Superb experience! I recommend to all this visit if you want to know a bit more about the culture of this wonderful country! All the places, order and all facts shared were carefully determined with the objective to allow us to deep dive on the past, present and future of Portugal. Our guide was not only a gentleman, but also an inexhaustible source of knowledge and local tips! Wonderful! Thanks!

Felipe is a true job master! Trust him to bring you to the right place at the right time. We snorkel in a beautiful bay of the National park. Highly recommended experience, different from the usual ones, for the tourists visiting Lisbon.

We really enjoyed the tour, varied and informative. Guided tours with two winegrowers with wine tasting, a visit to the market in Setubal and a visit to the castle in Sesimbra were impressive. A great day with a very nice tour guide.

We had a very nice tour to the wineyards/houses of Jose maria da Fonseca and Bacalhau. And to the castle etc. It was very good and along the way our guide (Thiago) knew a lot, many thanks to him!

Excellent tour, especially for the preparation and kindness of the guide with full historical knowledge of the region.
