“Great for Families”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 1, 2013

We had a wonderful day tour of Sintra and back to Lisbon with Vitor in late August. We were traveling with two young children (ages 6 and 3) and our guide was extremely accomodating to our schedule and willing to adjust plans as needed. We had some extra time before needing to go to the airport, so Vitor suggested a local tile store in Portugal as well as a simple, local restaurant nearby that was much better than many of the expensive restaurants we visited while there. Overall I would highly recommend this company for their knowledge of the area and flexibilty.

“Jose is fantastic”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 27, 2013

We went with Jose for a half day tour of Lisbon and a full day to Sintra and the coast . The tours fantastic. We usually rent a car in Europe but we never could have found the interesting places he took us! He is so knowledgable about history and local customs. He even stopped at a famous bakery so my husband could run in and try the famous pastry.

Jose will customize your trip to fit your schedule and needs. I had a sprained ankle. So thoughtful. No problem.

Jose speaks beautiful English and has a great sense of humor. Fun and informative tour!!!!!!

Dear Marj,

Thank you very much for your very sympathetic comment about our tour. It was an excellent day. You’re a wonderfull couple and it was really a pleasure to met you and to have the opportunity to learn more about other countries. It's amazing how you know almost the whole world. For me, the anecdote of the day was when I said that you could have a very nice meal, meat or fish, or just a snake…bad accent to snack… you looked so astonished that I soon realized I had said something wrong… :-)

I hope to see you again soon.

Best regards,

José Pais

“Premium indeed!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 19, 2013

We were pampered by Jose for a full day tour at Sintra. The scenic drive on the western coast of Portugal on the most comfortable wheels was simply priceless. Jose was a superb guide and host, never falling short in sharing the rich information about Portugal. Time was at our own pace, Jose was very patient and we never had to rush. For lunch, we requested for a place non tourist. And we were treated with a scrumptious seafood meal. To be honest, it was the best meal we had in Portugal. We completed the tour as planned and Jose even sent us back to hotel right on time as requested. It was an amazing trip. My wife and I had a wonderful time. Thank you Jose.

“Excellent service”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 11, 2013

We enjoyed a fantastic full day tour to Sintra with Jose. He was an excellent guide and made the day so easy to enjoy. We saw many other places of interest too which was a bonus for us. The transport is comfortable and roomy with great air con. Would certainly recommend using them for any travel you need while in Lisbon. He also did our airport transport which again was easy and hassle free. very reliable, professional, courteous and comfortable.

“Meet Portugal at its best!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 6, 2013

We had a family of 3 generations, a total of 8 and all of us saw so much of Portugal without feeling like we were on a "tour". We have traveled extensively and always done sight-seeing on our own..never using a guide over several days because we like to move at our own pace.

Vitor was the best combination of a driver and a guide..how relaxing and vacation-like not to worry about renting a car, following directions, finding the next place. Vitor was born to do this work-he is witty and personable without being intrusive, and well-informed about just about anything you'd like to know. We moved at our own pace...there was not stringent schedule, more an outline for the day. If we found we wanted to spend more time a place A, or not visit place C, no problem, done and done-flexibility was the name of the game.

I would highly recommend using Vitor and his services-stress-free, super fun, and the only left is to enjoy the experience and make memories with your loved ones. He even emailed us a few photos he'd taken of us! Thank you Vitor!

**PS The van was cleaned each day, bottled water for everyone. Roomy and comfortable seating. Driving smooth. Five star hotel, comfortable beds, great place to end each day.
