What an exceptional day trip! John, our guide, was amazing. He had all the tricks and was very knowledgable on local history! The palace is a must, nice to get there early and beat the crowds. Sinatra is so majestic. Take johns advice on lunch if you want an authentic Portuguese experience. The coast is beautiful for pictures! Cascais deserves and extra day, we just got a preview! But of your short on time, this is absolutely the best was to see it all! Also, great accommodation with the car, waters, conversation! Highlight of our trip for sure!
This was an excellent tour. Our guide was so personable and knew everything about the area. She went out of her way to make sure we were comfortable and see as much as you can squeeze into eight hours.
Our day with Alberto was great! He was very knowledgeable and we had a lovely day in Sintra and along the coast. Highly recommend.
Fantastic, Andrew was a very personable and knowledgeable guide. WE highly recommend this tour and him. He tailored the tour based on our interests and suggested touring Monserrate palace and gardens in Sintra - we are so glad we did, it was gorgeous.
Alberto has been an excellent guide for us. We gave him a list of sites that we wanted to see and he did everything that we hope for to please us! We had a wonderful tasty meal at the lunch time to the "Casa da Pedro"! We recommand this excursion!
My family and I really enjoyed this tour. Our guide Joao was extremely knowledgeable about the history of Portugal and all of the cities we visited. I highly recommend Joao and this tour.
Best way to travel...private tour! From the pick up at the hotel in the morning through the end...we had a delightful day! We are usually not big on taking tours prefer to do things at our own pace, but we would have never been able to see and do as much as we did without Anna, our guide. She allowed us to visit the sights at our own pace and even added a few small side diversions, since there was time. Delightful local cuisine lunch stop in the middle of the day was a bonus. Anna was amazing all around and we would highly recommend you request her! Enjoy your tour!!!

The tour was excellent, our guide Alberto was very well prepared, knew a lot of interesting things about Lisbon and about the visited places. He always asked us what would be our wish at the place we visited. He was very polite, and kind, with a great sense of humor. His driving style and the chosen speed was perfect, although sometimes he had to be very creative on the narrow streets in Sintra. Because Alberto's personality the tour exceed our expectations.
Albert was an excellent guide and showed us some fantastic spots throughout the day!
My daughter and I went on this tour with João as our guide. It was a wonderful day. He is extremely knowledgable about the history of Portugal and a pleasure to spend the day with. He answered all questions and knew so many facts about the places we visited. Took us to a great restaurant for lunch and we had a wonderful time just sitting , eating and talking to him. Cannot wait to go back to Portugal with my husband and have João teach him about this wonderful country. His English was perfect!
This tour was fantastic. Our guide, Joao, was outstanding. Very professional, friendly, funny, and knowledgeable. He provided lots of information on Lisbon, the history of Portugal, the town of Sintra and the Pena Palace. I highly recommend going private on this one as Sintra gets crowded and it was nice to have his undivided attention as he had lots of interesting facts about the palace and its former inhabitants. Joao also suggest a lovely family owned restaurant for lunch. he obviously comes here a lot as the owners and servers were super attentive to us. And his recommendations were spot on... delicious! The drive back to Lisbon, stopping for some shopping and some sight seeing in Caiscais and Estoril was relaxed and enjoyable. All in all, a great day of sightseeing!
Our guide Jon and driver Diego were wonderful!! Every stop and tour was explained before and during our walks...very informative ...a wonderful experience!! I would recommend the private sintra etc tour to anyone!!
Great tour. Our guide,Joao was very good. Highly recommended.
This was an amazing day trip! Miguel was a knowledgeable and passionate guide and the fact that it was a private tour really enabled us to take full advantage of all he had to tell us. The site are truly incredible. We even stopped far off the beaten tourist track for a great seafood lunch at a local restaurant. Highly recommended!!
Superb guide, excellent trip and great value for money. Recommend
Wonderful excursion. Our guide, Ana, was intelligent, funny and knew 5 languages. She loved knowledge and history, and added so many colorful details to our tour. Sintra and the Pena Palace are breathtaking. Our guide was prompt, and considerate. A wonderful day all around.
Wow. We had an unbelievably awesome day. Our tour guide, Joao Correia, made the day incredible. He was so knowledgeable, patient, and made the day just the way we wanted it. I would highly recommend this day trip to anyone and if you can, ask for Joao. We went to Sintra, saw the castle, ate at a local restaurant, saw spectacular views, went to the coast, had an enjoyable drive, shopped, and had one of our most memorable days ever. Thank you!!!!
Sintra was a fabulous city! Toured the Pena National Palace. So much to see. wished we could have stayed longer. We also went to the westernmost point of Europe, Cabo da Roca. This is a private tour so I wished we have asked to have stayed a little longer in the places we visited and have taken more photos because after a brief intro to a photo opp to Cascais, we just drove by and as well as Estoril. We got back to our hotel earlier than expected. Overall, we enjoyed the trip and our tour guide/driver was very informative and knowledgeable.
