We took a private tour of Sintra and loved every minute. Maria (only) was not only energetic but had a fantastic sense of humor. She was extremely knowledgeable as a guide at the sites, but also very informative in Portuguese history. The trip was never rushed and we didn't arrive back until 5:30. After we confirmed we had no other plans for the day she offered to stop for coffee in the village and we had the greatest time with her. I was glad that we added nothing else to the trip - I feel that would have rushed things more than I would have liked. I would highly recommend the trip and our wonderful guide - Maria (only).

We had no hassle throughout the whole journey.The guide,Rodriguez was very friendly and shared lots of information about Portugal and the places we visited .It was fun overall and I would recommend this guided trip to Sintra for other fellow travellers.Cheers

Tiego was lovely, very kind and patient and gave us tidbits of information throughout our drive. He was punctual picking us up and the car had the booster seat we requested for our toddler. Would book again and recommend this service to others!

We were unsure whether to take this tour or go on our own. Taking this tour is the best option if you want to see everything without missing any detail or any place. The guide, Maria, was excellent. He made the excursion very enjoyable and fun.

The guide Victor was great. Enjoyed our entire experience. Highly recommended.
