Our guide Nuno was great and very professional ! He really went out of his way to make sure we knew exactly where we should go to make the most of our experience. I liked that he would drop us off and we could wander for a bit before moving to the next attraction, and he made suggestions in Sintra for what we should see to maximize our time according to our interests. We opted to see the outside (park) of Peña palace, and tour the inside of the National palace in town, and have a nice lunch at a restaurant in the main square followed by delicious pastries at a shop Nuno recommended. We booked this tour last minute after our prior guide got Covid and canceled on us. Definitely loved the private tour including pick up / drop off at our hotel to maximize our time. Highly recommend Nuno and his small tour company.

Nunu was great! He was extremely well-informed and had a great itinerary for us, going for Cascais to Cabo da Roca to Sintra, Regalaria and Pena Palace. And he had a great recommendation for lunch where the mayor of Sintra was even eating at the time we were there. I would definitely recommend this if you are looking for a quality private tour.

Nuno is an amazing guide. This tour made me fall in love with Portugal. Nuno is kind, knowledgeable, professional and patient. My only regret is that we did not do this tour on our very first day in Portugal. The tour gave us a deep appreciation for Lisboa, Cascais, and Sintra. Portugal’s history and culture is so rich and beautiful. This tour with Nuno exceeded my expectations and I look forward to touring with him again on my next trip to Portugal.
