Best tour and tour guide
We have traveled extensively and have been on plenty of guided tours and have met our share of experiences and inexperienced tour guides. Andre Feldman in with Lisbon Tours, was AMAZING. We lucked out! He made every effort to make sure that we had an enjoyable time for both our Lisbon and Sintra tours. He was very knowledgable, really gave us the nitty gritty of what we were seeing and experiencing. The icing on the cake was his sense of humor. At the end of the tour, we had become friends and if we are ever to go back to Lisbon again, I would definitely be in touch. I highly recommend Andre for your tours in Portugal. He was awesome!

A delightful and unforgettable experience with Andre Feldman.
My family with two little girls had an unforgettable experience with Andrè Feldman. His passion and knowledge is undeniable. He has a unique ability to relate events and historical characters with people from real life or movies which made the stories come to life and memorable. He has a really good sense of humor and was able to connect with my girls who enjoyed the tour as much as we did. From the get go, he shared history of Lisbon which was both interesting and informative, from the ancient aqua ducts to the sidewalks, he made every effort to point out things we would have missed or not expect to have a cultural or historical significance. He provided practical and useful advise during the tour to help us maximize time and experience but always allowed us to decide what we wanted. He followed covid protocol by keeping his masks on and provided hand sanitizers before we got back on the vehicle. He took his time and we never felt rushed. In fact, I felt kind of bad that the tour ended later than scheduled. What an experience! Andrè will forever be in our family’s Lisbon lexicon. True 5 stars.

Highly recommended Trip to Sintra with André alias Dr. Feldman
Nov. 2021 • Couples
We had a great time with André - our lovely Dr. Feldman - in Sintra. He gave us astoinishing insights about the history of Sintra and the most peculiar stories about the masons and their beliefs. André‘s words brought the history to life and we felt as if we had been there.
We highly recommend spending the Day with Dr. Feldman; not only you will discover beautiful places but also experience them first-hand with André.

Amazing Sintra tour
Nov. 2021 • Friends
Luis was a great guide for our Sintra tour today, he was so knowledgeable and provided an amazing tour to these incredible sites on our last day in Lisbon! Thank you!
We walked through the gardens and were able to capture stunning photos of the Pena palace! Lovely experience and highly recommend this tour to anyone looking to get out of the city and see the beautiful town of Sintra and surrounding countryside!
The best part of having a local guide is his knowledge on the short cuts around each site! Thanks Luis!!

Best Sintra Tour
Nov. 2021 • Couples
We had a fantastic day with Luis - his historical knowledge was a huge bonus. Before we even left, we got a note from the agency saying that Cascais had a marathon the day of our tour and we wouldn’t be able to visit. They kindly offered a full refund, which we declined - that wasn’t at all the purpose of the tour for us. That being said, Luis made sure it happened by reorganizing our day! He went above and beyond to make sure we all had an amazing time. The locations themselves are a must see! I wasn’t that knowledgeable about Lisbon and surrounding area previously, so if you’re unsure of what to do, this is a must. Even had a cab driver tell me that after arrival!

It was a great trip, with many delightful insights and fun moments! André Feldman, the psychiatrist, psychologist, therapist, tour guide and problem solver gifted us with a fantastic day throughout Portuguese and masonic history, amazed us with his encyclopedic knowledge and made us laugh all the time! To put it short and in his own words: he’s Oh My God!

Brilliant full day guided tour
Nov. 2021 • Couples
Wonderful full day trip in small mini bus. Just 7 of us. Luis, our driver and guide with his 6 languages and an absolute encyclopaedic knowledge was unbelievable. We had time to see the sites us tourists expected and time to enjoy a leisurely lunch in Cascais. Such a brilliant day.

Awful Start. Decent Tour.
The initial 20 minutes of the tour started well. We had picked up the 6 tour members and were just outside Lisbon when our guide’s phone rang. The tour operator informed our guide that he had to go back to Lisbon to pick up more people. It took us over a half an hour in heavy morning traffic to pick up the two additional people. Once we got back on track we had already lost an hour. This set a bad tone for the whole day and threw everyone off. I wish the tour operator would have handled it differently, like getting an Uber for the two additional people so they could have met us in Sintra. I would have rather had an additional hour to explore Sintra then being cramped in the back of the tour van. The rest of the tour was good but there a lot of other tour companies and I am not sure I would go with this company again.
