Delightful Day in Obidos/Nazare with wonderful Paula!
Our family of four adults (Dad, Mom, two young adults) had a wonderful day with Paula Brito from Lisbon Point driving us from Lisbon to Obidos and onto Nazare! She was friendly and knowledgable and so flexible in creating a perfect day for us. We started in the walled medieval town of Obidos where we had plenty of time to explore. Then we went to Nazare, where undersea canyons create rogue waves that attract daring surfers from all over the world. The waves on North Beach are tamer in summer but still bigger than they ones we are used to seeing on the East Coast of USA! Our millennial "kids" visited the Surfer Museum while my husband and I enjoyed lunch/shopping in town. Then, we regrouped to relax on beach and wade in the waters of Nazare's South Beach. We are so happy we did this day excursion from Lisbon with a private driver who let us go at our own pace and see what interested us most. Paula was perfect for us. So personable! A most memorable day!
Awesome trip. Superbly knowledgeable guide, Miguel
Myself, my partner and my mum went on this amazing trip while staying in Portugal, it was a perfect day out. We were picked up by our tour guide Miguel, who was the highlight of the trip for us! He was so entertaining all the way with his stories and very knowledgable about the areas he was taking us to. He was very relaxed and focussed on making our trip a great one, which it really was. He was patient when we wanted to stop to pick up drinks or spent a little longer than we should have at one of the sites. The old medieval town was so quaint and had some lovely shops, and Miguel also took us to the factory where they make the porcelin birds as we wanted to get some as gifts. Nazere was so beautiful and it was it was much quieter than where we were staying (Cais Cais), I would go back there for longer on our next trip. Thanks so much Miguel we will definitely be seeing you again soon
Paula is an energetic and caring guide who kept us entertained with stories and legends as we travelled with her to Obidos, Alcobaca and Nazare. She was flexible and considerate of our needs. We shared laughter and stories with her as she introduced us to the villages, buildings and beaches of the area. We hope to meet again to visit other towns in the area. An excellent driver, Paula was prompt about meeting us, dropping us at our destination and keeping us informed by email. What a wonderful day!
This was an excellent tour. Our tour guide Vater was caring, patient and took our needs into account. He was flexible in his itinerary and we would not hesitate to take another tour with Vater again!! Highly recommend
Got a private tour as no one else booked. I learnt so much. The age of the buildings and the history I was informed about impressed me greatly. Highly recommend this tour.
