        Fabulous day trip from Lisbon with Bruno
        Bruno was an amazing guide and made the outing super informative, easy and fun! Loved getting to see all the highlights - especially the Quinta da Regaleira.

        A great day trip
        The tour was great, Luiz, our guide was very helpful, attentive, kept entertaining everyone with interesting local tidbits spiced with humour. We were advised not to pay for certain things, that wouldn’t worth it, and seeing others being miserable for not much, we are glad we took Luiz’s advice. He recomended a great breakfast place, and an even better restaurant at the end of the trip, with amazing seafood and sangria (that’s just what we ordered, they had every type of food and drinks) right next to Cascais bay. We had a great time.

        Great trip
        The trip was very well organised. Our guide Luiz was incredibly knowledgeable, funny and helpful. He also showed us a lot of local spots that serve yummy yet affordable food. It was quite a walk but definitely bearable if you’re in comfy shoes. Highly recommend!

        A great way to have a great day in Lisbon
        Bruno was a fantastic guide. He was very knowledgeable, pleasant and passionate about what he does. He answered all our questions and was very helpful with all the relevant history which bought everything we saw to life. He was clear with the agenda for the day and kept us on time. We had a wonderful experience and would thoroughly recommend Bruno and Cooltours. We had a great day.

        A worthy trip
        The views of Pena Palace were absolutely stunning. It kind of sucked there were a lot of people there but what can you do. They came for the stunning views too 😅. Our tour guide was knowledgeable and fun to be around. He was a good sport and very patient. I would recommend setting up a tour with this company.

        A Special Time In Fatima
        Our driver, Nuno, delivered us everywhere right on schedule and, in the process, provided us with a detailed background on the history of Fátima. He made sure we understood when and where we were to meet at each stop. He was very courteous and knowledgeable. We enjoyed our time with him and learned a lot of important information about the events that occurred at Fatima. He also took time to share information about significant locations we passed by while on the way to and from Lisbon.

        Amazing!
        Absolutely perfect! Probably one of the best tours I've taken (Knights Templar and Tomar). Pick up was clear and tour guide Hugo M was great. The castle was picturesque and I enjoyed the little boat ride to get there. The Convent of Christ was nice as well. I learned a lot and enjoyed being off the beaten path. Highly recommend. Timing was good and opportunities for snack/restroom were on point. Great experience.

        Our guide Leo was a great host with a wealth of knowledge about the various spots we visited and he added humor which made the entire ride very enjoyable. The lunch recommendation was fantastic. I definitely recommend Leo for next event in Portugal.

        Awesome tour
        The tour was awesome. Leo, our guide was/is a history teacher and was a wealth of knowledge on the Knights Templar! He was a great guide!! Doing a small tour allowed for a non rushed day and to be a more personal experience.

        Marina Bravo- Sintra
        Marina Bravo was our tour guide. She was friendly and patient with the group. She possessed sound knowledge of the subject matters and historical facts of the sites visited; her presentation was delivered in a coherent, clear and articulated manner. The itineraries of the trip was enjoyable, although more time allocated for meals is welcomed. Overall, a commendable experience!!😊

      If you have a chance to do this tour, do it! This takes y out into the country of Portugal and away from the crowds of Sinatra. It is a wonderful scenic and historical tour, made all the better if Ricardo takes it as your guide. His knowledge and passion for the areas and places that you visit is wonderful. It makes a great tour even better. The convent in Tomar us spectacular. In many travels I haven’t seen anything like it. I really recommend this highly, especially if you would like to do something a little different. Without Ricci”s knowledge I really would not have understood how important the Knight Templar’s and their followers were to the history of Portugal and modern day Portugal.
