João picked us up close to our Airbnb. Then we drove round about 45 minutes to the first vineyard/museum. We were shown around and learned about the history of the company (7 generations) and how the vineyard is making wine. Afterwards we had a wine tasting with two wines. The second spot was a farm where we saw cork trees, tasted grapes from the bush and tried 5 local wines. The last stop was a village that acts as a storage for local producers. Here we tried another 5 wines and had a great goat cheese plate. You are not forced or animated at any stage of the trip to purchase the wine. It's your personal choice. João is a very talkative person. We learned a lot about wines from him, but also Portuguese olive oil, his personal story and wine-production efforts. He's a really great guy and we totally recommend the trip. The whole trip was covid19 regulations conform. A small tip - take some water with you because there was none offered with the wine tasting.
This tour was fantastic! We had a really nice time with Maia and Philippe and they were the perfect host. Friendly and fun. Maia was super knowledgable and fun to be with and she made some extra detours of things she thought we would like. A really relaxing and easy way to get to know the city and highlight the things we wanted to go back and see more of! Maia booked a table for us in a very authentic Lisbon seafood restaurant full of locals and we loved it. A real authentic Lisbon Experience all round. At the end of the tour, we took the public scooters back in to town which was also a nice way to get around and soak up the sun. 10/10, throughly recommend this tour, well done guys and thanks for a lovely morning. The pastry will forever be in our hearts
We did this on our first day, it was perfect and I don’t see any other way of obtaining the most beneficial information on history and guidance for the rest of the trip. Peter our tour guide was absolutely fabulous I cannot quite comprehend how he knew so much delicate and intricate pieces of information that most don’t learn about in schools. This fascinated me and seriously helped build an image in my head creating an immersive experience. Needless to say the segways were absolutely fantastic! Great coaches Peter and his intern, we were pros by the end of it! To top it off we tried all the local traditional snacks and drinks that we hoped to! Thank you so much!!!
It was great because we've had the chance to experience and taste traditional food and drinks and also because Pedro was an excellent guide for us. I would strongly advise for Pedro to continue working in this field as he is very good and also helps tourists with indications and any information they might need. As a person, Pedro is very funny and has good spirit and definately knows how to keep a group together and make us interact between us.
Johana was the best guide we could ever have. She is so nice and knows everything about Portugal. We were so lucky and were the only 2 on the tour, we recommend it completely. You eat and drink different things from local shops where local go, so it's a real experience. Johanna know a lot about the history of Portugal and can tell you all kind of facts and answer all of your questions, oh and she speaks perfect English!
