Thank you very much for taking some time to write a review! And yes, being an "Alfacinha" (nickname for a person that was born, raised and still lives in Lisbon), we are a lifetime resident indeed! And loving it ;-) The best for someone to appreciate what you have, is travel and live outside of your country and than coming back. Amazing Portugal! Definitely not perfect, but very, very nice! Warmest Regards, Joao Dickmann

We did a private tour with Paulo of Sintra, Cascais and Belem. We were supposed to see Pena Palace but it was closed due to fire concerns. Paulo made sure our trip was just as amazing. We went to the Queluz Palace instead which was beautiful. Paulo's love for his country and

Dear Patsi, So sorry that I skipped our date… But I told you that you would love Paulo! So he was a good “replacement”. ;-) And the cherry on top was that you were with one of the proudest Jewish guy I know! Very sorry for not being able to drive up to the Pena Palace and the rest, but with this climate changes, Portugal has had until now a very, very dry spring & summer. Even when it is a bit warmer (30-35Cº) Sintra and other locations are being closed for fire safety reasons, as it is very dangerous if there is a fire and people are in the top of the mountain. Could be a huge disaster. So, it´s a pain, but safety first. A Palace you can always visit, a life is just one. Love you Patsi, even if I was dumped for Paulo! ;-) Hoping to have you back in the near future. João Dickmann

Thank you very much for your review! Luckily we have had rain the last weeks (month...). Not the best for business, but we need it a lot, as there has been a very long dry season in Portugal. And yes, Paulo is our "Food-guy". He knows a lot of places, form economic to high-level.. Tell him your budget, and he will take you there... :-) We are glad that you enjoyed the tour to Sintra with us!. Warmest Regards, and all the best, João Dickmann
