The tour overall was quite good, but I would've liked more time to explore Pena Palace and Cascais. Cascais is a beautiful town and 40 minutes isn't enough. The tour starts in Cascais (40 minutes) then proceeds to Boca de Inferno (15 minutes or so) then Cabo de Roca (20 minutes or so) before going to Sintra for lunch. There's around 90 minutes for lunch before the tour of Pena Palace which in total was around 2 hours. The tour guide was knowledgable and enthusiastic, the driver was also very friendly so no fault of theirs, but just a little more time to explore Pena and Cascais would've been awesome. I also recommend making the size of the groups smaller, 20+ is too many for places like Pena Palace.
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.
Absolutely amazing day. Couldn’t have chosen better. Our guide was wonderful. Knowledgeable about so many things to do with the sites & history. I got very lucky with the group I was with as everyone was very pleasant & easy going. Couldn’t fault it. Would definitely recommend & do it again.
Thank you for organizing an utterly perfect day! We had a ball. The guides - Rita, Carolina and Ricardo - were a dream team. They shared so much good information with us. We thoroughly enjoyed their company -- lots of shared laughs. It was truly a memorable experience. Warmly, Molly and crew
Rita was a wonderful driver and host for this tour thru various Sintra and Cascais sites. We were fortunate that the weather was very good as well. We left on time and had a full day of activities. Rita was also very knowledgeable about the history of the areas we visited.
