Our guide Costa is very experienced and he dropped us at all the beautiful spots for taking pictures. He gave us enough time to walk and feel the Atlantic Ocean which is so worth to see. The Atlantic coastal lines are a MUST to go route. Costa is also very thoughtful to let us visit the miniature museum of Portugal before going to Mafra Palace. The library of Mafra Palace is terrific, haven't seen such a beautiful palace library before. Costa knows a lot of history and he introduced us in details on the Portugal history in relation to the Mafra Palace making our visit very much more interesting. Mafra Palace is beautiful though without much furniture.

This tour was the best thing i’ve done in my trip to Portugal. Our guide, Rodruigo, was amazing! He was very friendly, made wonderful stops at the coastal road so we can check the viewpoints and enjoy the ocean. And most importantly, he made our trip very memorable because it was so much fun (and there was a surprising wave too! Literally! Watch out lol). He also recommended very good restaurants at the fishermen’s village. We had a fantastic time and enjoyed a delicious meal there. The Mafra palace was impressive and Rodruigo was very patient as we enjoyed the gift shop there :) He is also very knowledgeable and shared the history of the area with us. I couldn’t ask for more! The trip was excellent and I highly recommend it!
