Like Having Your Son Give You a Guided Tour!
Penny_C
, Mar 2020
I had heard that Sintra was a “ must see” but I failed to book my trip in advance of my arrival. I happily was able to find this tour and book it at almost the last minute. I totally forgot I booked a private tour but was thankful that I did! My guide Danilo was a very sweet young man who had great suggestions on what to see but he also let me customize my experience. This was important to me as I have some slight mobility issues (arthritic knees) and didn’t want to navigate many stairs. Danilo listened to my concerns and helped me have an enjoyable experience without compromising my health. We had lunch at a delightful out of the way place right on the beach and I tried Octopus for the first time. The whole experience was like having your son give you a guided tour! I’d give more stars if permitted! Take this tour, you won’t regret it.

A perfect day with a perfect guide!

A picture perfect day! Danilo picked us up promptly at our hotel and we proceeded to Sintra. Along the way, Danilo shared information about the region and asked us for our preferences -- in what we wanted to see, eat, and experience. Since we had not been to Portugal before, we suggested just following the original plan. (It's nice to have the flexibility to change things up if we had preferences.) Danilo is a nice young man who is very friendly and knowledgeable. In addition to taking us to the various (and spectacular) sites and providing us with interesting facts and stories, Danilo took us to a restaurant on the Grand Beach where he obviously is well known (and liked). We had an absolutely delicious lunch before heading out for the rest of the afternoon. I'm not going to provide detail about the sites that we saw because I'm sure you'd see the same sites on most any tour. Having an individualized and personized experience like we had made the trip special. Thank you Danilo! We highly recommend this tour!

This was a tour just for the two of us, which was perfect since I have some difficulty with walking, using a cane. Our wonderful guide Danilo was able to adjust places to go and where to park and how to get us where we needed to go to suit my needs. We saw all the things that were listed in the itinerary, which were very interesting. Pena Palace was delightfully colorful. One small town along the coast was not quite as we envisioned, because there were a lot of cranes and scaffolding that interfered with the view. Danilo was, as I said, very helpful but also had so much information that he shared that he made the tour extremely interesting and valuable, and gave us good insight into Portugal and its people.

Highlight of our trip in Portugal! 10 out of 10!

Our guide Danilo was simply outstanding in every way. In short, he was professional, punctual, knowledgeable, and extremely friendly. Since the start we felt comfortable with him. Danilo picked us up in our hotel just on time. We had booked this tour since in the description it said it was customizable since we wanted to customize our tour. We wanted to visit Monserrate palace, the Moorish castle and the Pena palace, which we did with no problem since Danilo planned the day very smoothly. He came inside the palaces with ous and guided us around which was very useful, since these places are huge. We had read that parking was a big issue in Sintra but since he knew all the best places to stop we really didn’t have a problem, he knows his area! We tried local pastry and for lunch had one of our best lunches in our trip just in a beach front restaurant with no crowd at all. During the trip, he ensured we were comfortable, shared his deep knowledge of each area and even some funny anecdotes of his personal travel experiences. We have been in many different tours and without hesitation this is the best private tour we have ever had with the best guide of all! Thanks Danilo!

This tour is simply amazing! Danilo our guide picked us up just in time at our hotel in Lisbon. A couple of minutes afterwards it felt like we knew Danilo long time ago since he created a friendly atmosphere right from the start. We started by walking through Sintra historic center before heading to the famous Piriquita to try the local pastry. We loved the famous Quejada! After visiting the center we saw lush gardens in Quinta da regaleira. Danilo showed us around the Palace and made sure we found the hidden iniciatic well. Besides Quinta da regaleira we saw the castle, stunning viewpoints, had lunch in an delicious Portuguese restaurant by the sea side and finished out the day by visiting the Pena Palace. Danilo showed us around the Pena Palace and made sure we saw everything we had to see! This full day tour is definitely worth it!

We can’t say enough good things about our tour with Danilo! We did an all day Sintra tour and it was the absolute highlight of our trip to Portugal. I thought an all day tour may be a bit much for us but Danilo tailored the tour perfectly. He was extremely knowledgeable of the sites yet kept everything fun and relaxed all day. He also took us to a great coffee and pastry shop and lunch at a beautiful seafood restaurant on the coast to break up the tour and it worked out perfect. Danilo felt like a part of our family by the time the tour was done for the day so we really can’t recommend it enough!

Enjoyed Sintra, but....

Danilo was very personable. Such a great, fun personality. However, I feel that he could have given us more of a tour and explained things a little more. We toured the castle on our own instead of him coming with us. We actually listened to another tour that was going on, because we had to tour ourselves while he selected a designated place to meet when the tour was over. Another place we went, he told us to get out of the car, while he stayed in the car. Lunch by the beach was amazing. Again, very nice young man, just wish we had been given more of a tour.

We booked this tour through Viator Customer Service as we did not have access to a laptop and we were in a rush to make the booking. So first of all, many thanks to Viator's great Customer Service for finding this tour. We wanted a private, customizable tour at a reasonable price. And they booked this tour for us. What a great find! As it turned out, we couldn't have picked a better tour. We were picked up by our guide, Tiago who was waiting for us at the entrance of our building as we got off the elevator. He was prompt, friendly, personable and a great communicator. Tiago took us to all the places that we wanted to see in Sintra: Quinta de Regalaira, National Palace, Pena Palace and the Moorish Castle. He also took us to a phenomenal seafood restaurant by the beach for lunch. The tour was great for the fact that Tiago drove us practically to the entrance of each site. The only walking we had to do was within the castles (which was plenty!). In addition, it was down pouring rain in the afternoon. So having Tiago drive us as close as possible to the entrances was a game changer! There is no way that we would have been able to see all the sites if we had been on our own. In addition to all the castles that we wanted to visit, Tiago also took us to the Cabo de Roca. Despite the bad weather, we had an awesome time touring Sintra with Tiago. His intimate knowledge of the place and passion for what he does shines through and definitely made a huge positive impact on our experience. We are actually considering returning to Lisbon so that we can book more tours with Picta Travel - can't say enough good things about this experience!
