The tour had everything a good tour needs: a great guide and very beautiful and breathtaking viewpoints and sights. Mario our guide was awesome. He knew Sintra and its beauty like the back of his hand. With the jeep we got to places that couldn't be reached by bus or car. We drove remote dirt roads that were fun for more. Mario was always friendly and answered our questions as well as possible and was able to tell us something about all the sights. He brought us closer to the sights and Sintra and gave us an understanding of the Portuguese culture. Unfortunately we couldn't visit Cascais that day because of the "Iron Man" taking place there, but as a compensation he showed us another wonderful place with an impressive view. In summary, it can be said that the tour is recommended and worth every penny. Driving the jeep over the hills and steep trails is an experience in itself and all of this is rounded off with the rest of the tour. @Mario: Thank you for the incredible memory and tour
