Excellent tour! Our guide was quite eloquent in several languages she kept all informed in English, German, French and Portuguese! The tour of the palace was excellent, would have liked a little more time in Sintra, if possible. All-in-all - highly recommend this tour!
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.
I highly recommend this tour, the three towns are beautiful and you get to experience something different.

Great trip and very nice scenery. The tour guide very friendly.
By far, the best tour I did during my trip to Europe. I will strongly recommend it. Cabo da Roca is breathtaking!
Don't miss going to Sintra - absolutely gorgeous area and the castle is quirky and nothing like the usual castles. It is set in beautiful, extensive grounds. The Estoril coast was good too - suggest you take the lunch option - was quite good and quickly served.
It was a wonderful trip but it would have been nice if the bus had stopped at the westernmot part of Europe even if just for 10 minutes. It was a beautiful spot for photos but from a moving bus, it could have been better.
Portugal is so beautiful! Our guide was professional, courteous, and knowledgeable. One suggestion I have is to allow 5 minute stops at the Cabo de Roca and Guincho for photos.
This was a very good tour, and provided us a chance to see all the wonderful places around Lisbon.
The guide Maria Elena was excellent she switched smoothly between four languages and made sure everyone was taken care of. It was a great way to have an overview and see if you wanted to return. I enjoyed Cabo Roca best!
The scenery was beautiful and the tour was good. I thought I booked an English tour, but it turned out that since there were three languages on the the bus, we had to hear the same things in two other languages.
The tour was pretty good. Our tour guide was very nice and VERY informative. It was a very nice afternoon!
The tour was well organised with efficient pickups from city hotels, and the time was well spent except for the delays caused by the guide having to explain everything in three languages, Portuguese, Spanish and English. This made for somewhat tedious periods throughout the castle at Sintra and even with her comments/explanations as we travelled through the countryside. The total group was a big one, large bus almost completely full. Perhaps the tour might have been more enjoyable if the group could have been split.
Nice day out, loved the castle at Sintra. Only spent 5 minute stop at Cascais - not sure what the fuss is about.
This was a pleasant trip outside of Lisbon. The tour guide was very friendly and knowledgable. She unfortunately had to repeat everything in three different languages. I signed up for an English speaking tour.
We only had one afternoon in Portugal. The tour was worth seeing the area. The only dissappointment was the Pena Castle was closed when we arrived. We did stop on the way and went through a different Palace. I'm not sure of the name. I would reccomend to others visiting the area.
An enjoyable tour taking in Sintra Palace and a good helping of Portuguese countryside and coast line.
Great trip and some amazing scenery.Guide spoke about 4 languages. Only down side was they picked us up but did not drop us off back at our hotel.
Altogether, my wife and I enjoyed the trip very much -- the places visited were wonderful, and the guided tour of the Pena palace quite informative. We can report one problem however: Since the different tours leave from the same location at the same time in Lisbon, there was confusion about which bus we should be placed on. It was not until guide began an introduction that we realized we had been put on the wrong bus and made a last minute switch. Also, we have a suggestion for an improvement in the tour -- this particular one: "Estoril Coast and Sintra Day trip from Lisbon", does not actually stop in Sintra at all, rather goes to the Pena Palace near town. Considering that Sintra is such a picturesque place perhaps 10 min. could be alloted to allow the tourists to see it on foot, if briefly.
We had a lovely time with the Viator tours. The staff were very friendly and caring. Pick up and drop off were excellent. I do recommend Viator Tours.
