          Mostly a GREAT trip!
          The tour we did was a small group (8), for 8.5 hours to Sintra, Cabo da Roca and Cascais. We were picked up at our hotel by Ricardo--who was an amazing tour guide! We loved his stories and in-depth experiences that he shared with us. The only unfortunate events that occurred during our time was some miscommunication between the activity provider and some of the guests causing a bit of a delay to the start. The other unfortunate event was that our van broke down after the Pena Palace tour and we had to say goodbye to Ricardo because he found us another tour guide to complete the day while he stayed with the van. We were sorry to say goodbye because we were really enjoying his passion for Portugal! He gets 5-stars from us! Thank you, Ricardo! All this meant some delays and it extended our tour by a few hours but we were able to see a lot, experience a phenomenal restaurant recommended to us by Ricardo and meet new friends!

          I did this small group tour with my sister and it was a fantastic experience all round. From start to finish, the communication with Sofia and later with the tour guide Jose Marques was indeed excellent. Jose was quite knowledgeable and provided plenty of insight into the history of Sintra's Pena Palace, Cabo do Roca, and Cascais while also lacing his story telling with intermittent jokes and riddles. We had plenty of time for photo ops and he was kind enough to take a pic of the entire group and share it with us. Being a small group was comfortable for everyone as we tried to befriend and keep an eye out for each other. The tour was at a reasonably comfortable pace with enough time to explore and wander the sights. I would certainly recommend Lisbon Native Tours to anyone interested including for single travelers.

          Fantastic small group tour
          I did this small group tour with my sister and it was a fantastic experience all round. From start to finish, the communication with Sofia and later with the tour guide Luis Pinto-Coelho was indeed excellent. Luis was quite knowledgeable and provided plenty of insight into the history and culture of Portugal in several languages for the benefit of multilingual tourists in the group. Being a small group was comfortable for everyone as we tried to befriend each other. The tour was at a reasonably comfortable pace with enough time to explore and wander the sights.

          Luis Pinto is a guide with historical knowledge about Portugal and Europe.
          We took complete Lisbon City tour with Luis Pinto. Our hotel pickup was on time. The day before we got a whatsapp message with the pickup time with our hotel. Luis Pinto our guide is extremely knowledgeable not only about Lisbon but also Portugal and entire European history. He is very passionate and very articulate. He is fluent in 7 languages including English, French, Portuguese, Spanish and others. I would not hesitate even for a moment take other tours with him. It was a pleasure having him as our guides. I had many questions and he answered them well. Recommend him strongly. I was in Portugal for 10 days and took many tours. Without a doubt Luis was the best.

          Great tour with great host. Would recommend to all.
          Guide was very nice and very knowledgeable and the tour covered a large area of Lisbon so when it finished you did feel you had seen a lot of the city. Pick up and drop off at hotel was a great service. Only negative was at times the journey was very bumpy as roads not great and cobbled. Van/bus was not the most comfortable suspension wise.

        My husband and I did this tour whilst on our honeymoon in Lisbon and we were both in agreement, this tour was THE best day we had in Lisbon!
        Our tour guide Andre Feldman honestly made the tour what it was. He was packed with knowledge about everywhere we went which really added some substance to the tour, we weren't just looking at pretty buildings, we were learning the history behind them.
        He made our whole group laugh constantly and all the stories made the car journey's feel like they were just minutes long.

        We were picked up at 7:45am (we were a few minutes late but Andre patiently waited outside)
        We picked up the rest of the group, all of whom were wearing masks and we were frequently offered sanitizer which was reassuring.
        We made our way to the sites listed, had a little coffee break at a cafe at around 10am and then a stop for lunch at around 2pm.

        The tour was amazing! We thoroughly enjoyed it, I would HIGHLY recommend this tour if you're in Lisbon. Hoping you get Andre Feldman as your tour guide - he really makes the tour well worth it!

        Thank you for an amazing day Andre,

        - Rav & Sandeep!

        This is simply a must-do trip. Other trips offer a central location pick up but this trip has pick up at your hotel. The tour advertises that you will be in a group with a common language, however ours was a small mixed language group (Cuban, Spanish and English), our guide spoke both Spanish and English so it wasn’t an issue at all.
        Our guide, Luis was excellent. A very funny, intelligent, multi lingual, knowledgeable man who was a joy to behold (and a former part time motorbike journalist as well). He ensured that no one missed out lingually.
        This tour ensures that you will see much as possible from the town of Sintra to the western most point of Europe to the stunning Palace of Pena.
        Lunch was at the beautiful Cascais and again great advice from Luis to avoid the tourist restaurants, we found an excellent local cafe.
        This tour was more than value for money. Yes, you have to pay to go in the sites but the price of admission is cheap. Luis also slightly moved the itinerary around to avoid the crowds which meant less time queueing but also in the current climate more safe.
        This tour is highly recommended. Thank you for an extremely memorable day.

