Great tour, great driver

Jose picked us up from the hotel on time. The car was perfect for 6 people and the journey was accordingly comfortable. Jose guided us excellently and explained everything very well. He responded flexibly to our wishes, so we could design the stops individually. Even when the time was up, we stopped in Cascais for a stroll. In the end, the tour lasted almost 2 hours longer than planned. Absolutely no problem for Jose! The tour itself was fantastic. Sintra a dream. You should have seen it. I would prefer to visit the Pena Palace instead of the castle due to lack of time. Capo da Rocha, a short swim in the Atlantic and the final stroll through Cascais round off a great day impressively. I can highly recommend our driver / guide. He was awesome !! Thanks to Jose !!

In our opinion, the tour was firmly planned, but the respective stay could be varied by personal wishes. We had booked the tour in German, but Luis the guide only spoke English. It was possible, but it was more exhausting. My subsequent email to the “boss” went unanswered, which I find particularly unfortunate.
