Located west of Lisbon on the Estoril coast, the once-sleepy fishing village of Cascais has become the summer playground of city dwellers, adored for its glorious string of sandy bays and the spanking new marina.  Although the beaches pose ...

Definitely the best way and very good value the first day was with the guide juan very knowledgeable and helpful.The main thing for me was only small group so maximum 8 people in the minibus so no hanging about etc on other bigger coach tours or missing people.Pena palace is a gem,after juan specially told me instead of in the lunch hour as i had brought my own food was to go see quinta da Regaleira although not on the itinerary definitely worth going to.Then in the afternoon we went to cabo da roca spectacular sea views.Then onto cascais more free time definitely try the ice creamsantiniand too soon on our way back to lisbon.
As for the next day met luis our guide again very knowledgeable and helpful also liked answering questions on the journey to these places so dont be shy asking.This time we first went to fatima a place of pilgrimage.Then onto batalha monastery definitely worth paying the little extra to see all the extras.Then onto nazare amazing sea views and free time9amazing fresh seafood.Then in the later afternoon onto obidos a quaint walled town reminded me alot of avila.A few hidden surprises a castle thats actually a hotel and an old church thats know a bookshop.Definitely visit the chapel there.Again time too quickly on our way back to lisbon.Even though at certain times the heavens literally opened up in no way did this spoil the trip.A little tip check the weather for the day and if even the slightest possiblity of rain take precautions.I am sure you will have a great time as we all did and once again thanks to juan and luis.As for the company Inside Lisbon would definitely use them again when i am sure to return

Pedro was an excellent guide! He was very safety conscious and made sure he accounted for all in the van before we departed from each stop. The weather was not great which somewhat affected our experience but this cannot obviously be controlled. Cascais was great but Sintra was a bit disappointing as the town itself was very touristy and coming from Western Canada, the town of Sintra reminded me of Banff, Alberta with the higher than normal prices and somewhat cheap souvenirs but our guide was super!

This tour is a must! Both Sintra and Cascais were unique, and worth a visit. The tour guide was great sadly, I cannot remember her name!.

This was one of the best tours I have ever taken. One day Sintra and Cascais with Louis and next day Lisbon walking tour with Pedro. This was really amazing, I highly recommend it; greatly organized and awesome and very, very informative, professional and friendly guides. I love Portugal and have been there before but these two tours have taught me so much about the country and made my trip so much more enjoyable, you will not be disappointed

Great tour guide, very knowledgeable and accomodating. And a superb tour of Sintra and Cascais, especially the tour of Penn Palace... unlike no other palace weve seen before. A fine day outing!

We enjoyed a lot the tour to Sintra, capo da Roca and Cascais. Nadia Jorge, our guide, was very personable and we learned a lot from her about all teh beautiful places we visited and in general about Portugal.

Very pleased we booked this tour. Sintra is a must see on any trip to Lisbon, a very special place. Our guide was very knowledgeable and very helpful with any requests we had. Cascais was also great to see and experience. We were also very lucky as there were only 4 of us on this tour so it was virtually like a private tour which made it even more special. Would highly recommend.

Both places worth visiting, Cascais is a wonderful summer resort though a little quiet over winter but still lively enough; Sintra has magical palaces and countryside

Of all our tours....this one is our very favorite! Jlal (John), our guide, made this day trip very pleasant and enjoyable and he was a wealth of knowledge about the area and the people. Really enjoyed the Pena National Palace....such beautiful diverse architecture all in one building. It was incredible standing on the cliffs at Cabo da Roca and feeling the commanding presence of the Atlantic Ocean...soooo beautiful. And although Cascais is a tourist town now....it was lovely with great crafts and street muscians. BUT the shining star of this tour is definitely Sintra! We loved everything about this fairy tale location. The shops, the food, the people.....the view. We will definitely return to enjoy this magical place again. Thanks John for a great time!

Sintra and Cascais were fantastic and the tour guide was great. Would highly recommend both the tour and tour guide. Be forewarned however, The road/path to Sintra is as steep as the streets in Lisbon. There is a bus to take you to the castle if you'd like but there is still a steep driveway you'd need to walk up after getting off the bus. My friend and I walked the path along with the guide. It's OK if you take it slow!
