Our trip was well organised and exactly what we wanted and thought it would be. Agnes and Paolo picked us up at our hotel in a minivan (a family of 4 with grown up children) and there was just one more person in our party, making it practically a private tour. It gave us flexibility and speed. We had just the right amount of time at each planned stop where Paolo would drop us off and Agnes would guide us with detail and cheer! Thank you both, it was a lovely experience. Highly recommended!

Fantastic experience made so worthwhile by Agnes' enthusiasm and expert knowledge. Would definitely recommend this to others.

Very pleasant trip - knowledgeable and friendly guide and driver. Pena Palace was magnificient

Agnes and Paulo were fantastic. Couldn’t have asked for a better tour.

Great service and experience. Well done to the organisers.
