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.

Our Lisbon wine tour was fantastic. We booked our vacation through a well- known travel agent who scheduled all of the tours except the wine tour which we booked through Viator. By far the Viator Wine Tour was the best tour of our two week Spain Portugal vacation. Our guide, Paulo L with the company Viator engaged, Taking You There, was excellent. He was knowledgeable, humorous, spoke excellent English and made the tour memorable and a lot of fun. The wineries Manz Wine and Quinta du Murta were old world and charming. Our hosts at the wineries were knowledgeable and hospitable. The wine was excellent and the scenery was very nice. We will be booking more of our tours through Viator in the future because of our experience with this tour and specifically with our guide Paulo
The tour was awesome! Paulo was a great guide! Plenty of site seeing, good lunch, a little walking and lots of wine! The wine to buy was super cheap as well! We brought several bottles back! Definitely would recommend!
It was a definite worthwhile tour. Paolo, our guide was really good and went out of his way to show us as much as possible. It was an amazing experience. We enjoyed the 2 winetastings very much, also the traditional village he took us to, which we most definitely would never have seen on our own, even the lunch in a local restaurant was great and of course the very old Roman bridge was something we wont forget. We recommend this tour and Paolo is such a good tour guide. Would love to do another tour with him.
We really enjoyed the tour from start to end. From the moment we were picked up at our hotel, we were in very good hands with Joao as we drove out of Lisbon he pointed out some highlights of the city, told us about what to expect that day and made us feel very welcome and comfortable.
We saw some stunning country side and learned about some of the trades and traditions of the Portuguese. Once out of Lisbon we parked the car and had a lovely stroll through a small town to get a taste of life in the countryside. We looped back and had our first stop at a lovely winery with an incredible story. The owner discovered he had an extinct grape growing on his property. Very fun to drink something so unique in a very modern winery tucked amongst old world tradition.
We got back in the car and visited a few additional road side sites as we rambled our way in Joaos capable hands to the next winery. Again, we were welcomed like friends to our second stop and very entertained by the wonderful charm of the winemaker and his interesting approach to making wine in his region.
This tour appealed to us as it was a glimpse into smaller wineries with unique stories and very passionate people making great wine. We were very happy with our choice! Joao was very attentive and full of information. A great way to spend a day if youre in Lisbon and looking for a day trip.
