This tour was one of the highlights of our trip to Portugal. Our guide Bernardo was awesome. He had tons of knowledge about everyplace we visited and delivered it in a manner that kept even our 2 teen daughters interested the full 8 hours. He was prompt when picking us up, was an incredible guide and overall a really nice guy. We would highly recommend seeing Sintra with him and hope to hire him to see more of it when we return.

Our guide, Tomas, was the most knowledgeable guide that I’ve had on any trip I’ve ever been on. With a degree in history and an obvious passion for teaching, Tomas made our tour of Sintra, Cascais and Cabo de Roca the highlight of our trip to the Lisbon area. Can’t wait to come back!
