José is simply full of stories and historical facts, all recited with joy. His personality and desire to inform the six of us are qualities we appreciated. Our tour of the Palace of Queluz & its gardens and a journey to Sintra were delightful.

TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Hi Mary, it was just a pleasure to tour with you ! Loved the Postcard :D

Jose gallantly and safely escorted 5 ladies of a certain age on a private tour of Lisbon and Sintra with lunch at a wonderful seaside restaurant. Jose (Joseph) is so knowledgeable and passionate about his country but also witty and kind, not only with us but with a French couple who approached with a problem. Joseph switched from English to French flawlessly. What a pro. We five would absolutely recommend Jose.

TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Joyce, my fair ladies, truly was a wonderful day we had..... loved touring with you !

Jose is extraordinary. He is filled not only with information, but also with insight and perspective, and he has a great enthusiasm to share it all. We could not have asked for a better guide. Our highest recommendation for anybody interested in learning about and seeing Lisbon, Sintra, or surrounding areas.

TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Philip, your kind words fill my ego ! Do come back ! we have more to scout around....

Looking for a trip to the countryside out of Lisbon? This should be on your list, go with José! We, 6 young senior friends, just had a special day with a great guy in his comfortable van. Weeks before the trip I had contacted him and told him what we would like to see. He was so accommodating and happy to show us his countryside.His English is excellent and he drives his beautiful Mercedes van though narrow old streets with ease. He took us some places that are missed by many of the big companies! Thanks

TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: And what a day it was..... :D Loved showing you "gals" around !!! :D

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.
