Wow! Fabulous day out of Lisbon! Andrew (Andre) was the best tour guide. He gave great recommendations for lunch and then places to eat and what to see is Lisbon for the rest of our trip. The wine tastings were very different but both very good and informative. The views in Arrábida and Sesimbra were wonderful and we had a nice lunch of wonderful seafood where he recommended. It was a treat to stop off and see the bridge and the Cristo Rey monument up close. Andrew took photos for us and was just a wonderful tour guide. I learned so much about Portugal and its people you would never get from a book. I’m so happy I booked this tour and had Andrew as a guide. It is like having a friend now in Portugal. Highly highly recommend taking this tour!

We were here for a quick 'sampler' trip of Lisbon, and booked this excursion to get a little bit out of town and also to learn about and taste some good wine from Portugal. What a delight! Nuno was a fabulous guide- knew much about the area, the wine, and was SO personable! He is clearly committed to guests getting the full experience, and I say a huge THANK YOU from these two American gringos....I will send anyone else your way, and am enjoying all the pics of the lovely beach town.....AND all the wine putchased!!

I thoroughly recommend this tour as a great way to see more of Portugal than just Lisbon. Went out into country side and visited two great but different wineries plus a fantastic castle and many other things. Nuno Machado was the perfect guide and went to so much trouble to make the tour so enjoyable and personal. Book this tour and ask for Nuno

I took this tour on May 22nd and was extremely pleased with the entire experience. We started at Hard Rock Cafe where we met with our guide. After getting in the van the first thing he did was ask us to introduce ourselves, tell where we were from and then we were off. Along the way out of the city he pointed out different points of interest and answered questions about everything from the unemployment rate to information about Portugal’s universities. He continued to give us information about what we could expect during our tour. The first stop was the castle of Palmers that is now a hotel. He walked us throughout the area giving us more information about the history of the area and pointed out surrounding areas. Next stop was the beaches along the Atlantic, then on to our first winery, Jose Maria Da Fonseca. A guide from the winery walked us through the history and facilities and then to the tasting room. We tasted two of their wines, the Periquita Reserve and a white which I don’t remember the name of. Then on to lunch at a small fishing village on the Atlantic. The fresh fish was wonderful and the views spectacular. After lunch we has a bit of time to do some shopping and then on to our second winery, a small fairly new facility, but the wine was great. Our guide did the pouring and presentation at this winery. He went into depth about each of the 4 wines that were presented. From there we started back to Lisbon with one stop left before arriving back in the city. The last stop was at the Monument of Cristo Rei across the river from Lisbon. Spectacular views and spiritual place. Then back to Lisbon. The tour is all day but the time went by quickly due to our guide continually sharing information and answering question. Well worth the time and cost. Would do this tour again and and tour with our guide.

great tour but timing an issue because schedule was not followed completely. Matthew needed to adjust the schedule several times and in one case had to wait for another mini bus. MATTHEW DID HIS BEST BUT TIMING CAUSED US TO GET BACK OVER AN HOUR LATE. He was very knowledgable about wines and gave a good speech during the tasting

We had to walk to the pick up point but it was well worth it, plus the pickup point was not very far from our hotel. Our tour guide Jose was the best. He was attentive, knowledgeable and a really sweet person. Lots of questions were asked by the other occupants of the van and Jose answered all the questions and additionally shared the country's history. The drive through the countryside was beautiful. We visited 2 wineries, the smaller one before lunch and the larger after lunch. There was a tour guide for the larger winery. Jose recommended lunch at a nice restaurant in the seaside village. We had an interesting and delicious seafood meal served directly from a very used old pot. We continued on to one other stop before heading back to the hotel. This was a really nice trip. If you decide to choose this trip which you should ask for Jose, he is the best.

Great tour. Juao, Paulo, Salvatore, and Ricardo were great guides. If you are looking for a nice day trip outside of Lisbon this is a great way to spend your day. Just to set expectations, I wouldn't describe this as a wine tour, rather a day trip with stops at two wineries. That said, it's lovely, and you will be back in time for dinner and going out back in Lisbon.
