bruno Almeida, confirmed our tour the night before, then arrive at our hotel 15 minutes before the scheduled time. We discussed what locations we wanted to see besides the scheduled stops, then made a plan for the day. We visited all desired locations and a few surprise stops at locations that other tours do not include. This tour is a great value and Bruno is an excellent guide. We are planning a return visit and will request Bruno again.
Our guide was excellent. He was knowledgeable, friendly, very willing to customize the tour to our interests.
We had easy conversation , learned so much about the areas we visited, and had a thoroughly enjoyable day
Would highly recommend this tour. We took numerous tours in the area as well as in Italy and this was at the top of our list for the best. ( I believe the guide’s name started with an N possibly Nuno ). We thoroughly enjoy his narrative of growing up in the area and how being a tour guide was his life’s calling.
Carlos collected us punctually from our hotel and proceded to take us on a delightful tour of Sintra and Lisbon. He was charming, friendly, very knowledgeable and clearly proud of this beautiful country and its fascinating history. We would highly recommend this tour!

Lisbon: Half Day Sightseeing Tour on a Private Electric Tuk Tuk
From $85.03 (Price varies by group size )
So Much Fun!
, Nov 2019
We LOVED this tour. Be sure to ask for Joao - he was incredibly knowledgable about the city, shared many stories and doubled as our photog. Despite it being chilly and rainy, we had an amazing time with him. Joao even gave us dining and activity recommendations for the rest of our stay!
Jose, our driver and guide,did an amazing job of getting us to all areas of Lisbon even though many roads were closed due to a marathon. He was knowledgeable and personable; the joy of a Tuk Tuk is the conversation that can be had with the driver and the options of deciding where to go and how long to stay. Absolutely recommend as an into to Lisbon.
We enjoyed our private tour. The guide was personable and knowledgeable. The tuk tuk was great for getting into smaller areas but was somewhat uncomfortable after a couple of hours of riding on cobblestone streets.
Explore Lisbon in a unique way with this tour by electric tuk tuk, an eco-friendly way to travel around the city’s narrow streets. You’ll be driven by a guide through historical neighborhoods like Alfama and Mouraria, and stop at a viewpoint for photo ops of the city. Pass by attractions such as Praça do Comércio, and finish up in Belém.
Full-day Fátima, Nazaré, and Óbidos Small-Group Tour from Lisbon
Funtastic Day in Portugal
, Jan 2020
We had a wonderful day with Manuel. He taught us much about Portugal and answered all of our questions. He was a very safe driver, which was really important to us. It was a small group of eight of us. We met lots of nice people that day and had a lot of fun touring the Portugal countryside. I think we would have loved a bit more time in Obidos and a little less time in Fatima, but that's just us.
Great Tour. Had a great time, saw many cool things and our guide - Nunu was excellent
, Nov 2019
This tour took us to Fatima first - the journey took around 1 hour 40 minutes due to traffic. We saw the cathedral, old and new and witnessed some pilgrims crawling on their knees.
Next stop was Nazare for lunch, a 2 hour stop. We had some fish stew, which was great (Paid for at own expense). 1 fish stew is enough for two people - note that there is a fish stew for 2 people on the menu, but that is enough for 3-4 people!
Next we went to see the large waves and where the surfing competition takes place - these waves are bigger during winter.
Finally we went to the ancient village of Obidos, similar to the walled cities in Wales, the walls are still in tact. The village is a lovely place.
Our tour guide - Nunu - was excellent! If you have Nunu you will have a good trip.
The Batalha Monastery in Fátima is one of Portugal’s most important Catholic pilgrimage sites and visiting on a small-group tour means you’ll enjoy a more personalized experience. This full-day tour from Lisbon visits the sacred sites of Fátima Sanctuary and Batalha Monastery, as well as the beach resort of Nazaré and the medieval town of Óbidos.
Small groups to Fátima, Batalha, Nazaré and Óbidos
Fátima, Nazaré and Óbidos
, Jan 2020
Wonderful trip to the north of Lisbon. What you get with this tour is a driver not so much a guide. Our driver David was very friendly and informative. The amount of times spent at each location seemed somewhat unbalanced. Example: We spent 30 minutes at a comfort stop and to shop and 1.5 hours at Fátima (to allow time for mass). If you don’t stay for mass it can seem too long. Nazaré was a beautiful coastline village but we only had 20 minutes there. You get to see so many amazing sights and it’s hard to see it all in one day. It’s definitely worth going.
I enjoyed a full day of touring these locations with 4 other travelers. Fatima was so important for me to visit and was amazing. The areas of Batalha, Obidos, and Nazare were all wonderful. Small charming towns, UNESCO sites, beautiful views... what more could you ask? Bruno was friendly and informative. A terrific guide who led us through a perfect day.
Explore some of Portugal’s most historic city on this full-day tour from Lisbon. Discover the religious city of Fatima and learn the stories of the Virgin Mary’s apparition, visit the UNESCO-listed Monastery of Batalha, see the massive waves at the small fishing village of Nazare, and end the tour in the quaint medieval city of Obidos.

