This is by far the best tour of the area. With an outstanding guide José who was extremely knowledgeable and interesting to listen to, it made it for a fantastic experience to visit these palaces. Highly recommended and thank to our professional guide José!

had a great time! the guide was very friendly and gave us a lot of info while on the way to the palaces. Delivered us safely to our lunch spot in Sintra, which was delish by the way, and at the end, took a nice walk back down the road, all the while telling us about the different trees/plants brought to Sintra by the king. Really wonderful tour, time to walk on your own after each palace and very friendly guide/driver! Recommend highly!

Our tour guide Isabelle was knowledgeable, and kept the tour fascinating with extra history on the entire trip. I would highly recommend this to anyone.

The palace selection was excellent. All the palaces were different in their own way and very interesting to tour. The group was very friendly and about 1/2 of us signed up for lunch so it was a jolly crowd. Lunch was not good. I had meat but it was chewy and unflavorful. Other people told me the fish was good and that is what I should have ordered. Who knew! After that, we had about 15 minutes to shop in which I did not buy anything but it was fun to look around. I really enjoyed the tour except for the food.

this was operated by yellow bus/boat tours, they did a really good job! Susanna was an excellent tour guide and we felt so bad that it began pouring rain and yet we still continued on. She was very informative, humorous and very knowledgable about Portuguese history. We did not feel rushed, and got to see a lot more than what we had originally intended to see if we did the tours on our own. The food at the selected restaurant was fabulous and well worth it!

This was a great way to see all three palaces. It took it on Sep. 3. We didn't feel rushed. I opted not to do the lunch, so I had plenty of time to walk around Sintra. Our guide, who spoke three languages, was very informative.

The Queluz Palace looks like a small version of Versailles. The Sintra Palace, which dates from medieval times, has quite a blend of architectural styles the 2 large cones are actually the kitchen vents. The Pena Palace has almost a fairy tale look. From one section of the Pena Palace, you can see the ruins of the Moorish castle which overlooks the town. You might want to bring a light jacket. It was quite windy at the Pena Palace.

This was a great day trip. Our guide was excellent as was our driver.It was a wonderful way to see the three palaces,and each was worth visiting because they are quite different from one another. I would advise people that there are a lot of steps on hard surfaces so be prepared for that.

This was a wonderful opportunity and tour to see beautiful Sintra and the palaces. We were amazed at our bus drivers driving on those windy roads so effortlessly. Lunch was wonderful and am so glad we included that in our tour. No complaints at all.

This was an outstanding tour, full of beautiful grounds, palaces and castles. The lunch was very nice with plenty of good food and wine. Our guide gave us 45 minutes after lunch to walk to the nearby Quinta da Regaleira gardens. Every tour to Sintra should include these fantastic and inspiring grounds. The Initiation Well made the quick tour worth it, even if we had no time to tour the residence which also looked interesting from the outside.

An excellent way to spend the day in Portugal. The group was small 15 persons. The tour guide was extremely knowledgeable. We had plenty of time to see all three castles.

Visit to thee 3 castles in Sintra is a must. But keep in mind there are other two castles there, besides the fortified remains of the Mouros castle on top of the hill. Regaleira Palace is a jewel, with a beautiful garden.

Ricardo, our guide took us to a great family type Restaurant, where we had the best fish ever at good prices. Great guy, very knowledgeable, one can tell he loves his country.

We came back to see Regaleira with same company, Inside Lisbon. They did a great job at fair prices. Thanks Jose! Funny guy: Com carne de vaca não se morre de fome. LOL

The tour trip to Sintra was excellent. Our guide, Anna, spoke very good English and easy to understand. I was amazed how well she could go back and forth between English and French, for the other visitors on our tour. The Pena Palace, the last one we visited was just spectacular. I felt the palaces just kept getting better. Our lunch was delicious. The place we ate had a wonderful atmosphere and the waiter was friendly and fun. I would highly recommend this tour!

It was a wonderful tour not to long and not too short. Only 6 people on the tour. The guide was was informative and interesting. The sights were gorgeous. Sintra is beautiful and a must-see. The motor coach to the Sintra and around Sintra was new, clean and has great AC.

The guide, Jose, was one of the finest we have had in 15 years of traveling in Europe and the Far East. He was extremely knowledgeable and was a real student of history, making it come alive with lots of stories. The only drawback of the tour were two 2-year olds who were totally out of control and disrupted the tour a number of times, screaming and throwing tantrums in the middle of the palaces. Allowing two children this age on a tour of this type lasting all day is not acceptable, and the tour company should be criticized for allowing it,

Me and my friend have really enjoyed the trip to three royal palaces in the outskirts of Lisbon. We traveled in a mini bus all about 7 people. I could not imagine to be able to climb to Palace de Pena on my own, bus ride was great! Sintra palace was amazing, and Queluz has some repairs going on the facade, but impressive on the inside and barely any visitors! Tour started at 10 am and finished by 6 pm. We had option w/o lunch, buffet at Sintra was cheaper, but overall Sintra is popular, so you have so many options to get your food! I'd recommend this tour to everyone, just be prepared to lots of walking through splendid rooms and lots of visual impressions!
