What people are saying about Estoril

It was our first time in Portugal, and we saw a lot during the few days. The car was really nice and comfortable. Alcides, is a very prepared as a guide, we learned many historical, architectural, cultural novelty and facts. Sintra is beautiful and we loved Cascais too. He was always showed up ready to help our issues. We were in a luxury journey and the guide did whatever is necessary to ensure our happiness and comfort feelings. He exhibits the utmost professionalism with us, even when we had difficulties, with children. He has excellent communication skills, empathetic and we felt, he cared about us. We offer this incredible nice one day journey to everyone, who are in Lisbon. It absolutely worth the money! Thank you so much Alcides!

The tour was excellent primarily because of our Guide, Alcides. He was responsive to all my questions and went out of his way to make sure we were happy and even added extra time at the end of the tour to take us to a couple of spots that were not included in the tour we had booked. He refused to take extra payment for these "add ons". His car was spotless and we liked the tour so much we took another one. I would highly recommend this tour and in particular this guide!

Mario was excellent! Very attentive, great sense of humour As it was a private tour, we made changes specific to our requests. The guide was very knowledgeable. In addition there was “double booking” as the tour is very popular, but the company accommodated our requests and we just started later, which worked out better for us as we were still jet legged. Loved the convenience and the fact that it was specific to us!

We had a great tour with Nuno! He had great recommendations for how to best spend our time, and good advice on how to avoid the crowds and see hidden delights. Nuno was very knowledgeable and we learned new things, including more about the history of the Free Masons. Our van was very nice and comfortable for the long trip. Highly recommend this tour, and choosing the private option!

Experience sailing on the Atlantic Ocean, a happy experience
