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!

Great trip and the guide was fantastic.
It was very crowded this day but the guide arranged the trip so we came before the big crowds. We got a lot of information about everything we saw.
Pena Palace is an incredible fairytale castle. Sintra is a special town with its narrow steep streets, and many palace.
Cabo da Roca is great.
There is lots to see through the window on the trip too.

Lena the guide was great. We were on time and she explained things well. She has a lot of love and pride in her country and it shows. This trip was well worth the money.

Super organisierte Tour, sehr netter und kompetenter Tour-Guide, absolut zu empfehlen. Schön wäre evtl. gewesen, in der Altstadt von Sintra noch etwas mehr Zeit als 20 min. verbringen zu können.
