João is an amazing guide - very friendly and knowledgeable. He worked with us to customize a wonderful afternoon of wine tastings and sight seeing. Picked us up at the hotel, has a nice van for the transport with A/C. Stops at several wineries and vineyards, sets up tastings, and nice snacks. Highly recommend and would do again! Thank you!

We availed of Lisbon Sightseeing Full Day Private Tour. There were 11 of us, 3 of whom had reduced mobility. Upon booking, we were contacted by Joao to explain what we can and may not be able to do given our situation. He was very considerate. We were able to come up with an itinerary that suited our senior family members and at the same time, maximized the places that we wanted to see in Lisbon. Joao, as expected from a tour guide, shared his knowledge about the different places in Lisbon. What sets him apart from the other guides is his passion. We all felt that Joao reallly put his heart into what he was doing. He also put in an extra mile for helping us with the wheelchairs and recommending a very dinner spot.
