          Best private tour company around
          We had taken private tours around Portugal in the past, and No Map Tours by far is the best private tour operator you can find. We went on two tours with them, and we are so glad we picked this particular company. The tours are well planned and the vehicles are super clean and comfortable. We cannot say enough great things about our tour guide Sandra. We were really impressed by her knowledge of history, attention to detail, level of customer care and driving skills! If you are a history fan or simply want to have great time exploring Portugal, No Map Tours tours are the must. Next time we are in Portugal, we will definetely be touring with Sandra again. Highly recommend! Many thanks to No Map Tours for the great experience!

          Best Transfers Ever!
          I really enjoyed my transfers between Lisbon and Porto with Sandra. She is an excellent driver and also made sure that my luggage was safe when we stopped for sightseeing and meals. The stops were delightful, and Sandra gave me itinerary choices to take into account my difficulty walking uphill, and also my interest in ancient Roman ruins. Sandra's choice of restaurants was excellent, too. Thank you Sandra for two wonderful drives! I hope to see you again. June

          I truly recommend! Luis was very knowledgeable and passionate about Portugal’s history. We were a group of 6 with different needs and Luis made it easy for all of us. His recommendations were spot on. He really made it such a special day for us! Without a doubt I would recommend him to friends and family. You’ll have an amazing time!

          Excellent Drive - Lisbon to Porto, 2 Stops
          Luís was wonderful and he made our vacation extremely special. He was a very professional driver and helped us with our baggage, but more importantly, he gave us plenty of history and insight into Lisbon, Porto and all of our stops in between. He recommended a wonderful place to stop for lunch, and it is still the best food we had in Portugal. When we come back, we look forward to hiring him again! Thank you, Luís!

          Don't miss the chance to see two amazing attractions!
          We chose this tour because we wanted both Regaleira and Pena and this tour did not disappoint. Luis our guide was excellent! Prompt, courteous, had a beautiful vehicle and provided ice cold water for us several times on the hot day we went to Sintra. He was very informative with both facts and stories about what we saw and we very much enjoyed him as our guide. Both Pena Palace and Regaleira are not to be missed when in Sintra.

          Highlight of our 2 weeks in Portugal
          At age 74, I came to Portugal with my family in March 2024 to connect with the land of my Azorean grandparents — and to talk to someone who could explain the country to me. Tour guide Sandra Pestana of No Map Tours checked both boxes. Above all, she’s a superb guide with an encyclopedic knowledge of — and love for — Portuguese history. We learned so much from her during our trip to the Queluz National Palace and the National Palace of Mafra. Equally important, she’s witty, fun, and dedicated to her clients’ comfort. She recommended a wonderful seafood place on the ocean at Ericeira for our lunch. And she never rushed us. Best of all, she was patient and candid with this old Portuguese man from America who had so many questions about his heritage. Our afternoon with Sandra was magical! -David Oliveria

          Extraordinary day in Pena and Quinta de Regaleira.
          We’re so happy we spent the money on this private, all day tour. Our driver and personal tour guide, Luis Oliveira was punctual arriving at 8 in a Mercedes-Benz station wagon and very knowledgeable of all the places he took us to. The Pena castle is a work of art and the Quinta of Regaleira, the grounds and the well were beautiful. Both very different and unique in their styles but well worth the trip. Luis had our entrance tickets for the first slot and we didn’t have to wait on line as many have reported. Luck was on our side with the weather, not too hot or cold, just right. A bit of caution both require walking a lot, up and down stairs, walkways, and cobblestone walkways. Best to be very mobile. We then went to the coast town of Cascais. A very pretty beachside town with many restaurants and shops and of course the beach. We enjoyed every moment! Thanks to Luis who was enthusiastic and very knowledgeable. You could tell he enjoys his job!

          Amazing day with Sandra from No Map Tours
          We had the best day with Sandra! We spent a wonderful 8 hours together, she was a wonderful guide. We were so comfortable and felt like special guests. She shared the wonderful history of Peña Palace and Regaleira, and Portugal in general, with energy, passion and great expression. She gave us wonderful suggestions for coffee and pastry options, lunch and shopping destinations. Sandra is an exceptional driver, she is skilled and very competent. We felt very safe in her capable hands. We could not have been treated better! Our day was truly sensational!

          Private Tour in Sintra
          My husband and I took a tour the day before with a different company. That one was with 6 other travelers. We felt rushed and didn't really get a lot of details about the places we visited. Our guide did not accompany us inside the places we went to and he was basically just a driver. He gave us very little time in Fatima and being Catholics, we were really very disappointed. But NOT with No Maps! We had Sandra as our private tour guide. She wasn't watching the clock - she allowed us as much time as we needed. She accompanied us pretty much everywhere and pointed out interesting facts about Sintra. Sintra is a beautiful, must see place. We were incredibly lucky not to have encountered a huge crowd in any of the places we visited. But that had a lot to do with our guide. She timed where we should be according to her local knowledge of when the mass of humanity would be showing up, for instance, in Pena Palace. Hire No Maps and go to Sintra!

