“Ask Hugo!”

Amazing tour.
We had 2 fantastic experiences with Hugo and his spaceship (that is the Mercedez).
During the wine visit in Alentejo Hugo knew the history of the region and a lot about wine.
On the second trip, Hugo took us to Sintra, Cascais and and the Estoril casino.
The best thing about Hugo is that he always knows a interesting facts about the visit.
So don’t miss the tours and ASK HUGO!!!!

Our guide Carlos did a fantastic job showing us Pena Palace, the palace grounds, the Moorish Castle, and downtown Sintra. He started the day by discussing with us what we were interested in seeing, and customized the tour to fit our interests. He was extremely knowledgeable about everything we saw, and very personable and friendly as well. The restaurant was excellent, and we really felt like a Portuguese

We could not have made a better choice.

When we booked the tours we were a bit curious about what the day would be like, although Hugo was always very quick and efficient to answer our doubts.
Without a doubt it was an excellent choice, whether it be the tour and the great refit we had, in a very local place ..

Thank you so much
