“Yes We Tour is the Best!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 30, 2013

We visited Lisbon in July and only had two full days to tour the city and surrounding area. My sister recommended I use Joao from Yes We Tour and am I glad we did.

I told Joao exactly what we liked to do when visiting a city and he put together a fantastic itinerary that matched perfectly. Without going into detail, the first day we walked around Lisbon and saw the main attractions. On the second day we drove to Sintra, hiked up to the Pena Palace, and came back through Cascais and Estonil.

He is very personable and patient and a pleasure to be around. He picked us up from the train station and took us to the airport at the end of our stay, always on time.

He knows the history very well, speaks 4 languages, and was even an expert on the plant life in the parks in Lisbon and the forested areas we hiked through in Sintra.

He arranged our public transportation including the cable car and picked out great spots for lunch.

I can't say enough good about Yes We Tour, and would recommend them to anybody visiting Lisbon.

“A Fabulous Experience”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed June 20, 2013

My only regret is that it has taken some time to get around to writing this review! I traveled to Portugal with friends about this time last year, and had the most wonderful experience! This was in no small part due to Joao Parracho Filipe and his family! First of all, if Portugal has not been on your list of "must see" countries...you must change that immediately. Not only is the country beautiful and full of history, but the Portugese people are wonderful! We made our "home base" in Sintra for our first week, and Joao met us at the airport. He and his family made us feel incredibly welcome. We looked forward to seeing them every day upon our return. In addition, they were so knowledgeable and helpful as we were planning our itinerary...and gave us excellent advice about sites, and restaurants, and experiences! Our trip to Evora with Joao as our tour guide was amazing. We learned so much about the country, the history...he helped us order the most amazing food for lunch and arranged a winery tour! Basically we left Portugal feeling like we were leaving behind good friends...please make Portugal a "must do" on your list, and be sure to work with Yes We Tour...you could not possibly be in better hands!

Thnak you for your review. It's very rewarding to leave such a good impression on our clients. So good that we consider them friends for the future!

The Evora tour is a winner. Evora and the Alentejo region have been considered the upcoming destination by the NY times travel magazine for its authenticity and affordable prices comparing to Tuscany.

We are also very proud of our work at Villa Açucena B&B. New beds, linens and lounge chairs are on the way and it has been a challenge to combine all of these with vintage furniture and mahogany floors.

Looking forward to have you back in Sintra!

“Lisbon City Tour”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed April 12, 2013

My wife and I recently spent an amazing day sightseeing in Lisbon with one of the most knowledgeable, interesting and personable guides, Joao Parrado Filipe, while our cruise ship was in port for the day. Since my wife is partially disabled, Joao met us on the pier with a folding wheel chair and comfortable private car we requested, and showed us the historical, cultural and religious sights we requested to see in this beautiful city.. Without asking, Joao took charge of the wheelchair on the hilly streets of Lisbon, which enabled me to to enjoy all the sightseeing at the attractions we visited, take pictures and enjoy the experience.

When we return to Europe in 2015 we are planning to see more of Portugal and without hesitation will again contact "Yes We Tour" and request Joao's services for our Portugal Sightseeing.

Thank you for your review! It was a pleasure to guide and help you around the streets of Lisbon. There is a lot to do and see in a single day so we understand how important it was to make the most of such a short time.
Yes We Tour will be pleased to welcome you again in 2015 and continue to unveil the sights and sites of beautiful Lisbon.
Best to you and yours,
Yes We Tour team

“BEST TOUR GUIDE FOR OUR Family Vacation in Portugal”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed April 7, 2013

Our family of 2 adults and three teenage children had the good fortune of choosing João Parracho Filipe as our tour guide while we were in Portugal in 2011. For almost 2 weeks Joao kept us interested, informed and wanting more of his encyclopedic knowledge of what Portugal was all about. His tireless energy and enthusiasm was just what we needed to enhance our travel experience. He tailored the tours to match our interests and introduced us to important places that are not part of a standard tour. We felt safe and well looked after in an unfamiliar country. Some of the highlights of our tour included: Lisbon, Sintra, Pena Palace, hiking tour of the Pena Park and National Palace, Cabo da Roca, Cascais, Evora, Monsaraz, the Alentejo and even the Algarve. At one point on our way to a winery, Joao convinced my kids to try authentic Portuguese cuisine. This was amazing considering all these kids eat at home is pasta. João’s warm and engaging personality were endearing to our family, and by the end of our trip he was another member of our family. Even years later, we still regularly exchange greetings and keep up to date on each other’s lives. We highly recommend João as an outstanding enthusiastic, knowledgeable tour guide. In all of our years of travelling we have never encountered anyone with João’s joie de vivre.

Thank you for your kind words. It's really rewarding to know that you keep such fond memories of our tours together! Better still...knowing that you appreciated the cuisine and the specialties of Alentejo, definitely a winner for many of our clients, is really important for us as we try to select family run restaurants where locals go.

“Wonderful visit to central Portugal”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed April 7, 2013

We spent 4 wonderful days touring central Portugal (Sintra, Evora, Obidos, Coimbra, Fatima, and other towns) with Joao Parrado Filipe. We were a group of 6---2 grandparents, 2 parents, and 2 late teens---and we ALL enjoyed the trip and Joao. We flew into the Lisbon airport, where we were met by Joao, a gracious and nice man,and taken to our hotel. He then picked us up each morning between 8:30-9:00 am in his van, and drove us to the sights that we had agreed upon for the day. His english is extremely good, and his knowledge of the history and importance of the sights was terrific. Each day, he took us to lesser known portuguese restaurants where he would recommend foods for us to sample. He capped off our wonderful trip by recommending, and arranging for us, a small restaurant in the Alfama where we could hear fado and enjoy a good meal. We had a truly memorable vacation, and we feel that Joao was the main reason.
