Inside Lisbon is the best tour company worked with on our trips. They are very professional, prompt, knowledgeable and thorough. We attended these tours with Marta to Sintra and Cascais and she was terrific!
Went to Fatima, Nazare and Obidos with Augusto who also was great! Both of these guides were very knowledgeable and made our tours wonderful!
Marta our guide was very knowledgable about lisbon and portugal culture and history. She wasver y entertaining on our drive to and from Sintra and Cascais. Once at our destination she gave us a great tour of each location along with plenty of free time to explore. It was a great tour for the price.
The tour guide was very good friendly and drove us to some extra places. It helped that the weather at Sintra was splendid. Maybe a little bit more time at Obidos could be allowed.
Long day trip to see one of the 3 palaces (Pena palace) in the region around SIntra with a possibility to visit the National Palace during the short free time. Enroute back to Lisbon in the afternoon, it was a bus ride to the Cabo da Roca, the most western end of continental europe and then along the estoril coast to the town of Cascais. The stopover in Cascais however was too short to explore the town.
Doing what: Sintra Day Trip from Lisbon
Very much recommend this tour. You get to see so much in just one day. All three palaces are amazing and interesting. You get about an hour and a half free time in Sintra to have lunch and do some shopping. When we went to the first palace it was raining and really windy, but worth the trip to the top. Our tour guide was patient and very friendly. They also picked us up and dropped us off at our hotel. Do this tour if you can.
Excellent small group tour for eight people. Our guide Nadia was just great - very personable and knowledgeable as to the area and the palace, giving good commentary on the drive to and from Sintra. Moderate walking involved but Nadia took it at a nice pace so everyone could keep up. Several in the group were in their late 70's to mid-80's but were able to handle the pace without problem. A very enjoyable tour of the area. Nadia was very helpful in her suggestions as to places for people to go to lunch at.
Both excellent tours, the lisbon walking tour went above and beyond food and wine tasting, involved some extra visits to look at wall frescos and small palaces, Sintra is a must see and the timing of the visit was perfect to avoid the peak of the crowds
My wife and I and two friends went on this tour on Sunday 27th October. It was a nice sunny day and we were joined by another four people on the mini bus. Our guide and driver for the day was Nadia. Nadia was a very knowledgable, likable and a pleasant yound lady. She gave a running commentary when required and was quite prepared to give advice on food and drink. The places that we visited were well worth visiting especially the Pena palace in Sintra. It would also have been nice to have walked along the walls of the Moorish castle that we could see from this palace. We were advised to try the cakes at a cafe called Piroquote 2 and to sample the Grinja on the same small street. Both a very pleasant experience. Nadia played some original and modern Fado music for us on our drive to the westermost point in Europe; Cabo Da Roca and explained all about this traditional music. The tour then headed on to the seaside town of Cascais where we had some free time to dip our feet in the sea and to sample the delicious icecream. This tour was the highlight of our four day stay in Lisbon made all the better by having such a lovely tour guide.
This was a wonderful tour and I would recommend it to travelers to Portugal. The Sintra Palace was an amazing place to visit - very beautiful and historic. Also the visit to the coast and the most western point in Europe was interesting. The drive through and stop in Cascais was beautiful as well.
Extremely knowledgeable guide and very friendly.
Great trip. However Sintra's historical centre is very expensive; a sandwich will cost you 10 euros, a pop 4 euros.
The trip itself was great; I would recommend it.
After our great experience on the Knight's Templar tour. This was something of a let down. Don't get me wrong, Sintra is a must-see if you have time and this is as good a way to do it as any. Perhaps the half day trip that cuts out Cascais would be better. On a full-day tour, I think more time is needed in Sintra even though it is inundated with tourists.
Tram was hard to see sites and take pictures from within. Sintra trip was great - it didn't include the Pena Palance entrance but I purchased it separately for a reasonable fee when I got there.
What a great day! There was a lot to see and learn. Francisco is smart, personable and funny. The palaces are beautiful. The lunch recommendation (in Sintra) was quite good.
Tour was great! Our guide/driver Nadia was wonderful. She told insightful stories and history of the places we visited. We loved both Sintra and Cascais. Sintra has a great little town where you stop for lunch as well as Pene Palace which was a must see! Cascais is a wonderful little beach town. Great expierence! Wonderful memories!
The tour was given in 4 languages, so the tour was very slow. You spend a lot of time standing around. When reading this complaint from other reviewers, I thought that they were exaggerating, but I understood their complaint well enough when I was in Sintra. Unlike the other trips on I went on (single language), it was really hard to meet anyone, due to the language barrier. I strongly recommend against this tour if you are traveling alone.
