I can't recommend this tour enough! The places themselves were beautiful and totally worth the visit, but our guide, Antonio, made the whole trip extra special by giving us the history and context of everything before we even left Lisbon. Sintra castle is gorgeous, but, because it's so crowded, having Antonio there to explain what each room was for really helped make sense of it all. Having some down time in Cascais in the afternoon was also really good, and Boca do Inferno is a really beautiful place.

Our tour guide is very informative and friendly The Sintra day trip was very interesting, the weather was a bit foggy and wet, but we enjoyed the walks

It was well managed tour and learned a lot about Lisbon history...driver maguel was an awesome guide and human being..
