Had a great day. The tour guide was very knowledgable and answered all our questions. Would do it again.
Our tour guide Nadia was fantastic, very charming. Nothing was too much trouble and she freely shared her knowledge with our small group. It was a great day.
Both places worth visiting, Cascais is a wonderful summer resort though a little quiet over winter but still lively enough; Sintra has magical palaces and countryside
Of all our tours....this one is our very favorite! Jlal (John), our guide, made this day trip very pleasant and enjoyable and he was a wealth of knowledge about the area and the people. Really enjoyed the Pena National Palace....such beautiful diverse architecture all in one building. It was incredible standing on the cliffs at Cabo da Roca and feeling the commanding presence of the Atlantic Ocean...soooo beautiful. And although Cascais is a tourist town now....it was lovely with great crafts and street muscians. BUT the shining star of this tour is definitely Sintra! We loved everything about this fairy tale location. The shops, the food, the people.....the view. We will definitely return to enjoy this magical place again. Thanks John for a great time!
We took this tour on saturday last - unfortunately it was a wet day but our guide Andre made every effort to make it a memorable trip and indeed it was. He gave us background to all the places we visited in a very entertaining way. We had a lovely lunch in Sintra and were entertained by the waiter who sang beautifully and was very funny.All together it was a great success made that way by Andre as it could have been a disaster considering the weather -well done
Gang of Four from Dublin
The guide was very knowledgeable and the sites were amazing! Also, really enjoyed the small group - plenty of one-on-one attention and customized tour information. Highly recommend this tour!
Tour guide made the trip, viator app made booking simple. Impressive day tour, first time in Lisbon, a must see.
This small group tour was a great way to spend some time outside of Lisbon . Our tour guide Katerina was great
Excellent tour and great tour guide. She was very knowledgeable.
Sintra and Cascais were fantastic and the tour guide was great. Would highly recommend both the tour and tour guide. Be forewarned however, The road/path to Sintra is as steep as the streets in Lisbon. There is a bus to take you to the castle if you'd like but there is still a steep driveway you'd need to walk up after getting off the bus. My friend and I walked the path along with the guide. It's OK if you take it slow!
Sintra is a lovely city with plenty of quaint restaurants that serve delicious food, wine and pastries at very reasonable prices. The Palace is a fascinating piece of Portugal history. Be prepared to walk up a rather steep hill.
It was great. The guide was friendly and fluent in Spanish and English.
