A really good tour and an amazing destination. As a family of 4 2 kids we had the very knowledgable and friendly Vasco as a guide and driver and maker of origami. Vasco was full of information about Lisbon, Sintra, and everything that we wanted to ask about. he also knew the best local cafes.

We travelled on a Thursday in July, but the queues for Pena Palace were already very long by lunchtime even for those with a ticket already. Go early! And don't miss the Wall Walk.

This tour was more of a taxi service. The driver was nice enough but not talkative on the ride out and back, felt like he could have given more background info. Also, dropping us off at a castle and telling us he would be back in two hours didn't feel much like what we expected from a guided tour. We wished he had told us little things about the castle like the tram, and information devices that we saw other people with. We realty were left on our own. This was an expensive tour for two people so we were disappointed. The driver was nice enough but no where near the fabulous guides on our other 5 small Viator tours.
