11/10 - perfect day with André !
Where to even begin! This was a very special tour and an amazing day :D André was a complete professional meeting me on time in his impeccable, super comfortable Merecedes and being the ultimate local Lisbon guide.

The tour was a whirlwind of excitement kicking off with a super first stop in Sintra. The whole area is absolutely stunning - André recommended we get there early and we were actually the only ones in sight. André knew the place like the back of his hand and set the scene early with some essential history and a stop at an amazing coffee shop for a quick local snack of travesseiro (yep...this was my kind of tour). We headed for Quinta da Regaleira next which was breathtaking and then Monserrate - a surprising and beautifully restored oasis of calm. Honestly I could have spent the whole day just there. After a fresh seafood lunch we went on to Cabo da Roca, the westernmost point of Europe, and Cascais, the glitzy district by the sea. And before you knew it it was time to head home. André offered to do a quick whistlestop tour of Lisbon to finish but I opted to grab a tea with him instead - it was like debriefing with an old friend and a perfect way to end the tour.

I was after a truly local perspective and André was just the man for it. Funny, polite, knowledgeable and an extremely safe driver. He's like the local friend we all wish we had! I'll definitely be contacting him next time I'm in Lisbon. André you made this a truly special day . Thank you for sharing this part of your country with me!

Best Horseback and General Tour without a doubt
say a few. Equally important is the Paulo Guide and the Health of these horses. Before coming to Paul, I will just say that these horses were the healthiest horses from a visual and performative standpoint. That meant a lot to us because we are animal lovers.
Now Paulo! This man is genuine and considerate. He takes care of you all day and makes sure you have a super rewarding experience. The guy knows how to take care of people. He has a wealth of history and takes time to take you to a local market or two for some of the best-known road secrets. We both grabbed a pair of handmade shoes. Paul even pulled a few ropes and got us into a local food spot after the ride for some amazing fresh homestyle seafood. This was the best ride I've ever been anywhere, and Paul is the reason for that. Its crazy if you book with anyone else!

PS The beach you go to is like a private paradise. No joke

A surprisingly great tour
This tour was great. Miguel is one of the best guides I've come across going put of his way to make the trip work for everyone. He knows a lot of locals and all the best places round the area. The day started with a trip to a local market, which was nice, before heading to one of the beaches and a cave where some of us jumped of a small cliff. We then went on a small driving tour before having one of the best lunches I've had in Portugal (it was €15 extra, but incredible value for the amount of food and sangria we had, plus the food was delicious). We then finished off at a winery with a huge art collection which was a nice surprise to finish the day. I would highly recommend this tour to anyone work a free day in Lisbon.

Ito was incredible!
I took a tour with my mom and Ito! He is so special. Very knowledgeable and well studied. You can tell he is passionate about what he does and extremely responsible, We loved that he spoke about his mom and family also and they should be so proud of him. He was so fantastic that we hired him for another day for something else we wanted to do. We will stay in touch and hope to cross paths again. Definitely book a trip with him!!!

AMAZING!!!
So, Miguel was our tour guide, lunch date, friend, and gave us one of the best days on a scheduled tour ever. We visited the local market that was enormous and where locals snack on a pastry or cafe all while people are weighing fresh food and buying for their families. We left from this local cultural gem to see a beautiful beach, take a nice hike and see waters of blues and greens that were too perfect to paint. Swimming was an option also and Miguel always made sure to take the best pictures while we enjoyed the hike and sites. Lunch was more than lunch! It was an epic feast of local dishes and sangria. Miguel even made sure there were vegan options to accommodate my food choices and they were all fabulous as well! The day continued with an awesome winery tour and tasting that was not too long but provided interesting information and a perfect tasting to finish! The tour was a mix of fun, scenic views, a bit of outdoors, cultural gems and a perfect meal! Miguel went above and beyond our expectations! When in Lisbon, booking Miguel and his company is the best decision you can make! Don’t miss out!

Two tours (two days): †Lisbon‡ and Sintra
My family and I took two tours with Miguel and we were consistently pleased with the tour. I was a bit concerned with how the tour might turn out—I’ve been in Portugal a couple of times, a long time ago. However my wife and teenage son had not. Miguel was extremely attentive and adapted the tour to both what we told him specifically and what he was able to discern from our interest. It was only the three of us and Miguel spent the entire day with us (arriving a few minutes early and ending time was when all locations were covered).

