    Our tour guide David was excellent the average rating is purely based on the content of the trip. As there is a fair bit of hilly walking I would not recommend this trip for the elderly or those who have limited mobility

    Just forget the name of the tour guide. From my experience, this is a "must see" destination. The guide was knowledgeable, nice, helpful and protective.
    Pick up, drop off on time as planned.
    Quite convenient when visiting Sintra since our Priority tickets were ready. We did not have to wait.
    Cascai was so beautiful with the beach and downtown.
    My daughter was not feeling well. He let my daughter sit in front and showed us where to buy sea sick pills.
    Good job Mr tour guide, and Thank you very much.

    It was a great day trip where our guide Rui made it even more enjoyable. He took us to the different places before the big buses started to arrive so we were able to see everything listed in the description of the trip with no crowds. Sintra and Cascais are very nice places to visit and the road to get there was also beatiful.

    Firstly can I call out a big thank you to our guide Rui. What a really interesting guy who got our small group involved and engaged from the first minute.

    Sintra was amazing. The Pena palace is stunning and well worth the visit. When we were at Cabo de Roca it was blowing a gale but msuch a dramatic view and not to be missed.

    Any trip to Lisbon would be poorer if you missed this wonderful tour and agan lastly a big call out to Rui for being a great guide

    This was an excellent small group trip with only 5 People in the minibus. Our guide Carlos was informative and helpful and the optional lunch was excellent value at 23 euros. We packed a lot into the day and there were some unexpected stops that added more value to what was already a great trip. Thank you.

    We had a great tour. We didn't have a lot if time in Lisbon so this tour gave us the opportunity to see cascais and Sinatra. Carlos was a great tour guide who provided a lot of history about Lisbon and other stops on the tour.

    We had a beautiful day on the Portuguese coast. Our guide, Paulo (sp?) was very knowledgeable, friendly, and organized. An excellent guide. We loved Caiscais and Sintra and loved seeing the coastline. This tour is a must do for those visiting Lisbon. It’s easy and relaxing, and a nice way to see more than just the city.

  • 20-Feb-2020

    Good day out up the coast from Lisbon then inland to Sintra. Sintra was very good. We visited two castles/palaces: Palacio Nacional de Sintra and the quirky Palacio de la Pena. Both were very interesting but very different.

    Our driver was Alberto and he was professional and an outstanding tour guide. The Fatima part of trip was a religious experience. Our stop in Osbidos was amazing as well.
