Our driver João promptly met us at our ship and took us on a wonderful drive to the Disneyseque Pena castle/palace of Sintra. After touring the palace on our own (following Rick Steve’s guide) João then brought us to a wonderful Port Wine shop in the town of Sintra where we had a fabulous tasting experience. Then, on our way back to our ship, we stopped alongside to coast for a great seafood lunch in Restaurante o Faroleino, just near Cascais. With a scenic coastal road drive, we returned to our ship well in time for our sailing. BTW, we were having such a great time with João that we extended our half day tour by a few hours in order to do all of the extras — and it was a great decision!

Joao was amazing! Very knowledgeable and enthusiastic! He tailored our trip to fit in everything that we wanted to do and see. I can't believe we did so much in just a short amount of time. We would never be able to do all of that without his guidance. Perfect day

Beautiful scenery but know the details.

The views of Sintra are beautiful and village tourist destination but charming. Our driver was accommodating BUT we felt we were taken advantage of as sucker tourists when driver “directed us” to a private port tour taste (35 euros each person) and then later recommended a really nice cork shop (we already had discovered it) and a very upscale restaurant. At the port taste I got suspicious of his intentions - friends not so much except in their retrospect they realized he swayed us to more expensive but not unaffordable options. But 35 euros a person and we didn’t expect this. Be up front that the private has cost! And truly it is a show and tell no yours included. Quick photo stops. Road winds to Sintra so if you get car sick like me, be prepared. Tipped driver well despite the Shanghai.

Great experience on this tour w/ Rui from Gold Compass (the local tour company connected by Viator). 6 hours for Sintra plus other stops = and some very nice surprises. This is the way to tour the best of Lisbon and surrounding areas. Very highly recommended!

We loved our private tour with Daniel. He was conversational and knowledgeable and took us to Pena Palace, the town of Sintra ( where we sampled port wines) and the coast of Caiscais. Each spot was unique and beautiful. We highly recommend this tour as it gave us a bigger picture of all Lisbon has to offer.

This is a great trip, especially if you are interested in the history of Portugal. It was a lot however to see and do in 4 hours and needed to extend to 6 since we wanted to take in Cascais while we were in the area. Since it was raining when we arrived at Sintra, the warm sun in the beautiful town of Cascais was a true treat. We will go back and spend more time there while we are in Portugal, it's worth it.

Diego was amazing as was Sintra. Diego made this experience even better as he is a native son. The place is an absolute storehouse of surprises and we actually ran out of time as there was so much to see. We recommend 2 of these so you can get it all. We had a great time and will come back for more.

Good tour and nice way to get to Sintra but didn't get much from the tour guide, he was more of a driver who just dropped us off and let us walk, that was disappointing.
