A day tour through some of the most beautiful places in Portugal accompanied by a local guide. The experience started with total openness and sympathy on the part of our guide who received us in the classic UMM convertible, providing a very particular perspective of the entire route. On the way we had blankets and water bottles available, as well as pleasant music and brief explanations about points of interest we passed. Both visits to Quinta da Regaleira and to Palácio da Pena were accompanied by clear and not too extensive explanations about some of the facts and interesting places in the areas. On the other hand, all the time spent in these places was spent calmly, with time to take advantage of individually and capture all the desired photographs. Finally, the finishing touches of traditional Sintra sweets and group snapshots, provided at the end of the trip, leave visual and taste memories for posterity.
It was a wonderful experience, we arrived at Portela de Sintra station by train where Nelson welcomed us with his vehicle and took us to the heart of Sintra giving us lots of information about it; we had lunch in a very nice restaurant with typical Portuguese dishes, then we went to different places with a breathtaking view of the ocean, we made a stop in Cabo de roca and then we headed to Cascais passing by the most beautiful beaches of the coast. We were perfectly at ease thanks to the sympathy of Nelson and our travel companions from different countries around the world, an experience that I recommend to everyone. Nelson also offered us a shot of a local wine, a typical Portuguese dessert and a snapshot of a Polaroid to keep as a souvenir.
The trip was really amazing, Mario was a great guide, very knowledgeable about the sites we visited on our way, nice and helpful with everything we needed. The ride was cool and adventurous, the hike itself was quite comfortable, not too difficult and the beach at the and was magnificent, definitely the highlight of my trip to Lisbon, highly recommend it!
Diogo was particularly well informed and a humorous guide. We spent a very enjoyable morning with him and leant a lot about SIntra, Easy-going personality and fun to be around. The open top jeep experience was also a novelty!
We had an amazing time with Joao. Amazing explanation of both places. We had an amazing lunch. Very nice guy. I would recommend this to anyone.
