This was the perfect, relaxed tour of the Sintra area countryside. The tour operators knew the small and hidden jewels of the area and took us to unknown locations. They prepared a nice lunch to have in a village on a hill with a lovely view. I would recommend this tour to anyone wanting a low key tour of countryside Portugal.

We were looking for a nature experience, thanks to this tour and our guide Nelson we found it. A day spent immersed in nature in search of unique and unpopular views. Kindness, friendliness and competence are characteristics that distinguished Nelson and our experience.

Tomas was the best tour guide. He was knowledgeable, fun, and quickly adapted the tour quickly when bad weather hit. We would do the same tour again in a second. Our group had so much fun!

The driver Bruno was fabulous funny and so knowledgeableth about the places he took us to.

Very nice experience. Our guide was exceptional. Thank you
