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!!
What a great tour, from the on time pick up, to the fantastic guide Nu Nu who was a lot of fun, to the wonderful tours, scenery and lunch, this was a memorable day.
This tour is value for money. We thoroughly enjoyed the sights with Ricardo proving to be an excellent guide. It will remain one of the highlights of our trip to Portugal
Wow, absolute value for money! Ricardo proved to be an excellent guide, great commentary, safe driving and exceptional choices for food stops. This tour will remain one of our highlights of Portugal.
Our guide Rui was great. He was very kind and very knowledgable and extremely helpful in any way! Would definitely recommend this tour. A great way to see Lisbon! And would definitely recommend Rui in particular as a guide - we were extremely grateful for such a great guide!!
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!
Great day out. Sintra is cooler than Lisbon so dress appropriately. Very cool place and highly recommended
The tour was incredible! Packed so much into our 1day in Lisbon felt Like we were there for a few days and at the same time not rushed at all. Ricardo was great, very knowledgable and easy going. Even when the tour ended he took us to sportings stadium and then dropped us at benficas Aswell! Legend!
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.
Amazing!!!! One of the most memorablest days of my life. Our tour guide was Joāo Dietl and he was so kind and attentive. We went everywhere and if you want to really experience Portugal this is the best route. Worth every penny, you will not regret it. We did the 8 hour tour and loved it.
We loved our recent tour of Lisbon and Sintra in Portugal. This is definitely the way to tour! Our guide, Julianne, was very knowledgable about the sights to see and places to check out. She even gave us time to shop. She also took us to a restaurant that served those famous little cakes. We thoroughly enjoyed spending the day with her. The car was awesome, too. Everyone wanted to take pictures of it. I would definitely recommend this tour if you want to see Lisbon and Sintra, and have a great time doing it. So much fun!
Was the BEST tour ever! We had an amazing time. Our driver was awesome - She was very accommodating and had tremendous recommendations that made the day so very special.
The best ride Juliane our guide was such a good driver and took us around the beautiful sites in Sintra, drove to Cabo Da Roca the most western point in Europe, we had a wonderful lunch in one of the sea food restaurants and drove through the beautiful city of Cascais and then to Lisbon where we stoped at two more interesting spots. A great trip.
Highly recommended. We had a minor issues with the exhaust from the VW but once the roof was open everything was ok.
This is one sensational way to see not just Liboa itself but the magnifacent countryside that's all within a 20 kilometer distance from the city. Our Guide and Drive Ricardo went out of his way to show us a area he clearly loves and knows like the back of his hand. Magnificent scenery, historic landmarks, geographical wonders--just amazing how much is packed into 9 1/2 hours. I cannot say enough good things about this touradventurehistory lessonfunindividual attentionit's just you. This is one of the best travel experiences we've ever had. Do not miss it.
one of the best days of my life!
It worth every single penny .. I went with Ricardo .. he is an amazing guy with a good personality .. I felt like I'm having a tour with my friend .. this is a must if you are in Lisbon ..
Amazing tour with Ricard! He was flexible and accommodated our requests. He takes excellent pictures as well.
This was JUST a lot of fun. The guide was excellent. We actually had people taking photos of us as we were travelling through the city and around. Highly recommended!!!!
We did this tour on our second day in Lisbon and it's a great and fun way to see the city. Our drivers Luis and Joao turned up bang on time at our apartment in funky pink and purple restored VW's and we set off on a tour of the city which lasted 4 hours. The drivers were very accommodating and stopped wherever we wanted whilst also telling us about the history and sites that are worth a visit. It was great fun and the cars certainly raised interest around town with people waving at us along the way. If you want something a bit different from the regular tours you should definitely do this. Thanks Luis and Joao for a fun afternoon!
We absolutely loved our tour and our guide Luis. We did the full-day tour and we were picked up right outside our flat rental in Lisboa. We started in Sintra and then drove along the coast to Cascais and Belém. Luis made sure we understood where we were going and always asked if there was something else we preferred to see instead. We trusted his recommendations and we weren't disappointed! We had a choice of places to have lunch, we opted for the traditional Portuguese style restaurant and it was delicious! We ended the tour with some porto wine and pasteis de Belém yum! in the park near the Torre de Belém. I would highly recommend this tour, especially if it's your first time to Lisboa.
The tour was great. It felt like we were led around the city by a friend. Sintra was beautiful and the drive along the coast was impressive. The day we went on our tour it was a little cold. Fortunately our driver packed a blanket it and it made the weather more tolerable. Overall a great tour.
We had such a great morning , only problem was finding the shop as we were not told they would meet us at the boat .
Worth spending the money on this tour and our guide was fantastic Roué was extremely helpful and his knowledge of Portuguese history was very good .
Thank you for making our first visit to Lisbon such a memorable one .
