Great day with Pedro as our guide. We loved Pena Palace and the town of Sintra. It was like being in a storybook. Pedro was informative and very kind. Loved having our own private guide. He knew many tips about how to save time, beat the crowds, where to park and where to eat. We highly recommend taking a private tour. This company was great to work with. Very flexible and great with communication. We highly recommend them and Pedro.

As Lisbon is built on numerous hills and there are lots of uphill and downhill which are not so good for elderly people. I joined their LIsbon and Sintra tour with my dad and sister and we all LOVED it! It is definitely the best way to see Lisbon in a short time. We had Victor as our guide and he’s very funny and knowledgeable and flexible too. He taught us a lot about the history of Portugal and the places we visit and attentive to our requests throughout the journey. Lovely tour and we had an amazing trip in Lisbon. Thank you Jorge and Victor. 🙂

We were in Lisbon for only 4 days but wanted to visit Sintra, Cascais, and Estoril. Jorge’s tour company was highly recommended by our friend in the US so we did not hesitate to book this tour. Our tour guide and driver, Vincent, was knowledgable (as well as humorous). We spent a wonderful day seeing and learning much more than we thought we would! Since this was a private tour, we were able to bend the schedule to be able to walk on our own through the town of Sintra after our visit to the Palace, and wander (and eat gelato) in Cascais. There happened to be a taxi strike in Lisbon on the day we had our tour which caused traffic gridlock. Jorge emailed us the night before to let us know that Vincent would pick us up an hour early to avoid all problems! We recommend this tour company without reservation!!!!

“Excellent tour with Jorge.”

Our family reunion totaled 13 people so Jorge required 2 vehicles. Vehicles and drivers were waiting for us when we departed our cruise ship. Vehicles had WiFi bottled water and were very clean. Departed port and visited Lisbon’ s old section with its narrow streets. Then proceeded to Sintra to tour the National Palace of Sintra. After seeing the palace Jorge allowed us some free time to visit the many shops in the area. Then we drove to a nice restaurant to try some of the typical Portuguese foods. Along the way, Jorge stopped the car to show us the cork trees of Portugal. Jorge then drove us back to Lisbon via Cascais and Esteril. Although the stated time of the tour had ended when we arrived in Lisbon, Jorge insisted on showing us the cathedral which was beautiful. Finally back to the ship in a timely fashion to insure we felt no stress over the ship’s departure time. Best tour of our cruise. Jorge was a professional and knowledgeable guide and excellent driver. Would recommend Jorge hands down to anyone visiting Lisbon.

We went to Lisbon with a local tour agency but had a free n easy day to spend. Hence my wife decided to try walkborder tours as it was highly rated on TripAdvisor… And it turned out rightly so! Hugo was an excellent host with so much knowledge about the country, it’s heritage, local produce n sights worth seeing.

He drove us around in a comfortable Mercedes-Benz mpv, the drive was so smooth even though he was practically talking to us along the time we spent on the road. We went to Fatima, nazare, and obidos.

At every stop, Hugo would explain the stories, myths and history of the place in such colourful narrative even a person like me who takes little interest in history was so captivated by the info he provided. Every discerning question we threw at him he answered so well I was thinking he might be a walking encyclopedia!

He gave us the freedom and choices of places to go, and upon our request brought us to a local diner for lunch which served really good Portuguese cruising at reasonable prices. Definitely not one of those guides waiting to rip at ur pockets at every opportunity.

We felt his sincerity throughout the entire trip, and had such wonderful conversations about beautiful Lisbon. Would definitely recommend him anytime to anyone!
