This was one of the best tours me and my wife have ever taken during our travels around the world. Premiere Tours is by far the best guiding agency we ever hired, and Jorge Bras is the most knowledgeable guide, a true gentleman, always looking out for our wellbeing. Fatima and Sintra are truly two of the most wonderful places in the planet. The spirituality of Fatima and the mysticism of Sintra with its magical fairytale palaces, made the top on our favorite places in the world list. Even though we were in Portugal for only three days on a business trip, during the pandemic, we decided to contact Premiere Tours for ideas on a one day tour, and we are so pleased that we were advised to take this one. We recommend this highly professional guiding agency to everyone visit Portugal.

We took the half day afternoon trip to Segovia 11/16/20. Everything was on time and smooth. We really didn’t need the guide as she gave very little information especially once we were in the town. We walked to the Alcazar and she gave us our tickets and said meet at the bus @6:30. It would’ve been nice to have a guide inside the castle but it was fine. Just FYI if you go in the winter it is much colder and windier in Segovia than Madrid!! Seems expensive just for the bus ride there.

While staying in Santiago de Compostela we decided to see a little more of the surrounding countryside so took a day tour to Ribiera Sacra, with Viajes Tambre. It was a fabulous day with several interesting stops along the way. Fabulous panoramic views, lovely tour of a prominent vineyard in a fantadstic location overlooking the whole valley, lovely unspoilt places & to top it off, a superb guide - Sonia. It was really good value too as it was almost 12 hours duration, so you need to have energy charged, but it's so well worth it! Would definitely go again when in the area.
