Sintra is Amazing
Aug 2021
My family and I took a wonderful tour of Sintra and surroundings. Our guide Miguel was very helpful, speaks very good English, showed to be knowledgeable about history and was very friendly. he was always with us during the day , was very flexible but also gave us time alone to enjoy the fantastic places we went . I recommend that anyone taking this tour visit the Sintra Palace that is located in the village and Cabo da Roca. Cascais is also very picturesque and has great options to eat at an affordable price. Thank you so much Miguel for a wonderful day.

I usually travel as a solo woman, who has been blessed to go on many tours / day trips around the world. Honestly, I simply cannot say enough positive things about this day! Miguel was the best possible guide: knowledgeable, professional, and personable. I enjoyed and benefited from his insights, adaptability, and good humor throughout the day. I enthusiastically would sign up for another tour with him! Happy to provide additional “color and commentary” to other TripAdvisees, if it would be helpful…

My wife & I has a bespoke tour organised. We were collected in a cool 4x4 jeep and driven around the west coast of Portugal. From Lisbon to Sintra and then to Cabo de Roca. Simply beautiful. The tour guide was excellent and gave us space (and info when we asked). Reasonable prices and excellent communication. 5/5

Saved the day!
After another tour operator no showed on us, we happened to run into Miguel, who helped us navigate that sticky situation out of the kindness of his heart. It wasn’t until I pressed him, that he mentioned that he does private tours. Fortunately for us, he was available on the spot (we travel off season). Conversation with him was personable and current, but he also gave us a lot of history throughout the day. He gives a lot of freedom to spend the time that we like at each destination, and he was realistic about walking and waiting expectations.

After a full day tour of Sintra and Cascais, he even took the time to text us a must-see list of things to do in Lisbon.

I wish we could have hired Miguel for several day’s worth of tours. He really helped turn lemons into lemonade for us, and made a major impact on our vacation in general.

A wonderful, perfectly timed day!
Sep 2019
Thanks to Miguel, we enjoyed a perfectly timed visit to Sintra Castle, Sintra the village, End of the World, and Cascais. He came to our hotel in Lisbon exactly as promised, and we headed to Sintra Castle with one other couple in Miguel's wonderful small van. Miguel's advice that we be headed out of Lisbon by 8:15 am was spot-on -- we beat the huge (!) crowds visiting the castle and enjoyed a relaxed tour of the exterior and interior there without any stress. Then we walked back down to the van, and Miguel drove us to Sintra village. We had 2 full hours to explore there on our own and enjoy a relaxed lunch, before meeting back up with Miguel and the other couple promptly at 1 pm. Again, we missed the huge (!) crowds in the village that were arriving as we left. Our next stop was a picturesque visit to Land's End, and then on to Cascais for a 90-minute walk through that large/beautiful city. Plenty of time to see the old town and enjoy a gellato. Miguel then returned us to Lisbon and had us at our hotel by 5:00 pm. Miguel is a great driver and a very cordial, articulate guide for everything in the environs of Lisbon. Next time we go, we will have him give us a tour of Lisbon itself. Thank you, Miguel. Our day with you was perfect!

Miguel was our guide. Knowledgeable, fluent in English and a delight to be with. He drove us in his comfortable vehicle, imparted much information, and also catered to our specific interests. Would highly recommend him and would certainly contact him should I return to Lisbon.
