We are glad we selected this extensive tour of Sintra and neighboring beach areas, including lunch. We booked it in advance from our computer in the U.S. and the contact information was all very clear and happened without any problems, with pick-up and drop-off at our hotel. We enjoyed the free time we had as well as the tour information from the guide. It was a day well-spent and a good value.

Pena palace is a must-do in Lisbon. Tour takes the hassle out the multiple forms of transport neccesaary to get there -and adds some other good sights. Would have liked more time at the palace and less on some of the other stops.

I totally enjoyed this tour and the stops we made besides Sintra and would definitely like to go back at my own pace the next time. The only thing I did not enjoy was the lunch! The venue and food was not up to par so best to book this trip with lunch excluded... Our guide Diana was excellent, very friendly and informative.
