My niece and I were picked up by our guide, Ricardo, in a green VW Beetle convertible at the front of our hotel. We instantly felt a connection with him as he listed our options for the morning. Along with the usual spots, Ricardo arranged for us to try the best custard tarts we've ever tasted! He customized our trip through our questions and conversation so that we would see those things that we most wanted to see, and he also threw in a few extra surprises. The second half of the day was the Sintra portion where Ricardo took us on the scenic drive along coastal streets and we visited several well-know sites. He was obviously very proud of his country and gave us really insightful information that made the sites come alive for us. Our trip included a trip to the town of Sintra, which was very beautiful. We had a wonderful stop in Cascais at the 'best' gelato store, according to Ricardo, and he was right! We travelled through the forests and smelled the Eucalyptus trees through the open roof of the car and had a wonderful lunch in an authentic neighbourhood restaurant. All in all the tour was terrific and I think our most favourite spot was Cabo da Roca. Had we not had Ricardo as our guide it might have been similar to other tours except for the car. It was truly his enthusiasm and enchanting personality that had made it a wonderful tour. He was so flexible with the locations that he even arranged a last-minute visit to a reputable tattoo parlour to get my first tattoo. I think my request was even surprising to him, but he went through with it for me. I love my tattoo. Thanks for a very remarkable tour, Ricardo!!

Fabulous tour with Justin!! Felt like we knew our way around the main areas of the city by the time we finished our time together, which was just what we wanted! The purple VW Beetle was a hit with us and with onlookers!! By the end of our time Justin made us feel very special - thank you!!

Loved this tour although at times was worried if we would make it through the day as our guide drove rather fast and tended to look at us in the back or at sights he was pointing out to us! But all in all a lot of fun. We had the red beetle and fortunately it was warm enough - just - to have the roof off. Made getting in and out of the back seat much easier. Our guide was a great guy and really friendly and nice. Sintra and Cascais are beautiful places to visit and the coastal scenery at the most western point of the continent was fantastic. Highly recommended day out from Lisbon!

A fantastic way to see the highlights of Portugal outside of Lisbon. Our tour guide and driver Louis was superb and very helpful. Driving on a beautiful day with the top down in our green Beetle made the trip more special. I would highly rate this tour as a great way to start your Lisbon experience.
