the tour was compact, it includes all the elements we wanted to see, the palace, the beach, and more.. all the places exceeds our expectations, and Cape Rock was especially stunning, with the field of flower bloomed in spring.. highly recommended, you can see all the places just in one short day..

Our guide was good and very knowledgeable about what we were seeing. Wished we had more time in Sintra and Cascais

Sintra and Cascais were beautiful. Our guide Andre from Inside Lisbon was exceptional. He spoke excellent English and knew so much about the palace and the towns. He taught us all about the architecture and the park. My husband, 8 year old son, and I were amazed at the beauty of the palace. This tour is an absolute must and it was fantastic that it was with such a small group of people. It was just the 3 of us and two other couples, one from Singapore and the other from Austria. Everyone in our group was super friendly. Don't miss this tour!

Augusto deftly led our tour of two Australians, four Spaniards and us (two Americans) to Sintra, Cabo da Roca and Cascais. He was entertaining and informative from the first moment of the tour to the last. The scenery was breathtaking; the Sintra castle interior was stunning, and the views from the ramparts were soaring. Cabo da Roca is as beautiful if not more so than any photograph could be. In Cascais, we had time for ice cream and to watch surfers and sailboats. The tour was unhurried, with ample time to wander, shop, eat, and relax on our own. This tour is a carefree way to travel through the countryside outside of Lisbon to enjoy varied and beautiful sights.

This trip was excellent with a very knowledgeable tour guide, John, who we felt put himself out to give us a wonderful day. There was no sense that he must have done this trip many times before. The timing and organisation was very good.

Great tour. The castle is unique but Cacais and Boca da Rocca are equally beautiful. I wish we could have more time in Cacais. If you want to have great photos, take this one. The tourguide is very knowledgable and keen to show us good place to take photos.

We covered so much in one day! Knowledgeable guide, beautiful location and great food. Couldn't ask for more. Definitely value for money.

Very nice place to visit. Tour was well organized and yet we had time to do what ever we liked. We visited many different places and the tour guide Martinu was outstanding. He speaks good english and was helpful providing interesting advices. Estoril is a beautiful and fairly big resort. Sintra is a charming mountain town and has many restaurants and we enjoyed eating outdoor overlooking the Sintra palace. It's worth visiting the Sintra palace as well not just the Pena palace.

Excellent Guide and comfortable mini bus. My persnal feeling is that the time at the most westerly point could be shortened and the time saved used in Cascais. I realise this is purely my own point of view, and overall a very pleasant day out.

Fantastic day tour, our tour guide Maria had trouble with closed motorways and quickly decided to turn the tour around so we started the trip where we should have finished,.
We were a mixed group of 8 but Maria communicted without any trouble in German, English and Brazilian with all of us, her local knowledge and superb driving skills on the narrow mountain roads amazed and intertained us all. The Pena Palace and gardens takes you back in time as it rises through the mist and the visit to Cabo da Roca, eastern most point in Europe, and the former fishing village of Cascais made this an unforgettable tour.

Our tour guide, Gonzolo, was fun and very informative. He took us to a lot of interesting places and provided us with historic facts about Lisbon and surrounding areas that we would never have known had we driven to the sites ourselves.
