The landmarks of the Cascais area are the vintage summer havens that certified its strip of coastline as the first Portuguese trendy resort. Cascais today is more than ever proud of its good old days, but it is also a city that grew a lot and now faces many challenges concerning its identity and heritage. Hence a pleasant but also exhilarating walk by the Portuguese Riviera, always swinging between nostalgia, envy and critical questioning.

Une semaine dans la région et trois visites avec Luis pour avoir un regard différent sur des sites très connus. Luis est plein de bons conseils alors vous pouvez faire appel à ses services les yeux fermés.

Luis was a great tour guide. Really enjoyed how personalized the tour and experience was. Loved seeing the architecture and learning about the history of the town and how it came to be what it is today. Any questions we had were answered on the spot and in detail along with examples. Along with being a very knowledgeable tour guide, he was also a great photographer that captured beautiful pictures of my husband and I.
Fascinating and engaging!

This was an unexpected gem of a tour. Luis is a history teacher and it shows, in the best way. He doesn't just point out interesting spots but tells the story of Cascais in the sweep of Portuguese history, and as a result, you get a deeper appreciation for this charming beach town. Luis is also very knowledgeable about local spots and other cities, and gave us some great recommendations. Highly recommend, would happily take another tour with him!
A wonderful informative day with Luís

We were picked up at the meeting point by Luís on time. He is a very knowledgable friendly and helpful guide and provided a lot of historical and general information. He answered every question thoroughly and elaborated on our interest by adapting the route through Cascais.
We would like to thank Luís a lot for that stunning day.
