Excellent private tour to Sintra! Highly recommend. Francisco was excellent at planning out the trip to avoid the crowds as much as possible so we could maximize our day. He gave honest feedback on what was really worth seeing when I only had one day in Sintra. He was also knowledgable about everything we saw (and with verified info, not just making things up like I could hear other tour guides doing) and his genuine interest came through over the whole day. He was courteous, generous, respectful, and helpful. Ask for Francisco!
Our guide is friendly and very knowledgeable about the Portuguese history. His driving is steady. The car is clean and spacious. The lunch he recommends is in a very traditional village restaurant. He picked us up at 09.00 and dropped us at our hotel at around 17.30. Overall, a great experience and it’s worth the money to have your own driver/ guide, so that you know that you are in safe hands and you can go to places according to your own pace.
Our guide Goncalo is the best guide we ever had. We all have a great time. He was so polite and speaks very good English. Goncelo really made this trip memorable. His commentary throughout our tour was humorous and entertaining. He was so knowledgeable about every area we passed through. Goncelo, Thank you so much for everything. We were so lucky to have you as our guide.
We had an amazing trip to Sintra with Gonzalo. He was on time, very accommodating to the changes in itinerary we needed, and was very informative about local history and culture. We enjoyed the trip immensely and would recommend him to anyone. We went to Quinta de Regeleira, the Moorish castle and Cabo de Roca, Cascais. Skipped Pena palace because it was rainy.
Our guide Francisco was just amazing! He has obviously done this tour many times and it shows - from organizing our day to avoid long lines, to the information he shared. The day was stress free and flew by because he was so pleasant and charismatic. Absolutely would recommend :)