My husband and I really loved this tour! I was a little concerned about electric bikes because I’d never ridden one before, but the staff did an excellent job teaching our group how to use the controls. It wasn’t hard at all. I loved how our guide stopped at practically all of the important destinations and gave a detailed lesson. We went to the lady Of the hill where I bought a pastel de nata, and enjoyed the views. We biked through Alfama and graca and got off the bikes at more than a few points to walk around and learn about Lisboa. There’s two guides (the main one in the front) and one in the back to make sure no one gets lost. I highly recommend this tour. It was the highlight of our trip for me 😊
Discover Lisbon’s hills the easy way during this electric bike tour.

I booked the boat trip for a group of eleven of us. We were in Lisbon to celebrate my 30th birthday. We booked for the Sunday as we saw the weather was better for that day. So glad we did...the weather had been a beautiful 20c with clear skies and bright sunshine. We got to the snack bar meeting point. (We put the cafe name in uber and found it no problem). We had a drink at the meeting point before going aboard. You’re able to take drinks on board in a plastic cup. After a quick safety chat from Rod, we set off. It was just us as a group on board which was perfect. We were able to sit everywhere on the boat and got our welcome drink. Further drinks were reasonably priced too. As the sun went down, it got pretty chilly, but they have blankets to hand out. But it’s still probably worth taking a jumper for this time of year.
Rod told us about different places we went past on the trip.
The sunset was just beautiful.
It definitely made our trip unforgettable.
Rod and the other crew member (cannot remember her name) were brilliant hosts and nothing was too much trouble.
I’ll definitely recommend the trip to anyone heading to Lisbon.
Surprised my partner with this cruise to celebrate our three-year anniversary, and it didn't disappoint! From the views, to the time of evening, to the fact that we get a drink offered, it was a lovely way to spend our anniversary sunset, and we even got to meet another lovely couple celebrating their ten year anniversary! It is not inherently a romantic cruise, but it is really excellent if you are a couple! On our boat, there were about 4 or 5 couples, and a couple groups of friends, as well. The lovely gentlemen manning the ship also made sure to give us facts about the sights we were seeing, and pointed out some great things to take photos of! Highly recommend this short cruise to anyone and everyone! :)
Due to weather forecast Marta kindly rescheduled our tour to a morning cruise, rather than just cancelling. She even arranged for us to board the catamaran for cover in case the ran continued. Antonio the skipper was great with plenty of knowledge, providing access to music and refreshments. We had a fantastic time. I would definitely recommend this company.
Spend an evening on a leisurely sunset cruise along the Tagus River, departing from central Lisbon. Sip on a welcome drink while traversing the Tagus aboard a boat with a small group.

On a calm evening, sailing the river is the perfect way settle yourself after a long day of travel. This tour is limited to 12 people for a quality experience.
I wanted to go to Fatima over the years, but this is more than I expected, everything in that place was magic, from the air, to the sky, the plants and even sweet animals, there is the closest I have been to heaven... Love it !!!!

Highly recommend this tour!

We had a private tour with Gui as our Guide whom made our Sintra tour a memorable one. He’s really professional and was able to share the history of Portugal very well! We stopped by a beautiful beach for lunch. Restaurant served really good food (best octopus rice we tasted during our trip!). The time was well planned to visit the places planned of interest. We enjoyed chatting with Gui and appreciate his safe driving throughout. Glad we chose Jump in tours - thumbs up!
António was an amazing tour guide! Extremely personable and friendly. Made my wife and I comfortable from the moment we stepped into the van. As a local from Sintra, he knows all the best scenic areas that you wont get with a huge tour group. He gave us as much, or as little, time as we wanted in each location and let us customize the day exactly as we wanted. He is extremely knowledgeable with the history of each site. I would absolutely not hesitate to recommend this tour to anyone! You will not be disappointed!
