Fantastic experience, very much worth it. We were picked up from our hotel promptly on time. Our tour guide was very easy to get along with, great sense of humour and very knowledgeable around the areas. In addition to this, also gave us great recommendations for coffee places, food places, dessert places - recommended this incredible Bolo do Caco & Steak sandwich which made my day. Also gave tips on where to go (beaches, etc.) to avoid the huge lines of traffic. The day was also structured cleverly which meant we could enjoy the beauty of each palace whilst there were not too many people there. Such a good experience, highly recommend doing this and have already recommended to some friends visiting. Thank you for making the visit to Portugal a great one!

Although we were Italian, we did the visit in Spanish and we managed to understand most of what was said. Very nice visit and seen places that we could not have seen in other ways. Very good guide.

What a day! Palacio da Pena was my favorite part, simply amazing! The guide Flavio was super nice and the sailing was fun. I highly recommend this experience!!
