Francisco was a great guide. He picked us up right on time. The van was perfect for our group of 5. Francisco provided us with alot of information about Portugal and was with us the whole day. He arranged for meals and also provided tour information. It was great having him with us to help us navigate the area. He made our day trip a great experience. I would highly recommend Francisco for any tour in Portugal!

TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thank you very much for your kind words. It was a pleasure guiding you through our beautiful country and sharing a bit of our culture with you. Hope to see you back shortly. All the best.

This tour was a perfect day! Our guide was able to share a lot of information with us about Sintra and the other areas we visited. He went out of his way to show us hidden gems along the way. We felt very comfortable spending the day with Fransisco. We would highly recommend this tour.

Francisco was wonderful. The visit to Sintra would have been much less enjoyable without his expert knowledge and experience. Nothing was too much trouble and he knew all the tricks to avoid long queues and steep climbs. He took our lunch preferences into account and we ended up at an outstanding beachside seafood restaurant for one of the best meals we've had in Portugal. He is extremely considerate and tailored the day to what we enjoyed. VERY highly recommended.

TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thank your very much for your kind words, Ian. It was a pleasure to guide you through your last day in Portugal. Hope that you may return soon. Best Regards Francisco L.

Excellent day and tour with Francisco. He customized it so that after Sintra we were able to go to the coast and see some amazing beaches and have an incredible lunch. His car was comfortable for the 3 of us and his knowledge of the history of Portugal is outstanding. I highly recommend this private tour while Visiting Lisbon

Francisco is extremely knowledgeable, personable and very patient. It was our first trip to Portugal and our friends recommended seeing Sintra but he inquired as to our taste and gave us great suggestions. He got us into Pena Palace early and when we came out the lines were huge. His commentary was excellent as was is suggestion to also visit the Monserrate. He took us to a fabulous seaside restaurant for lunch then Cascais. All four of us agreed that we would highly recommend Francisco as a guide.

Francisco picked us at our cruise shi, with all of our luggage, and took us to Sintra. He helped us avoid the crowds and gave us a great tour of Palacio Nacional. We tasted traditional Portguese pastries with coffee in the morning - beautiful little pillows filled with cream.  For lunch we had fish cooked in a salt shell (very moist and not salty) and Portuguese "punched" potatoes. All of them were Francisco's recommendations. It was a very nice day. He returned us to our hotel for our river cruise.

We wished to modify this tour by including a visit to the Almendres Cromlech. Francisco stated not a problem & we were the first visitors @ the site on the way to Evora. On our walking tour through Evora he gave complete explanations of the sites. He even made a lunch reservation for us @ a great vegetarian restaurant. Nice touch. Monsaraz village & winery stop completed a perfect tour. Do not hesitate to book with Francisco.

Francisco was top notch on our Lisbon and Sintra tour! He was very professional and extremely knowledgeable about the history of Portugal. He drove us to the Pena Palace in Sintra before the crowds arrived, so as a result we were able to see many additional sites during the day. We never waited in long lines! We learned so much about the Portuguese culture. For lunch we went to a fabulous seafood restaurant with a wonderful view of the ocean. We couldn't have asked for a better guide!

5 stars are not enough. This tour was perfect in every way and Francisco was outstanding. We were delayed by an unexpected local parade and a longer than usual lunch break, but Francisco extended the tour to make certain everything planned was included. He also had wonderful stories to tell us about the places we visited and took me to the best places for photographs because he knew that was an interest of mine.. I've had many tours by locals tours, and this was one of the best.

Francisco was the perfect guide for our group. We had varying degrees of ability (two walking with canes) and he was able to find something good for the ability level of each person in our group of six. I was especially happy with his advice about the best places to take unique photographs in Sintra and we enjoyed the local treat as well.

Francisco was amazing! We could not of asked for a better tour guide, he felt like a new friend at the end of the tour. I did the Sintra and Cascais tour with my husband and my parents. He was very informative, and very flexible to take us wherever we wanted. He knew all the good spots to visit. We were never rushed, and he ended up spending even longer than we were booked for because we wanted to see so much. I would 100% recommend him as a guide!

We had an absolutely wonderful day with Francisco! He was very conscious of our likes and interests and went out of his way to include things in the tour that would be special for us. He was a font of information about all things Portuguese and was delightful to converse with. We would not hesitate to strongly recommend Francisco for any tour he offers in Portugal.
