Miguel is all the things a tour guide should be - courteous, knowledgeable, friendly, animated, flexible, interesting and interested! We thoroughly enjoyed our 5 hours with him. He has a solid future in the business, and would book with him again in a future tour should the opportunity arise. All the best to you Miguel!

We could have easily given Miguel more than 5 stars if only allowed. There is a big difference between "sharing" from simply "showing" the different attractions, and Miguel was phenomenal in guiding us around and really giving us the true feel of the local flavors. We greatly appreciate his sincerity, the camaraderie, for being a great companion while we savor some of the best Portuguese sceneries. We strongly recommend Miguel as your tour guide if you want to have the best experience while in Portugal!
Miguel V. was an excellent guide for our tour of the Sintra region. He was punctual, polite, friendly and extremely knowledgeable regarding the history, features and nuances of the area. He was an excellent driver, and the car used for our tour was clean and well maintained. I would strongly recommend him for tours in this area.
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thank you, Steven, it was also a really big pleasure to meet both of guys, of course I had a wonderful journey to. Next time you come to visit my country I will have all the pleasure in help you, now you have a friend in Portugal ;). My kind regards, Miguel V.

Miguel is very knowledgeable about the national history of the areas we visited as well the local cultural details. His suggested plan for visiting the Pena Palace was excellent and it gave us enough time to see everything we wanted to see. He has a very good heart and has a genuine and sincere interest in his visitors. He was even able to help us with some technical issues at the beginning of the tour.
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thank you very much Lance, It was a great pleasure to met you and your wife. I had a wonderful day. Wish you the best and a good life together. Kind regards.
We requested Miguel's services for a bus full of 45 seniors. He was excessively patient, courteous, kind, loving, easy to get along with, professional and very accommodating. I am in the travel industry and would request Miguel's assistance again without any hesitation. Bravo Miguel!
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Whaooo Moez and Shy, Thank you very much for your trust. I had a wonderful day with all of you full of fun and happiness. Thank you for your good energy and good will. Kind regards.

Miguel hizo muy buen trabajo dandonos indicaciones precisas e informaciones utiles en el camino para prepararnos a lo que ibamos a ver en los diferentes lugares del tour. Siempre fue muy amigable y estuvo atento a nuestras preguntas, ademas siempre mostro interes genuino en transmitirnos ese "toque / perspectiva local" que apreciamos mucho y que es precisamente lo que da un valor adicional a la experiencia de hacer un tour con alguien que conoce realmente los lugares, Miguel gracias por ser nuestro guía!
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Hola rodrigo para mí fue un gran placer poder mostrar mi país por dos días y en lugares tan especiales. Ustedes también son personas extremadamente genuinas y sé que nuestro abrazo final fue cierto. Muchas gracias amigos. Voy a recordar te aquí en Portugal;).

Miguel was great, informative, and always prompt to give insightful comments. We really enjoyed the whole tour as on our way to the sites he explained several issues of what we were about to see which helped to understand the experiences better: Fatima -- amazing uplifting peaceful place, Nazare -- fantastic views from the hill, genuine Nazarenos [locals selling homemade high quality textile & food products], Obidos -- small forted city full of history and misticism... Miguel made it all easy to enjoy!
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thank you very mush for your comment Rodrigo, it was easy since the beginning with you and your mother you are amazing cute persons. See you on Monday. Cheers amigos.

Miguel was friendly, enthusiastic, accommodating and knowledgeable. He made the trip fun for my husband, myself, our adult granddaughter and her two friends/traveling companions. We enjoyed the flexibility of having our own private tour, and Miguel went out of his way to ensure that we saw as much as possible of the beautiful sights in Sintra, Cabo da Roca, the "Mouth of Hell" and Cascais before returning us to Lisbon.
