Tripadvisor’s approach to reviews
Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.

STOP looking into other tour guides, stop reading other reviews - if you want that feeling that an old friend, you haven't seen in years is picking you up for a drive to explore, Shortcuts is who you should be booking with.

Can't stress enough the wonderful one on one experience our group had.

We were so fortunate to have Miguel for 2 fantastic tour days. We had the city tour for 1day and Sintra the next day. Miguel ‘s knowledge of history and current events was truly amazing. I highly recommend any tour you can book with this company. Thanks so much for taking such great care of us and going above and beyond making our vacation just perfect. Karen and Larry Plate

Amazing experience. We did three tours with shortcuts tours (Sintra, Cascais and Evora) and all three were amazing. Miguel kept us entertained for all three tours and the family (13,12 and 9) really enjoyed it. Would highly recommend and I will be considering using them again the next time we are in Portugal.

We had the most amazing tour with Pedro! He was fun, personable and a wealth of knowledge. My husband, daughter and I thoroughly enjoyed spending the day with him while touring Sintra and Cascais. Not only did we learn a lot about the sights we saw but we learned a lot about Portuguese life and history. He is an incredible guide!

Working with Andre to plan our tour was fabulous and so easy. Excellent communication!! He also was so kind to recommend some restaurants for us in Cascais during our stay. We dined at two of them and they were great.

What an INCREDIBLE tour of Sintra with the one and one Pedro. He was super kind, thoughtful, and unbelievably educated about all things Portugal. My three kids all loved him as well. Shortcuts Tourism was recommended to us by another friend and they definitely didn't disappoint. Thank you Pedro and Andrei for all your help with our family vacation to Portugal!

We booked a private tour through Short Cuts for a party of four, a full day at Sintra. We heard about them from a YouTube video where the Tuber said to be sure to book through them if looking for a private tour. We are so glad we did!

Miguel picked us up at the front door of our hotel in Cascais. Immediately the five of us just clicked and we knew it was going to be a fun day. He was friendly, knowledgeable, thoughtful and kind in a relaxed but confident way. None of us dwelled on the terrible wet, windy weather that day because of amazing sights, great conversations and a generally enjoyable day.

Because this was a completely private and flexible tour, we thought €100 per person was a very reasonable rate. Next time we visit the Lisbon area, we plan to contact Short Cuts again and ask if Miguel is available for a tour to see other attractions in the area.

Andre was amazing so informative, fun and engaging. We did a tour to Cascais and Sintra with Andre. Andre is brilliant and very detailed. I truly enjoyed our tours but mostly our conversations as we felt we were family. He made our trip to Portugal so memorable and special. Andre is top notch, knowledgeable and incredible human being. There is no other than Andre. I look forward to going back to Portugal and reconnecting with him.

Amazing tour guides. Do what you want, see what you want, when you want...lots of flexibility and every guide we had was amazing when it came to the amount of information they had regardless of where we chose to visit. Would HIGHLY recommend Andre, Miguel, and Pedro as guides.

My family and I recently visited Portugal with our 3 year old and 10 month old. Because of our young children I sought out a private tour so that we could leave car seats in the car, have more flexibility when needed, etc. Andre was amazing - super friendly and very communicative before our booking. He also made great recommendations which kept our young kids happy and engaged while giving the adults a great experience as well. Highly recommend for anyone, but especially those traveling with multiple age groups! His knowledge of the area and history is incredible.Amazing time, thank you Andre!

Had the BEST tour of Sintra with Pedro - probably the smartest and most knowledgeable tour guide we've ever had and extremely personable on top of that. Pena Palace is amazing. Pedro gave us a good recommendation for lunch in Sintra and then we had lovely visits to Cabo do Roca and Cascais. Pedro was also nice enough to drive along the coast all the way back to Lisbon so we could see some extra sights. Booking through Andre was a snap. Highly recommended.
