The best way to peek at the Local Culture and history outside Lisbon

This was great from start to finish. The two tour guides are father and son. They are lovely and share a nice energy. They know their history and provided detailed answers to any questions we asked! The best spot was the Dinosaur foot prints on the very steep landscape right by the water, what a sight to see! We had an amazing lunch inspired by their recommendations for which fish / what species is in season at the moment. It was great to dive into a more folkloric scene than what most tours have to offer. The surprise additional stop at the end was awesome too!
Capo espichel tour

The tour with André is not the conventional tour around the most visited places. He drove us around with a very fun off road jeep to wonderful places:
A castle with an amazing view and one of the nicest church in portugal with azulejos inside, and after that we visited visit capo espichel, with its wonderful church and the dinosaur footprints, located in a magical place with a beautiful view in front of the ocean.
Our trip ended in a very cool and not crowded beach, where you can jump into the ocean if you'd like to.
Moreover André is a fantastic person, very helpful and we had a lot of fun with him.
It's not a conventional tour, but it's worth it.

Highly recommend half day adventure with an enthusiastic tour guide.

Spent 6 nights in Sesimbra and after day 4 we decided to branch out from spending another day at the beach. Andre was more than accommodating by agreeing to take us on such short notice and picked us up from our hotel only a few hours after calling to enquire about a tour.

We spent the afternoon driving to multiple locations along the cape of Espichial including the Sanctuary of Nossa Senhora, the capes Lighthouse, beaches and our favourite the Dinosaur footprints. Andre was gracious enough to take lots of photos of us throughout our tour.

Andre was able to tell us all about the region including its colourful history and flora and fauna. As well as being knowledgeable, Andre is very passionate about his country and takes great pride in the area having grown up here. He even has very good taste in music as we were treated to a banging soundtrack while driving between locations.

We look forward to returning to Sesimbra in the future and going on another of the Look Around Jeep Tours with Andre and his team.
Very nice experience

We really enjoyed this amazing tour with our guide André. He took the time for everything, showed a lot of nice places and gives a lot of information. I recommend booking this tour when you are staying in Lissabon.
Loved this amazing jeep tour!

We were picked up at our hotel in Sesimbra by an enthusiastic tour guide Andre! After having a coffee in a local bar and some explanations about the tour, we were driven to the most beautiful places of western Europe/Portugal. Nature is amazing here, and the combination with ancient places like the Castle and Church with Pelgrimshouses at Cabo Espichel is great! Andre also showed us two places where we could see the dinosaur foot prints. He gave some additional information and made some beautiful photos of our small group which he shared immediately with us. He was not in a hurry and we had a lovely time in thus amazing place. Great tour!
