Trip Report 10-Hr Auto Tour o Lisbon,Portugal

Jump to last reply

A couple of years ago we got a tip from Fodors re a person who would give us an auto tour around Dubrovnik (Capt. Nikola... he was terrific and more cost-effective and certainly convenient than big busses for 3 couples for 5 days before we got our own van and went on our way thru the islands,etc.) ;

Now we have a tip for anyone wanting to see Lisbon, Sintra and many other places in between by car: his name is Mario Goncalves... young, educated, affable guy... has his own car/cab with GPS,etc

He took us (2 couples on a 10-hr tour of Sintra and environs all the way back to Lisbon... and parts of Lisbon for $50 Euros each x 4 people... again, far better than bus trips covering only a portion of what we saw and for shorter times).

Mario then picked the two of us couples up at different times to go to the airport later... reliable, punctual, knowledgeable about what we were seeing,etc.

Knows English, Spanish, French... and of course, Portugese

He has no idea we're doing this: mario.glvs@gmail.com
