Prior to the trip staff member Didi Knowlton was... More

We had first class MTB day at Sintra together with my wife and our great guide Goncalo. Uphills were hard and downhills speedy and challenging single tracks. Goncalo is very expecienced MTB biker and nice and social guy, who has knowledge of history and nature of the Sintra area. Without his guidance we had never found such nice trails. We... More

The mountainbike daytour with our tour guide Goncalo was an amazing experience. You can expect a lot of heavy uphill cycling, rewarded with awesome downhill crossing trough small and steep tracks. The tour was really diverse: from the beatifull old town of Sintra, trough the woods, till the high cliffs and beaches at the coast. It was totally worth the... More

Together with 3 friends and our guide Gonçalo we did a 40 km trip around Sintra. We had a really great time; Gonçalo was a great guide and we had a very nice lunch half way during the trip. I would see we're moderate bikers and this was a good challenge for the 4 of us.

What a wonderful experience! The Cycling Rentals Team was incredibly helpful and accommodating throughout!
