Outstanding customized tour from Lisbon to Sintra
Rui is an exceptional guide. He is knowledgeable, humble, reliable and so passionate about the area.He took us to the major attractions and on some back roads of Sintra telling us interesting facts and fascinating stories that made the facts come alive. On the way back to Lisbon he also went out of his way to point out other areas of interest and answer our questions about Portugal. It was such an authentic and unique tour. I recommend touring with West Vagabond Tours (Rui) in the highest terms possible.
Mystic & Romantic Sintra: Fully Guided Day Tour from Lisbon
Highly recommended!!
Rui is a fantastic tour guide! Caring, knowledgeable, and well-rounded. I did two tours with him: a one-day surfing trip and Sintra-Cabo da Roca - Cascais. Both left me amazed! If you're looking for something cozy and tailored just for you, then West Vagabond Tours is exactly what you need!
Mystic & Romantic Sintra: Fully Guided Day Tour from Lisbon
Local guide, local knowlege – passionate about local culture, food and history
We were lucky to have Joao take a couple of Australians to see Tapada and Mafra for a full day outing. We were picked up without fuss at out Lisbon apartment and we must say he drove very responsibly so we felt very much at ease! As well as the main attractions Joao had some quirky little places to drop by to add to the experience. We had a sumptuous "typical' lunch at a place we would never have tracked down ourselves. Our main aim was to see the Palace at Mafra (the name-sake of my hometown Maffra in Australia) which is a remarkable building, again with its own character and stories. Joao had been an excellent and attentive host with broad interests and knowledge and we will look forward to more adventures, meals and story sharing with him.

Local Knowledge & Passionate Guide
My husband and I wanted to do a short excursion outside of Lisbon, and we were very lucky that we had heard about Joao. We wanted to do a short trip to Obidos, and it was very easy to arrange with him. He was responsive, punctual and organised. In addition to Obidos, Joao recommended that we visit Peniche as well - we appreciated this recommendation, since the place was beautiful and not something that we would have otherwise known about (even though we partially live in Lisbon). If we had more time, we also would have liked to visit a vineyard that Joao recommended. His English is excellent, and he is overall very informative. We liked that he let us be "independent" and wander around Obidos, stop for food, sightseeing, etc - the tour was informative but not too rigid and formal.
Day Tour to Medieval Óbidos with Wine Tasting

Walking tour, Portuguese dinner & Fado Vadio experience
I highly recommend this tour – Lissabon from a whole new sight... Audric, the guide, had plenty of interesting background information about the history of fado, Portugal's history to share and gave me useful tips on where to get the best meals in town and listen to fado without paying touristic prices. Also, he showed me great street art venues I would have never come across by chance...so Audric, thx a lot and looking forward seeing you again the next time I'm in this breathtaking city...! Cheers, Martin
Culture & Street Art tour of Mouraria
This tour was amazing, particularly our guide Audric. He showed me unbelievable street art, almost all of which I would never have found myself. Friendly, knowledgeable. Ask for Audric. He's awesome!

Amazing tour!
My friends and I booked the "Random Lisbon Zen" tour in Lisbon with City Guru and had such a great time! It was our second time in Lisbon and we were searching for something different to do. They´re very friendly and professional guides, gave us a lot of useful information about the city, and learn so much about amazing places in Lisbon that we wouldn´t even imagine to discover on our own. Highly recommended!
