We booked a tour via Viator with Week Break Tours. Our communication with Week Break Tours was excellent - they addressed every need and concern. We had planned a half day tour to Mafra to see the amazing, massive palace, however 2 weeks before the tour, my sister-in-law broke her ankle - a big game changer. I emailed via Viator, Week Break Tours and asked could we still visiting Mafra. Week Break Tours investigated the facilities and even offered to get a wheelchair, but we couldn't overcome the steps. Week Break Tours offered options and were very flexible. I was very pleased with their service. Based on my communication with them, I would highly recommend the company.

We had a wonderful day with Francisco in Sintra and surrounding areas. He gave us great advice, helped us avoid the crowds, and was very smart. His car is very nice and he is a really smart guy. He does a great job of gauging his audience by pacing the trip in a great way.

My friend and I took a private tour with Week Break Tours and it was unbelievable. We had a great time and our tour guide Francisco was the best tour guide ever! I can’t rave enough about how fun and interesting this tour was. I will remember it for a lifetime!

Richard was absolutely great ! In a short time, he took us to a lot of important landmarks around Lisbon and gave a wide overview of the history of Lisbon and Portugal.
Highly recommend !

Absolutely recommended. Professional, friendly and very reliable. He is very knowledgeable and helpful. We enjoyed both his service and the company. Everything went very smoothly from picking us from the airport to dropping us at the airport (at 3 in the morning)

Probably one of the best tour services we had.

For sure we recommend him and for sure we will use him again.

While planning for our trip, we were originally going to do Sintra by ourselves. Take the train from Lisbon and use the bus to get around there. We had hoped that by getting an early start we could see everything we wanted to get to. However, as our trip neared, we read a number of comments about how busy Sintra is already and it was only expected to get more crowded as the summer goes on. At that point we decided it was probably best to do a guided tour to optimize our time and maximize what we can see in the one day we had to see Sintra.

Enter Francisco and Week Break Tours. The day when from potentially hectic and stressful to relaxing and informative. We had already visited Cascais earlier in our trip so Francisco was able to accommodate our request to alter the default trip. We also let him know that we're not opposed to getting an early start if that helps. Below is a brief outline of what we were able to see on our tour. (This review is already pretty long so I chose not to really review the sights themselves, there is plenty of other information available about them specifically)

The day started at 8:15 am with Francisco picking up our family of five at the door of our Airbnb in a comfortable van with plenty of space for all five of the family members. With the early start, we were well on our way out of Lisbon before traffic slowed us down.

First stop was Pena Palace. To free up time for other sites, we chose not to do the tour inside. Our visit was a perfect blend of guided tour with information and some 'free' time to wander around and take a million pictures. It was a bit foggy for part of our visit but I found it added a little mystic to the palace.

Second stop was the Moorish Castle. We walked from Pena Palace to the Moorish Castle and Francisco pointed out various sites along the way. We spent a little time climbing the walls, admiring the views and again... taking a million pictures.

After this it was time to drive back to Sintra. Here we had lunch, wandered the streets a bit. After lunch we stopped by a small bakery/coffee shop for a coffee/juice and some pastries. To our surprise it wasn't a pastel de nata, but two other types of traditional pastries which were delicious.

Next stop, Quinta da Regaleira. We took a pleasant walk from Sintra to this next palace. We toured both the interior of the palace as well as the magnificent gardens. Once again, a million pictures later and we headed back to town to the van for a drive to our next palace.

Final palace of the day was Monserrate Palace. It is much harder to get here and was also a driving factor in getting a guided tour of Sintra. Another stunning garden and palace.

The plan was to make one more quick stop at Cabo da Roca and see the western most point of continental Europe. However along the drive there we encountered a traffic jam where a bus and car collided at a sharp turn. Having no other way over the mountain except for an hour plus detour we decided it was time to head back to Lisbon.

Return trip back to Lisbon went smoothly and were were dropped back off where we started.

There is no way we would have been able to visit all these places without the help of Francisco. We would have lost time figuring out where to go, how to get from place to place and what are the important things to see. In addition, we got so much more out of what we saw by having someone explain the history and significance of so many sights.

If you haven't realized by now, I'll make it explicit. If you are looking for a tour in Portugal, give Francisco and Week Break Tours a call.

Thank you very much for your kind words. It was a pleasure to show you this part of my country. Too bad about Cabo da Roca, but some circumstances are really uncontrollable. Hope to see you again when you return. Thanks once more.

It is an impressive building. One disappointment was that use of the WC was limited to ticket holders. This miserable policy contrasts the policy in other locations in this country.

Hello Amir, Thank you for your review. Nonetheless i believe you may have made a mistake since this fact that you mention about a building and WC policy and all has nothing to do with us, the tour provider. We are not responsible for the policies of the attractions and honestly issuing a low review for something that we don't own, provide or have control over seems totally out of purpose. Nevertheless, as we always aim for excellence in our services, we are totally open to reading your words regarding the tour. Best Regards

Francisco was one of the better guides we have had ever.
His knowledge and expertise made this tour a very interesting way to get acquainted with this beautiful city and its history.
He was also so kind to us as I have a knee problem, and he paced the walking parts accordingly.
I would highly recommend him and this tour.
