Amazing visit guided by Orlando

Orlando, our guide, organized our day so that we were able to enjoy the Sintra Palacio da Pena with minimal delay. Huge crowds but we sailed thru. He also had a good knowledge of history so we learned a good bit of Portugese history plus much about the arts. All in all, this was a perfect day!
Wonderful food tour

Excellent guide, Antonio was a great companion and talked with us easily, ate things we wanted to try in an easy Walking tour - and food was excellent, and was very full afterwards which was a good sign. Also gave us great recommendations for other places to try in Lisbon
Plan your day in Sintra!

This experience deserves more than 5 stars. Tiago gave us an outstanding - and customized - tour of Sintra. He accommodated our preferences and we were able to plan what we wanted to see. He also took us to a perfect restaurant for a local lunch and introduced us to egg tarts! When we chatted about how we enjoy wine, he arranged for an extra stop on the way back for a quick wine tasting. Tiago exceeded all of our expectations, and he was a delightful guide that enhanced the entire experience.
Great Guide and Tour!

Awesome, flexible tour of Sintra. Peña Palace and then scenic drive to Cabo do Roca and Cascais. Our tour guide Zé was unbelievably awesome—friendly, knowledgeable, and flexible. Couldn’t recommend more.
Wonderful tour…worth the money.

My husband walks slowly with a cane, so I chose this tour hoping it could be adapted to his needs. My son had visited Sintra a few months earlier and had discouraged us from visiting Sintra because he thought it would be too challenging for his dad. We were prepared to skip the Peña Palace, but our guide got us up clise to drop us off, got us priority on the shuttle and knew where the elevator was which cut out a lot of waiting and climbing for my husband. Once we were in I was so glad we got to see it. Interesting history and beautiful architecture and decor. The palace offers some incredible views of the countryside and the sea. The drive back to Lisbon was spectacular along the coast, including a stop at a nice cafe and the westernmost point in Europe. Highly recommend this tour.
