Spent three days in Portugal exploring Sesimbra, Arabida, and Sintra with Look Around Tours. When visiting a new place, I try and find a tour guide who will show me things I wouldn't be able to find on my own - Andre exceeded in this regard. From the casual stops at local coffee shops, to the amazing meal at Isais, to the awe-inspiring views Azenhas Do Mar, I felt that I got to see the true character of Portugal, which is so much richer than what you see in the travel guide. It was an experience I will never forget.

Logistically, Andre was very punctual and accommodating with our schedule, taking lot of the stress out of the planning, which I really appreciated. You can trust Andre to maximize your time.

Finally, both Andre and Natasha gave the trip a very personal touch, which you don't often find in larger tour groups. They are both very genuine people, who I will happily explore Portugal with again.

We had 2 great days with you. One we spent in the capital with seeing Befica-Stadium and nice places there. The other one was a trip to a secret beach which we could enjoy alone. Both trips we can recommend. Thanks for all the memories you gave us.

Andre M****** is was highly unprofessional and inappropriate on this tour.

This person made highly sexist comments all the way through the tour whilst pointing at my breasts as closely as possible.

I recieved the worst injury of my hiking career on a pretty standard summit ON LEVEL GROUND on the way out of the park with this company, questions still remain as to how I managed to 'slip' on a boulder on a hot day, however, a seasoned hiker will tell that a guide should know every danger spot on a walk they profess they've done hundreds of times before, partcularly one that causes this much damage. I am now scarred and have had to undergo rigorous training.

He then insists on taking a photo of me clearly in pain with my bad knee and posts it on his company's facebook page.

It gets even worse, my knee was very badly damaged and bloody, so this tour guide then decides to hit my knee repeatedly with his jeep's glove compartment door despite my insistence that he stop. And bullies me into giving him a 5 star review, whilst manipulatiing his way into my hotel to blag some new business.

I get back to England and my friends, immediately concerned, demand that I take down my 5 star review down and contact the Look Around Tours facebook page requesting that they take down the highly offensive picture of me in excruciating pain.

This company then harassed me, they emailled me to demand that I take down the review, and I've recieved a phone call on my work number from Portugal, a number they weren't given.

I have approached the Portuguese tourist board about this person and they went straight to the authorities, so I feel there could be some history there. Andre M****** certainly came across as an abusive personality with myself, the next time I will most certainly go with a certified company, please do the same!

Hello, Ms. MrMedian. Thanks for your review. It is very important for us to know different opinions of our clients. It allows us to grow and make our service better and better. For us it is a big pity you changed your opinion about our work from the 5 stars to 1, and in the end found our work so unprofessional and abusive. Your first review, which you had left next day after hike, was full of the positive emotions, the same like the comment of the Grace T, who was in the same activity with you and wrote the review on TripAdvisor 17 of April of 2018. The hiking which we did is one of the most difficult of our products. And, of course, the cut on the knee could spoil your appreciation about the tour. We hope now you feel yourself good and if you will back to Portugal we wish you a better experience. Best Regards, André Marquês and Natasha Borkova – owners of Look Around Tours

We had a beautiful hike to visit the Praia Baleeira with our team, the guides were very easy going and cool and they told us about the area - but not too much. It was very relaxing, thank you Look Around Tours!

If you want to see the best of Arrabida National Park and the surrounding area you have to book Andre Marques and his private cultural tours company. Very good price for value. You can make any agreements with Andre what you like to see. We wanted to see badly the Dinosaur foot prints but the tour we booked did not included this option. Then I asked Andre if we can do the foot prints and that was no problem at all. For little extra (10 euros) Andre brought us right to the place. It was really amazing. Andre has also lot of knowledge about his country and its history. Also about the nature. Really great Andre!!!It is a pity that it was our last day in Sesimbra. But who knows. Maybe next time!!
WWW.LOOKAROUNDTOURS.COM is the site you need!!!
Thank you Andre!!!

If you are looking for an unforgettable experience then look no further than Look around tours. With Andre you just don't get a simple hiking tour but a real adventure revealing the heart of the Arrabida region. Andre was not only knowledgeable about the local vegetation, knowing the area like the back of his hand, but was also sensitive to the physical capabilities and emotional needs of our group. It was clear he really loved and was passionate about sharing about his region. This tour is not for the faint hearted but once you have done it you will never regret it. The sights are beautiful. Physically challenging but with the wonderful peace of the sumit taking the hectic out of everything, we felt like we were on top of world..quite literally.

Was a pleasure to got people to "surmount" themselves, either physically or emotionally. It was a magnificent day with a fighter group, sharing all my knowledge for you, my clients and Mother Nature, who welcomed us in one of the most beautiful places in Mediterranean Europe. Thanks for your coment Grace!

From the moment we were collected from our hotel we felt we were with friends on a trip.Natasha has a great knowledge of her surroundings and was constantly giving nugets of information all day long. The tile factory was interesting but by far the best is the 2 vine yards we visited the Bacolhoa is very modern with an art collection that is very interesting.After the vine yards we went to visit a castle and then finally on the way home we finished with a visit to the Christ the Redemer .
It was an excellent day and very good value.

This tour was the highlight of our anniversary Trip. Rosario was an amazing tour guide. we didn't have the best weather on the first half of the trip, but her knowledge of the area and her tips and suggestions made us feel like we were still getting an amazing experience. The wineries that we visited were amazing; they were both so different and allowed us to get different experiences at each one. take time to really enjoy the views they are second to none.

Andre is one of the best guides we had. We had a number of different interests on the tour, history, music, nature and he could cater for all of the questions. He picked us up at the hotel, gave us treats and answered all questions we had. Very recommended. Music on the tour was amazing and he was flexible, reacted to the weather and was awesome
