We had a fabulous day with Filipa! Our family (two seniors, one adult and one child) did a private tour to Sintra. We explored Pena Palace, the town of Sintra, Cabo da Roca, Cascais, and drove along the coast back to Lisbon. Filipa was incredible from our first communications to the end of the tour. She was knowledgeable and personable and we really enjoyed all of our conversations with her. She was engaging and flexible and all of us had a great day. She went out of her way to make the day fun for my 9-year-old. Highly recommended!!

We made two wonderful trips to Sintra and Fatima. Our guide and driver, Andre, led us professionally through places of incredible beauty. Andre speaks English very well, clearly and with a lot of humor. He also has extensive knowledge of History, Geography and Art. The trips were a real delight thanks to Andre. We will happily return to Lisbon and call on the services of our guide, Andre, for new trips.
Working with Filipa to create a tour for the five of us in our party, we worked on a two-day tour that took us around many great sites inside and outside of Lisbon, while working in some very good wine tasting. Since this was a first time in Portugal, we felt we wanted to get the most of our time and we soooo many pictures to remember our visit for some time. Our tour guide was the main reason our time there was complete. He seemed well prepared for our days out, was quite knowledgeable (and patient) answering all of our questions, and really went out of his way to make us all feel comfortable in Lisbon and the towns we visited. Now we know so much more about the region, and looking forward to a return trip.