The first day of the tour was of Lisbon (including Belem). We did a combination of walking and car. Though I’d been in Lisbon previously, I had never seen the diversity of locations. We also occasionally stopped for a snack and coffee (and he made suggestions, offering us to choose where to stop). The second day was Sintra and Cascais: Again, the diversity of locations and how Miguel sequenced what we saw was perfect for what we were looking for. I have no reservations about recommending Miguel.

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.

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.
Day Trip to the Palace and Tapada de Mafra
Fantastic Day
We were met at the campground entrance by John. Short introductions and off we went. We were surprised but very pleased that we would be the only 2 on the tour.
Although it was a little rainy and foggy, the tour couldn’t have been any better. We were able to get a look at Sintra in a very special way because of John and his knowledge and dedication to his job.
What we were expecting was to see some sites. What we got was far more than that.
We would rate this tour as one of the best during our long stay in Spain and Portugal.
And for your tour guide John, WOW. He was way beyond what we expected. Very personal and fun guy to have as a guide.
Good job.

My husband and I spent a wonderful day in September with Manny as our guide on the Sintra tour. Manny was full of interesting stories about the area and everything we saw. This tour was definitely the highlight of our trip to Portugal, and an incredible value! The tour was easy to set up, and the communication as we were planning was very helpful. Manny was right on time and seemed to know the best times to go to all of the highlights on the tour so that we could avoid the crowds and have the best view. Thanks to Manny for a memorable trip!

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.

Ivo was an outstanding tour guide for my husband and I on our trip! He changed up the itinerary based on what we most wanted to do and see as well as take us to some of the loveliest views around Sintra and back to Lisbon. Very easy to talk with and shared some interesting stories about his childhood and life. 100% would recommend to anyone heading to Lisbon/ Portugal to book a tour with him. Thank you for the absolutely wonderful memories! It was a highlight and great way to end our trip.

VIP service
This was a full day road trip with a pick-up and drop-off at my apartment in Lisbon. I visited the majestic Pena Palace and Cabo da Roca, as well as the downtown areas of Sintra and Cascais, and I tried some amazing food at Casa Piriquita, Toca Do Julio, and Santini. My local tour guide, Miguel, was very hospitable and patient. He provided VIP service and was able to tailor the itinerary to meet my interests. We also had some great conversations in the car along the way. Obrigado, Miguel!

Amazing day!
We met Andre and immediately bonded. He was punctual and kind. He was very knowledgeable about Lisbon and of course the amazing Sintra. He picked us up and was very accommodating asking if we were comfortable and offering us water along the way. He was funny and had great stories to share. We loved visiting Portugal but Andre made the visit even more enjoyable by being a wonderful tour guide. I highly recommend Andre and will tell all my friends who plan to visit Portugal.

Perfect day outside of Lisbon
Miguel provided a relaxing way for us to tour Sintra & Cascais. Picked us up at our HolidayLettings rental on time. Also took us to western-most point of continental Europe, amazing waves off the Atlantic. Perfect lunch stop next to Farmer's Market in Cascais, where we enjoyed lobster & rice (huge pot for 2, in broth.) Great driver, very friendly & knowledgeable. Would definitely recommend him. Very reasonable prices.

Full day of variety above expectations
What a fun day to discover Arrábida. Nadine, our guide, was charming and generous with details, anecdotes and answers to our questions. Plus, with her ice-breaker tricks, she made sure the eight of us were comfortable with each other.
All activities are well detailed with many surprises and the late lunch is simply the best.
We even got a bonus stop at the end.
Merci du Canada,
Linda & Georges
Arrábida Uncovered: The Adventure
great guide
Our local guide was wonderful. She drove like a pro, knew her material and was attentive to all without unneeded chatter, Just the right mix for a relaxing yet informative trip.

My only negative was that your company did not give good information as to how to get to the office, If you had stated that it was in the train station on the second floor it would have been much easier to find.

Amazing guide that showed us amazing places!
The guide was perfect! Very friendly and went out of his way to show us the city. Would definitely recommend him to family and friends. He is very knowledgable of the city and took us to some really cool spots and showed us very beautiful places. Very easy going and even took us to get some local pastry that was absolutely delicious!

The highlight of our trip to Lisbon
If you are heading to Lisbon, do not miss Sintra. with a private tour with Miguel! He picked us up at our hotel promptly, drove us to Sintra. On Sintra, he took us to all the best spots. It was great to have the knowledge of a local person who speaks English as well as any American. We haven't stopped talking about our wonderful day!
