Wow what an incredible experience. José was the ultimate host. The conversation and all of the information imparted by Jose really made this a true adventure. From the beautiful views in Cascais, Colares with amazing food and unique wines to historical Sintra each was magical. I truly felt immersed and the was able to see and do so many things without feeling rushed. If you can only do one tour, this is the one you cant miss. Thank you

Our guide for the day was Mario and he was excellent! We really enjoyed our full day out, saw everything we wanted to see and never felt rushed. Mario provided us with a lot of historical context for the places we visited, and steered us to delicious food. It was an excellent start for our trip to Portugal.
