Ability to see a lot in one day, but doesn't totally match description
Private Tour to Sintra - Roca Cape - Cascais | Aug 2019
This tour was great with regards to being able to see a lot of the country side, including Cabo da Roca. However, we felt like expectations for the tour could have been managed differently, maybe before the tour started through email conversation. We originally booked this tour because the "typically itinerary" listed all of what we wanted to see, including the Iniciatic Well at Quinta da Regaleira, but once the tour started Andre let us know that there's typically is a 3 hour wait for the well and a 2 hour wait for inside Pena Palace and recommended we go to a beach instead. This was fine, but I would have preferred to have all these conversations before hand. It appears that because Sintra has grown in popularity it might be almost impossible to see all of what is on the "typically itinerary" listed in the description. Perhaps in the future there could be 3 options of itineraries and tourist choose 1 of the 3 options ahead of time so everyone's expectations are the same and managed.
We ended up spending the majority of the tour not actually in Sintra, but more so at "Apple beach", Cascais, and Roca Cape. I wish we could have spent a little bit longer at Pena Park. We also felt rushed walking through Pena Park and it seemed like maybe Andre was worried about traffic and wanted to get out before it got very busy. We were happy we took a private tour because the process to see the park in Sintra appears to be time consuming and busy if taking public transport, but for the price of the tour we thought the itinerary would have been closer to the description.Mehr erfahren