          Private Tour in Evora
          Sandra was an absolute pro and very friendly. She knew a lot not just about Portuguese history but history in general. We had an incredibly great time with her in Evora. She was very comprehensive in explaining the symbolisms of many of the architecture details in the edifices we saw. We never felt rushed. Beyond that, she also took us to the Almendres Cromlech which meant she had to drive her Mercedes Benz on gravel and very uneven road for more than 9 km. She normally doesn't go there but she knew I wanted to see the megaliths so she took us there. We can't take her enough. Obrigada, Sandra and No More Maps!

          Excellent drive to Porto with Luis
          Fantastic day with Luis. We booked a drive to Porto so we could see more of Portugal and are so glad we did. We left our hotel at 9, spent an hour at the charming walled town of Obidos, then stopped at the seaside town Nazare for lunch and a walk along the beach. All before heading to Porto. Luis was terrific; very nice and professional and he took great care of us all day. The car was also very comfortable; a new and spotless Mercedes. Highly recommended.

        Traveled with a group of 4 friends that are often hard to impress on guided tours on Sunday Sept 4, 2022. We had a surprisingly wonderful time! Sandra, our guide, was very organized and knowledgeable. The tour of the castle was efficient and we even had a good amount of free time at all locations. The minibus was clean and had air conditioning, which was great during the hot day. Sandra gave great suggestions on typical dishes to try and recommended a few spots. We are very impressed with the tour and her great driving skills on these treacherous roads in Sintra.

        We had the best day with Luis Oliveira! We highly recommend the private tour of Sintra and Cascais with Pena Palace. Luís went above and beyond—not only did he give an excellent, historical and interesting tour of the magnificent Pena Palace (a must-see), we asked to see smaller towns in the area and he graciously obliged. We love Portuguese pastries and he took us to try his favorite in addition to the famous “pillow” pastry of Sintra. Safe driving is very important to us and his driving was excellent. We were relaxed and there was no rushing. Luis’ lunch recommendation was perfect. We very much enjoyed his conversation and company. You’re in good hands with Luis! We’re very grateful to him for a lovely and memorable day. ☺️

        We highly recommend this tour with Sandra and Luis. It was outstanding. We were a group of four, and we were picked up in Mercedes mini-van at our hotel. Sandra was our guide, and used a headset with microphone to talk with us on the drive to our locations. She provided an outstanding overview and history of the sites we saw, and gave us plenty of time to explore and take pictures. We opted for the tour with separate driver and guide and so glad we did. Sandra escorted us everywhere, while Luis was able to deal with the parking. An efficient use of time and it was nice to have her with us when touring the Pena Castle. Well worth the money. Highly recommend!

        I had an organized private tour for me, my husband, and 12 month old baby to Sintra and Pena palace. I really appreciated Sandra's honesty that a full day tour may be too much for a 12 month old since it is not stroller friendly and steep hills. We had Luis as our driver/tour guide and he was excellent, we enjoyed the guided tour. My 12 month old also enjoyed it and he made sure he was ok every so often. I highly recommend this company if you want a guided private tour.

        We booked a trip to Lisbon last-minute in Feb 2023. While trying to plan a day trip to Sintra, I found this tour and loved the itinerary, description, and reviews. We were picked up at our hotel, driven straight to Sintra to beat the lines, toured the castle, and then led through a day of sight-seeing including the gorgeous coast.

        Luis was a fantastic driver, and he gave us exactly as much of a tour of each place as we wanted. If you are staying in Lisbon and want a stress-free trip to see the sights, I definitely recommend booking this one.

        We recently took a private tour of Sintra Palace and a visit to Cascais. No Map Tours was quickly responsive to our emails, and accommodated all of our needs for the tour, including car seats. Our tour guide and driver, Luis Oliveira could not have been friendlier or more knowledgeable about the areas we visited and their history. He was also very flexible with the needs of our small children. We had so much fun, and also learned a lot! Highly recommend No Map Tours!

        We had the best time with Sandra! Hands down, she is an expert, insightful guide. We went as a family of 4 with 2 teenagers. Sandra’s story telling kept my teenagers so engaged and wanting for more of her narrative! She educated us and made us laugh! Everything that Sandra recommended was top notch. Her service from pick up to drop off is one of the best I’ve seen (and we do travel a bit around the world). Thank you for sharing your wonderful country with us!

        We took three tours with No Map Tours (half day city tour, Sintra & Cascais, and a transfer from Lisbon to Porto). Communications with company was great. They quickly responded to my questions before I booked and followed up with details and confirmation before the tours started. The tours were well-paced and informative, and gave us a great appreciation for Portuguese history and culture. Sandra was our guide for all three tours. She guided us inside Peña Palace and provided many details. She took great care of my elderly parents and adjusted the trips to accommodate their physical limitations and interests. Sandra is also a terrific driver, especially through the narrow streets to Peña Palace. We couldn’t have asked for a better guide and are so glad that we chose No Map Tours for our first visit to Portugal.
