So disappointed - felt ripped off
Sep. 2020
We chose this trip because it covered Pena Palace, Castelo, Monserrate, Historic Centre, Quinta da Regaleira and Cabo da Roca (6 things). We chose to pay an extra €100 for pre-booked tickets to avoid any queues. The day started bad when we were picked up late. Then when we got to Sintra the roads were closed due to fire risk. This meant parking in Sintra for a very strenuous 45 minute walk up the mountain to get to Pena Palace. Is was 11am before we got to the palace. By the time we had done the palace there was no time for the Castle because it was lunch time. After a one hour lunch we then had to walk to the Quinta da Regaleira; it was almost 3pm by the time we got there, and at the end of that there was no time for anything else. We only did 2 things on the list. The company should have known of the fire risk in advance and offered to postpone the trip to another day. They never offered a refund of the pre-paid tickets we never used. And to add insult to injury, it turned out Quinta da Regaleira wasn't covered and we had to buy those tickets. So we paid an extra €100 for Pena Palace which would have cost €14 each. Extremely disappointing. The only thing that stopped us giving a 1* review was the two things we saw were wonderful.

Dear Wickers. We regret your experience with us was not as rewarding we all wished. César is a veteran of 1000 tours and almost as many satisfied guests. It seems to us however, hash to punish us with this rating. Avenidas cannot be blamed for the closed roads in Sintra, due to danger of fire. Given the circumstances, that were relayed in advance, we did our very best to satisfy our itinerary and give you the best possible experience. In relation to the pre-paid tickets there must be some kind of confusion, since Quinta da Regaleira is offered in the package and we always offer a refund in case the three monuments are visited, as expected (and this is what happened, we visited 3 of the monuments and not 2). Again please accept our apologies for a day below your expectations. We work everyday to provide the best possible experience for our guests and this will certainly give us feedback to improve on our tour guiding! Here for you, Manuel.

Wonderful and Thorough Trip
Mar. 2020 • Couples
We had a wonderful trip with Cesear! He was friendly, efficient, and very knowledgeable. He picked us up right on time from the hotel, was fluent in English, and provided us with the perfect amount of information of all the sites. We saw many more sites than we thought would be possible in one day- 3 palaces, the Moorish fortress, the old town of Sintra, even stopped at the most western point of Europe, and drove past Cascais on our way back. In Sintra we were also able to enjoy multiple traditional Portuguese pastries he recommended at the oldest bakery in the region. We would definitely recommend this trip to anyone hoping to really see all the sites of Sintra with a knowledgeable and fun guide.
My husband and I are in our mid20s and the added bonus is that Cesear was more than happy to take as many photos of us as we wanted and even had recommendations of where to take them.

The day at the Fairy Tale
Feb. 2020
After a long research, i chose this trip as my Sintra day tour. Let me clarify one thing, i rate it 4 stars for 3 reasons, i am a nonsmoker even allergic to smoke and the car our guide drove was stinking, second i read on reviews that most of the people got and itinerary to choose from we got none and also, they were recommended good places for food, we were just left on the street and had an awfull toursitic food, and the free wifi, water and such promises were all not met.
Despite, all the lacking care in the details, our guide was on time, he did not rush us and was in fact knew the history well. We visited Sintra, with the fog sitting on it, it was as if we were in a fairy tale. Everybody was saying that it was a must, it is. The castle we visited before Queluz was very nice as well... Our time at the Sintra village was not very interesting, i recommend going somewhere else if possible. Our visit to Adraga Beach and Cabo da Boca was also fun for us as we took lots of pictures and we love the seaside. If i had known, i would have reserved a table at the restaurant at Adraga, but they only take people in if you reserve... Even though Cascais and Estoril were recommended we preferred not to visit them as we spend more time at the seaside. Overall, it was a very pleasant day.

