Andre was an awesome tour guide! He made us feel comfortable from the start, was incredibly knowledgeable about the locations we visited, and provided great tips of other locations to visit and places to eat.

Overview of your tour
In the morning, depart Lisbon with your guide and head to Óbidos. This small town is built inside a castle’s walls, and you will love its cobbled streets and colourful houses. Walk with your guide in Óbidos as he tells you about the events in Óbidos. Visit Santa Maria’s Church and admire the works of a famous female painter that lived in Óbidos. After your guided walk in Óbidos, have a taste of Ginjinha, our favourite cherry liquor and enjoy some free time to explore the numerous shops of Óbidos.
