EXACTLY what we were looking for. and very good value.
Comfortable, safe, well guided travel. Our driver/guide was Joao John. fabulous information and interaction.
A superb tour with a superb tour driver, Pedro who had that profesional gracious persona who knew his history and relevant subjects such as the flora of the área etc.
Learnt so much history on this tour. Had enough time to ourselves as well. The castle and whole Sintra area was well worth the time and momey. The castle is one of the best I have been to.
Good guide. Good scenery. Even good weather though it was not predicted.
We spent three days in Lisbon and chose to spend one of our days doing this tour. It was not a mistake. Katarina was knowledgable, spoke English beautifully, and was very organized but relaxed in planning our day. The group was small as promised, and we were met promptly at the designated spot. Katarina did a fabulous job of sharing her love of this gorgeous place. We highly recommend this tour.
Had a wonderful time! The guide was very knowledgeable and went out of his way to answer our questions and make it a fun trip. The Pena Palace was definitely worth the drive and I especially loved seeing the elaborate gardens. We had a fantastic lunch stop at a great little local restaurant and it was really fun to meet the others on the tour from around the world. Highly recommend this tour!
Best tour of our trip by far...tour guide was friendly and cordial and more importantly was a very knowledgeable guide providing details of each area at every stop...small group 7 people was ideal for a trip like this...while it's my understanding that late April is not the busy season here...all locations we visited attracted large crowds...visiting Sintra first was well planned...I highly recommend this trip!
This was a great tour!! We really enjoyed the sites and the area. Our tour guide, Joao, was very personable and knowledgable about the area and the sites. I highly recommend this tour if you want a nice overview of Sintra and Cascais, and a great day out!
We didn't know anything about Sintra and Pena Palace until we saw this tour, and this was the highlight of our trip to Portugal even better than Lisbon. It's worth visiting, and harder to get to without being part of an organized group. We like the small group feel, and we went right when Pena Palace opened to avoid the massive crowds that come late morning.
Our tour guide George was fantastic. From start to finish we had an awesome time. His knowledge of the areas we visited and sense of humor made for an unforgettable experience. I highly recommend that everyone book this tour as you will not be disappointed!
Our guide, Catarina, was capable, engaging and knowledgeable, and we enjoyed our day with her in Sintra, Cabo da Roca, and Cascais. The tour delivered on everything that was promised.
Tiago was very friendly, informative, nice and knowledgeable.
He treated us with sweats and ginginya.
Fantastic tour and fun day out! Amazing location not to be missed. Pedro our guide knew heaps about the history and kept us well fueled on coffee and pastries throughout the day too!
Loved this trip. Could have spent more time in Sintra to see the other palaces. A great day though and our guide was great.
On this tour, we were able to SEE Queluz Palace, Sintra Palace, and the Moorish Castle and to VISIT Pena Palace. Pena is surely the highlight of any trip to Sintra--a fairy-tale fantasy, a wacky combination of architectural styles mingled with symbols of Portugal's Order of Christ. Our excellent guide, Maria, provided a wealth of fascinating detail. The tour also featured stops at Cabo da Roca--the westernmost point of the European continent and the seaside village of Cascais. Great fun!
A must see.
Sintra, Cascais and Roca Caves -- all wonderful locations.
And our excellent guide I forgot her name, but she mentioned that she was form Germany but living in LIsbon for more than 10 years made such excellent explanations that this trip is just not to be missed.
This tour was absolutely amazing. We enjoyed the winding road drive and then a nice hike to the castle but the once there it was like we landed in to a fairy tale. Absolutely gorgeous and kept well inside and outside. Stunning views. The weather cooperated which made our experience even better. We had the best guide. He had a lot of insight into the places we saw and made our tour so much more pleasurable. Highly recommended.
Well planned, beautiful tour through Sintra and Cascais. Loved the stops along the shoreline.
Guide was friendly, well informed, spoke beautiful English. Definitely recommend as a great day trip from Lisbon.
Highly recommend this excellent tour. Our guide was fantastic - really knew the history and philosophy behind all the glorious buildings at Sintra. We really enjoyed learning the stories behind the sights! The small group size was perfect, allowed for one to one interaction. The tour does last an entire day and covers a number of lovely places, with enough free time to wander and explore between the guided bits.
Absolutely amazing! I always book with Viator for the high quality tours. Our guide was amazing. The sights were amazing! You have enough time to see everything and eat too. Highly recommended!!!!!
We has a lovely time on our trip to Sintra and Cascais. Luis is one of the best guides I have met - ready to answer any questions, solve any issues, come up with some new information about the places we were visiting and always up to make jokes and bring a smile on your face. The day was sunny and warm and we really enjoyed the whole journey.
