    One of the best days of our entire trip! Rui was our private guide for the day and allowed us as much flexibility as we wanted. He was very knowledgeable, warm and kind! We visited the magical Pena Castle, early enough to be there before the crowds and had plenty of time to explore Quinta de Regaliera, as well as the seaside town of Cascais. Don’t hesitate to book this amazing day tour! We will miss not having Rui on the rest of our travels through Portugal. Muito obrigado, Rui!!!

    Wir hatten eine Tour zu dritt mit José, einem total lieben und freundlichen Guide. Er holte uns pünktlich ab, konnte viel über die Sehenswürdigkeiten erzählen und alle Fragen beantworten. Wir fuhren u.a. zum Peña Palace, dort begleitete er uns, gab Infos, machte Fotos und ließ uns dennoch genug Zeit, wenn wir selbst nach etwas schauen wollten. Danach ging es in ein kleines bekanntes Café (der Cappuccino und das Gebäck waren ein Traum!), anschließend hatten wir einige Zeit, die Quinta da Regaleira zu besuchen. Danach trafen wir uns wieder, besuchten Cabo de Roca, fuhren durch Cascais und wurden wieder am Treffpunkt abgesetzt. Jede Sekunde hat sich gelohnt! Die Sehenswürdigkeiten sind atemberaubend und José ein super Begleiter! Das Fahrzeug war groß, sauber und gemütlich. 10/10!

    Our tour with Rui was exceptional. We had a great time. He’s an amazing guide. He carefully drove us to Sinatra from Lisbon. The tour at Peña Palace guided by Rui was clear and effective. We tried the special delicacies and foods which were tasty. We really had a blast with him. I’d totally recommend everyone to take this tour to explore this beautiful village and places surrounding. Thank you so much for everything again Rui. You’re the best ⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️

    Consigliatissimo! La nostra guida Rui e’ stata gentilissima, ci ha accompagnato all’interno del palazzo di Sintra e ci ha spiegato tutto. Ci ha anche mostrato alcune chicche per veri intenditori. Ci ha anche dato tutto il tempo di cui necessitavamo per fare le visite (c’era coda per alcuni siti). Bravissimo e consigliatissimo, esperienza da rifare!
