We had the best time on this tour and we learned so much about Lisbon, Sintra and other parts of Portugal from our guide. We were never rushed and each of the three main stops and free time in the city of Sintra felt like the perfect time. This was one of the few tours to include Monserrate and it was an absolute gem. We also had the option to add the National palace or time to take a long leisurely lunch. Our guide Gustavo was knowledgeable, thoughtful and tailored the tour to our interests and made excellent food recommendations for pastries and lunch. Highly recommend this small group tour for the personalized and top notch service.

I must have read over 50 Sintra tour descriptions between Get Your Guide, Viator and Air BnB - I couldnt be happier that I chose this one with Gustavo! He was full of energy with a great demeanor. While providing a wealth of knowledge, there was a great mixture of guided time and time to explore solo. Book this one to get a great feel for Sintra by visiting these 3 palaces and the town itself!

The day to Sintra was a great adventure. Our guide, Augusto was very good with interesting facts about history and other little stories during our tour; the region and the history in general of Spain and this region. He also made sure we went to and started our exploration at Pena when there was practically nobody there. A couple of hours later there were hundreds of people. Everything was amazing and something you should do if your are in Lisbon and have a day. We were in a small group with just the three of us and a couple from Spain that we really hit it off with. The sites and a leisurely lunch in Sintra was great and a full day of good activities. Well worth the time and money.
