    Amazing 3 days with Pedro - best guide we have ever had!
    We were in Portugal for 12 days. The best 3 were the days we spent with Pedro. We started with an amazing all day tour of 2 palaces in the Sintra area followed by a visit to the coastal area near Cascais. Pedro speaks fluent English and is very knowledgeable of this area since he lives there. The highlight of the day was a late lunch at a beautiful seafood restaurant right on the Atlantic. We also did a second all day tour to a nature park and other cities near Lisbon. Our last tour was an all day journey from Porto where he picked us up from our cruise ship to Lisbon with stops in 4 beautiful cities. I cannot say enough about how considerate Pedro is. If we return to Portugal he would certainly be at the top of our list to help us have a memorable vacation

    Fantastic Private Tour of Portugal
    Few words can truly express how accommodating and wonderful Pedro was to our family. Yes, he was also the driver and guide, going beyond the call of duty to take care of every request and need during our Portugal travels. His knowledge and fluent English made everything an exciting adventure. His hotel and restaurant recommendations for Cascais, Porto, and Lisbon were excellent choices. We told Pedro which sights we were interested in and he planned our entire eight day itinerary. When we were in the planning stages, Pedro was always very prompt in responding to our emails and texts and was very organized and professional. He is a gentleman in every sense of the word. We would be thrilled to return to Portugal again and Pedro would be the only person we would ever consider asking to be our tour guide. His kindness helped build fun, lasting memories that will be forever enshrined in our hearts. The best and easiest guided tour we have ever experienced!

    Great, highly recommended!
    Great hiking experience with a local guide. He was really knowledgeable having lived here almost all his life, and was able to take us to see various sights, explain the history, as well as go on less known trails we wouldn't have gone without a guide.

    Cannot do better than Sintra and Cascais with Pedro as host!
    Pedro is a terrific guide. He knows all the best routes, knows the sites very well, and shares lots of useful and fun info. He’s a polite and an absolute professional host and is focused on your trip being enjoyable. We were thoroughly impressed with his tour. We immensely enjoyed our time and would highly recommend this tour especially with Pedro as the host. It was the highlight of our time in Portugal!

    Magical day touring Sintra, Cabo da Roca, and Cascais
    We had an amazing tour of Sintra, the Cabo da Roca cliffs, and Cascais. Pedro was incredibly nice and knowledgeable about the area and all the stops we made. We thoroughly enjoyed our day and definitely recommend this tour.

    Sintra off the beaten path
    Pedro was absolutely the best person to provide a tour of Sintra and Cascais since he grew up in the region. He has seen the changes and shared a very up to date understanding of the National Park's latest residents of horses, while also providing detailed explanations of cork harvesting, the Capuchos monastery and the palace in Monserat. There were many other sites he shared with us once he understood our interests. We saw dinosaur footprints, iconic views of the Atlantic coast, Capuchos living quarters and more. Time spent with Pedro will help anyone understand the history and culture of this part of Portugal. The day was worth every euro. Definitely would recommend Pedro and his tour to others.

    Beyond exceptional
    We literally cannot say enough about Pedro and his incredible knowledge of Portugal! We loved him so much that we booked 3 more days with him. He not only took us to Cascais but to Obidos, Nazare and on to Porto. Then another 2 days over night journey to the magical village of Monsanto and more!!! Our trip was truly exceptional once in a lifetime to never forget. We absolutely fell in love w Pedro! Anyone who wants the best guide, amenable, creative and passionate about life and beautiful Portugal will need a passport and Pedro! He is the best of the best. We miss him already!!! Obrigada!

    Perfect tour with Pedro
    Our family of 8 had a fantastic tour to Sintra with Pedro. Pedro was punctual, charming, knowledgeable and efficient. He was so considerate and accommodating to the different needs of our group, and always with a smile. He has a lot of experience on the most efficient routes to avoid tourists and queues, as well as a wealth of historical information on the sites. We appreciated that he listened to our needs, adjusted the plans to suit us and recommended terrific lunch (and other eating places) from his local knowledge.

    Pedro is an excellent guide and I highly recommend him for your tours in Portugal. He is the most courteous and accommodating person to guide the tours and I learned so much from his vast knowledge of Cascais and the surrounding national park area. I will look forward to touring with him again!

    Tour with Pedro!
    Pedro did a fantastic job customizing our tours. We planned to do one tour with him but then added another tour since we liked his touring style and skills so very much. He is very knowledgeable and we learned so much Portugal history. He gave just the right amount of time in each area and gave private family time to explore as well. His prices are extremely reasonable for all the education and areas to explore that he provides in a day. I would most definitely recommend doing a tour with Pedro!

