About Around Lisbon
Around Lisbon is not your typical Tour Company, as you may have known them. In fact, we don’t like to think of Around Lisbon as a business. It is rather the special life project of two friends, who wanted to develop a friendly local company to cater to like-minded people from all over the world. Our goal is to be your "local friends" who help you enjoy Lisbon and Portugal to the fullest. That makes our day too.

Well well what can i say.  Of all tours i had in my lifetime, this one is surely unique to the bones. This was our last tour before heading back home and he made it very memorable. We had a blast from the start to the end. He will be surely be missed by us. Much love and a big salute. André is one hell of a guide. Friendly, open hearted and most important genuine. Every checkpoint was a different experince and the letters WOW was always around the corner. The 4 x 4 jeep will take you from smooth cruising on the roads, downhills and uphills  next to the beautiful sea of the atlantic. You will also be passning through interesting wine orcids and much more delighted sights on the country side. And switching to off roading adventure kicked the thrill up a notch and it felt like a roller coaster. It was mad fun, i'll tell you that. You will have some short stops during the trip for lunch, try the water, coffe break and to get a chance to explore areas by foot consider as hidden gems selected by André. This should be on your " to do list " if you are planning to spend your vacation in Lisbon. You won't be disappointed and André will damn make sure it won't happen.

This was a perfect day trip from Lisbon. We started the trip on time and the pickup was in a very convenient and central location. Our driver/guide Diogo was fun and personable so I knew from the get-go that this was going to be a great trip. We were also only 8 people in the trip, so we were able to get to know everyone on the drive to Peniche. From Peniche we took a short boat ride to Berlenga, which gave everyone the opportunity to chat some more and take in the ride. On Berlenga we toured around the island and learned about its interesting history, stopped for some drinks and lunch (the seafood was delicious), and went on a smaller boat ride around the island's caves. We ended the trip by relaxing on the main beach and doing some snorkelling. The island itself is stunningly beautiful and my only regret was not being able to stay longer. Would highly recommend this trip to anyone looking to get away for a day.

Rafael was Great! We set up easy communications before we even arrived in Portugal. He arrived early, was humble, and humorous. He CERTAINLY knows Sintra, and the local history. He navigated narrow roads masterfully, and his descriptions of all the palaces we saw/visited were spot on. He took us to lunch to a cafe in his neighborhood for a local experience. The afternoon along the coast was also great. My sister, brother-in-law and I all agreed this was one of the best tours any of us have had.

Our guide did a spectacular job. He was very knowledgeable about tiles and the history/culture of Portugal. The artisans in the workshop we're very kind and professional.

Our guide, Nunno, was great! He knew the area very well and was very friendly and helpful. We are an older couple and he gave us extra time to get around.
