My husband and I thoroughly enjoyed our day trip to Sintra from Lisbon. Our guide, Alex, was terrific! He was punctual, polite, and easy to talk to. In addition to telling us about Portugal’s history, he also told us about what life is like for most Portuguese. The weather wasn’t great for our trip - rainy, foggy - but Alex helped us make the best of it. We highly recommend this tour!

Before the tour, Maria at Top Ten Tours was in touch to discuss what we wanted to do and very helpful with suggestions. On the day, Alex our guide was punctual, friendly and well informed. He gave us great tips and helped us to make the most of our time, including making restaurant bookings and taking us to a viewpoint.

Alex was stellar! He arrived at the agreed upon time happy & enthusiastic. We arrived at the Pena Palace with minimal queue. He was very knowledgeable and was able to share local insights. He facilitated our ticket purchase & walked with us through the palace pointing out facts & interesting details. When we left the palace the lines were so long reinforcing that taking Alex’s advice was the right choice. We went to Monserratte, which was wonderful & again even more re insight via Alex. Alex was so professional & courteous making sure we had what we needed to have a successful day. I would highly recommend him to anyone considering visiting Sintra.
