Jose was a terrific guide. He customized his normal tour to take us to the homes of the shepherds, the site of the first apparition and the sanctuary. He was very knowledgeable and friendly. All 7 in our group shared the same feelings.

Jose was an excellent driver with a sardonic wit! He customized our Sintra tour to also include Mafra Palace because I really wanted to see the Library at Mafra (amazing!!!). His recommendation for lunch in Sintra was perfect for us. The route he chose was very good…we were able to see the beautiful countryside and views of the ocean. I would definitely take this tour again!

TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thank you very much for your feedback Jody! Keep having fun with Portugueses cultural locations ! You'll love Tomar ! Try "ovos moles" in Aveiro !!

Jose was an enthusiastic and knowledgeable tour guide. He was flexible and amenable to ensuring we had the best experience possible. The van Jose used to pick us up was spotless, spacious and brand new. It was entirely comfortable for everyone (Jose + five passengers) and our luggage on the trip. Jose made lunch reservations for us at great restaurants. I would wholehearted recommend booking a tour with Jose.

TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Hi Ben ! Thank you very much for your feedback! Send my best to everyone! J.

We found Jose to be proud of Portuguese history but sadly lacking in his preparation for and discussion of our visit to Sintra landmarks. Although quite vocal regarding his opinions, he seemed less interested in our desires for explanations about the sites visited. I honestly cannot recommend him as a good guide.

We just completed our Sintra tour 30 minutes ago. All I can say is"WOW". José was a great knowledgeable guide who knows the history of Portugal very well. I would definitely recommend José for any of the tours he provides. We felt like royalty riding in his luxurious Mercedes mini van. Top notch all around. Thank you José for making our trip to Portugal a memorable one. We will definitely recommend to our friends and family.

TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thank you very much for your kind words. Next time you have to bring your grandchildren ! I know where to take them ! Best regards and enjoy Porto !!!!

Jose was amazing! Arrived on a cruise ship. Our travels began at 8:30 in a luxurious Mercedes tour van which comfortably seated 4-6 (we were 4) and ended at 4:30-a little bit of a "race" to get back to the ship, but Jose delivered "on time"! Our travels included a fabulous city tour, complete with historical and city data! He added a fabulous tour INSIDE the tower of the April 25 Bridge, Sinta, and Pena Palace Gardens in a horse drawn carriage! Jose is wonderful and engaging - a top TEN=Highly recommend!

TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thank you very much for your kind words! Enjoy the rest of your Hollidays ! Hope to see you soon ! José

My wife and I spent a wonderful 8 hours with Josef, our tour guide. We went to Queluz, then on to Sintra, where we visited the National Palace and the Chalet and Garden of the Countess of Edla. All the while, Josef regaled us with his excellent knowledge of history and of the region. We then visited Cabo de Roca, the Western most part of Europe, and then on to Cascais for a lovely beachside lunch. On the way back, we learned more about the history and people of Portugal. In all, a delightful day. Thanks

Jose was absolutely delightful to spend the day with. His knowledge of history was impressive. His use of stories to explain what we were seeing was clever, entertaining and effective. He listened to our expectations for the day and customized our tour accordingly. He was prompt, professional, and made our day memorable! The Mercedes van was a very comfortable and luxurious way to drive to Sinatra , Cascais and to the Palaces. We highly recommend that you book with Jose! Colleen and James Compton

The overall rating of the guide/Driver is great. My recommendation would be to remove Bathalya from the route to get to spend more time in Obidos which is beautiful. In fact it would be great to have lunch in Nazare and then spend 90-120 mins in Obidos. But otherwise loved the whole experience

Exactly what we wanted: a truly personalized tour by a charming, knowledgeable driver, who went out of his way to accommodate our every wish or need, including stopping on a dime for photo ops, negotiating a change to our lunch reservation in a very popular spot, and pulling antiseptic wipes out of his first aid kit for a scraped knee. Jose is wonderful. You can trust him completely.
