A lot packed into the time available

Enjoyed our tour. Problems hearing what guide is saying when on fast roads due to road noise etc would suggest speaker at back of vehicle. The day is certainly busy and you may want to revisit some of the sites due to time restraints.
Pena Palace a must see.

Best tour I’ve ever taken!
, Mar 2020
Best decision we made was taking a small group tour to Sintra. Claudia was exceptional. She was personable, shared the history of the city and was very patient with all of us. We went to The palace, the park, Calais and the cliffs overlooking the ocean. Whole day was wonderful. I highly recommend this tour for all ages.

Sintra Day trip
, Mar 2020
Our group of six thoroughly enjoyed the Pena Palace and Quinta da Regaleira. The stop at Cabo da Roca was ok, although it was extremely windy, something you can't control. The stop at Cascais would probably have been nice in the summer time, but 40 minutes just gave us enough time to buy a gelato. No time to explore the town. Only comment is that we were in total a group of 8 and the van was extremely tight ( and we are average size people). Driver/Guide was very engaging.

That tour was the highlight of our trip. Our guide “John” Joao da Silva was amazing! He grew up in Sintra and is very knowledgeable about the history of Portugal. It was a very fun day!
