Did the tour on 1 September, and it was excellent! Everything was top-notch! Now I can cross visit to the Pena Palace of my travel bucket list, while the visit at Cabo da Roca was in all aspects breathtaking! Obrigada! :)

Yes, the tour is in English. We did not specifically stop at Bobcats de Inferno, but you have an hour in Cascais to explore.
