    This was our first trip to Portugal and we only had a few days so we squeezed in a one day Lisbon and Sintra private tour but honestly, it should have been a three days trip because there are so much to see in this beautiful country. Our guide Manuel was incredibly enthusiastic and passionate in showing us the best of what Lisbon and Sintra has to offer in all its cultural and architectural grandeur ! Our most favorite and memorable places , besides the absolutely stunning Palace of Queluz which is truly a hidden gem amongst the many more famous palaces, he also took us to Praia das Macas (Apple Beach) a charming town situated on the Sintra coastline. We spent a relaxing afternoon gazing at the vast ocean and waiting each moment to see the powerful waves of the Atlantic Ocean hitting against the concrete frame of the vast ocean pool to make giant splashes coming right at us. With the warm ocean winds blowing in our faces, we could really have easily spent the whole day there ! We have a lot to thank our guide for, Manuel has an immense ability to connect with people and he is so passionate to share his knowledge of his beautiful country, not only its natural beauty, it’s history and culture, but also it’s music ! We ended our day sitting in his car listening to some beautiful Portuguese music ! For one day, we were absolutely spoilt !

    Elvira gave us a wonderful tour of the highlights of Lisbon. Her knowledge of the different styles of architecture and history of Portugal was enlightening. The highlight was the pomp and circumstances of the President welcoming the envoy from Nigeria in Belem. Sinatra was charming but very crowded due to cruise ship visitors. Timing is everything!

    Nossa excursão feita pela empresa do Hugo foi simplesmente maravilhosa, curtimos bastante Portugal e ter um contato maior com a cultura e a história dos lugares que passamos. Todos os guias foram muito atenciosos e prestativos, então aqui vai um agradecimento ao Carlos, Antônio e os dois Manuel que acompanharam-nos aos nossos passeios. Eram todos bem informados relatando da história dos lugares de forma clara e com bom humor. Tivemos um problema com um restaurante de show de fado, mas a empresa prontalmente acolheu nossa insatisfação e resolveram.

    Uma visita da família trouxe nosso pai idoso, que usa cadeira de rodas para viagens longas, mas usa muletas para distâncias mais curtas e consegue subir alguns degraus com ajuda. Encontramos a Walkborder Tours como um fornecedor que também ofereceu transporte da cadeira de rodas dobrável e deu a nós, nossos irmãos e paizinho um passeio e um dia maravilhoso. O atendimento foi muito bom, desde a preparação e planejamento do dia com o Hugo, até a presteza do nosso motorista Carlos e suas dicas e informações e conversas interessantes, até o carro confortável com espaço para nós oito adultos e a condução segura do Carlos. Claro, a viagem foi ótima: Queluz, Sintra (nosso foco escolhido), Cabo da Roca, com passeios maravilhosos pelo campo e via Cascais de volta a Lisboa. Altamente recomendado!

    My expectations were to visit the Jerónimos monastery which is describe in the booking part of the trip, however I did get to tour it. Instead we went to Sintra. Our guide did not come in the castle, but other guides did and we were able to catch pieces of the castle stories. Carlos our guide was charismatic but the booking was received by Hugo Goncalvez. Carlos is a subcontractor for Hugo. Hugo forgot to noticed us that the planned attractions In Lisbon (monastery) was closed on Mondays. How would I know coming from another country that the items that I booked where not available? If informed I would have chance the date. I wasted my day without achieving my expectations, although the subcontractor Carlos made us have a good time with what we have. It is a shame that the booking site take advantage of tourist unaware of the cultural differences. What was described was not delivered
