    My group really enjoyed the places we visited and the guide had a lot of interesting information to tell us. We especially appreciated the amount of free time we got, the friendliness of the guide and his willingness to help us and how structured the tour was overall (for example: we first went to pena palace before it got busy so there barely was a line).

    This was an excellent trip that I would recommend. A lot of companies offer this standard itinerary and I think for the most part it works. Our guide Savio was very knowledgeable and friendly. The highlight is the Pena palace at Sintra, which we visited first thing to avoid the crowds. The guided tour offered by Savio was also very interesting. The only drawback I found was that sometimes it was a bit hard to follow along with the commentary, since inside the palace is quite tight. We were about 20 people which was totally fine in general but except for inside the palace itself. The visit to Cascais was also nice, but could actually be skipped in favor of more time at Sintra since the area has more palaces and trails that could be explored. We could have also made a stop at the cabo de inferno in Cascais, since that seemed to be a highlight but was unfortunately too far from our drop off point in Cascais. However, those were minor issues in an otherwise great trip. I would definitely recommend it.

    I was met promptly on time by our tour guide. He did a wonderful job of ensure we were comfortable in the car. He dropped us off at the entrances and lead us through the palaces. I was a little worried about the language barrier but medhi spoke English very well and was very knowledgeable about the topics we learned. He was eager to teach us about any questions we had! We had hardly any wait at any of the sites! One thing I think would be great is to spend an hour in cascais the town is amazing to drive through!

    Our tour was cancelled so we were looking for something last minute. We booked on a Sunday night at 8pm and they were able accommodate us.

    Originally we booked out pickup for 9am but Bruno asked if we could do 830am, smart man. Pena castle gets really packed so getting there early is in your best interest so you don't waste your day waiting in line.

    Bruno was a fantastic tour guide and we highly recommend him and this company. Fascinating information and he was like.an encyclopedia, you could ask him anything!

    We started our day at Pena Palace, then went around the town of Sintra. Then went to Cascais and ate at a beautiful restaurant by the ocean and sat outside with great views (he made reservations and took care of everything). Then we went to Cabo da Roca and walk around beautiful ocean views. Then we went to Cascais Marina and walked around there and passed through Estoril. Full 8 hour tour getting to our hotel at 430pm.

    We know the tour is pricey, but so worth it! We loved it! Highly recommend.

    What an absolutely amazing experience. The guide was wonderful, I honestly can't say enough about him. Super knowledgable and went out of his way to make the day special and relaxing. He had great suggestions for each spot and was great at checking on all of us. I loved visiting Lisboa but this was the best day of my trip!

    Sintra is a very busy place (an understatement), but our guide Mr. Mehdi made it fun and enjoyable by navigating us effectively through the crowds while sharing his considerable knowledge; especially history. We enjoyed his company. We got to see Pena Palace, walked part the ramparts alone, walked in the city centre, had a very tasty Portugese lunch that Mr. Mehdi helped us select and descended the circular stair at the ornate Quina da Regaleira palace - all in a 1/2 day !!! We highly recommend this tour as local knowledge is essential to get around the one way streets, traffic, parking and congestion of Sintra.

    I had a great time with Nuno. He is very knowledgeable and a great entertainer. Adult or children you will have a lot of fun while discovering Sintra and other beautiful scenery. He will also take great pictures and videos of you during the day. Highly recommended tour!

    Manuel was a great tour guide! He was so knowledgeable and made it enjoyable for our family of 5 plus 3 adults. His van was very comfortable and he made the day easy with drop offs in the right places for the right amount of time. We were able to enjoy plenty on our own while he did the driving. Definitely worth it to experience those areas this way vs. navigating them on our own.

    The palace is such an amazing place. I made the booking of the tickets through Sintra Tours & Tickets and Ticket online for Pena Palace and Pablon managed everything for us. I downloaded all the tickets but he also them directly to my WhatsApp, which was very handy. My family and I truly enjoyed the experience 🤗

    We’d heard that the Portuguese people were very generous and kind and Antonio exceeded our expectations. He was amazing and really cared about showing us how wonderful his town of Sintra and nearby Cascais are. A father of three older children himself - he was like a doting father. Picked up my family of four at our Airbnb in his Citroen which was plenty spacious and drove us to Sintra. Gave us the history on the drive to Sintra, got us on our way at Pena Palace before the crowds rolled in ( get there by 10), drove us to a place only locals go for lunch and then back to Sintra. He was totally flexible with schedule and let us choose where and how we spent our time. Had plenty of information about every place. He ended up giving us extra time so we weren’t rushed at Cano do Roca or Cascais. I would highly recommend him. Our best day so far and a must do trip from Lisbon.
