We booked this tour from Lisbon to visit the town of Obidos and Buddha Eden, the tour also included a visit to the seaside town of Peniche, where we toured a Fort, saw many panoramic vistas and enjoyed a lovely lunch. Our group enjoyed this portion of the tour so much.

Our guide, Marcio was so charming. In addition to the history he shared with us, he also made our tour feel very personal. We spoke of serious topics at the Fort, he shared anecdotes and stories, he also showed us his favorite spot in Peniche, tucked away and hidden in the fishing village. Marcio was also very thoughtful of my mother in law, who uses a cane and modifying the tour for her needs.

I will write separate reviews for the visits to Obidos and Buddha Eden, however they were much more fulfilling because of our guide. In Obidos one can be mesmerized by the charm of the town, but the stories and history shared with us, made our connection stronger. This will always remain a lovely memory of our surprise, last minute trip to Portugal.

And was totally awesome!
I must say that this one of or The best Aquarium today.
It is super clean, friendly, with lots and lots to see.
Short trip from the airport so many visitors spend couple of hours prior to their flights!
Awesome experience

João picked us up from our hostel in Lisbon and kept us entertained the whole way to Peniche where we picked up our surf boards and headed out to the beach. He was super patient and helpful on land and in the water. I couldn't quite stand up in time but the girls got it in no time!

I went to Portugal and wanted to take some surf lessons there so we found out Tugabuddies. So they pick us up in Lisbon and drove through some amazing spots to beautiful Peniche beach to try surfing for the first time for most of us. It was incredible experience and we were all enjoying. After that they took us to some great fish restoran with astonishing view of the ocean and some other places with most amazing cliffs. The pictures were beautiful and our souls were fulfilled with we joy and happiness. Really great experience. Thanks to Joao and his buddies. Hope to see you again there :) 🍻🍻🍻

I spent two days with Joao and his friends and i felt like home with them, i felt them like my friends and travel partners in a genuine way. They know perfectly how and what to enjoy in this part of Portugal. Being with them is one of these experiences you want to have when you are travelling,, out of classic tourist tours

I spend great days with my friends in Portugal. Pedro and João showed us places I think we would never have found on our own! They showed us amazing rocks and great surfer areas. I learned a lot about the area and I would love to do more trips with them!
