My tour was on 10/06/2014 and I was the only people who shown up on that day (here i want to point out for those who would like to book the tour, if you were delayed or for some personal reasons can not make it, pls!! let Alex know in advance!). Alex was very nice and knowledge of the historical background. We have walked from the Rossio square to Carmo Convent, the Santa Justa lift, the re-built town and then the Praça do Comércio from that we went to the old town where the Arabic people and moorish used to live. The whole trip took about 2.5 hours. I really enjoyed my time with Alex!

This trip was very enjoyable - the guide was friendly, helpful and, like most of the Portuguese people I met during my stay in Lisbon, spoke excellent English (and French)! Sintra is well worth a visit. To be honest, a full day's visit would be your best bet, as I only managed to see one of its spectacular palaces, but as long as you're aware that you won't get time for a huge amount of exploration, you won't be disappointed. The brief stop at Cabo da Roca was exhilarating, and the drive along the Estoril coast was very relaxing - we only got ten minutes' stop at Cascais, but again, not much more could be expected on such a short trip. All in all, this tour was great value, but if you're staying in the area longer, try to spend a full day in Sintra and the surrounding area.

Nearly didn't go on this tour as the bus was an hour late. But so glad we did, wonderful afternoon in a magnificent area of Portugal. The guide was especially informative and helpful.

I CAN UNDERSTAND WHY THIS TOUR IS ONE OF THE MOST POPULAR. A VERY NICE LITTLE PLACE IN THE CENTER OF THE OLD TOWN.THE NATIONAL PALACE IN SINTRA WAS WELL WORTH VISITING.IT'S TOO BAD WE WERE NOT ABLE TO VISIT THE PALACIO DE PENA WITH ITS VARIED STYLES. CABO DA ROCA WAS INTERESTING TO SEE AS THE MOST WESTERN POINT. IT CAN GET QUITE STORMY AS THE BLOWN OVER LIGHTTOWER INDICATES.

The tour was great as well as the tour guide. I would have liked to have spent a little less time in Sintra and more time in Cascais.

a fun trip to see some beautiful towns outside of Lisbon. Unfortunately our group was mainly from France, so the tour guide seemed to focus on them and communicate almost solely in French. This didn't detract from enjoying Sintra and the other sights along the tour though.

Excellent trip for that money. The most memorable was the view of Cape Roca.
A bit confusing was to find the starting point in Comercio Square, because there are two tourism offices in the square.

Great overview of Sintra. It is perfect for someone who wants to get guided for orientation and have time to themselves. I suggest going to the tourism office around the corner of the bus stop and get a suggestion of what to do on your 2 hour free time. I loved it so much, the guide was wonderful.

40 minute drive on comfortable small bus to get to Sintra (charming shops and National Palace to see). Susanna, our guide, spoke half in English, half in Portuguese for the 7 on our tour. IF you want to see Palace Pena, you cannot do on this tour. Cascais is not quaint village, but nice marina.

If you're considering one of the Sintra trips and are short on time, this is perfect. You will enjoy spending a few hours in this little town, plus the drive to see the coast, including Estoril.

Great value, but I would've liked some more time to walk around and explore Sintra.
