This was by far the best tour we took on our entire trip. Eddy and Andre were absolutely wonderful tour guides with a great sense of humor. Eddy was our van driver and he was extremely knowledgeable about not only the history of what we were seeing, but even more in depth about Portugal and so many other subjects. I can't say enough about these guys. We could not have had a better ending to our European vacation. We wish we could give them 6 stars!!! Eddy is the best tour guide!!!!!

Our tour was great, we got our pick up on time, our tour guide had internet in his van which was great, he was super friendly and very informative. Our trip was 6 months ago so I forgot his name : he took us to some great spots, gave us a lot of time to explore and see the beauty that is sintra. It was a stress free day not having to worry about where to go, where to park, what trains to take etc, he took care of everything for us and our group was just 8 ppl so it was the perfect size. I would highly recommend this tour if you are looking to see the main attractions in sintra, it was lovely!

We had a really good time with our guide and fellow travellers. It was insightful with lots of humour and camaraderie. The places we visited was of course stunning and I would recommend this to anyone visiting Portugal. Our guide was fantastic and we couldn't ask for a better person to introduce us to thIs stunning country. The views were picturesque and the stories were incredible. A must-do!

The tour was amazing. Eduard was hilarious and made our day so much greater, just from the first moment we met him. He took us to the best places in Portugal, was our tour guide for the museum so we knew so much more about Portugal history We stayed in Portugal for 4 nights and this was the best day

We usually travel independently, but occasionally book day trips. On an August, 2017, trip to Portugal, we booked a the Sintra Full Day Tour -- and were very glad we did. We chose this tour partly because it was limited to eight guests. Our guide, Miguel, picked up five Spanish-speaking guests in Lisbon and then picked the two of us up at our Lisbon hotel. Thankfully, he spoke both Spanish and English fluently because the Spanish guests spoke not a word of English, and we spoke no Spanish. We had visited the National Palace the day before and Miguel took us to see Pena Palace and Quinta da Regaleira. Without Miguel, we'd never have found either palace. The area is mountainous and hilly with narrow winding roads. There are buses, but the waits at stopping points are long and crowded. Prior to each palace, Miguel talked some about the palace we were about to visit. He then arranged a meeting place and time, and he was right on target as to the timing. We then visited Cabo Roca, the westernmost point of Continental Europe and Cacais, now a wealthy fishing village. Miguel advised us on arranging visits to other sites that we enjoyed later in our visit to Sintra.

There are other palaces -- Monserette and a Moorish palace, for example -- that many visitors would enjoy. These are minor palaces and usually not on any tour. I know that Miguel is familiar with these palaces, and perhaps he could offer another tour that would include them. Miguel is very capable, an excellent guide, and a great ambassador for his country. We loved Portugal -- partly because of the friendly, helpful, and English-speaking people we met during our independent travel -- and would return again in a heartbeat.

Wonderful and knowledgeable guide. Great trip. We went to Sintra and saw the castle, then down the hill for another castle or the coastal cliffs two options. Then we went and had a wonderful and leisurely lunch. After that, to the western continental Europe. Then on to Cascais for a beautiful setting sun before returning to our hotel. While riding in the van, we heard much about the culture and history of Portugal. Couldnt had been much better.

I rarely take official tours when I travel - I prefer to read about a location and tour it on my own schedule - but the Sintra tour from Viator was superb and comes highly recommended.
Our expert and friendly tour guide picked us up at our accommodation and mesmerized us with knowledge of Portugal, Lisbon and the coastal jewel Cascais on the way to Sintra.
After a quick stop at the picturesque 'westernmost spot in Europe' it was on to Sintra - where the spectacular day just kept getting better.
Due to the guide's connections we were able to swiftly enter the Sintra attractions - and we toured them in amazement thanks to the guide's information and insights.
We were whisked back to our accommodation at the end of the day.
Five stars!

In that all important rush to beat the queues at Sintra, this must be the trip to do. Excellent balance of stops through the day and our guide/driver was full of energy and had us well entertained with interesting stories.

We took the full day Sintra tour Let the Fairy Tale Begin with the Lisbon Native Tours. Our guide, Eddie, picked us up promptly at our hotel and the fun began. Eddie told us we would be doing the tour in reverse as the fog was so thick you wouldn't be able to see the top of the Pena Palace.

We made stops in Cascais and saw the sandy beaches and rugged rocks. We also visited Cabo Roco, the western-most point of Europe. Eddie shared a wealth of information about the sites, and we enjoyed a lot of laughs. He has a sharp sense of humor which really made the day.

At our next stop, Eddie treated us to tickets for his favorite place, a World Heritage site by Unesco - Quinta Da Regaleira. This was the estate of an alchemist. The home is quite unique and the grounds even more so. Eddie told us about the the history of the Night Templer and the Masons.He pointed out the AllSeeing Eye found on our U.S. one dollar bill. We walked down the nine rings of the mystical well where Eddie used our cameras to take our pictures. That was a nice touch

We stopped in Sintra for a quick lunch and shopping. It would have been nice to have had a bit more time in Sintra.

Pena Palace is amazing. Eddie led a fun tour through the palace . We walked all along the upper parts of the palace with vistas of the valley. Pena Palace is also a Unesco World Heritage site. It was built by King Ferdinand II in the mid 1800's. The colors of the different turrets pinks and yellow work beautifully together. It was indeed a very fairy tale place


This was a fun, informative tour. I highly recommend it!

If you are in Lisbon for more than two days this tour is a must. Our Viator experience was great as it always has been. We enjoyed the experience of Sintra Palace which is quite extraordinary due to it's architecture and elaborate rooms, salons and furnishings. Our guide gave us the opportunity to choose what we did and we all enjoyed the coastal scenery and certainly saw more of Portugal than we would have had we just stayed in Lisbon. Our lunch was what I would consider very Portuguese and not to touristy - we sat outside and were well looked after.
Just do it!

Fantastic tour! After researching other tours, this appeared to be better organized as to the order of sites to visit. Our tour guide wish I could remember his name was great, very informative, and pleasant.

If I could give a 10, I would! Eddie was our guide and the trip could not have been more fun or informative. He was early to pick us up, which was perfect for us. He had a great sense of humor and spoke perfect English. He always gave us enough time at each stop and was attentive to our needs. His choice for lunch was perfect. We arrived home tired but exuberant. Who could ask for more! This was the third trip I arranged through aviator and all more than met our cpectations.

We had a great day on our Sintra tour and were fortunate to have Eddie as our guide. He was helpful, knowledgeable and had a wonderland sense of humour. He made our trip special.
The sights are amazing and we took the time to walk through the palace gardens which were beautiful. Quinta da Regaleira is also worth visiting and hearing its history.
