My party had a great time on this tour, I would say one of the highlights of our whole trip. Our guide Jose is a load of knowledge and information and such a great guide, highly recommended. He gave us so much information that we can immerse on the experience fully. Batalha and Alcobaca were two great heritage from the past yet withstand time and left with so much history and of course Jose has stories to tell and made them more fun too. The best Portuguese “fresh catch of the day”dishes we had at Nazare with spectacular view of the beach. Ended the trip in Obidos with the taste of Ginja and wandered this beautiful old town within the walls. Awesome experience and highly recommended.

Tour guide/driver Pedro was great! We were able to go to all the sights noted on the itinerary and spend more time at one place as we requested. Nazare is beautiful and the restaurant that Pedro recommended was overlooking the ocean. Great ambiance and fresh seafood. Would recommend this tour for first time travelers to experience the most of your visit. Thank you Pedro and Hugo G.

Pedro made the day absolutely exquisite. He was kind and knowledgeable. He made sure he customized what our priorities were and tailored the day. Couldn’t have asked for better.
