What people are saying about Pena Palace

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.

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!

Lovely tour with a great person, Nuno. Didn't know when time has passed and I recomand this from my heart. A living fairytale, this part of the country. All the best, Nuno!

Portuguese culture at its finest! Big shout out to Nuno & Maria for being a part of a great day seeing some beautiful scenery - muito obrigado a todos :)

Well organized tour. Awesome guides with outstanding attitude.
