My husband and I enjoyed our day trip to Obidos, Nazare and Porto. Our guide and the driver were fantastic and provided us with a great experience, within the time alotted, it was a long day but worth it. The only thing I would add to this trip is a tour of one of the Port producers - I mean, when in Porto ----- you just have to experience the Port! Again, 5 stars to our wonderful guide and driver for providing a comfortable, clean and safe van , excellent historic infomation, finding a local spot for a great non touristy lunch and engaged with all of us for a fun day!

The tour was great, especially if you have a short time in Lisbon and want to see several things/cities, O'bidos was especially beautiful. Our guide Flavio, in addition to being punctual and very nice, explained everything to us great and left us some free time to explore on our own and made good recommendations for eating in Porto. Also the trip was made more pleasant thanks to our driver Arthur,. also super friendly. We enjoyed a lot.

Highly recommended !!!!! Lucas our tour guide was fabulous, very kind and friendly. He made us feel like we are friends for many years. During the tour we learned a lot of things about the history of Porto and many hidden tips as well. This was the best 3 hours we spent in Porto.

Well organized trip, comfortable ride in conditioned mini-bus, guide gave free time in each location to walk. Recommend if you want to visit Porto but do not have much time

Highly recommend the bicycle tour. 3 hours went like a breeze. Best way to check out Porto with an electric bike. Antonio can never make the tour boring.
