Our tour guide, Paulo, was excellent! He picked us up from our Lisbon apartment and as we were leaving Lisbon, he recommended restaurants to visit as well as attractions to see which were very close to our location. He was very knowledgeable about Portugal as well as this wine region. We visited Mafra and had a very good typical Portuguese lunch at a local restaurant. During the day, we visited two wineries where we tasted their wine and were given a history of the winery as well as a description of their wine production. We were very impressed with the winery choices and we would definitely recommend this tour!
This was a great tour and if you are a wine loving person you should absolutely do! Our guide was very knowledgeable and informative and the 2 wineries we visited had excellent samples and winemakers who gave us the low down on the grapes, climate and ratings of each. It was a great afternoon and would highly recommend!
Paulo, our guide was very good. The Quitas we visited were, overall, good. Manzwine deserves a special mention. Rita, our host, was knowledgeable and happy to answer our many questions about the winemaking processes and wines. The wines were very good. Paulo took us to a small cafe for a typical Portuguese meal, including soup, sardines and mackerel. He also went out of his way to organise vegetarian options for one of us.
Paulo was excellent. He came on time, drove well, was polite courteous and informative.
He took us to very good places.
We highly recommend him to our family and firends
We had a truly wonderful day. First communication prior to the tour was great, received a few emails confirming time and place for pickup. We were picked up promptly at our hotel, actually Paolo was early, we were still eating breakfast. It was pouring rain, and he literally pulled the van to the door and was right there with the umbrella. We enjoyed both wineries, both the staff that did the tours and the wines as well. Beautiful countryside and the people were genuinely warm and kind. Paolo was a great guide. So energetic, you can tell he's passionate about Portugal, wine and food. Made a couple of stops, one in Mafra to see the lovely church and then to sample the best nata in Portugal. Would highly recommend a day trip with this company!
We had a fantastic day with Joao from TakingUThere, visiting two gorgeous vineyards within the Lisbon area. The private vineyard tours were really informative and interesting - and really fun! - and the wine we was fantastic. We also made a quick stop in Mafra to see the palace and learn a bit about the town. Joao is extremely personable and knowledgeable about Portugal, which made the time spent driving pass very quickly. Overall, it was a perfect day - and a great value!
AMAZING day!!! A must when visiting Lisbon....Joao was a great guide! Knowledgeable and eager to please - it was so nice to have personalized service.... the vineyards are simply beautiful and the wine is divine! The sommeliers at the vineyards were passionate and excited to host us. It was a special experience and highlight of our trip!
We had an amazing wine tour with Paolo, covering two vineyards and several stops along the countryside to get a better feel for the areas we were visiting. Paolo is a great guide - he is very informative, makes you feel comfortable, and wants you to have the best day possible by catering the tour to your preferences. At lunch, Paolo got a local restaurant recommendation, and helped us order some local favorites. Definitely recommend this tour, it was one of our favorite days of the whole trip!
This trip is fantastic and we could not have loved Paulo more as our tour guide. He goes out of his way to make sure you understand the history and culture of Portugal all while drinking delious wines. Would recommend this trip to anyone!
Paolo was fabulous. He was very engaging and informative with a great passion for his country and culture. The wine tastings were each unique and personal learning experiences, and the wines were fantastic. We could have chatted with Mario all day. We had a wonderful lunch at a charming little local spot in Mafra.
It was a fantastic way to spend the day, and we highly recommend this tour.
