Best tour in Lisbon
, Nov 2019
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!
Our best tour of the trip!

Our tour guide, Rod, was wonderful - friendly, super informative, super helpful - & flexible to our needs! This was the best tour we went on during our two week vacation to Spain, Morocco & Portugal! He took us to the best places & gave us the best recommendations. Would absolutely recommend this tour especially if you are short on time on Lisbon & want to see all you can. Thanks Rod!

The Highlight of Our Trip

Reuben was our guide for the tour to Sintra and did a great job. He had to improvise an itinerary for us since the roads to our main destination, the Pena Palace, were closed to private vehicle traffic due to a distant threat of fires. We went to Quinta da Regaleira, Monserrate, and Cabo da Roca. All of these attractions were terrific and Reuben was very knowledgeable and accommodating as he guided us through them. He even made reservations for us for an excellent lunch at Incomum in Sintra. We would recommend this tour and Reuben highly.
Amazing Tour

Joao was our guide. He personalized our tour for use and added special touches. It was absolutely great. We would definitely do it again.
Lisbon & Sintra in 1 day
, Sep 2019
We choose to explore Lisbon and Sintra in 1 day and our tour guide Bruno helped to optimize it as much as possible, by taking us to best places. Basically its not possible to cover everything in Lisbon and Sintra in 1 day, but he provide options and gave inputs to prioritize best places/ things. Combined that with historical stories about each place we visit, it was a very fun and amazing tour. The only thing I hate was that we could not go inside into Jeronimos Monestary which was so beautiful outside, due to they are closed for public every Monday. But thanks to Bruno who did compensate that with taking us to Cascais a bit on our way to Sintra. He was thoughtful with the food as well (my son and his dad were moslem). I wish we had time to stay longer! Thanks, Viator!
Great tour. Exceeds expectations.

Wonderful tour. Our tour guide - helped us navigate Sintra, took us in the palace and explained the history. Took all over Lisbon giving us a great tour. A great tour recommended for everyone.
Worth the price if you're on a short visit

Carlos was truly a great and knowledgeable guide. We started a bit earlier and beat the lines to Pena Palace and that experience was very well worth it. Driving along the coast from Sintra to Cai Cais had incredible views. He always dropped me off in good places with nice shops, landmarks, and restaurants and was quick to pick up when ready and always willing to adapt the times if you want to see more. The views he showed in Lisbon were also breath taking. Lastly I truly learned a lot of the history and the mentality of the people of portugal and definitely gained a huge appreciation for its influence to cultures around the world. If you want a small taste of how lisbon is and its surrounding areas I would definitely recommend this tour. Keep in mind it is not possible to see everything in a single day, but this gave me a great guide of places I wanted to spend more time in later in my trip.
Bad English

The driver arrived on time. He took us to places we choose, the problem was with his English it was very poor . There was no fun at all. The driver was polite. It was a taxi drive not a tour guide . I think he had a lot of information but he couldn’t deliver it to us. The next day we took Tuk tuk and it was just great .

Thanks for your comment. We were sad know that the tour was not as you expected. However we have doubts if this review is for our company since you didn't mention the guide´s name, yes guide in our company we only have accredited and certified guides and with immense experience what makes this comment a little bit strange. All our guides speak english very well, as you can see from hundreds of reviews on our TripAdvisor account. If possible send us the guide´s name to try to understand what happened. Thank you.
