This was great - really wonderful tour. However, you don't get a guide to walk with you through Sintra, and you basically explore on your own. It would have been nicer to have a guide point out some the highlights of this amazing site.

This tour was amazing!

We had a full day tour with the informative and delightful tour guide, Patricia. We arranged the tour as we did not have too much time in Lisbon, and wanted to learn as much as possible. We were able to ask questions all day long, and Patricia showed us places and gave us much information we would never have learned on our own. Easy five stars!

We really enjoyed this tour thanks to Bruno our tour guide. This is a great alternative to crowded, conventional tours. The sights we visited were beautiful and we had so much fun driving around in the convertible beetle with Bruno. Skip the stuffy tour bus and take this tour.

My family had a short time to visit Lisbon and this was the way to do it. We had some rainy weather, so having a knowledgeable guide and a car at our disposal was great! João was our guide and he was friendly, knowledgable and kind. We have never had a private tour before and this really exceeded our expectations. We stayed in Alfama on a small street that can be challenging to get through, especially with the tram coming and going, so we were told to meet a a nearby, convenient location, which worked out perfectly. João was prepared for us right on time with water, an extra umbrella and blankets to keep us cozy. We saw all of the sites that we were hoping to see plus ones we thought we might not have time for like Palácio Pena in Sintra. I highly recommend this tour, even if your can't drive with the top down. It was a lot of fun. Obrigada, João pelo tudo especialmente, os pasteis de Belém! Tudo foi perfeito.

Thanks Luis our driver. Was one of the best trip we had. We only had one day in Lisbon, we were able to see almost everywhere we wished to see and even went to the Cabo da Loca and Sintra. Best service and so knowledgeable about the roads and the history... we learned so much in one day!!

Patricia was awesome! I love being shown a city from the perspective of someone that has lived there most of their life. Patricia pointed out the typical big name attractions but also some smaller personal ones that you would not have noticed. She clearly loves Lisbon and that shows in her bubbling personality. We had a great time on the ride and would happily do it again!

If you're only going to be in Portugal for a brief amount of time, this is the perfect tour - totally worth it!

The tour: this tour is totally worth it! My mom and I ended up upgrading to the 8 hour tour and its the best method to see a lot in a little amount of time. The 8 hour tour is pretty extensive and very impressive! We went to the castles in Sintra and got lunch in the center of town and shopped around. From there, we traveled along the 'countryside' which was such a beautiful ride nice and peaceful! Then we went to Cabo de Rock which was incredibly beautiful words cannot do it justice! From there, we drove to Praia do Ginshu which was absolutely my favorite spot: breathtaking views! This stop allowed us to drive by and see a lot of beaches if you're a beach lover, definitely opt for the 8 hour tour. From there, we went to Cascais and went to the marina. At every stop, we were able to take as much time as we wanted, take pictures and explore! The whole day, we were getting stares from onlookers because the car is truly a head-turner. Best day ever!

Our tour guide: Luis is the best!!! He was our tour guide and arrived at our hotel promptly and even waited for my mom and I to grab some quick breakfast. That said, we got started about 20 minuets late but Luis was perfectly accommodating throughout the entire day! We went in October so it was kind of chilly outside. He provided us with blankets during the drive which was very nice. Throughout the entire day he provided so much information and cool facts about the country he really knows his stuff! He was very personable, genuine, and helpful. Not to mention very patient and just kind in general :

This tour is a must completed exceeded my expectations!
