Very interesting tour. Be prepared to climb a lot. Take umbrella, it could be rainy in the mountains.
Excellent trip.
Nadine_L, Nov 2022
Good trip in all aspects. Excellent guide, Carlos. Cascais and Sintra are a must for those who visit Lisbon.
Michelle_L, Nov 2022
Our guide was wonderful and added so much to our tour. She was truly the best part of the tour. We enjoyed all our stops very much.
Excellent tour
Roberta_E, Nov 2022
This was one of the most beautiful places I have seen in Portugal. Guide was excellent as were the other people on the tour.
Daniel is awesome!
CarloJose_R, Nov 2022
Daniel our tour guide was awesome, he was multilingual, he was very knowledgable of the area and he was very engaging. I would strongly recommend taking this tour esp going to Sintra as you get there early and comfortably. We are a young family and we usually do our own tour without a guide but this was a great decision on our part to use their tour as it was more convenient and we did not waste our time. If ever we go back to Lisbon we will use their services again.
Well organized trip led by a thoughtful and well informed guide.A wonderful day with private time too.
Gillian_M, Nov 2022
The guide wove a wonderful and true story into our circuit of Quinta da Regaleira.s gardens Regaleirgardens'design
Best tour of Portugal!
MekemekeFaaoso, Nov 2022
Huge thank you to Michaela for a truly wonderful experience! Her patience and knowledge is something I will never forget. Even though it was rainy most of the day, she made it all the more fun! I loved the small, intimate tour group as well.
Not worth it
chengcui_z, Nov 2022
WARNING: you won't be able to visit the Pena palace, which is the place I wanted to visit the most on this trip. There is simply not enough time in the schedule for that, given the typical long waiting line outside of the door. The tour company knows that very well but they still use Pena Palace as a big highlight in their ads, which is deceiving to me, especially given the high price tag.
Response from Host, Nov 2022
Sir. You should read better the higlights or whatss inlcuded. We give 1h30m to visit the palace its not our fault if there is a big line, Our service includes waiting for 1h30m /45m for you to visit, inlcuded entrance in ragaleira palace and garden with guided visited. If we give ime to visit we put on our description. Thank you

Great time for singles or groups!
James_W, Nov 2022
The guide was fantastic, both funny and brilliant. He was honest about the challenges facing towns like Sintra, and placed the tour into a great context both historical and current. Driver was also skilled and quick.
It was about the tour guide.
Willie_R, Nov 2022
Ricky, the tour guide, was excellent. Informative, pleasant, and reliable. He made the trip more enjoyable. On a horrible rainy and very foggy day, he kept us perked.
Laughing in Cascais
Sharon_B, Nov 2022
Our guide Mariana was so much fun, she took us all over the place and we laughed non stop. It absolutely bucketed down the whole morning but it just added to the mystery of the places. We also scored an awesome table for cafe and then she took us to an amazing place for lunch also. Fabulous day!
Top-notch tour
Celine_d, Oct 2022
Daniel, our tour guide, was delightful. Very knowledgeable about the various locations we visited and fluent in all the languages the group was speaking.
Great trip to Sintra with Carlos our tour guide
Kenelene_M, Oct 2022
Carlos our tour guide is very knowledgeable & funny.We enjoyed our tour & covered what is expected.Also he was kind enough to assist me in calling our hotel in Porto for confirmation & after that I was able to enjoy & focus on our trip to Sintra. The restaurant where he took us was good both the Service and food .
Recommend to anyone!
Tomoko_N, Oct 2022
Guide was very friendly and knowledgeable. She did really well. Wherever we visited was very nice. I wish Cascais would be better beach, but other than that was good
A must see. Tour guide was excellent.
Daniel_L, Oct 2022
The history and amazing landscape and castles. A bit of a walk but well worth the journey. Highly recommended.
Life beyond Lisbon
kathy_s, Oct 2022
Michaela was fun and knowledgeable- great combination for a tour guide. The group was from 5 different countries and everyone had a sense of humor. We learned, we laughed, we shared experiences throughout the day. AND we had great advice about where and what to buy at the local pastry shops. Life is good.
Lovely day trip
Mauricio_M, Oct 2022
Joanna was a lovely tour guide! Lots of great activities and sites to visit in a day and not too far from Lisbon (~20 mins). Would recommend!
Tour felt rushed. Tour...
AnhThu_T, Oct 2022
Tour felt rushed. Tour did not provide adequate time to tour Pena Palace. Tour guide was not helpful, accommodating and a bit rude.
Response from Host, Nov 2022
Thank you for the review The problem was not the time that we give at Pena Palace its more the new way of promoting the tikets from their part that ists not ok. Example you buy a tiket for 9:30 you only get in 10:15 nad if you want to see other sites, we have to have time for all things. Because tecniclay our guide, our visit included by us, our driving to other places was good not he pena palace the only place we dont controle because we dont do it.
Very disappointed - Didn’t deliver on normal expectations
Margaret_G, Oct 2022
The guide was sub-par and the tour company does not pick you up and drop you off at your hotel (as advertised). The guide did not offer enough background on the history of the sites we visited, he spent more time joking with participants. He did not provide insight into what we should see (vs skip) for 2 visits where we were on our own for a time ( the village of Sintra and Peña Castle). He provided the bare minimum of info, and it was dumbed- down. He even called out and woke up a sleeping passenger on our mini-bus, even though we weren’t near a stopping point. I have been on many tours, and this guide was the worst that I have had.