        Luis was our guide and we loved him! It was so lovely to have a guide to not only drive us around but he was so knowledgeable and able to provide insight to every stop we made and he provided excellent recommendations on the best places to visit and tourist traps to avoid. I'm so glad we booked a tour instead of relying on prerecorded audio tours that can't answer our questions. Luis did a fantastic job and we absolutely recommend this to anyone wanting a more personalized experience.

        We were picked up at our door exactly when we were told the van would arrive. The tour guide Andre was quite a character and very funny and informative. We had two other couples and he found them quite quickly. We had plenty of time for stops for coffee and bathroom breaks. Andre imparted an incredible amount of knowledge in a very engaging and humorous way. Definitely held our attention! We got enough time at every stop to see what there was to see. I would definitely recommend taking the shuttle up to the Pena Palace from the gate! Again, a wonderful tour with a great guide! I would not hesitate to take this tour again or recommend it to any of my friends or family! Thanks Andre! It was so great meeting and spending the day with you!

        My significant other and I booked this on a whim and we didn't really know what to expect. It ended up being such a fantastic day! The fact that it was only 8 people made it more intimate. Our tour guide, Jose, was the icing on the cake. He was engaging, informative and best of all he had a great sense of humor. He truly made the tour a very fun event. Sadly we were only in Portugal for 2.5 days (not nearly enough time!) but this tour allowed us to see the outer parts of Lisbon so we felt like we were able to get a good amount in, considering the short stay. I definitely recommend this tour without reservation!

        This is a fabulous tour. Andre Feldman was our guide, picked us up at our hotel and did a great job of narrating the tour while interjecting his unique sense of humor to keep us all entertained. Every stop was a highlight including the picturesque town of Sintra, the Quinta da Regaleira, Cabo da Roca, and the Pena Palace. Lunch was on our own in the seaside resort town of Cascais where my wife and I had an excellent meal at a seafood restaurant. The tour is advertised as being 8 hrs but ours was almost 11 hrs. This was partly due to a light rain which delayed us in Sintra a bit. Keeping the length to 10 hrs or less would be our recommendation as we almost missed our dinner reservations. Also, the van that transported us was small so we were all packed in with no option for social distancing which made us a little nervous.

        This is one unforgettable experience. Our tour began from our hotel with Andre Feldman. Where we went in a mini bus to Sintra. Andre is very knowledgeable, while interpreting his unique sense of humor to keep us all entertained. With every stop being so interesting and lots of beautiful views with plenty of opportunities for memory photographs. Andre dropped us off for a well deserved lunch on our own, where me and my husband enjoyed a meal in a lovely restaurant in Cascais. The tour is being advertised at 8hours but ours was well over the 8 hours. Definitely worth every penny! Yes the mini bus is small, but masks are worn at all times. Andre makes sure you use hand sanitizer before you enter. Thank you so much for assisting us with making the most out of our trip to Sintra. Make memories that will stay with us forever.

        I am not exaggerating when I say I wish I could give an extra star! The full day tour was organised excellently by the company and I thoroughly enjoyed the 8 hour time with my friends on this tour. Very prompt transportation, extremely polite and friendly interaction, intricately detailed guiding and explanation of locations and tourist attractions were provided to my group. The entire duration was very well planned out, and we got to cover 5 locations in a single day, without feeling rushed at any point. There was ample resting time provided between places and sufficient time for pictures as well. I would highly recommend this tour to anyone who asks me regarding a visit to Portugal.

        I would like to give a big cheers to Luis Pinto (my guide on the tour) as well. I haven't come across a guide with such astute knowledge on the history of the world. He is very sincere at his work, has a great sense of humor and manages to keep one engaged in his tour throughout. Loved every bit.

        We had a great time with André - our lovely Dr. Feldman - in Sintra. He gave us astoinishing insights about the history of Sintra and the most peculiar stories about the masons and their beliefs. André‘s words brought the history to life and we felt as if we had been there.
        We highly recommend spending the Day with Dr. Feldman; not only you will discover beautiful places but also experience them first-hand with André.

        I would definitely recommend this Sintra Trip. 😊 Luis is a great tour guide. You will learn a lot from him and fully appreciate not only the beauty of the place but the historical meaning behind it. The tour is worth every penny as you got a good transportation to go to places (it is not easy to drive there if you don’t know the way around) plus you’ll save loads of time. Luis is friendly, informative and a great driver too. My friends and I enjoyed this trip!😊
