    Great day walking, chatting and sightseeing with Ana Paula. This was my first private walking tour and it felt like spending a day with an old friend. I highly recommend this tour!

    Ana was terrific. Friendly, easy going and extremely insightful as we walked around. Certainly visited interesting places we would have otherwise dismissed. She added so much to a great day and being a small group (4) was a definite plus. Strongly recommended. Thank you again Ana - you were brilliant.

    Ana Paula was een geweldige gids! Ze hield rekening met wat ik wou doen en gaf goede, duidelijke uitleg. Ze is een heel gezellige persoon die de tour en de dag onvergetelijk maakt!

    Jose customized a wonderful day for us! He is charming, knowledgeable and flexible. We loved wandering around Sintra, listening to the interesting and historic stories about the sites. We had a fabulous lunch in a local place and spent a bit of time at Boca de Roja. A spectacular day that won't be forgotten.

    Hemos disfrutado de una magnífica guía (Blanca L R), que ha conseguido que las dos horas y media se nos hayan hecho cortas. Muy interesante e instructiva. Absolutamente recomendable.

    Superbe visite avec Ana Paula. Très cool. Visite bien documentée sur l’histoire du Portugal, l’architecture. Nous avons déambulé dans des quartiers pittoresques, riches en histoire. Elle parle très bien français. Je recommande.
