Guide

Trip Info

Heading south from Lisbon you will reach Azeitão, a picturesque region famous for its cheese and wines. From here on you will have the opportunity to visit several of the region’s wine cellars. One of the renowned cellars is José Maria da Fonseca, where you will get to know all its history, and at the end sample some of the wines that they produce.

Quinta de Alcube is another cellar owned by a family for over a century. It’s a traditional production cellar, producing only 250 000 bottles a year and that is only sold directly to customers, being difficult to find in shops.

To end this “adventure” we will take you to another family owned cellar, Lima Fortuna, to get to know what they produce and even taste the famous regional cheeses, sweets and a liqueur that is made from a 450 year old recipe.

Besides all this, we will show you the Arrábida National mountain range and its natural reserve where you can experience all the beautiful natural views, its history, gastronomy and beaches (in summer). The tour is made for a full day but the duration can be made shorter to adjust to your schedule, it’s up to you.

You can also tell the guide what your main interest points are and we’ll take you there. Remember that we are able to custom build all our tours. So if you like the tour, but want to change something, don’t hesitate to tell us. We can work together and make it the tour of your liking.

    As seen on TripAdvisor: “Wine journalists visit of Setubal”
    The Tourist authority of Setubal invited twelve international wine journalist, members of FIJEV, to cover the Second Iberian Wine Festival. The tour was conducted by Joao Dickmann of Takinguthere. The special care and attention was evident from the moment that I was picked up by Joao at the airport , during the trip and to the departure.As southern Portugal is concerned Joao is a walking encyclopedia.He posses an incredible talent to explain in a way that would be understood by the listener.Being a tour guide myself I greatly appreciated that.In addition he has a perfect control of the English language ( among others).

    Due to Joao I left Setubal with a good understanding of its Geography, climate and history.

    The combination of caring, good planning, great knowledge. patience and ability to communicate renders Takinguthere a perfect company for a tour in that region.

Hospitable, patient, friendly and always smiling Jao is incredible organizer and guide. Strongly recommended!

    As seen on TripAdvisor: “Excellent and knowledgeable tour guide”
    Joao Dickmann is that perfect combination of knowledgeable tour guide and beautiful human being who cares about the people he shows around Portugal. It was a delight getting to know the Setubal region and Joao. Nothing was too difficult or inconvenient for him. I recommend Joao (John) highly for his professionalism, courtesy and wide knowledge of Portugal. Thank you, Joao.

    As seen on TripAdvisor: “Wine and nature” On our visit to Lisbon we wanted to do something different, so we choose to go south to the Setubal region. We choose this tour because of the wine tasting through various wineries. Besides this they took us through the Arrabida mountain with amazing views. For the end Joao took us to a liqueur maker near Palmela that was very very pleasant. There we tasted the regional cheese, bread and jam. A real experience. To do something different, go with takinguthere.

    As seen on TripAdvisor: “Great Wine-tour” Our hotel recommended this tour. As we are wine lovers, we chose the wine tour in the south of Lisbon area. The tour was very nice. Being a small group it felt more personal. Joao brought us around Setubal and Azeitao, where we visited 4 very different and amazing wine cellars. The surprise was, that the tour was not just about wine, also about the nature of the Arrabida Mountains and all its history. Joao ( the guide) was really knowledgeable. We highly recommend this tour. Really good!
