Excellent sun soaked day in the countryside

Had a great day out on this tour. The weather gods were definitely smiling upon us as we whizzed along the rolling hills of fresh flowers, vineyards, and lavender.

Top down, wind in my hair, and music playing. We saw a waterfall, a magical/traditional village, wandered along the sea aside & sampled lovely food & wine. Our hosts were very kind and accommodating.

One thing of note: wear comfortable, practical shoes especially for the waterfall excursion.
Great day out

AMAZING! we went on the tour today Diogo, Rita and gorgeous pooch Musa are the most perfect hosts... the wine was amazing, the food is perfect all local and home made (Rita's bacaulho is the best!) So friendly, professional and knowledgeable highly recommend!
Fantastic experience!

This tour is a MUST DO to get away from the heat and the crowds!

The best part of the experience was Diogo and Rita, who were exceedingly kind hosts. And little Musa the dog was a wonderful source of smiles.

To me, the second-best part was the beach town of Ericeira.

Driving through the countryside with the wind in your hair, talking with Diogo and Rita, and listening to tunes together was also super-relaxing. It really helped me get into vacation mode.
A great experience!

We went on a tour as a part of celebrating my mothers 60th birthday. Diogos wife Rita made a great cake for the celebration! The food, the drinks, the views, the experience. it was all great and well worth half a day! We saw a lot of the region that we would never have found otherwise.
A day to remember

Diogo, Rita, and their beloved furry companion Musa showed us exceptional Portuguese hospitality.

This experience was a countryside adventure, gastronomic journey, and cultural experience all wrapped up in one.

They picked us up from the Sintra train station in their cool little Citroen. Once inside, we were off. We explored the countryside , visited a scenic waterfall, and talked about all things Portugal. I was like a little kid again, taking in all the sights, asking about the history, the culture, the values of Portuguese people.

One of the most striking things about the trip was when I asked Diogo "What is your favorite country in Europe to visit?" He said "Portugal." I am a die-hard patriot but even I don't say that about my own country. I could tell that they have a deep love and appreciation for their country, its food, and its history. This tells me that there is much more to explore in Portugal and I believe that, if you're going to plan a trip, start with Diogo, Rita, and Musa!

We explored a restored village called Mata Pequena and had a delicious spread of local cheeses, chorizo, bread, bacalhau, wine, and my favorite: Ginja (a sour-cherry based liquer). Everything was fresh, delicious, and satisfying and came straight from the land itself. It made me happy to see Portuguese people returning to the land and reinvigorating old villages and farms. This is absolutely vital to the health of the land and the culture. I'm still ranting and raving about the Ginja and all the delicious food!!! The conversation was great as well, Diogo and Rita are both pleasant and know a great deal about history, philosophy, and gastronomy.

After our lunch we went to Ericeira, a beach side town that has views like you wouldn't believe. We saw the vast expanse of the Atlantic Ocean, beautiful calm waters that invoked a sense of belonging, as if our European ancestors were speaking to us through nature. While there, we tried a delicious and one of a kind custard pastry that was both crispy and creamy and pleased the palate. Many have tried to replicate this pastry, none have succeeded to surpass its uniqueness and traditional quality.

We were able to see the majestic and historic Mafra site and stood in awe of the marble structures, impressive not just for their size but in their adherence to the principles of geometry, symmetry, and beauty.

Because of this trip, we returned to the Sintra area for a second time during our 10 day trip. We just loved the mountains, the hills, the fields of green, the quaint buildings interlaced within classical, beautiful, and time-honored European architecture.

Life is good in Portugal and if you want to learn more about it then you must book with Diogo and Rita. They are a wonderful young couple that radiate positive energy and will make your entire experience pleasant.

Agorasim! The Portuguese equivalent of "now we're talkin'!" Enjoy your time with this tour and be sure to pack a camera for all the views and vistas!
