Susana was punctual picking us up at the hotel. She educated us about the different areas we went to and made us feel we were part of that era She spent the whole day we us approximately 8 hours and it felt like a few we were never bored I highly recommend Susana
Susana was an excellent partner for the day. We customized the activities to suite our interests and my wife and I enjoyed the descriptions and history of the visited sites. She recommended a beach restaurant close to Cascais that had the breakers rolling in while we had a delicious seafood meal. The Mercedes van was spacious and comfortable and Susana was an impressive driver and narrator during the tour. Wonderful guide - highly recommended

What an incredible tour to see the beauty of Sintra & the coast. Susana is incredibly knowledgeable and provided amazing insight walking through the castles and the coastal areas. Susana was very considerate as we were traveling with seniors and our younger children. She also had some great recommendations that would work best with our group. It really was an amazing and beautiful tour. Thank you Susana!

Sintra was great. Because the weather was rainy and no view to see from Pena Palace ,Susana recommended seeing the Nat'l Town palace, which was stunning. We were NOT disappointed. Again she had a treasure of stories to tell in each room about what we saw. Since the palace was in the heart of Sintra, it made for an easy transition to walk the town, then on to the coast to Cascais and Estoril. We stopped for tasty treats before returning to Lisbon. She's a safe driver & has with a very comfortable car.

Susana was wonderful. She based our tour on everything we wanted to see. Went to Sintra, the Palace and the coast. She was very knowledgeable. We ate a wonderful local restaurant. Lovely informative day.

Our 2nd day with Susana was a full day tour to Sintra, a pretty, quaint place that is very difficult to do with a mobility scooter that me wife was using. Susana stayed with my wife in her vehicle so I could experience and wander around Sintra (and take photos.) We headed to Cascais a beach town where we stopped for an excellent lunch (her recommendation.) It was another very satisfying day because Susana made it so

Our tour with Susana was 5-stars. Cannot imagine a more professional, knowledgeable guide!Amazing views of the cities, discussed their histories, architecture, art, and culture. She was sensitive to health limitations. Her love for these areas was evident. We saw and did more than we could have accomplished on our own, tried wonderful new food, heard amazing music and wanted to learn more about Portugal's history. We have taken many tours, but rarely had a guide as excellent as Susana. Great driver too!

Stuart TenneyUnited States
A spectacular day with great service and care! Her vehicle was in good mechanical order, drove safely, and a great narrator and historian. She took great care of those in our party with physical limitations. Would book another tour in the future! Highly recommend! Thank you for a memorable experience!
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thank you Stuart for a lovely day with your group of friends. Hope you all have wonderful days in Portugal. Best regards. Susana.
Suzanna was great. She was timely, gave us options for the tour and good advice on how it would be. She was so knowledgeable about the sites we visited, the history and the connections of the people involved. She was also knowledgeable about the Sintra / Cascais area and broader. Suzanna made our day very worthwhile and pleasureable. All six of us enjoyed our day!
If you book Susana for this tour, you will not be disappointed. She is very knowledgeable, friendly and flexible to tailor the tour to suit you and your group perfectly. The six of us had a great day with her, we loved what we saw and learned a lot. Thanks Susana
Ben WaideUnited States
Used Susan for full day trips to Fatima and next day to Sintra and the Cape. She is an extremely knowledgeable and articulate guide, plus a VERY nice person. We saw it all, learned a lot about the history, and thoroughly enjoyed the day! One of our group has mobility issues and she accommodated her extremely well. There was a group of six and her van was very clean and comfortably. I highly recommend her!!
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thank you again Mr Waide for your nice comments. All the good to you and family. Susana.
Craig HillUnited States
Excellent tour. Susana offered several options and worked with us to ensure a great time. She provided a lot of history and information during our tour.
Carmen ComiteUnited States
She is a CERTIFIED GUIDE from the Portuguese government who has spent countless hours perfecting her skills and boy, does it show it when you ask her a question. How she can remember what King married what Queen from what country for the past 900 years is beyond me . Her English language is impeccable and as good as her Portuguese, which she used many times when communicating for us. Anyone who chooses another guide to see Lisbon 7& its surroundings will miss the real Portugal. She is a STAR!!

