    Myself, my partner and my mum went on this amazing trip while staying in Portugal, it was a perfect day out. We were picked up by our tour guide Miguel, who was the highlight of the trip for us! He was so entertaining all the way with his stories and very knowledgable about the areas he was taking us to. He was very relaxed and focussed on making our trip a great one, which it really was. He was patient when we wanted to stop to pick up drinks or spent a little longer than we should have at one of the sites. The old medieval town was so quaint and had some lovely shops, and Miguel also took us to the factory where they make the porcelin birds as we wanted to get some as gifts. Nazere was so beautiful and it was it was much quieter than where we were staying (Cais Cais), I would go back there for longer on our next trip. Thanks so much Miguel we will definitely be seeing you again soon

Very good tour, 100% recommended. Once the purchase of the tour had been confirmed, I was informed that it would be in English (I do not speak English) and I thought it would be a failure, but the places and the guide Tania, made this take a back seat. Very good guide.

This was one of my best trips ever. The guide, Andre Feldman, is excellent in explaining the history and culture of these cities. I would definitely recommend this trip when visiting Lisbon.

Very nice tour well organized with a friendly and knowledgeable guide. I'd suggest more time at Obidos, maybe a half hour more to do the complete city walls walk.

Excellent experience, Carlos is a spectacular guide, he knows a lot and is very attentive. We enjoyed it very much!

Great tour, friendly and and knowledge guide, small group.
