Exactly like a friend! MAGNIFICENT
Feb 2020
My girifriend and I booked a full day tour through Sintra and Cascais and we could not have been better treated, since it was - by far - the best tour we've experienced. I honestly don't really enjoy history, culture and that stuff but my gf does, so I went ahead and booked it... And even though I'm not that into tours, I honestly LOVED this one because it was Fred. He was able to make it fun, while very interesting at the same time. There were so many secret spots and local cuisine we wouldn't have known if it weren't for him. We also had the advantage to cut in front of huge queues (instead of a 2-3hour wait) to enter the famous palaces (They're a MUST). Needless to say my gf loved every second of it... Since there is so much beauty to explore in Cascais and Sintra, it was crucial to have booked an enthusiastic, knowledgeable tour guide like Fred. Thank you so much for the experience!

A PRECIOUS EXAMPLE
Oct 2019
fred’n’friends. Initially I wondered if that meant Fred and the friends who assist him in his business or the friends he makes in the course of providing the service which he provides. Definitely the latter.
After Fred accompanied me, first on a day trip around Sintra and then on a day trip to Lisbon, I now think of myself as a friend of Fred.
This guy is SPECIAL and the service he provides totally unique in terms of the passion and the professional and entrepreneurial spirit he expresses for what is most assuredly his vocation. He is informed, meticulous in his approach to being a guide - (Confirmatory text on the evening previous - When he arrived at the pick up point, text to say “I’m here, take your time”- When we had a snack on the go the carpet was rewarded with a few crumbs - “Don’t worry, I vacuum it ever day”)
Fred clearly relishes his uniquely descriptive insights into the background of the many sites we visited and as he weaves a vibrant fabric of history and personal insights this highly personable young man allows you to imagine that your day has been created especially for you but in the knowledge that he is the essence of a truly genuine individual.
To say THANK YOU Frederico seems singularly inadequate, but I do so with a full heart and unbounded appreciation, not only for two thoroughly enjoyable experiences but for restoring my belief in the goodness of the human spirit, for which you Fred are a precious example.

Unprofessional
Sep 2019
I spent quite a bit of time trying to plan my few days in Lisbon and among many options to Sintra, chose this one only to find out it is being cancelled. Fred responded saying he is not available and didn't know how to take him off the system. Very disappointed that now I have to spend more time trying to book again within now shorter time at hand.

I am really sorry for this situation, but I was really just starting to accept bookings via tripadvisor and didn't know exactly how to lock off the unavailable dates. Hope this never happens again, and if you ever come back I would be glad to show you around without any trouble. Thank you

Wow!!! What an awesome tour. We had our fabulous tour guide Fred and we were touring around in a sporty mini convertible. Fred gave us a terrific insight into all aspects of Sintra. If you need a tour / tour guide we highly recommend Fred! Thank you for a great day. Cheers Leanne and Suzy from Sydney

Fred raises the bar
Jul 2019 • Couples
Wow! Simply wow. I feel guilty writing this review because it simply won't capture the incredible experience my wife and I had spending the day with Fred. We signed up for his 6 hour tour (which costs a remarkably affordable 150 euro) on a whim and were dumbstruck at our luck in finding Fred.

What makes him and his tour so great? You are conveniently shepherded around in a private car, roof down along the Portuguese coast. History abounds at every turn as detailed anecdotes accompany the Atlantic breeze. Your wallet is left reasonably full provided the day-long experience.

But most importantly it is your guide, the unparalleled Fred, that makes this experience unique. Fred grew up literally in the heart of the tour, Cascais, and his connected shines through every comment and enriches every comment and tidbit that he shares. He may not be educated as an historian, but he perhaps is better than one because you can hear his passion with every pinpointed detail he provides about each site that you pass/visit.

He really has raised the bar for my expectation for tours, and anyone who goes to Lisbon and wants to see the offerings outside the city center must do so with Fred.

Incredible experience
Jul 2019 • Friends
Where to begin?! I was visiting Lisbon for 1.5 days and wanted to see it all! I had a full day tour with Fred and he shows us the Castles in Sintra (King Ferdinand II's castle!!), and then we drove to Cascais where we were able to see beautiful beaches and had the best Lombo sandwich (filet mignon with a garlic her butter) per his recommendation. From there he shows us around the city of Lisbon and brought us to the highest point where we could see the entire city. Fred did not rush us at any point, brought us pastries and allowed us to control the tour! He is from Cascais and extremely knowledgable about the area so not only was it a beautiful tour, but an awesome history lesson as well! When I go back to Lisbon, I will 100% do an all day tour with him again! What an awesome experience this was! Thank you so much for showing us around, Fred!

If you want a Local's tour of a beautiful city, Fred is your guy. As a local, he knows the ins and outs of the city, Sintra, and Cascais. He's so passionate in what he does and he knows SO much about the history of the area. I would recommend him to every person who visits Lisbon - you'd be remiss in not booking his tour! He'll give you as much time as you need to enjoy the sights, as well as give you tips on what to do out and about in the area. It's like driving around with your friend in their city - a MUST DO!
