This tour was amazing! Phillipe was our tour guide and was wonderful! The whole family enjoyed our time with him. He was so professional, kind and respectful. He was also a lot of fun. He knew the history of Portugal in great detail and integrated it very well throughout the tour so as not to overwhelm us and we would actually remember what he was explaining. The pace and timing of the tour, the different stops, lunch, side-stops, etc, was perfect. Phillipe recommended a perfect spot for lunch that all of us just loved! The van was clean, well-appointed and very comfortable. We highly recommend this tour and Phillipe! You will not regret it!
I really enjoyed this tour. It was definitely a little rushed. We had little time for lunch in Sintra 30 minutes but we went ahead and took the 1.5 hrs because that's the standard for PT. I also had to negotiate time too for us to walk around in Caiscais and request to stop at the devils mouth. I think he was excellent and widley informative, especially in the castle. My one complaint was that he never offered to take our picture. We went to several places like Cabo da Roca and he stayed in the car rather than taking our pictures by the water. I've had other guides who have done this trip with me and did the same. It's a nice day. Also, saying that Estoril is in the tour is ridiculous. You literally drive by the famous hotel and they give you some tidbits while you're at a stoplight. Just be warned.
Phillip was a very knowledgable and experienced guide. On the day we visited it was very busy and parking was not available so Phillip, who was our guide come driver had to stay with the car and could not accompany us inside the palaces. He, nonetheless, made up for that by giving us a lot of information by text and by taking us to a local lunch spot and introducing us to local Portuguese food. He also spent a lot of time on Cascais and Estoril and our tour did not finish until around 8 pm. It was almost an 11 hour private tour. Would HIGHLY recommend Phillip!
We had a fantastic day to Sintra and driving to Cascais and Estoril. We were accompanied by Miguel Pinto our very knowledgeable and well read guide. This was a private tour with just me and my wife and Miguel. Throughout the tour he explained about Lisbon and its history and provided us with many small anecdotes. Miguel's sense of humour made the tour and drive even more enjoyable.
Ana was our tour guide and she was the best guide ever! She is extremely knowledgeable about the region and it's history and she was an absolute pleasure to spend the day with. I highly recommend her for this tour and any other Lisbon tours!
We had an excellent guide, Miguel who was quite friendly in addition to being most knowledgeable. We enjoyed the Pena castle at Sintra. My wife was having trouble walking, but still managed to tour most of the palace area. We had a lovely lunch on the beach at Cascais.We would choose Miguel again.
Very disappointed that our guide just dropped us off to find our own way through the places, he was very friendly and knowledgeable, it could have been an excellent experience
Most other groups had their guides with them especially at Sintra
