Sintra: Self-Drive Sightseeing Tour for 2 People
- Private group
- Duration: 7 hours
This trip from Villa Tours was our absolute favorite part of our trip to Lisbon! Villa tours was extremely helpful and communicative, contacting us days before our trip to make sure everything went smoothly. They set us up with a beautiful route and the drive in the open air car through the hills around Sintra was amazing. It was great to be able to stop anywhere we wanted, but were also able to see the monuments. We had use of the car for the whole day. Plus, parking, which is hard to find at some stops was a lot easier with this tiny car!! Villa Tours checked up on us throughout the trip and were readily available should we have any issues. We highly recommend this experience for the price and will definitely visit Villa Tours again on our next trip to explore another area! Thank you for an amazing journey through your beautiful area!
The guide Mr Leitacio was amazing, his knowledge of the place, its history and culture great. Although a local born and bred guy, his command and diction of English was v good. Very friendly, the tour also had a free tasting of pastries and a drink as part of the tour. Despite the storm, wind and rain, he went out of his way to guide and help us in best possible way. The tour of 1/2 day is essentially sufficient incl. collection of souvenirs if any. Lovely Cascais, superb roads along the Atlantic. Worth the money paid.
We were surprised to have basically a private tour tailored to our needs! It was a wonderful experience where we learned a lot about the region, had great conversations, and also time to ourselves to explore. The highlight was the palace at Queluz! We practically had it to ourselves! I’d definitely recommend this tour to anyone and will be in contact to organize my next tour when I’m in Portugal!
Hi, Im sorry Ive forgotten the name of the person who had come to pick us up. The only downfall of the trip was he came to pick us up half hour late and we were dripping sweat since it was summer. The driver/guide was very sweet, he took us to 3 places as we had requested and lent us enough time to spend at all 4 palaces. Took us to this great patisserie too! The ride also was very comfortable.
My husband and I thoroughly enjoyed our day trip to Sintra from Lisbon. Our guide, Alex, was terrific! He was punctual, polite, and easy to talk to. In addition to telling us about Portugal’s history, he also told us about what life is like for most Portuguese. The weather wasn’t great for our trip - rainy, foggy - but Alex helped us make the best of it. We highly recommend this tour!
