A lovely day exploring Portugal!
Raymond_O
, Feb 2020
We had a wonderful day touring two different wineries. The first one is in a cute little town and the winery was very boutique-ish. Just lovely and the wine was delightful. Our guide Paulo was perfect! Very engaging. He took us to a small authentic Portuguese restaurant for lunch and ordered for us. It was a very authentic meal, and quite a treat for us! The second winery was in the country with beautiful sweeping views of hills and valley and the vineyard. We absolutely loved this tour and highly recommend if you can get Paulo as your guide.

Thank you very much for writing this review! It was our pleasure to be able to give you a enjoyable day in the Lisbon´s Northern Wine Region. It is very rural, away from the "hustle" of Lisbon´s city tourism... ;-) Thank you very much and hope to have you back soon. Paulo will be waiting for you... :-) Regards, Joao Dickmann

Thank you very much for your kind review, dear Cheryl! Lisbon´s northern wine region is a not very explored region, neither their wines. But being part of our 12 national wine regions, they are all great! ;-) Warmest Regards and hope to have you back in Portugal soon, Joao Dickmann

This tour was an absolutely wonderful experience for my wife and myself. Having Paolo as our private tour guide made this an experience we will talk about for years to come and share with our family and friends. Paolo is so passionate about Lisboa and the surrounding area it gave us a much richer experience and understanding of Portugal's beauty. The wineries and villages we toured were intimate and picturesque. The wine was also very good. A very unique experience overall and we will return with a group of friends for an extended stay.

We enjoyed a wonderful day with Paulo travelling North on what we thought was a standard wine tour. Paulo spoke proudly of Portugals heritage and history showing us some amazing sights along the way. We stopped for a short visit in Mafra and were amazed by the beauty of his small community and the National Palace was breathtaking. The two winery’s we visited (Manz Wine and Quinta da Murta) were both unique and pleasing with wonderful people, wine tasting and education. We would highly recommend Paulo as a guide!

Thank you very much Claudine & Scott for taking some of your time and writing a review about us. This Wine Region with it´s wines and history, makes it a very different and interesting region (at least we hope). Away form the usual touristy places, this makes a good "getaway" from Lisbon. Glad that you enjoyed the tour and Paulo for your guide, Joao Dickmann

Our tour guide, Paulo, was excellent! He picked us up from our Lisbon apartment and as we were leaving Lisbon, he recommended restaurants to visit as well as attractions to see which were very close to our location. He was very knowledgeable about Portugal as well as this wine region. We visited Mafra and had a very good typical Portuguese lunch at a local restaurant. During the day, we visited two wineries where we tasted their wine and were given a history of the winery as well as a description of their wine production. We were very impressed with the winery choices and we would definitely recommend this tour!

This was a great tour and if you are a wine loving person you should absolutely do!

It was a great afternoon and would highly recommend!

Paulo, our guide was very good. The Quitas we visited were, overall, good. Manzwine deserves a special mention. Rita, our host, was knowledgeable and happy to answer our many questions about the winemaking processes and wines. The wines were very good. Paulo took us to a small cafe for a typical Portuguese meal, including soup, sardines and mackerel. He also went out of his way to organise vegetarian options for one of us.

We had a truly wonderful day. First communication prior to the tour was great, received a few emails confirming time and place for pickup. We were picked up promptly at our hotel, actually Paolo was early, we were still eating breakfast. It was pouring rain, and he literally pulled the van to the door and was right there with the umbrella. We enjoyed both wineries, both the staff that did the tours and the wines as well. Beautiful countryside and the people were genuinely warm and kind. Paolo was a great guide. So energetic, you can tell he's passionate about Portugal, wine and food. Made a couple of stops, one in Mafra to see the lovely church and then to sample the best nata in Portugal. Would highly recommend a day trip with this company!

We had a fantastic day with Joao from TakingUThere, visiting two gorgeous vineyards within the Lisbon area. The private vineyard tours were really informative and interesting - and really fun! - and the wine we was fantastic. We also made a quick stop in Mafra to see the palace and learn a bit about the town. Joao is extremely personable and knowledgeable about Portugal, which made the time spent driving pass very quickly. Overall, it was a perfect day - and a great value!
