Beauty in Sintra

Sintra is gorgeous and should not be missed!! Having a private driver and not having to stand in line with crowds made the whole experience so much better. We could just focus on all the beautiful surroundings, artistry, and each other instead of worrying about transport, lines, or parking. I’d give it a five star ⭐️ but our guide was not well versed at all on the history, he was just a driver and we could here all the other guides providing interesting tidbits and history about the castle, etc. We have had private guides before so that was what we were expecting. Our driver was nice and gave suggestions for lunch and coffee but it would have been nice to learn more about the places we visited.

Tri-lingual understanding tour guide!

Tour guide Jose ... I cannot recommend enough. He spoke fluent Portugese, Spanish, AND English, constantly switching back and forth, throughout all 10+ hours of the tour. We arranged for a slightly earlier pickup time to view Pena Palace, and thank goodness we did! By the time we left, it was packed! He gladly took pictures for us and even instructed us to lower our masks for specific photo opportunities! We got to see the Moorish castle from afar, and did a little bit of shopping and stopped at a cafe in the village. We also visited the grounds of Quinta da Regaleira, but did not have time to see the interior due to personal time constraints (note to everyone: have them buy your tickets in advance, or buy them on your phone the day of and download your tickets for use...you save a lot of queuing time!). We then visited the "Apple Beach" town, had a delightful lunch, and walked along the beach for a few minutes. And then...Cabo da Roca. Breathtaking! On our return, we traveled down the coastline for a much needed break as we took in all of the sights! We never felt rushed (well, except for my father-in-law, but that's another story...), but our tour guide understood what we wanted to get out of the tour and we gave him our blessing for HIM to be the leader. The tour is missing a star only because of how to communicate with the actual business itself. Viator messaging, calling, voicemail, and Facebook messenger were not effective...the easiest way is to message this company through WhatsApp for a more instant response. However, this took days to figure out and confirm minute details of the tour. Nevertheless, I highly recommend this tour!

Fitting in as much of SIntra as possible in 1 day by a private tour
Colin

Great guide Teresa. Very full 10 hour day visiting Castle gardens, Pena Palace, Regaleira, Monserate, Cabo and the coast road. Teresa managed to help us miss many of the queues, but sights are very busy and if repeating we would start at 8 or 8.30am to minimise queuing within second main destination. (Queues were not for tickets, but for entry to buildings / prime sights within the Pena Palace and Regaleira) Overall we walked about 10km as all of the sights are large. We fitted in a snack lunch in Sintra town, and a cup of tea at Monserate, but at our request no time was spent shopping.

Quite nice

Sintra was magical but I didn’t get to visit the three places that I had wanted to see and I feel my driver should have guided me a little better on time. Instead we wasted a lot of time eating and walking around town which was fun and appreciated but could have been curtailed in order to get to the third place I wanted to see. Having said all that our driver was friendly and accommodating

Dear guest. We regret your experience with us was not as rewarding we all wished. In no way was this because of you and we do apologize for getting less than you expected from our tour. Here for you, Manuel

Wonderful tour of Sintra

I am so glad we booked this tour. Jose was a wonderful driver/guide. He was extremely knowledgeable, and friendly. We felt like family when the tour ended. We enjoyed every minute - the palaces, a sweet treat in Sintra, the views, lunch, and the history. This is an all day excursion, and it is just you and your group. No lines - no hassle - hotel pickup and return - it could not have been better. Thank you, Jose!