Unforgettable day trip!!!
My family and I had a vacation trip to sintra. We did not mean to get a tour but we met Patricia by chance. She seemed very smart and funny and at the end of that day our normal day turned to the most exiciting day trip that we ever had. She was very caring and welcoming and also very informative. Thank you Patricia. Hope to see you again...

May 2018 • Family
Pedro from Waving Portugal was at the train station in Sintra and we asked him for a tour, it was not that expensive and we have a child and he made the tour for her and us in a way, that we were all more than satisfied and happy. He war friendly, was interested that we can see a lot. He never had a look at the watch and we ended the tour, he would like to do it longer! He was with us for 5 hours and it was amazing. Thank you Pedro. We will recommand him and if we come again, we will book him again.

Amazing Sintra/Cascais Tour!
We booked the small group tour with Pipefly and Pedro was very responsive and helpful in answering my inquiries. For all the tour stops, he would walk with us and tell us interesting stories. For both Pena Palace and Quinta de Regaleira, his walking tour takes us to some stops off the main touristy sections too which we would have never found on our own. For lunch, he even took us to a local cafe which we really enjoyed :) He even bought us local snacks to try and gave us ginjinha to try at the end of the tour.

I would definitely recommend this tour and Pedro to anyone wanting to make their Sintra/Cascais tour memorable!

Beautiful Sintra
My 2 friends and I visited Portugal on our Christmas vacation for 3days. On one of those days we decided to visit Sintra. We took a train there and was greeted with pouring rains haha. They do say Sintra has a mini climate of it's own. Now to be honest I don't think we had a well thought out plan of what we were going to visit in Sintra or how we were going to get about. In our heads we thought we would walk. But later we realized that was totally unrealistic. As we walked out the train station, and trying to figure out our plan of action, a man asked if we needed any assistance and was showing us the different things to do in Sintra. I think ideally we'd have ignored and Gone about trying to do things on our own but with the pouring rain, we knew we wouldn't be able to get about on our own. So, we listened to what he was offering, which was
Pena Palace, Historic centre for lunch,
Quinta de regaleira, Cabo da roca and made the quick decision of going along with the tour. It was 30 euro a person.

The tour itself was lovely. Pedro drove us to the various locations in his van and would talk to us and give us a bit of the history. He would go into the various monuments and locations and walk with us. Our own private tour. Was very special. Walking about these places alone, I wouldn't have learnt or understood as much about the history. It was nice having someone to ask questions and to get such great responses also. And just to add, if you're picture savy girls like us, Pedro takes great pics 😏. So all in all, we highly recommend this tour to anyone interested in exploring Sintra. We were fortunate to be there in the off season so it was not busy and not too expensive, however for busier time of year, I would recommend booking online.
I'll attach some pics to show u the wonderful places we visited.

Awesome trip with friendly and knowledgeable guide/driver
We are a group of 6 friends from USA that went to Sintra and surrounds to spend a day out of Lisbon. We made no advance plans and were lucky to run into Daniel to drive us around. We are so glad we did! He had a big comfortable SUV, and a lot of local knowledge about the place he was born and raised in. We got to see the sights through his eyes, and quite often, away from the routine tour routes. Also, a big highlight of the day was lunch at a local family-run restaurant that you would not normally find on a touristy agenda. We loved every minute of our day with Daniel!

Jun 2018 • Couples
If I could give Vanessa 10 stars I would!! Honestly, I would make a trip out to Lisbon JUST to do this tour again. It was the perfect day thanks to her expertise and passion for touring the Sintra and Cascais area. She is very knowledgeable, entertaining, and great at picking the best photo spots! She went above and beyond what is expected of a tour guide including bringing us to the best lunch spot (which was our favorite food of our 17 day trip in Europe). If you’re on the fence about this tour, you NEED to do it!! It was my favorite day of travel and I will never forget how special of a day Vanessa made it for us.

Apr 2018 • Friends
We met Pedro at the exit of the Sintra train station on April 30th and we immediately agreed for a day tour of Sintra and Cascais; we were a small group of 6 people.
He also proposed to visit Cabo da Rocas and this was really a wonderful idea; the position and landscape of the Cabo and the nearest beaches were very beautiful.
During all the day Pedro was always ready to support and satisfy any need from our group and to suggest interesting things to do or locations to visit; he was always available to adjust the tour based on the needs of the group and this was very much appreciated.
At the end of the day we were really satisfied of all we saw: Sintra, Cabo da Rocas, Cascais and the surroundings.
Highly recommended.

Tour of Sintra with Pedro
May 2018 • Friends
Wow! We ran into Pedro while having an espresso at a cafe in Sintra. We started chatting and ended up hiring him to take us on a wonderful tour. There was no time limit so we got to choose how long we spent in each location. He shared historical, contemporary and personal knowledge. It was a wonderful day and if I am back in the area he will be the first person I will contact. Totally worth the time and not at all expensive.
