A great tour with lots of interesting information. I really enjoyed the small group atmosphere.
Sintra is terrific, and so is this tour! Fernando was a terrific guide with great knowledge and a great sense of humor. The three palaces were very beautiful and this was a great way to see and learn about them. We did lunch on our own, and would recommend that so you can explore Sintra a bit.
Brilliant day visiting three beautiful palaces. The guide was with us for the whole trip. This is definitely a tour worth going when in Lisbon.
This tour was exactly as described and was very nice. We had such a very nice tour guide (Francisco, if I remember correctly) and it was really the perfect size for each person to get to know more historical notes about each room of each location. There were plenty of photo ops and the free time to check out more was quite appropriate for such a long day of site seeing. I was very pleased with this tour and tour company and the value I hoped for was delivered.
A very good tour which takes the hassle out of doing it on your own, our guide Anna was excellent always had an answer to everyone's questions. All three palaces are excellent, but we thought the last one on the tour queluz was the best and deserved a little more time, plenty of time for lunch and a veery good pace to the tour.
Thoroughly enjoyed this tour, our guide was very knowledgeable and thoughtful. Thank you
Three excellent and contrasting palaces with a first commentary from our guide. Need to be fairly active - there is quite a hill at the Pena Palace and 50 steps at the Sintra palace.
This trip was amazing! The castles were beautiful! We had a great tour guide!
Tour guide very knowledgeable and had very pleasant personality. Appreciated hotel pickup. Very pleased to see charming town on Sintra and found most enjoyable restaurants and shops. Saw three major castles in lisbon area so felt satisfied that we were able to see something outside of the city. Highly recommend !!
Francisco was a brilliant guide. lots of interesting information delivered with an excellent sense of humour so the whole day was excellent. We loved the palaces and being in a small group enriched the whole experience.
My husband and I typically don't do tours but we do selectively join individual tours because of the insight you gain with a knowledgable tour guide. This is a must do....there is no way you will get the information and the ease of getting from one site to another on your own.
Beautiful castles ,especially Sintra , and excellent tour guide.
The trip was well guided, very informative...
I woould only like to make two sugestions:
1. The Montserrat Plalais should be included
2. You should start the trip later during the day..maybe from noon on, because the Microclimate in Sintra often causes fog or mist, which reduces the pleasure of the tour...it usually clears up from noon on..
