Amazing experience
We really enjoyed this half day trip to Sintra. Our guide Teresa was great and very knowledgeable and knew so much about Peña Palace. Sintra was more beautiful than I expected. Definitely worth wild trip.

Antonio Was a True Professional
Oct. 2021
Antonio was our driver and was excellent. He was very easy to communicate with before and during the trip. He was on time and all drop offs / pick ups were easy + had the tickets ahead of time shared via our smartphones. He had a wealth of knowledge and was eager to share and answer questions. He is HIGHLY recommended!

An amazing experience in Sintra
Aug. 2021 • Family
Jose was amazing and very knowledgeable. We had a great time touring Sintra with him. He took us to all the main spots and also took us off the beaten path to local favorites, restaurants and beautiful beaches. Would highly recommend this tour!

Great tour! The best tour guide!
Feb. 2020 • Couples
Cesar is easily the best tour guide we have ever experienced. He was on time with picking us up at our hotel, had a vast amount of knowledge on every place he took us to and was very friendly. He even became our personal photographer for every location we visited.

We would highly recommend this private tour.

Great tour
Dec. 2019
Cesar was our guide on this tour. He was on time to pick us up and when we arrived in Sintra was totally organized to get us into the park, and then the castle with minimal wait. Once inside, rather than just looking at rooms, he was able to tell us the history behind what we were seeing and also able to point out objects and vistas that we might have missed had we been on our own. He remained organized, focused and engaged for the remainder of the sites and visit. We were very pleased with our decision to do this tour.

Excellent tour
Luis and the tour were perfect.

We enjoyed doing the personal tour rather than a group tour because we wanted flexible time at each attraction.

The skip the line tickets were a great upgrade.

Luis provides the perfect balance of verbal information and quiet time for us to just enjoy the views and the featured attractions.

We recommend this tour!!

Sintra Half-Day Trip
Jan. 2020 • Couples
We had an amazing half-day with Teresa our guide, who gave us important historic remarks of places we visited, took pictures of us, and took us to eat pastries where locals go. Avenidas, the tour company was very accommodating when we requested her as a guide based on TripAdvisor reviews. I will definitely will use them in the future.

By far the #1 worst “tour” I’ve ever gone on
Jan. 2020 • Couples
My husband and I had limited time in Lisbon so wanted to treat ourselves to a private tour of Sintra and the surrounding area, thinking it would be nice to be by ourselves and also be able to fit everything in per the itinerary. #1 it says there is bottled water included so we didn’t bring our water bottles under this assumption. Ok I guess there wasn’t but I am 7 months pregnant so hydration is kind of a necessity in my case.

Our guide, Jose started out fine in the beginning—a little soft spoken so hard to hear but gave us some general history as we were en route to the palace de Pena. He gave us an hour and a half timeframe to meet him after touring the palace which was great.

Then we started driving and he asked if we’d want to stop in the historic center of Sintra. We were basing this on the proposed itinerary we’d booked so we said yes, we’d have lunch there. That was all good too. When we met him afterwards he said we would be heading to Lisbon? Ummm, what? There was still the Montserrate & Moorish Castle on the list in addition to the boca de inferno, cabo de roca & caiscais. Now I’m aware that it’s 6 hours tour time but he was saying we only had 4 hours. He did not communicate at all how the day was going to be but in general we would have planned much differently where we were going to go and for how long.

He was insistent it was 4 hours, not 6 yet did not make mention of checking with anyone at his office. So then I contacted them myself. The driver then seemed very angry and started to drive more quickly
like he was pissed off about the situation.

We didn’t get to go to the other castles whatsoever and insisted he take us at least to cabo de roca. He obliged then after leaving there we had no clue where we were going because he didn’t tell us anything. I saw a sign we drove past for Caiscais pointing the other way so it looked like we were heading back to Lisbon. Confused, I sent a message to the tour operator who I guess texted the driver. From there he abruptly pulled over the car and confronted us, raising his voice, angry that we went behind his back and saying we were heading to Caiscais, not to Lisbon.

Needless to say, we felt very unsafe with him, he acted like an Uber driver, not a tour guide, we missed sites we wanted to see and had booked to see,

Dear guest. We regret your experience with us was not as rewarding we all wished. José is a veteran of 100 tours and may satisfied guests. After investigating we have gathered that he had a bad day. In no way was this because of you and we do apologize for getting less than you expected from our tour. Here for you, Manuel

Fun and Interesting Tour
Nov. 2019
We had Theresa as our tour guide and she was fantastic. As someone who has been to Sintra before, she made the second time through much more enjoyable. Explained all the fascinating history behind Sintra which you really need to appreciate it. Was always willing to take pictures of us and was an all around great guide.
