I was travelling with my sister on vacation and this was our second tour booked through Viator. It is a well laid out tour. The meeting point is fairly easy to get to within Lisbon. The guides from Inside Lisbon arrive fairly close to the set departure time and begin calling out the names of travelers going to the various day tours. They have an 8 passenger van for these day tours that is air-conditioned and fairly comfortable. Sintra is a beautiful little town and the Pena Palace is a sight to see. I really wish we did have a little more time in Sintra just to enjoy some of the views and see a few more places. You are given about 1.5 hours at lunch time to spend as you wish (grab a sit down meal, see more palaces, walk the city). That being said, I was still content with the time we were given. Martha was our guide who speaks wonderful English. My sister and I were both quite sore from a few other activities and were a little slow on the climb uphill but she did a great job accommodating our needs and keeping balance with providing history and enough time to see what was needed. Just a note to future travelers - August is a VERY busy month - so there are fairly big crowds and a large number of tours that come out to Sintra. Cascais is beautiful and we had about an hour there to enjoy in the afternoon. Overall, a great tour!
Fantastic way to spend a day in Lisbon. Sintra was a very beautiful town and we really enjoyed visiting the castle. We also had a beautiful day for visiting and taking photos at Rocket Cape and Cascais. Louis our Inside Lisbon tour guide was very knowledgeable and friendly. Would high recommend this trip to someone looking to tour these places while in Lisbon.
We thoroughly enjoyed our trip to the lovely towns of Sintra and Cascais with Joao as our Tour Guide who was very knowledgeable and informative. Would highly recommend this trip to other visitors :)
This was a very well done trip and our guide did a great job.
and yes I would go back and tell my friends to go to Sintra and Cascais on a one day trip
It was really great! I recommend this trip to Sintra and Cascais to everyone. The guide was great and knew the area very well! I made 2 news friends on this trip. So it was a great day!
Beautiful places!!!!!!! Cascais is amazing, there is a wonderful view on the way there. Sintra is a cute little town. Very recommended.
AMAZING trip. Martino was our guide and we adored him. He was so knowledgeable and helpful. Sintra and Cascais was just one highlight after the next. I feel it gave a great overview of both places, so if you are pressed for time this is the way to see tons in a shorter time period. Saying that, I think the tour should be three days. My friend and I went back to Sintra on our own, very doable from Lisbon and super cheap. But it would have been great having a full day in Sintra, allowing more time to explore the historic district and see Quinta Da Regaleira, which was straight out of a fairytale. Fatima, Nazare and Obidos was also a wonderful day out. I think an hour was too long to spend in Fatima, I understand it is an important religious destination but maximum 45 minutes is needed. The gift shop stop was too long as well, great for people to pick up souvenirs but it just made the stop a lengthy one when I would have preferred more time elsewhere. Nazare was the lunch stop, and restaurants were slow making everyone in the group late for the pick up. Would be good if restaurants could be recommended for taste as well as efficiency as we were annoyed a food stop took so long when there was so much to see. Need far more time in Obidos, could have easily spent the entire afternoon there or at least an hour. Having 40 minutes was a joke really especially if you want to walk along the wall, which I would highly recommend as it is like stepping back in time and such an exhilarating feeling with no rails. Since Obidos is very difficult to get back to on your own I think it would be very nice to have had more leisure time, and also to purchase souvenirs and ginginja, which is absolutely divine!
I loved Sintra Palace, so beautiful. Tho journey from Lisbon was nice and our guide gave us a lot of information during the way. Cascais Bay and Cabo da Roca’s views are amazing. Really recommended
Doing what: Sintra Day Trip from Lisbon
The tour guide (Nadia) was fantastic, she was so passionate and vivacious which added to the whole experience, just loved the day. Sintra was amazing and the walk through Cascais eating an Italian gelati was great. The day was great and would do it again.
This tour was absolutely fabulous! It was a fantastic way to see a bit more of Portugal after spending a few days is Lisbon. The small group and the driver/guide made the trip very enjoyable and we really saw a lot in one day. The palace was incredible. Sintra and Cascais were beautiful. Cabo da Roca was fun. And our "detour" to Azenhas do Mar was the highlight of my trip to Portugal!
Ce tour est une merveille! Accompagnés de Nadia, une guide d'excellente qualité professionnelle et humaine, nous avons pu visiter la merveilleuse ville de Sintra et ses monuments (patrimoine mondial de l'UNESCO), la station balnéaire de Cascais, l'époustoufflant site du Cabo da Roca et parcourir une bonne partie du trajet sur la côte atlantique. Notre guide nous a également initié dans l'art du fado, dont les faubourgs de Lisbonne ont le secret. C'était une expérience inoubliable, rendue ainsi également grâce au savoir faire de la guide et de la présentation si convaincante et détaillée qu'elle a faite de l'histoire et des traditions de son pays. Ce tour est un régal!
Our guide for the day was excellent and luckily so was the weather. We went to Sintra and the Pena palace - with just enough time for lunch anf a look round. Then off to the Cape and finally Cascais. Great trip.
Beautifull tour! The tour guide was very kind. Sintra is a lovely place, we visited Pena Castle, the views were great going up to the hill. We had a very nice lunch also in Sintra and after it we went to the most occidental point of Europe "Cabo da Roca" amazing place, we passed by Cascais and Estoril lovely beach destinations and lanscapes.

It was an awesome trip, we have seen a lot of beautiful places: Sintra (Pena and National Palace), Cabo da Roca with its european westernmost cliff, Cascais, Estoril.
The guide was excellent, he was very kind and he provided a lot of information
Our ship docked at Noon in Lisbon and that gave us enough time to meet our group at 2:00 PM
Our guide was Katharina who was very knowlegeable. We thank her and our driver for a pleasant afternoon and getting a glimpse of Lisbon, Sintra, the Palace and Cascais.
I highly recommend Viator Tours, especially if you have only a short stay.
