Quinta de Alcube winery

One of the wineries you will visit is Quinta de Alcube. A wine cellar owned by a family for over a century (since 1913). It is a traditional cellar, that produces up to 350,000 litters per year.

WOW! EXCELLENT!

I work with Joao to develop a 2 day tour for my group - 6 senior women age 71 - 81. Joao and I talked about the physical abilities of our "band of sisters" - his suggestions were thoughtful and we ended with a trip that synched well with our varied interests and strengths. Maia was our guide for both days and she was wonderful - full of history, stories, and much love for her country. My personal favorite place was Cascais, a perfect beach town situated between Lisbon and Sintra - I could easily spend a week exploring, using Cascais as my base. Thank you Joao and Maia for giving us so many memories - safe to say we will all be back!

Joao D.

Thank you so very much for your review, dear Lynn. It was a joy building and making the tour for you. Our guide Maia also loved her “Golden Girls” group… :-) Glad you enjoyed your stay in Lisbon! Hope to have you back soon to our Portugal Warmest Regards, Joao Dickmann

Custom Sintra Tour

Joao was so helpful and accommodating in helping me create a custom private Sintra sightseeing tour for me and my husband. He gave us great recommendations on the best time to go to each place we wanted to visit. Rodrigo, our guide for the day, was also wonderful. He was incredibly friendly and extremely knowledgable on the history of Portugal. We had a wonderful tour and were so appreciative of his time. We would highly recommend Joao and his team for your sightseeing tour.

Joao D.

Thank you very much for taking some time to write a review, dear Jessica. It is always important for us to know how we are doing. Glad that our guide Rodrigo gave you a good time in our beautiful Lisbon and Sintra. Hope to have you back soon to explore other locations and experiences. Warmest Regards, Joao Dickmann

If you want a super experience...

... then explore Sintra with Joao. We could not have immersed in the beauties and the history of the places we visited if we tried to do it ourselves. With our fantastic private guide, Joao, we learned a lot about the places. Absolute flexible guide, excellent speaker, you won't miss a word. Definitely recommended.

Joao D.

First of all, thank you very much dear Csaba for taking some time to write a review! I´m glad that you enjoyed your visit to our lovely Sintra. It was a pleasure making the tour for you, and hope to have you back in the near future. Warmest Regards and stay safe, Joao Dickmann

Tour to Sintra

Joao was friendly and very knowledgeable. We really got a good understanding of Portugal's history, as he was born and raised there and had some great insight. The drive to Sintra was beautiful with a stop along the way to a castle. Overall, it was a perfect day and we learned a lot. Would highly recommend Joao for any tour in or out of Portugal.

Joao D.

Thank you very much for your review of our day together, dear Ann. It was our pleasure to be able to show you our unique Sintra with its history, and natural beauty (as it is one of our main national parks). Waiting for you here in Portugal for your next visit... Warmest Regards, Joao Dickmann
