I truly enjoyed this tour. Wine was amazing and loved all the stops and information we got. I really enjoyed the small group experience. Highly recommend this tour.

Great tour. Juao, Paulo, Salvatore, and Ricardo were great guides. If you are looking for a nice day trip outside of Lisbon this is a great way to spend your day. Just to set expectations, I wouldn't describe this as a wine tour, rather a day trip with stops at two wineries. That said, it's lovely, and you will be back in time for dinner and going out back in Lisbon.

This was a fantastic tour which showcased two of Lisbons premier vineyards - one a small boutique wine maker, the other Portugals largest wine maker who exports all over the world. Led by a really knowledgeable guide Joao we got to learn about and taste some of Portugals great wines, as well as to travel through beautiful countryside, stopping for a seafood lunch at Sesimbra and finishing at Cristo Rei for the most amazing views of Lisbon and the 25th April bridge. We would throughly recommend this tour and not just to wine lovers as it is an easy way of seeing some of the beautiful countryside just on the outskirts of Lisbon.

What a great day we spent with Andre Costa and the towns of Arribida and Sesmbra! Andre was an excellent guide with great insights because he grew up in this area. He took us to great vineyards were we could sample and purchase our tastings. My wife and I really enjoy this type of tour because it would take us too much time to navigate ourselves to all the locations. Sit back and let Andre do all the driving! A wonderful experience - we highly recommend it to people who want to see something outside Lisbon!

It's a small group of 6 in this tour including the driver and guide. There are 2 understudies tagging along as well. The wine tasting went really well. But I love watching the roaring wild Atlantic waves crashing into the shore from the restaurant where I had my lunch.

Nuno was a great guide! The tour was awesome. He was very enthusiastic and passionate. He also went out of his way to show us things and take us places that were not officially on the tour. He was very fun to be around and very knowledgable. It was a great day.