We enjoyed our Sintra, Cascais and Estoril tour with Susana.We truly appreciate the adaptation done for hubby's wheelchair, as we do understand that there are places we can go down to and see and, also not see. We liked Cabo da Roca (don't forget to bring a jacket or windbreaker as it can be windy and cool there). Loved the scenic views along the entire tour. We enjoyed the stories and info. Thank you, Susana! =)
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Dear Amy, thank you so much for your kind words. I really enjoyde spending the day with you and Augustine. All the good to you. Best wishes. Susana.
Laura JonesUnited States
Susana is fabulous! My group of six adults not only enjoyed the itinerary, but also our "new old friend" Susana. She's super organized, which allowed us to enjoy all of the sites, yet not feel too rushed. The Palace of Queluz was magnificent, Sintra was very much a fairytale city, Cape Rock provided gorgeous vistas, and Cascais could be the setting for "lifestyles of the rich and famous". Overall, a grand day!
Douglas R CookUnited States
Susana is awesome. She had all kinds of information and didn't miss a beat when asked any question. She is very dedicated, very knowledgeable, very pleasant and very well prepared. I can't say enough about her professionalism. The last two days with her have been stupendous for both couples of us who she had to put up with. We learned a lot and had a great time learning. She is so worth the money spent for the 2 tours. D Cook
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Dear Mr Cook, I am so happy you enjoyde the time spent in Lisbon. I really appreciate your kind words, they mean so much to me. Hope you have a wondeful time with your cruise. All the good. Susana.
Caryn SelickUnited States
This was second day with spent with Susana. Her van was large and roomy but on return air conditioning died and windows didn't open and it was really hot! We went to royal palace in Sintra as we were told Peña Palace would be too crowded, lines would be too long. We enjoyed palace but felt bad we did not see Peña Palace. We walked around Sintra a short time and had local pastries which were delicious. We drove to Cape Rock, very foggy and couldn't see anything. Cascais was too touristy.
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Dear Caryn, I really enjoyde the days spent with your family.I am really sorry the air conditioning of the van broke down on the return trip from Cascais ( 30 minutes). Unfortunetly this was something I could not control but it was fixed on the next day. Regarding the visit of the Town Palace, I was asked about what we could visit in Sintra and I explained about the options . I told you to do some research and you decided you didn't want to spend hours in a line.Then you gave me reason. Best regards.
Tamara WynnUnited States
Susana was lovely. She is an official tour guide having received a college degree in tourism makes her a great choice if you really want detail and facts. The tour was as advertised...we spent a lot of time driving to different locations because we only had the one day to see as much as we could....to Susana's credit we covered a lot of geography in a short amount of time. She had great back stories about the Portuguese aristocracy, which was interesting to hear when we were at the castles and palaces

Virginia C.United States
Our first time in Portugal and we couldn't have had a better guide. Susana was very knowledgeable and passionate about the places that we visited. Sintra, Cascais, Estoril and the beautiful coastline. She also suggested local delicacies. My husband and I had a wonderful day with Susana and strongly recommend her guide services to anyone visiting the area.
Luis A. Salgado-MunozUnited States
Susana is an excellent Tour Guide. Very knowledgeable, friendly and very client oriented in her management of the tour. Her English is excellent, so we had no problems understanding her. We had an excellent experience with Susana and definitely she deserves a five stars review.
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thank you Mr. Salgado for your kind words. I appreciate your review very much. Best regards. Susana.

Mary Ann LambUnited States
Our Full Day Tour of Sintra, Cape Rock, Cascais and Estoril was one of the most enjoyable days spent in Portugal! Susana was a delightful and knowledgable/credentialed (university degree in tourism) guide who expertly led us through Pena Palace and other Sintra signts. Her recommended cafe for lunch and Casa Piriquita "pillow pastries" were the perfect break before heading to Cape Rock and the coastal resort towns. Susana knew the best "photo op" spots for capturing breathtaking views. Thanks Susana!
