Ingresso para o Palácio da Pena incluído!
Our Guide, Mr Silva was amazing. In one day he showed us many places. We got to Pena Palace in Sintra, walk a little in Sintra center,. The went to a quiet restaurant in Colares near the wine tasting. From there to Cabo Roca and to Cascais for Pictures. In one day we got a little taste of Sintra. Recommended for those with little timebut that want a incredible day.
The palace looks almost modern. Saw all of the rooms, and they were all beautifully furnished. Very vibrant colorful architecture. We had a wonderful day with our tour guide. We traveled up the coast along the ocean with beautiful vistas. We made several stops along the way to visit points of interest. Learned about the history of Portugal and the past monarchy. We had a delightful lunch at an outdoor café, and tried some cherry port in a little chocolate cup, that was delightful. It was a full day. Our guide was very knowledgeable, and we enjoyed our conversations. He went out of his way to make sure that we were enjoying ourselves. I would highly recommend this tour!!
Such a packed day we ran out of time to see the Moorish Palace and Palace of Queluz!! In hindsight had we known would have skipped Cascais and the western point as we started with that these rather than the advertised itinerary. Despite this was an amazing day, National Palace, Sintra and Pena Palace were truly beautiful. Wine tasting was good and worth buying a couple of the 4 Euro bottles as really good quality.
Our tour guide arrived grouchy and did not seem eager to please us. He did get us to all the sights on the itinerary, but in hindsight we could have accomplished most of what he did with us on our own, spending longer in some places and eliminating others entirely.
A really nice overview of Sintra and the coast. We could have used more time at the Palace, I didn't have enough time to see the gardens. The guide was informative but sometimes had trouble with our American English. Wine tour was not possible since owner was away. We had some wine but it wasn't very good. In the future, I would request a guide who doesn't smoke, I ended up with a sinus headache, he didn't smoke near me but the car smelled of smoke.
Booked this trip accidentally! Thought it was a small group tour less than 12 or so but was pleasantly surprised at how personal and affordable the entire trip turned out to be. Jose was an AMAZING and knowledgeable guide. He picked us up in the morning and we went all over Portugal until about 5 or 6pm! We went to Cascais, Pena, Estoril and Sintra. We had beautiful experiences of the Westernmost point of Europe at Cabo da Roca, had a wine tasting, opportunities to tour 3 castles, shop and eat with the locals, visit beaches and incredible highlights like Boca do Inferno a rock formation named the Mouth of Hell. Jose was incredibly conscientious of what we wanted to see and was so knowledgeable it was like walking with a historian. So, so very glad we booked this trip, but also that we got Jose! Thank you so much!!
My daughter and I had a terrific day. Our guide, Jose from Lisbon on wheels was pleasant, informative and very attentive.
It was a full day and we were able to cover a lot of different areas.
I would highly recommend this tour.
I went on many tours during this vacation but this was by far the best trip. The Pena Palace was beautiful. This was a private tour so the tour guide was flexible about how much time we spent at each location and helped me find the best locations to take critical pictures photography is my hobby. Our guide also gave us ideas of where to eat and what to see at each location so we didn't miss anything. We also had free time on our own to just walk around and explore.
