We had such an amazing experience with Jose. He was super knowledgeable about the different parts of the city and was mindful of our time constraint. The tour honestly felt like we were traveling with a friend rather than a tour guide. He recommended an amazing restaurant for lunch and showed us a lot of things off the beaten path. We’re foodies and his food recommendations were out of this world. The next time we’re in Lisbon, we plan on booking another tour with him.

Wow what an incredible experience. José was the ultimate host. The conversation and all of the information imparted by Jose really made this a true adventure. From the beautiful views in Cascais, Colares with amazing food and unique wines to historical Sintra each was magical. I truly felt immersed and the was able to see and do so many things without feeling rushed. If you can only do one tour, this is the one you cant miss. Thank you

This tour was exactly what we hoped it would be. We saw so much in just half a day - ideal if you are short of time as we were, with only 2 days free in the Lisbon area. Our host was charming and knowledgable, Sintra was delightful, Copa de Roca gave us some fine coastal views and it was also good to see various landmarks on the drive mack into Lisbon

José is an excellent guide! Very knowledgeable and full of energy. Sintra is really nice and we booked a short trip because the weather was turning bad for the afternoon. Would've totally spent 1-2h longer to visit monuments inside. Next time!

The guide Jose was extremely nice, friendly and organized.
