sintra to cascais : paul from usa | google reviews

“My wife and I took the private tour of Sintra and surrounding area. It was one of the most memorable experiences of my life and a day we will not forget. This is mainly attributed to the professionalism of Classic Portugal Tours. They reached out to use days before regarding our itinerary. They made themselves very easy to contact, by consistently displaying their phone number and picking up each and every time I called. Our tour guide, Gonçalo, was exceptionally knowledgable, earning a degree in history and more than qualified to lead our tour. He was able to answer any and all questions. He was passionate about the subject matter, which was very refreshing. The itinerary did not make you feel too rushed. It was the perfect duration. The car was clean, spacious, with a glass roof to take in the landscapes. I could not say enough positive things about Classic Portugal Tours, a highly recommended way to take in culture, cuisine, history and all Portugal has to offer.” – 5* reviews of Classic Portugal

´wonderful day from lisbon´ | tripadvisor

My friends and I had a great time on an Evora & Wine Tasting, 1 day tour! We started the day with a stop at Mainova winery, where we toured the winery and tasted wine in their beautiful tasting room. After this, we stopped in the cute, small town of Arraiolos for some coffee and a pastry. We ended the day with our guide, Gonçalo, taking us on a tour of Evora. We had so much fun spending the day with Gonçalo – he was very knowledgeable and helpful, and we learned a lot about Portugal while on this tour! Additionally, Gonçalo was very easy going and let us take our time and enjoy the moment while wine tasting and exploring Evora. I would definitely recommend this tour and our guide, Gonçalo, for anyone looking for a nice/easy day tour from Lisbon! – 5* reviews of Classic Portugal

"Amazing views" : vero from miami, florida | tripadvisor

“My sister and I absolutely loved taking this private tour. Our guide Gonçalo was AMAZING! Very knowledgeable about the history, friendly and very outgoing. He let us take our time with pics, pace and overall time which we truly enjoyed and appreciated. Private tours are definitely better than group tours since we have more one and one with your guide. We definitely would have not had the same experience as we did had we done a group one. I recommended this tour to anyone, the views of these locations were spectacular and hopefully you get fortunate enough to have Gonçalo as your tour guide. Truly a wonder individual. Cheers and happy touring!!” – 5* reviews of Classic Portugal

"Beautiful Day" : cami from New York City | tripadvisor

“We went into the tour blind and left with a deep appreciation for Portugal’s history, food, and unbelievable vistas. Diogo was such a joy to spend the day with and was very patient with our questions (on pretty much everything!). He took us to an incredible seafood restaurant in nazaré, and was also accommodating to our dietary preferences (I am a pescatarian, but my mom does not like fish, which you can imagine poses a few challenges when traveling together). After lunch, we went to the top of the cliffs to see a breathtaking view of the sea and home of the gigantic “cannon wave”. My mother absolutely loved the tour – perfect mix of walking and driving. Definitely recommend! Thank you for a great day!” – 5* reviews of Classic Portugal

"Great private tour" : Philip from Atlanta, Georgia | tripadvisor

“We booked this trip via TripAdvisor. Immediately after booking we received a confirmation. The day before the tour we received both an email confirmation and an additional confirmation via the TripAdvisor app. We love the confidence that the confirmation provided. Carlos picked us up on time at the hotel and clearly explained the trip itinerary. He speaks great English and the car was clean and spacious. He provided a great balance of history and quite time for the driving portions. Obidos was stunning and Carlos provided a history of the town and then we were allotted flex time to wander and explore at our leisure. We loved that Carlos provided flexibility to make the tour customized for our interests and time table. Alcobaca and Nazareth were beautiful as well and we were enchanted to view the wooden figure of Mary claimed to have been created by Joseph. His dining suggestion for lunch was delicious. This tour is a great value for a private tour and we highly recommend Carlos and this tour package!” – 5* reviews of Classic Portugal

"Top level tour service" : Jesse from Wisconsin | tripadvisor

“Our family signed up for three days of tours while staying in the Lisbon area and truly couldn’t have asked for better service. Classic Portugal is a small family business. The attention we got was completely individualized. Their English was completely fluent. The prices were affordable compared to other options out there, but what we got was above and beyond. Some tours seem pretty anxious to wrap things up by the stroke of an eight-hour day, but these guys were genuinely excited about showing us everything we wanted to see and even ran over when we were game for it. Carlos and Bruno felt much more like friends than just guides after a couple of days together. We got to do everything we were promised but the tours were also flexible and adapted to what we wanted to do. The guys made an effort to connect with everyone in the family, not just the grownups. You can’t do better than Classic Portugal. Enjoy your visit.” – 5* reviews of Classic Portugal

"best tour guide ever" : janey from australia | tripadvisor

“We had been to Lisbon a couple of years ago but on a cruise. We had a guide for that visit and he was good until we met Carlos on our 2nd trip to Lisbon. Carlos is a GREAT guide. He was punctual and picked us up in a nice clean car. He also provided ample water and wifi as well. Carlos was friendly and full of information. He took us to all the highlights of Evora. The Almendres rocks was an interesting comparison to the Hedgestone though you can walk right up to the rocks. Carlos took us to a restaurant that served authentic Portuguese food and even stayed and recommended what to order. We thoroughly enjoyed lunch in Evora. It was a long and full day but one that we will remember for a long time to come. Carlos set the standard for what a great tour guide should be and I would give him a perfect 10!” – 5* reviews of Classic Portugal

"Sensational tour" : Maryann from Malta | tripadvisor

“After a fantastic trip to the Azores, we where keen to see as much as possble of Lisbon. Thanks to Classic Portugal we managed to plan the day weeks before online. Hayley was so kind, always answered our questions and helped us with our plans. The day arrived and we found a young smart smiling man waiting for us and off we went. Carlos was very knowledgeable, patient and flexible according to our desires!! Carlos how many times did we change our plan? Going up and down the lift haha!! You were really patient and for that we will always remember this beautiful tour of your beautiful city!! After a fantastic day with great food and pasties of Belem we were dropped off to the airport which to us was God sent, saving us a lot of time therefore spending more time discovering Lisbon. Thank you dear Hayley and Carlos, hope to meet again for the shepherd experience!!” – 5* reviews of Classic Portugal
