This trip is good and will highly recommended to all visitors. The guide is very knowledgeable and small group is much better.
I think this was one of my top 3 tours in Lisbon. Sintra is beautiful and could be on the cool side so please take a jacket or sweater. Nice castle and grounds. The little town is charming and has good places to eat and shop. Great tour guide too. Then you go to Cascais where you can see the beach. The whole trip is very informative and the scenery is great!
Our guide, Nadia, was really terrific, very friendly and learned everybody's name. We had a great experience on this tour.
Our tour guide, Augusto, is pretty good in both Spanish and English. The trip is quite interesting. He is quite knowledgeable. I will recommend others to take the trip.
I had really wanted to visit both Sintra and Cascais on my recent family vacation to Lisbon with my husband and our two young sons. After a little research, I decided this would be the best way to see both places in one day. It was a great decision. We were a small group of 6 and we traveled in a comfortable, air-conditioned minivan. Our tour guide was a lovely young lady named Catarina. She was very warm and wonderful to my two boys. She was very knowledgeable about the sights and made the day feel as if we were spending it with a friend not a tour guide. We visited Pena Palace and had free time to visit other sights afterwards. We decided to relax and have Sintra specialties at the famous Café a Piriquita, namely queijadas and travesseiros. Then we had a brief stop at Cabo da Roca, which is the westernmost point of continental Europe. The tour ended with a longer stop at Cascais to enjoy the beach, followed by a drive along the Estoril coast. We really enjoyed our whole day and would definitely recommend this tour to anyone visiting Portugal.
Io ed il mio ragazzo abbiamo fatto il tour di una giornata a Sintra, Cabo da Roca e Cascais il 10.07.2015:
- Ho prenotato e pagato il tour online direttamente dal sito Viator.
- Il punto di ritrovo era Praça dos Restauradores, proprio di fronte all'Hard Rock Café.
- Ottima esperienza: pulmini da 8 persone, con aria condizionata.
La nostra guida era Fred, molto simpatico, disponibile e preparato.
- Consiglio vivamente questo tour!
Ps. Il tour era in lingua inglese.
Very interesting trip and the guide, Augustino, was excellent-and tips on what to dojust the right amount of information
We really enjoyed this tour. Nadia was extremely friendly,well informed about all the sights visited and very courteous and entertaining with her stories. Well worth the money and would recommend to others

Highly recommend. Sintra is beautiful and should be seen. Our guide Fred was fantastic, very knowledgeable and funny. The town of Cascais is lovely and Cabo da Roca Europe's westernmost point is spectacular.
Sintra attracts a lot of tourists, but it remains very pleasant and interesting to discover. Being in a small group, with a professional guide, was decidedly a plus. We enjoyed the drive along the Atlantic coast, including the stop at Cabo da Roca, the western-most point of continental Europe.
Very nice and interesting tour led by a very professional and knowledgeable guide.
Our tour guide was so passionate and wonderful. The day was truly great
Really enjoyed this tour with our friendly and knowledgeable tour guide.
Sintra was beautiful and then we went to the most western part of Portugal over the Atlantic.
Cascais was sooo beautiful that I wished I stayed overnight there so that I could spend more time.
This trip was amazing! Our Guide was excellent and the day couldnt have gone better. One tip to any female travellers, it can get windy at some of the stops, so my advice, from personal experience, is to not wear a dress or floaty skirt! lol
This was a great small group tour of 8 people. Gus was a great tour guide. I would highly recommend this trip, none of the bus trips are longer than 45mins drive. The royal's holiday house is spectacular and in great condition. We stopped at a local restaurant recommended by Gus and had some amazing seafood. The seaside town of Cascais is like a mini French Riviera, so beautiful. I could easily take a weeks break here and relax, it does not feel like you are so close to Lisbon. I would recommend this one.
Pedro our guide was amazing. Very knowledgeable, answered all our questions and had a great sense of humor. We had a fabulous day. Highly recommended.
Nadia is a fantastic guide: personable, dynamic and knowledgeable, with very good language skills in both French and English. Our tour was extremely enjoyable and instructive and I would recommend it to anyone wanting to visit the area for the first time.
This was a fantastic tour! My tour guide for the day was Nuno, and he was very friendly and knowledgeable. It was nice having a small group because we were really able to ask lots of questions and have a more personalized experience. Pena Palace, Sintra, Cabo da Roca, and Cascais were all beautiful, and having such a knowledgeable guide helped us all appreciate what we were seeing all the more. I would highly recommend this tour if you will be in Lisbon for 3 or more days. It was the highlight of my stay! Thank you Nuno!
A very fruitful and enriching experience. Well conducted with a lively guide. Will surely recommend to visitors from our country to Lisbon. Keep it up!
This is a great tour for people having a limited time. The Tour guide Catarina speaks English fluently and gave us lots of good info on history, life style, traditions and etc. Highly recommended!
I'm not sure if we just got lucky, but our guide Catarina was awesome! She was very knowledgable and we learned so much about Portugal - history, art, culture... It was great! The van was comfortable and had AC as promised which was need on this very hot day.
Fantastic tour !Catherine our Guide was super .Very well informed and went out of her way to even get an ankle brace for a friend who had hurt her leg.the groups are small just 5-8 people per van so it feels like a private tour.Would highly recommend this tour
This was a good day out with a relaxed, informative guide and enough time to see the places advertised. Sinatra is well worth visiting as a day trip from Lisbon - the Pena Palace is very impressive with stunning views. The trip provides free time in Sintra too, and enough time to tour the National Palace independently, if you do wish.
The other stops are worthwhile and generally this is good value and an enjoyable day out.
