Chill Out Lisbon: Original Free Tour
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.
Lisbon with a Local: Full-Day Tour
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!
Mysteries of Sintra Full-Day Tour from Lisbon
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.

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!

Lisbon Pride: A Relaxed Gay-Friendly Pub Crawl
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.
Day Trip to the Palace and Tapada de Mafra
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
Great Tour!
We had a great tour with Paulo. He is very knowledgeable about his country and we learned so much about the history of Portugal. He switched up the itinerary a bit so that we could avoid some traffic and some worked out perfectly! Thank you for a great day.
Private 9-Hour Tour of Fátima, Nazaré, Batalha & Óbidos from Lisbon
Fantastic Tour, Fantastic Guide - Pedro
Pedro was a brilliant tour guide - really informative and entertaining. The tour took us through the main central neighbourhoods with lots of local history and folklore. 3 hours passed so quickly and, by the end, we really felt we had our bearings in the city. His tips and recommendations were invaluable, they really helped us make the most of our weekend and avoid the tourist traps. He even accompanied us to a fantastic local restaurant when we asked for a suggestion for lunch. Thank you Chill Out and especially to Pedro - you made our weekend.

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 Audric, thx a lot and looking forward seeing you again the next time I'm in this breathtaking city...! Cheers, Martin
