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.

Very nice day tour away from the tourist crowds. Lots of information about the country and culture. Also cool off-road section along the coast. Stop in a very good restaurant by the sea. We had a lot of fun. Definitely to be recommended

A very exclusive look at the natural beauty of this coast. 200-year old pine trees, beautiful estuaries and beaches. We enjoyed the exclusivity of having access to the beach and seaside restaurant.
