    Very much enjoyed our day with Miguel. He was very personable and informative. He allowed us to spend time in places that were of interest to us without rushing us or imposing his desires on us. It made this tour so much more enjoyable than with a whole crowd of tourists who all had to do the same things.

What people are saying about Oeste

We were surprised to have basically a private tour tailored to our needs! It was a wonderful experience where we learned a lot about the region, had great conversations, and also time to ourselves to explore. The highlight was the palace at Queluz! We practically had it to ourselves! I’d definitely recommend this tour to anyone and will be in contact to organize my next tour when I’m in Portugal!

Our Guide came to pick us up at the hotel and made a tour starting with Cascais, then we went to Cabo de Roca, Sintra and the Pena Palace. At each stop he explained the most important thing in the place and gave us time to go for free and discover more. The guide named Miguel spoke Spanish, English and other languages perfectly. He was very pleasant and attentive at all times.

Very much enjoyed our day with Miguel. He was very personable and informative. He allowed us to spend time in places that were of interest to us without rushing us or imposing his desires on us. It made this tour so much more enjoyable than with a whole crowd of tourists who all had to do the same things.

Miguel was a very nice guide who was able to speak French and pick us up from our place to the day tour. He was very kind and flexible and thanks to him we manage to see very nice and lovely place. Thanks a lot Miguel :)

It was a fantastic tour, with all credits to the tour guide! He told everything about the city, showed us all the beautiful places and gave us all the space to see all the sights! It was a top tour, highly recommended!
