I loved this day! My guide, Nuno...
, Oct 2017
I loved this day! My guide, Nuno, was fantastic. We went to all the places that most tourists / cruise ship passengers just do not go. He met me at my cruise ship and proceeded to show me much of the region. The perfect amount of time was given in each spot to really enjoy what made each stop unique. If you book this keep in mind your guide is not allowed to give tours within the palaces there are plenty of signs or audio tours available for rent within each palace and you'll dropped off in front of each palace with a meetup time to head to the next stop. Information Nuno provided about the region was amazing, very detailed and relevant as we completed the day.
