What people are saying about Sintra District

We had an amazing day on our 8 hour, private tour of Sintra and Cascais with our chauffeur/guide Alex. He was so lovely; a professional but friendly, extremely knowledgeable and charming companion. My husband is disabled with very poor mobility and Alex modified our tour in order to avoid any activity that required walking any great distance. When we did stop at the National Palace at Sintra and our (very enjoyable) port tasting in the centre, he even pushed him in his wheelchair. We cannot thank Alex enough for hostin us on such a wonderful day's activity, everything was absolutely perfect and we cannot recommend Alex, Wondervan and Get Your Guide (through whom we booked) enough. We will treasure always the memories we made and the knowlege we gained from Alex. Thank you so very much.

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.

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!
