There were only two of us with the guide and the driver because it’s low season. So kinda like a private tour! The guide (sorry I forgot her name, should be Julianna or something like that) gave us very detailed explanations for the two monuments.
We had an amazing tour with our guide Vasco. We were picked up near the Hotel and drop off on a central square. Our tour started in the morning with the cost-road trip through Estoril and a Coffee-break in Cascais. Then we climbed by car the hill-road to Cape Roca and walked a little there. Fantastic views.
We started the visit of the garden in Quinta da Regaleira, and then the castle itself. After that we eat lunch in Sintra, you can choose the location or go with you guide to a small Restaurant near by your own costs, we did the later and had lunch and drinks for 12 Euro each. After Lunch we visited first Sintra city for half an hour and then the garden and castle of Pena Palace.
The entrance-fee is included, we had no waiting line and the journey was very comfortable. If you dont have much time, the perfect day of sigh-seeing outside of Lisbon.
You will have your own guide, so you dont need to worry about getting the fact right that was also most comfortable. You can ask everything and all the guides seemed very nice and funny. You will feel more like a friend than a costumer. We would do the tour even next time in Lisbon again because it is so well organized, we couldnt do it in this short time on our own.
Dropping off point is an central square in the city. For us easy to walk home. Dont forget enough water, it could be hot.
Completely worth the money!
The tour guides were very informative and explained many interesting things about the places we visited and the surrounding area. They took us to a fabulous place for lunch, which was the best food we had on our entire trip!
The tour itinerary was very comprehensive and well arranged with stopovers at Cascais and Cabo da Roca in the morning on the way to Sintra. Highlights were the guided visits to Quinta da Regaleira and Pena Palace and we were happy that Lilliana and Stas were both helpful and informative making the experience more interesting with their insights. Thanks Cooltour Lisbon!
Amazing! A must for anyone going to Portugal/ Lisbon.
Well-timed visits to two monuments within Sintra with explanation
Overall this tour was excellent -- our guide was very knowledgeable and she spoke excellent English. That being said, we had a mixed tour with a lovely couple from Spain so the guide was required to switch back and forth between English and Spanish to accommodate the tour.
good tour , driver guide , hotel pickup .small group .
This tour was not worth 100 Euros per person. When we booked we were promised a pick up at 9 a.m. at our apartment/hotel and drop off at the same location after the tour. Then just before the tour it changed to 8:30 a.m., just a short walk from where we stayed, which was okay, but then at the end of the day we were dropped off at a square 20 minutes away from where we had been picked up. It had rained most of the day and we were not thrilled about the drop off. Also, we were told we would arrive back to Lisbon between 6:30 and 7:00 and we were dropped off before 5:00, leaving us with the feeling that we had been short changed on the tour. We were suppose to have commentary through the Pena Palace tour, which we really didnt get. We did get a great commentary through Quinta da Regaleira. The tour felt a bit rushed through the two biggest attractions, Pena and Quinta, with limited time for exploring or pictures. I dont feel we got the extra touches that should have been included in an expensive tour.
The tour guide was boring, rude, and basically read off of a script. I booked it because i like the information you get from a guided tour, but I would have been happier doing the tour on my own. Its basically a ride to the different palaces with a few other stops thrown in. I would suggest renting a car and driving yourself.
