Lisbon Private Tours and Experiences Hosted by Local Experts

If you’re a Context traveler, you’ve just enjoyed the perfect experience of Lisbon in a Day, where your Expert perfectly executed every detail of the itinerary – tailored to suit your group’s interests, that you filled our team in on while you were booking. 

Tomorrow you could be waking up early to enjoy a day trip to Sintra, with many extravagant villas and fairytale-esque castles to enjoy. The history of this unique region is brought to life by your local expert, who guides you through this charming village, which was once the summer retreat of Portuguese royalty.

Jose was a PHENOMENAL guide - we could not have asked for any better! He was so passionate about Portuguese history that it came alive for us during our Sintra tour. As my boyfriend and I peppered him with all sorts of questions while we toured Regaleira and the National Palace, he knew *everything*, and managed to provide not just the history of Sintra but the history of Portugal from it's historical founding to just about present day. His introduction to this country really set the stage for our knowledge across the whole rest of our trip, and we couldn't be more grateful! Highly recommend everyone tour with Jose!
Estela was amazing! She is so well versed in Portugal's history and traditions. It was a wonderful way to begin our trip. Plus she was fun! Just a fantastic experience!
Tiago is both an expert historian and raconteur! Our tour was terrific!
