Our tour guide was amazing my husband left his expensive camera in Sintra, and our tour guide went with him and made sure we got it back. We really appreciated that!

Loved it! Beautiful places and sights. Being a half day tour it was a little rushed but a wonderful experience nonetheless.

A really enjoyable 6-hour tour. We did and saw all the things represented in Viator's description. Ricardo, our tour guide from Yellow Bus tour company in Lisbon, did a great job of explaining lots of interesting facts and pointing out key things to see. And he did a tremendous job of herding the 29 of us around the 4-stops while giving us ample time to see things on our own when appropriate while also keeping us efficiently moving along. We are really glad we took advantage of going to these places via a tour, rather than trying to do is on our own via public transportation or rental car, due to limited parking, narrow roads, lots of turns, etc. We learned a lot about Portugal and Lisbon during this tour. Also, in addition to Ricardo, compliments to our bus driver very comfortable large bus who did a masterful job of handling the challenging narrow roads, sharp curves, and steep hills without incident.

A must see excursion! This was a 4-5 hour trip to Sintra, Pena Palace, Capo de Roca and Cascais. The bus ride was comfortable with the appropriate amount of time at each stop.

Sintra was a charming city. We enjoyed the lighthouse, farthest western point of continental Europe. Pena Palace was so much fun. We loved the color scheme of the Palace, bright and cheerful. Many opportunities for photos. This is an absolute must do for your trip to Lisbon.

The tour was exactly what was advertised. Our guide Ana was great sorry if I'm misspelling that. She had good energy, she kept everyone organized, was totally patient, and really had a lot of great information to pass on to us. Just know that where you pick up the bus is not in the main area where the majority of the Lisbon center tour buses are located. You really do need to meet up at the Comercio Square Praça do Comércio, and the Yellow Bus kiosk is right on the corner by the outside restaurants. Any taxi or Uber driver can take you right there. I just know I had a panic moment when my Uber driver didn't stop in the area where I saw all the other tour buses - our drop point was at least another mile or so away. The gathering area is right next to the water and in the same square as the Beer Museum Museu da Cerveja but the Yellow Bus Kiosk on the opposite corner of the square - not next to the beer museum. We had about 14 people in our group. Mostly couples, one family, and I was traveling solo. We went first to Pena Palace, and were given radio units with ear buds to wear on a lanyard when in the palace. Ana could then walk us through the palace and give us a guided audio tour. It was great because we could stop and take photos, and even in the crowd in the palace, we always knew were to find her if we got separated by a room. The palace was beautiful - quite modern compared to some I've toured - but it tended to get quite crowded with foot traffic. Very narrow corridors, and other tourists maybe more in a hurry to just pass through the rooms quickly. You are allowed to take photographs, but can't use flash photography. We had opportunities to take photos on the different levels outside of the Palace, and we actually had good sunshine on our visit! After we left the Palace, we drove back into central Sintra, and had the opportunity to roam around for 30 minutes. I would have liked more time in Sintra, because even though it's small, it was a really gorgeous town. I was able to pick up some postcards, as well as stop at the post office for stamps, and pick up some gifts to take home.... but that was about all the time I had before we had to meet back at the bus. After that, we drove to Cabo da Roca lighthouse, and got another opportunity for photos. We didn't stay long though, and then headed to Boca de Inferno in time for some gorgeous pictures at Sunset. And then it was back to Central Lisbon to be dropped off for the close of the tour. The driver was kind of enough to make some quick stops at hotels for some of the passengers, if it was on the way to the drop point - so that was nice. I had visited Lisbon before and done a 1/2 day trip to Sintra, but hadn't gone into the Pena Palace due to the crowds in summer time. I really just booked this tour specifically to see the Palace, so I wasn't disappointed! The day goes by quickly, but it was a lot of fun!

Excellent trip but could have extended time in Sintra to walk around more and not visited Devils hole. Cascais was also good to see.

Great tour, guide gave us sufficient time to walk around the palace. Stops at Cabo do Roca and Cascais were short, but I didn't feel that more time was needed to take some pictures.
