Had a great time with our guide visiting a couple of wineries and an establishment that makes liquors. Added highlight was a visit to an outfit that hand makes tiles. Particularly enjoyed tasting the liquors.
Paul the tour guide was great. He made sure that we well received to all of the itinerary. Very informative and accommodating. We had a great time. We had a buffet lunch in a very good place and we recommend that you use this place in the future in all of the tours to Setabul.

Excellent full day tour. Rod was a fantastic guide with interesting observations not only related to the tour but about Lisbon and Portugal as well. He was very knowledgeable regarding the 3 winery stops and very familiar with each winery and either the owners or other personnel at each location. The last stop was the most interesting in that the owner sat down with us for over an hour talking about the history of the winery and previous uses of the building, her plans to grow the business and the Setubal region as well. He was very accommodating and flexible. We made an unscheduled stop at a tile manufacturer where the owners gave us a tour of the operation from start to finish. Overall, an excellent day. Highly recommend the tour.
Trip was fantastic! Our tour guide Rodrigo i.e. Rod let us personalize the day however we wanted. All of the wineries were great and the spirit distiller had some great products / jams. What made the day even better was the authentic Portuguese lunch recommended by Rod and even a stop at a local tile factory on the way home. Will be recommending this trip to anyone traveling to Lisbon!
Great tour and great host/guide. Joao is an extremely knowledgeable, personable, and enjoyable. Joao took us to several wineries/vineyards including a liquor producing establishment, which has a very interesting story. It was very pleasing to ask Joao questions and receive fulfilling answers about Portugal, other destinations including additional countries he tours, and anything that came to mind during our time with him. The fact that it is a private tour two people and not a small group tour made it even better. I would rate more than 5 out of 5 if I could.
Our wine tour with Joao was amazing!! He picked us up at the apartment we were staying at, took us to three great wineries one of which had liquors and delicious sheep cheese and jams, and even took a detour and took us to a tile factory when he heard we loved the tiles we were seeing around Lisbon. Highly recommend!! Had such a wonderful time.
The tour guide we had was actually the owner himself. It was great to hear about his story and why ended up starting his own business. He is very passionate about about the tours and is full of many facts and knowledge about Portgual and the Setubal wine region. He was able to answer my questions with lots of detail. His English is well spoken. The wine tours itself were amazing with full glass pours and at your own pace. There was no rush and he personally knew the staff and owners of the wineries which was a nice touch. During the day my sister had a little too much wine and he actually ran out to get her some food - service is king here. The wineries we visited from large, medium, and small really showcase the wine making in this region and give you a great dive into Wines from Setubal. Additionally, we sampled artisan cheeses and liqueurs which was a great touch. I will definitely take another tour with this company again. I had asked how he picked the wineries and he and is wife go to the wineries and get to know them and change them up regularly. He gets no commission from these visits to the wineries. I highly recommend!
Fantastic day out with Rodrigo. Picked up on time at our hotel and had an amazing day. We couldn't fault one thing, the wineries he took us to were great, the tastings of wine, cheese, bread, jams was super and we went to one of his local bakeries for coffee and custard tarts. Rodrigo also said if we would like to go or see anything else just to tell him as he was with us for as long as we wanted the day to last. First class service and a must do trip if you are in Lisbon.
Our private driver guide Raul was absolutely amazing. I would always book this tour again and ask for him
John was a great guide for a day in Setubal and his in depth knowledge of all things Portugal and the wine country was a treat and real cork trees!. Highly recommended for anyone looking to explore a different side of Portugal outside of Lisbon area.
