A great mix of places to see and a good mix of bus riding and sightseeing. Our guide Francisco was knowledgeable, informative and personable. The places we went were beautiful and interesting.
Feature-packed and enjoyable......covered many sites yet never felt rushed......great value for a half-day trip!
This was an excellent tour. Our tour guide Ricardo was very informative . Packed such a lot in well worth the money as it gave us a little taster of so many places. Worth doing.
I enjoyed this tour very much. Our guide was very pleasant and informative. Cascais was truly beautiful!
Super organisierte Tour, sehr netter und kompetenter Tour-Guide, absolut zu empfehlen. Schön wäre evtl. gewesen, in der Altstadt von Sintra noch etwas mehr Zeit als 20 min. verbringen zu können.
Beautiful places!!!!!!! Cascais is amazing, there is a wonderful view on the way there. Sintra is a cute little town. Very recommended.
Our ship docked at Noon in Lisbon and that gave us enough time to meet our group at 2:00 PM
Our guide was Katharina who was very knowlegeable. We thank her and our driver for a pleasant afternoon and getting a glimpse of Lisbon, Sintra, the Palace and Cascais.
I highly recommend Viator Tours, especially if you have only a short stay.
Excellent tour and value for the price. Guide was extremely well informed and kept the tour moving along at an appropriate pace. Much better tour than the ship could provide not only for the tour itself but at half the price for ships tour of 4 hrs.
Sintra and the Pena Palace were outstanding places to visit. And so was Cascais. This was a beautiful way to spend a half day visiting the coastline and also the beautiful palace of Pena. The guide was well organized and we had ample time for everything. This tour is a must if you visit Lisbon.
Lovely trip. Tour guide was very knowledgeable and spoke perfect English. She also had to translate into two other languages. Not quite enough time in Sintra.
It was good. Katerina, our guide was very helpful and knowledgable.
Great half day out but a lot of time spent on a coach. Would recommend that this trip be made a whole day so that the stops were longer for you to enjoy the experience more fully and perhaps take time out for some lunch.
Sintra and Cascais are definitely worth visiting on your trip to Portugal / Lisbon, and this is a very easy way to do it. The bus pick up was easy to find, right in the middle of town. The bus was comfortable / air conditioned basically a greyhound. There were 20people in the tour, which was more than I expected, and we were by far the youngest people we are all 28, so if you are looking for a young crowd, not for you, but we did our own thing. We basically just used the tour to provide transportation, show us the highlights and get a ride to Cascais -- which is exactly what it provided. We didn't really use the tour guide much -- he gave a tour at the Pena Palace, but we went off on our own. You don't get to see all the castles, which was fine by us, but if you are looking for a more extensive trip to Sintra, this isn't for you. In Cascais, the only stop is Boca de Inferno, which is probably one of the most beautiful things i'd ever seen. So if you want comfy transportation, someone to just take you to the highlights with little effort on your end, this is a perfect way about it.
Well done. Everything was very seamless, easy, and enjoyable. Learned some great history while driving up to Sintra and walking through the palace. While the quick visit to Cascais is nice, it would be great to have had more time in Sintra town center instead magical little town it is
This was a wonderful way to see Sintra.We had a very knowledgable pleasant fun tour guide explain the history and culture. Pena Palace is not to be missed. The only way to see it and relax is with a tour!
The stops were perfect and we never felt rushed. A worthwhile trip!
Covered more than enough for the duration of the tour.
This tour is recommendable.
Hassle free way to see Sintra and Pena Palace, but if you're the type who dislikes being on a tight schedule, I suggest you take train from Lisbon to Sintra on your own. The quick stops in Cabo da Roca and Cascais were beautiful.
The tour was all it said it would be.
Excellent driver. Exceptional tour guide; she handled all 3 languages beautifully ( hard work). It was appreciated.
Enjoyed the tour--Pena Palace is definitely a place to see. Tour guide, Katarina, was informative and had a good sense of humor.
The tour office was very convenient to our hotel (walking distance) and was in a good location for picture taking, eating and shopping.
We decided on this tour because of entry to Pena Palace--however, timing could be improved as this tour was scheduled only in the afternoon and we left at 2PM. Considering the short daylight time in November, tour should have started earlier and should have an option of having it in the AM. More time needed to see and enjoy the other palace, was given only 20 minutes which was only good for shopping.
Driving by Cascais and Estoril was picturesque, but because it was past sunset, we were not able to take good pictures and truly enjoy the scenery.
Other than these issues which should be addressed, will highly recommend this tour- a must-see.
