Jose was booked by our travel agent at the last minute because we needed a driver from one city to another, with a stop in Sintra in between. A simple ride turned into a wonderful day with Jose. My husband and I felt like we had known him for a long time. He gave a wonderful history of the areas we drove through as well as some of Portugal's history. We were grateful he chose to take us to a restaurant he visits and shared a meal with us. I highly recommend Jose as a guide!

Jose led us through a beautiful Sintra palace, describing its features in considersble and engaging detail. Though he was injured and not able to climb the ramparts at the next palace, our lunch afterward was delightful. He described the traditions behind the food we ate and took obvious ple asure in our enjoyment of Portuguese cuisine.. His familiarity with obscure aspects of American culture made our lunch with him especially enjoyable.

Jose was very knowledgeable and able to provide full information about the sites we visited, plus finding a wonderful restaurant for us in Sintra. But most important, he was very flexible in adapting the tour to our schedule, interests, and abilities, and went above and beyond to make things easier for one of our group who had a little trouble with some of the walking, stairs, etc. I think Jose is an ideal guide, and I would highly recommend him.

Our day with Jose was great - saw parts of Lisbon that we had not seen and had a lovely day in Sintra. Learned a lot about the history and culture. Would highly recommend this outing for others.
