based on 6 reviews

the guide was very friendly and professional. the arrangements of the trip was quite good. we went to the different places with sufficient time to enjoy. i recommended this company to explore Sintra. one thing that you will have to be careful: if you're the only one to book one trip, it might be cancelled or merged into another trip.

Lionel was absolutely great. He was so knowledgeable about Sintra and Cascais. He answered all of our questions and gave us extra info on top of it. The only suggestion I would make for this tour is to spend more time in Sintra and less in Cascais. Both were beautiful and fun, but I personally really loved Sintra.

Pedro was a really good guide, he had a lot of info about many places and things. We learned a lot about Portugal. Also, very smart in organising the time and visits. Thank you!!!

Excellent and so much fun! We loved this tour and the tour guid Francisco was friendly and very knowledgeable. We will book again for sure! Thanks Francisco!

Pleasant and enthusiastic tour guide, definitely recommended!