Sintra full day trip - a journey through wonderland
Feb. 2020 • Couples
We had a wonderfully magical day with Cesar. The sites were incredible and Cesar was so knowledgeable. He told great stories about each place we stopped and had fantastic recommendations for shops and restaurants. The combination of the tour stops and our guide Cesar made this day a trip highlight. Thank you!

Perfect way to spend a day in Sintra!
Feb. 2020
This tour exceeded our expectations. Cesar picked my wife and me up from our hotel in a clean, comfortable car. He was friendly and knowledgeable about the tour locations as well as Portuguese life and culture in general. He helped us customize the tour so we could maximize our time at the locations we found most exciting. The information he shared throughout the experience helped tie history to the present, making the sights much more memorable and added a dimension to the tour that you would likely miss without a professional guide. The skip-the-line passes made us feel like VIPs as we could walk right up to the front and avoid waiting to enter. We highly recommend this tour!!

Sintra tour worth its weight in gold!
Feb. 2020
Our private Sintra tour with Jose Brito was spectacular. Jose was right on time and texted me upon arrival at our hotel. He was engaging and super friendly and showed us around Pena Palace and Monserrat. We asked him to take us to a really good restaurant- he led us to a wonderful seaside place that had extraordinary food. We made several other stops on our way back to Lisbon and enjoyed all the information Jose gave us. It was so easy and stress free to let him guide us around! Worth every penny we paid. Thanks, Jose!!!

Amazing Day in a Great Place!
Jan. 2020
Riu picked us up early and that was a clear sign of the amazing day ahead of us. Riu was extremely professional and spent as much time at each location as possible. Let me emphasize right now that this is a private tour and you are not with any other couples or individuals. Riu had a great itinerary set out for us and we received an email the day before allowing us to choose the locations we wanted. We visited the Pena Palace, Sintra City Center, Quinta da Regaleira, Park and Palace of Monserrate, Cabo da Roca, and Boca do Inferno. Note that Riu did not come with us at Regaleira, Monserrate or Cabo da Roca. Those stops were time for our own exploration. Additionally, most of the entrance tickets were included, but be sure to check with the company beforehand in case you want to book any non-included tickets online. One of the best stops was the City Center, where Riu helped us grab a sandwich, drink the local liquor (Ginja), grab a famous pastry and see how tiles were made and pained. Throughout the day, there was no time table, pressure or stress. Riu gave us as much time as we wanted at each location and stopped along the coast for additional pictures. I would recommend this to anyone who wants a full day of exploration. Riu was with us for nearly 10 hours and continued telling us about Lisbon on the return trip. My only complaint is that I was unable to visit the Moorish Castle, although, there was an amazing view of it from the Pena Palace. To summarize, professional tour company, great experience, recommended 100% for all!

Incredible private tour
What can I say, everything about this day trip was incredible!

Our guide (and driver), Cesar, was incredibly thoughtful and friendly. He walked us through each of the palaces and locations at our pace and we really felt that the tour was centered around the clients.

If it weren’t for Cesar, we never would have found the pastries aptly names the pillows of Sintra!

I will say that the skip-the-like tickets is completely a convenience option, especially if you’re a student. The majority of the places we visited were $8 entry per person. While we did go during winter (and noting that fares are most likely lower in winter than in summer), we loved the convenience of having our entry ticketed paid for.

If I were to change one thing, I wish that we had more control over the itinerary beforehand so we could allow more time for some places, less for other, etc. That way, the tour could really be private and feel much more intimate and personalized.

This is 120% recommended for anyone visiting Lisbon!

Totally worth it
We made our tour with Tiago and had a great day! Sintra is amazing, so many beautiful places to visit and Tiago was extremely helpful and nice with us, felt just like family!

This tour is definitely a must if you are visiting Lisbon and the professionalism shown by this company was very high, I fully recommend them.

My only feedback is that they didn’t told me that they could buy the tickets in advance for us, it didn’t hinder us much as I bought them online on the way but this could be an issue if you are unprepared or don’t have cellular data/internet access. So make sure to ask them to buy tickets in advance for the places you really want to go.
