Very knowledgable guide. Finally a guide who explains history, makes connection between sights and culture. At the same time an excellent driver and a very kind person.
Our excursion was fabulous! Our guide, Andre, was prompt, spoke excellent English, was extremely knowledgeable of the history on our tour stops as well as other Portuguese facts. He did not rush us from any of our stops and took incredible pictures for us at these beautiful sights. He told us how we could get our religious articles blesses in Fatima! We had enough time to explore on our own at each location. Each stop had a different vibe-religious, historic, nautical/nature. It gave us a comprehensive feel of Portugal. Andre went above and beyond for our small group-each group spoke different languages and he communicated equally and fluently to both groups. Our day excursion went beyond the recommended time and he was as pleasant, accommodating and funny at the end as he was in the morning! This man certainly found his niche in this business!! The company was excellent with communicating and adjusting our reservation. HIGHLY recommend this tour and tour guide
