    From our first communication with Bruno he was excellent. Staying on top of our concerns and questions in a timely manner. He was a great listener and molded our day to fit our requests, and brought up issues that we could face if we did this versus that. Which helped alot! He created a timeline that allowed us to visit the places that were most important to us, including Cabo de Roca, downtown Sintra, Quinta da Regaleira and Monteserrate Palace. He was also able to get us close to the Moorish castle and Pena Palace for photo ops as we didn't want to actually visit them. During our visit to downtown Sintra he treated us at Piriquita, a small local pastry shop. What we loved about Bruno was his breadth of knowledge about the places we did visit. Turns out Bruno was a history major and his love of history shines through. Because I have some knee issues I took a break at Quinta da Regaleira while he and my spouse went into the well. My spouse pointed out to me how much he learned about the location from Bruno, which made the experience even much better for him. He made us feel very safe during our day together, which when your traveling is so very important. We highly recommend using Bruno for any of your adventures in Portugal. On our next visit we will definitely look at using his services again. Our day with Bruno was one of the highlights of our vacation to Portugal.

    Luis was fantastic! Deeply knowledgeable, obviously proud, and eager to share. He listened to our interests and tailored the tour accordingly, spending extra time to show us off the beaten path spots including an amazing view of the coastline from Lisbon toward Porto. He also shared favorite restaurants and suggestions for our other destinations in Portugal.

    We enjoyed our tour so much. Sofia is a Renaissance woman who speaks knowledgeably about most anything--in our case--not only ancient history and Moorish architecture, but also botany and whatever the study of butterflies is. A highlight of our trip. If I ever return to Sintra I'll be signing up for another tour with Sofia, to guide us to the other parts of Sintra that we missed. (So much to see there!)

    Silvia, was bang on time, and from the start was very friendly. She has great knowledge about Sintra and the Pina palace, but knew lots about Lisbon too. She gave us a great recommendation for lunch and even called ahead and booked us a table and good job she did as it was very busy and rightly so as the tapas was amazing! We then went to most westerly point in Europe which was lovely but very windy. Then our last stop was Cascais, which as she said is like the Portuguese rivière. She will make the tour what ever you want. I would definitely recommend her and would book her again.

    Bruno is one of the best guides we have ever had. He made our day trip to Sintra a joy from the moment he picked us up at our hotel in Lisbon, until he returned us there in the afternoon. Sintra is almost always very crowded and Bruno knows how to structure the day and how to avoid most of the crowds so that you can enjoy your time with him.

    Our favourite part was travelling with a local guide who knew both the logistics of getting where we wanted to go, who was knowledgeable about the history and who wasn’t afraid to individualize the tour to our needs

    We had an amazing day with Bruno. He knew all the little ins and outs of Sintra to avoid crowds. My favorite was Reglieaterra( sp? ) Bruno knew so much about that place that we were sure others were not seeing. Bruno loves Sintra and made sure that we did too. He is an amazing tour guide.

    An amazing experience and highly recommend in seeing this beautiful city with Alexandra! She was absolutely delightful and extremely knowledgeable of the history in Lisbon. Highly recommended!

    Really great day visiting Sintra, our guide Rita was really great. Her demeanor, humor, pace, historical knowledge, and connection were perfect and a great example what a great tour guide should be like. The Peña castle was beautiful and very interesting. Rita does all tours around Lisbon and you would not go wrong using her to lead your tour.

    We had a group of eight booked for an entire day van trip with a local name Alexandra M for almost a month. At 11:30 PM the night before our trip sheet canceled without any notification or further communication. Completely unprofessional, completely worthless the company. Stay away and never use their service.
