“Outstanding Experience”
Reviewed 2 April 2014

My wife and I took a tour of Alcobaca, Batalha and Tomar. Lux Invicta was very polite and convenient for us as it was very easy to book over the phone, and the tour guide (Patrick Cipriano) picked us up right in front of our hotel. Patrick speaks fluent English and is very knowledgeable in the history, culture and architecture of the sights we visited making for an enjoyable and informative experience. He walked us through all the rooms, halls, cloisters, etc of the sights we visited explaining and answering questions. He also knows his way around the road networks, which lets us spend a maximum of time at the sights, and he points out items of interest along the way. Overall, a great experience! Thanks Lux Invicta. You hire great people for your company. Keep up the good work.

“One of the best trips we've had in years.”
Reviewed 2 February 2014

The company provided the best service possible. Our main tour guide, Edgar Miguel Rodrigues is a very knowledgeable, well educated, perfectly groomed specialist loving his country and enthusiastically sharing his love with his clients. He was understanding, flexible and always responsive to our needs, interests and inquiries. He also is a very good driver making the company luxury car feel like home for us. The other guide, Patrick, who was with us for one full day also did a very good job. All hotels were very good, and all promised treats were very enjoyable. We fell in love with Portugal, and we already recommended the company to our friends who are planning to visit Portugal in September of 2014.

“Very Special Historical Tours”
Reviewed 7 January 2014

We took the Sintra and Cascais Tour in early November. We set up a private tour; when another couple requested the same tour date, the company gave us the option of staying private or going semi-private. The request was handled with care. We decided to accept the company, and reduced price, and it worked out fine. Our personable guide, Miguel, has deep historical knowledge, making him the perfect one for this trip. I have visited castles in France, Germany, Britain, Denmark, and elsewhere. The ones we saw on this tour -- Pena Palace and Quinta da Regaleira -- are fanciful and intriguing. It was a rich and enjoyable day.

“Historic Templar tour - AMAZING.”
Reviewed 17 December 2013

Miguel was our guide and made our day truly spectacular. One of the best tours we have ever taken in any country. Miguel was very friendly with great local knowledge (of entire country not just the sites we visited). Cannot recommend enough!

“Great experience through time, history and gorgeous architecture!”
Reviewed 28 October 2013

Our guide was Edgar Miguel. He is friendly, very knowledgeable, courteous, professional and a lot of fun. His advanced degrees afforded us with a detailed and fascinating experience through time, history and magnificent architecture! He even took us a bit off tour to see a Knights' Templar built aqueduct from the ground AND THE TOP! Lux Invicta may be a relatively small company, BUT IT IS A GIANT IN TERMS OF VALUE, EXPERIENCE AND PURE FUN! If you have the time to take this 1 day tour, DO IT!
