This is our second tour in Portugal with the same company. We know we are in good hands when we are with David, our guide. He just can’t wait to show his guests the amazing sceneries of Portugal. Sintra is so fairytale like, with its winding narrow mountain roads, cobbled alleyways, castle walls, and medieval style buildings. We felt like we were transported to a fairytale world. Definitely a must visit when you go to Portugal.
As in our first tour, David brought us to a superb restaurant for lunch, one that is definitely a favorite with the locals in the area, and where the food is fresh and tasty. We had a taste of hearty and satisfying local dishes.
On the way back to our hotel in Portugal, David took the trouble to take us to his favorite custard tart shop. He wanted us to have a taste of the tart from one of the most famous shops in Lisbon. It’s just like him to want his guests to experience as much as he can offer them.
Highly recommend this tour.

Dear Synthia, Thank you very much for this second review of our tours! Sintra is in fact a fairytale place with its lush greenery and amazing palaces and castles, followed closely by its amazing coast. I am really happy that you still enjoyed your day a lot even when we had a very foggy day that didn't even allow us to see some of the monuments properly. Obviously, lunch time is one of my favorite times on my tours because that's when I can really show my clients our culture in terms of food and drinks and I am glad you enjoyed the restaurant where I took you. Like I said on the other review, I really hope you can come back soon so you can experience more of Portugal and maybe Spain with me. Best Regards, David Monteiro

David is very knowledgeable, took us to authentic places, was never in a rush and always trying to show us the local touches of the city. We had an unforgettable tour with him in Sintra and then drove all the way to Cascais where we had very nice stops on the way. Davis is very professional, always positive and clearly is passionate about his job

It is difficult to pick one area to describe as our "favorite place we visited" because David truly customized our travels based upon our particular interests such as history and seeing and experiencing the places that the "average" Portuguese people live and socialize. We immediately asked to visit the smaller towns and villages "off the touristy beaten paths" without a beat he changed our path; of course he did not skip places of cultural significance.

David's language and social skills allowed entrance in to shops (even some not open yet) so that we could taste the amazing foods, wines, Port and of course the mouth watering desserts - my personal favorite, the fresh from the oven traditional custard tarts. (Please forgive my inability to spell or pronounce the correct traditional names of those gifts from the great Devine!!).

David's knowledge of the countryside was impressive alone but then his knowledge of the political and especially the history of the lands, cities, architecture and social changes because of foreign migration and occupation in very early history FAR SURPASSED our expectations.

As a world traveler, I can without doubt or hesitation say that David's tour far exceeds ANY OTHER 'tour guide' (that name does not do justice to his level of expertise) that we were fortunate enough to experience! We are already planning a second trip to Portugal and hope to be able to hire his services again,

By the end of the tour, it felt that we had moved from "clients" to friends. David's transportation equipment and wonderfully accommodating personality as well as educational experience is second to none.

My deepest and warmest regards to Mr. David Monteiro as well as my and my family's HIGHEST RECOMMENDATION!!!

Dear Allen, Thank you very much for your AMAZING review. Almost cried ^^ It was a pleasure taking you around the local areas. Anyone can take you to the touristy areas, but only a local knows where to take you to experience the REAL Portugal. Since you were looking for that kind of experience, I could easily shift from a tour around the most famous places to a tour around the local areas to get a feel for the real life here. I enjoyed my day as much as you, so it was again a pleasure to take you around my favorite local areas and I am looking forward to seeing you again in the future. Best Regards, David Monteiro

Knowledgeable, fun, entertaining... what more can you ask for in a guide? Oh... yeah, let's add that he saved us from waiting in lines and directed us to more activities that resulted in time better spent. Sure, he would take us to the most popular sites (the ones with the really long lines) if we wished, but why would we when there are less crowded, yet equally impressive, sights to see? If you want a private tour that isn't just another scripted tour bus affair, you can't go wrong here. Absolutely loved the tour and would use him again if/when we get back to Portugal.

Dear Tasha and Brian, Thank you very much for your review. Even though our tours have been a couple of months ago I still remember you very well and the great days we spent together, getting to know the best of Portugal in the limited time you had. And you're right, there is nothing scripted here. Only good, flexible and adaptable tours that help our clients do and see what they want through the eyes of a local. Hope to see you again one day. Best Regards, David Monteiro
