We really loved this tour and our knowlegable tour guide. We enjoyed seeing the beautiful Quelez palace, but the Pena Palace was the one that really captured out imagination. A member of our party of four has Parkinson's disease, and it was so nice that we could take an elevator to the top of the palace. The palace and its history were fascinating, and, as an artist, I particularly enjoyed seeing how different each room and its ceiling was.
This was a wonderful day trip from Lisbon, although I was initially taken aback to realize that Queluz Palace is just outside the center of Lisbon and could be toured individually with an audio guide without the bus tour. This fabulous Versailles-like palace is definitely worth seeing and the tour guide was informative and considerate of all on the bus. The highlight was Pena Palace and Pena Park. The Palace is an amazing architectural masterpiece on the top of a mountain. The Park is a magnificent informal design that contrasts with the formal gardens of Queluz. This was a wonderful day trip!

Great day and wonderful setting . . . great tour!!!
The tour was great, lunch was good and the guide was excellent. She spoke 3 languages at the same time fluently. I would recommend anybody to join the tour. The only thing that was not included is Pena Park. We visited Queluz Palace and Pena Palace only.
Yes the castles were very enjoyable.....Pena Palace and Sintra were fantastic! Must sees if you are in Portugal....Ricardo was a good guide.....knowledgeable and friendly.....lunch was delicious!
Belle visite manque le palais de sintra mais le palais de que élus et pénale valent largement le détour.
Un guide très sympathique connaissant bien le sujet

The tour was well organized the guide moved at a good pace with lots of information.
I enjoyed the spot we had lunch and the time to see the area and walk around.
Everything went smoothly and would suggest doing this as a tour.
Ricardo was terrific. Very knowledgable - Shared lots of interesting information about the Palaces. Good rapport with the group. Andre, the driver, spoke excellent English and was a master of the road.
An excellent trip with Anna our guide who was very knowledgeable, patient and gave us information every step of the way. This was a fabulous tour even though it rained quite hard during the day. We were taken in a very comfortable coach and there was plenty of time to explore by ourselves. We also booked the lunch which was three delicious courses plus espresso coffee at the end in a lovely restaurant. We really couldn't have asked for more.
Very nice tour the guide was very well prepared on the different sites very skilled driver in the mini-bus! To improve the efficacy of the tour, it should be better clarified in the web site that, after the on line booking, the printed receipt should be shown at the Yellow Bus kiosk at the Commerce Square, in order to get the tour ticket. This is not very clear from the on line instructions.
We had a very good time on the tour, the castles were amazing. I would definitely recommend visiting in the off season when its not as crowded like we did. We were there in February and the weather was a bit brisk but we also didn't have to wait on line any place we went. This tour could have been very different your typical crammed bus and quickly moving from place to place, but that did not happen here. In total including my wife and myself the group was 6.

Tina was a wonderful, well organized guide and the driver was very good also. I think it would have been easier to have me meet them at the square, Yellow bus needs to be more descriptive on the kioski location, because you have to exchange your voucher from Viator for a ticket at Commecio Square, then go on tour. Tina was very accommodating to drop me off close at end of tour- 15 minute walk back to my hotel.
The tour is well paced and you see and hear alot of history. The lunch was delicious.
Great tour! I loved my tour guide. It was a nice trip to three palaces, all so different and beautiful.
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!
Very good tour with an excellent tour guide. Would highly recommend it.
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.
