A great small tour of 8 people and I loved it! Luis was our guide, and we got to Peña Palace quick, on time, and safely. Sintra is truly magical! The hotel pick up was a very nice bonus. Luis was very knowledgeable on the history of Portugal and Sintra. Amazing tour. Highly recommend!

The trip was very well organised. We went to Pena Palace early in the morning, then to Sintra town (we had 1h of a free time), after that we went to Cabo da Roca and Cascais. Luis, our guide had a great knowledge of history and everything in general & was also funny, so the whole day was very pleasant experience. I wish we could have more time in Cascais. I recommend this trip to everyone.

Luis was an really knowledgeable host with a vast amount of local and International history knowledge, he was also very considerate and really fun. The trip was amazing and the highlight was the Pena Palace and the Initiation Well both in Sintra. We then travelled to Cabo da Roca which is the most which is the westernmost point in Europe and saw a lighthouse and the beautiful cliffs looking out to the Atlantic Ocean to America. The last stop was to the seaside town of Cascais which is located at on the Portuguese Riviera. We drove the scenic route back to Lisbon which was super relaxing. Luis really made the trip, he told us all about the history of all the places we visited and even shared his personal travel and adventure stories which was super interesting.
