Our tour guide was Joao and we had a wonderful full day tour of Lisbon with him. Joao is very knowledable and has a great sence of humour. He is half English so there was plenty of healthy banter about the English and Portugese nations. The only down side to Joao is that he supports Manchester United!!!

“Amazing Day!”

I don’t usually engage with guides feeling like a seasoned traveler, we prefer to explore on our own. But Hugo was recommended by a colleague and we wanted to explore outside of Lisbon in Sintra and the vicinity and a guide made sense. Hugo was so knowledgeable, helpful and a joy to be around all day with the family. He shared a love for European soccer with my boys and his wealth of knowledge on Portugal with my husband and I. The inside scoop on all the best seafood, backdoor pass to the pastries in Belem…definitely worth it. FIVE ++ Stars.

Hi Hugo

Thanks for reaching out. We got back to Canada in the middle of a snowstorm but arrived safely thankfully.

We had a lot of fun with Antonio and it was our pleasure to spend the day with him. He was very kind and accommodating to us. The weather wasn’t cooperating but it still felt like we accomplished a lot because of Antonio’s knowledge.

I will leave a review on TripAdvisor as soon as I can to reflect the positive experience. Thank you and Antonio for a great tour. Portugal is a beautiful country and we would love to visit again.

Kind regards
Daniel
