Most enjoyable, a nice balance between free time and information. Our guide was well organised and informative and answered all our questions. Pena palace was amazing and the half day tour was perfect for our needs.
I truly enjoyed the tour. We were a very small group, so Ana, the knowledgeable and extremely friendly tour guide was able to provide us with a lot of information on the history, legends or sometimes myths about Sintra and Cascais. Ana was brilliant at codeswitching between English and French. We stopped at the Queijadas de Sintra to buy some must-try delicious pastries. The trip to Cascais was just a bit of a rush as we stopped for a mere 10 minutes to marvel at Boca do Inferno Hell's Mouth and take some photographs, however we understood that we had lost some time in Sintra due to the foggy weather. We were back in Lisboa on time as scheduled and in fact the kind driver, Martin dropped us off near our hotel as it was on his way. Overall, it was a memorable experience to Sintra, Pena Palace and Cascais. Thank you Ana and Martin!
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.
If you have an extra half day and want to get out of the city, Sintra is a decent half day tour. The views are excellent and the architecture colorful, quirky, and impressive. The interior was ok. The two stops on the way back break up the trip but are underwhelming - especially the second at Cacais
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!
