The tour was excellent. Sara was very knowledgeable not just about Sintra, but about many historical facts and places within the Lisbon area and friendly and made the trip well worth it. We would highly recommend the tour for those who only want to spend a half day trip outside of Lisbon.
6 of us took the private tour to Sintra from Lisbon. It was the perfect way to begin 10 days in Portugal - mainly due to our wonderful guide, Santiago. He took us to the Palace of Pena where he accompanied us inside(unlike some other tours when the guide drops you off and picks you up later). Santiago shared the history and folklore of the beautiful palace on the hill. His English was perfect and his knowledge covered everything from culture to history to American current affairs, and anything else we could throw at him.
A nice leisurely private tour of the area while we waited for our cruise ship to board. The guide was fantastic and they even dropped us off at the cruise terminal at the end of the tour.
We highly recommend this tour. Our tour guide, Joanna, was the greatest!! She had a wealth of knowledge regarding these sites as well as the history of Portugal in general -- not just Lisbon. We now have a great deal of appreciation for Lisbon and Portugal bc of all that we learned from her. From the history of the exploration to the architecture and even the best foods of Lison, we gave us so much more than just a tour!! We do believe that we much enjoyed this tour and the information alone paid more than for the cost of this tour. We urge you take this tour. And if possible, see if you can ask for Joanna. She is the BEST!!
