Most Excellent Experience with Eusevio !
Sightsee19359674575, 29-05-2022
We enjoyed our time with Eusevio for one and a half days in Lisbon, Sinatra and Cascais! Eusevio is most gracious, flexible and wants you to have an enjoyable time doing whatever you want to do. We’d love to tour with him again on a future trip to Portugal!
Great tour with Jorge

My mother and I had a wonderful excursion with Jorge. He was very knowledgeable and gave us an excellent historical perspective for the places we visited. We especially enjoyed the ruins of the Temple of Augustus (note the use of the correct name, nod to Jorge). I would book another tour with Eagle Tours, and specifically with Jorge, in a minute. Highly recommended!
Must try it

We had a really nice time in this tour. We learned a lot of new things about Lisbon, Sintra, Cascais and Portugal in general. I totally recommend it.
Great solo tour
Alicia R, 10-12-2019
I traveled with Eusebio from Eagle tours for a solo trip up to Sintra. Eusebio was great at allowing me to reschedule the tour when my inbound flight was delayed for over three hours and allowed me to move the tour to a different day so that I could get the full day sintra experience. He provided a lot of useful information and dropped me off right at the front steps of the sites. He also provided great recommendations for food to eat. If I am in Portugal again I will tour with Eagle tours.
An awesome day tour with Mr. Eusebio Lima
CiscoPonto, 09-09-2019
Wife and I were staying at a hotel located in Caparica, Portugal ( 30 minutes from Lisbon after crossing the 25th April bridge ).
On recommendation from our Hotel we were able to get in touch Eagle Travel Tours, within a few minutes Mr.Eusebio Lima called and we arranged for a day trip to Sintra and Cascais.

Our guide Eusebio picked us up from our Hotel promptly at 9 am, we were so happy that he spoke English and had a friendly personality. During the drive to the sites, Eusebio would explain in detail the history of the towns and sites that we would be visiting, he would point out historic Buildings, Churches, Castles and Monuments. He would stop or slow down the vehicle so that we
could take pictures, he would give us advice regarding where to purchase gifts and restaurants to eat at.

We visited all the sites Eusebio had planned for the day and were preparing to return to our Hotel ( 45 minutes away with no traffic ) when my wife asked about a famous Portuguese pastries ( I think the name of the pastry was "Pastel de Belèm", Eusebio immediately changed our route and headed to Lisbon city where we parked the vehicle and walked to a Bakery/Cafe, there was a long line at the entrance, Eusebio found a way in and we sat down in a few minutes, we had coffee and custard pie ( well I had Beer ). Then we started to drive back to our Hotel crossing a beautiful bridge named the 25th April ( similar to the Golden Gate Bridge in San Francisco).

As we were crossing the bridge Eusebio pointed out a Statue
named Cristo Rei (Christ the King) a Catholic monument located in the city of Almada. Once again the route was changed and we headed to the monument where we took pictures of the statue and scenery.

As we arrived at the hotel we asked Eusebio where we could dine that night and
he recommended a restaurant named "Ponto Final" a 15 minute drive from our hotel and another 15 minutes of walking. We said our goodbyes and the tour was officially complete.

That night we took a Taxi and walked 15 minutes to the "Ponto Final" restaurant,
there was an hour and half wait to be seated outside, we waited 30 minutes and
were seated inside. We ordered seafood and it was delicious, the service was excellent, I would rate this restaurant first class, reservations are recommended.


I have to say the view from the restaurant was awesome, we could see
Lisbon city, the bridge and river, only issue we encountered was the walk back to the taxi station, the path was dark and had to use my iPhone to light the walkway, no big deal since there were 2 dozen people who were also walking to
get a taxi.

Overall it was a fun day and very relaxing, Eusebio was very accommodating and friendly, a family man with a great attitude. We would highly recommend him to all who visit Lisbon.
