We chose to book Alex for a day tour on our recent cruise, and were not disappointed. We had a van that was comfortable for the 4 of us, and Alex is quite fluent in English, so understanding is not an issue as it has been in some other ports of call.
He catered our day to our needs, and we decided to visit Sintra and then Lisbon. He first hit some spots in Lisbon on the way before the throngs of crowds hit, such as Belem where the monastery is located, and from where many of the great explorers set sail in search of new discovery. We also made a stop at Pasteis de Belém, but since we had breakfast not long before, be bought some to consume upon our return to the ship with an espresso. They are everything they are hyped to be, and we were glad Alex suggested to bring us there (once again, before the crowds arrived, since they make over 10,000 every day).
Alex brought us to Sintra, which was nice with its small winding streets and shops, but since it was kind of chilly and windy, we voted not to continue up to the Castle of the Moors, where it would be much more so.
We ventured on to Lisbon, and that was a pleasant surprise. One thing that came shining through was Alex's love and pride of his city, and after visiting, it is well-founded. Due to his great time management, we ventured to many areas in the city and gained a new appreciation of its history, its architecture, and its people.
There is no doubt that Alex allowed us to really maximize our time there, and considering what we saw, his expert commentary, suggestions, and friendliness, the comfortable vehicle, and the very reasonable price, I have no doubt that we will use their services upon our return to the Lisbon area, and have no hesitancy in recommending their service.
