This tour was excellent! Luis was very informative, and though we saw so many things throughout the day, it did not feel rushed. I also changed my itinerary to stay near Sintra that night, instead of returning to Lisbon, so Luis insisted on making sure I was dropped off at my Sintra hotel.

With our fantastic guide Mr. André Feldman we enjoyed a wonderful daytrip to lovely Sintra with Pena Palace and magic Quinta da Regaleira. We also visited the famous coastal town of Cascais with the rock formation Hells Mouth and the most westerly point of mainland EuropeCabo da Roca. André saved us a lot of waiting time at the sights by adopting the program accordingly. We were an international group of 8 peoplein a minibus and had a fantastic day together. Thanks a lot for this great experience! We will definitely recommend this tour and also will highly recommend André!

Andrea Feldman was our driver/ guide. He knew so much about the sights. He navigated some awful traffic and got us to the front of lines every time! He took multiple pictures of all of us and knew where the best places were for picture opportunities. He is personable and speaks flawless English.

Without a doubt, the best guided tour I have in Portugal! Our tour guide, Andre Feldman was very cheerful, entertaining and knowledgeable about the history of the places we visited. But the best parts about this tour were the little tips he shared to avoid the crowds and the timing - he always made sure that we arrive at the places before any other tourist group. We had most places to ourselves for a good 5 - 10 minutes. Definitely recommend this tour for a cultural immersion trip!

Do not hesitate in booking this tour it is worth every penny!

We had Hugo as our guide and he made the trip very enjoyable. The trip started at Sintra village and then onto to Quinta de Regaleira. One of the reasons I booked this tour was because it included a visit here where most others do not, it did not disappoint this residence is absolutely magical and Hugo gave a fantastic account of its history, I was blown away, definitely the highlight of the trip!

The stops in Cabo de Roca and Cascais were great with ample time to see the area and take plenty of photos, Hugo even stopped the van to allow me to take some fantastic shots of the waves just outside Cascais, amazing!! The tour finished with a trip to Pena Palace, and although you do not get a guided tour inside I honestly do not think you need it as the Palace is so beautiful from the outside and you can walk all around it. It was so nice to just sit, relax and admire the splendour of it all. Going to the Pena Palace in the afternoon also meant we missed the morning rush and got to spend more time at the Palace.

Thank you Hugo for an amazing day! If I ever returned to Lisbon I would not hesitate in booking a tour with Lisbon Native again!

Great tour if you have a short time in Lisbon. I loved that they picked us up at our small hotel and we were only a group of 5 ladies! It was like a private tour. Many thanks to our local tour guide. He was great.

Great guide, Hugo, fascinating overview of some of Portuguese history, a dedicated and caring guide who looked after his clients without watching the clock. A highlight was Hugos demonstration of a freemason ritual.
