On the day of our departure we had half day free so we were wondering what to do. We were lucky enough to come across this tour offered by Lisbononwheels. The tour guide was excellent, very knowledgeable, patient, and friendly! The van was comfortable, with A/C and onboard Wi-fi, and there were bottles of water free of charge, in case that we got thirsty. The guide took us to see breathtaking spots in Arrabida, and to our minds Praia da Lagoa de Albufeira-Mar was the most impressive beach we haven seen so far in Portugal! We took our time at each spot and could enjoy a hassle-free morning. It was the best way to say goodbye to Lisbon. This is a tour I would recommend to anyone who wants to explore hidden parts of Lisbon and enjoy wonderful views! For couples, it is a must in Lisbon!

Can’t say enough good things about this tour! First, the timing: it was so nice to have an option that didn’t start super early, yet still had you home in time for dinner. As for the stops we made: great! Just a small bit of physical activity - trust me, if my short, chubby, old body can handle it, so can yours - with a VERY good payoff! The lookouts were sublime, even with a bit of fog, and it was wonderful to leave the driving to a most capable guide so I could enjoy the views :) the wineries we visited were a good combo of idyllic vineyard views and a tour of a well-established winery. André was an engaging, informative and patient guide who felt more like a friend at the end. Obrigada for a lovely afternoon!

The tour was super interesting. The places to visit that our guide Luis chose were great: vantage points with wonderful views of Lisbon and the surrounding area, beautiful views of great beaches, and finally a visit to a winery with a delicious sample! Absolutely recommendable, and especially our very friendly guide Luis!

We had a great experience with Cesar. The fishing village of Sesimbra and the beach are delightful and the wine tour was super informative and relaxed! The nice views from the Arrabida mountains were an added bonus! Cesar is very passionate about the local culture and food and we had a very pleasant time.

Me and my sister had a private tour with Jose which was excellent. Jose was very friendly, very knowledgeable, great company and made our tour special. He made sure we have seen what we have wanted to visit and also recommended us very nice Portuguese restaurant. I would definitely recommend
