What People Are Saying About Cascais

Worth the trip and tour with your transportation taken care of.

Tour was well arranged and planned by our tour guide, Maria. However, if u planned to spend more time at the Pena Palace/ Castle, u should consider having a tour specific for this since the castle is a big place and takes time to explore, 1-2 hours might not be sufficient to visit the entire place.

Wonderful experience, competent and friendly guide!

We were very happy with this choice. Mathieu, our guide was very gentleman, knowledgeable, maintained a good pace and made our tour extremely enjoyable. Well worth it!

Perfect tour, beautiful sights, lovely service

We went on the tour last week and we couldn't be happier we picked that company and that tour! We saw beautiful Portugese landscapes, palaces & castles. We very much enjoyed the organised part of the tour, just as well as the free time we got to wander around, do some shopping, take pictures and try wonderful Portugese pastries. The lunch in Sintra was not only lovely but also at reasonable price. Our guide, Daniel, was very friendly, down to earth guy who made us feel very welcome and the atmosphere was great throughout the whole day. Would recommend it to anyone. Thank you for the lovely tour and best of luck to the lovely team! :)

Sintra Fairytale Castles Full-Day Tour from Lisbon Reviewed by Ewelina, 12/08/2016

The tour was great, and Rui was fabulous!

I loved the tour with Rui. Rui is a wonderful professional guide, and at the same time very easy going and fun to be with. There were many highlights in the tour, a very beautiful area, but the best part for me was an amazing Fish restaurant that Rui brought us to, which was super yummy. Rui made everything to make us happy during the tour, and he succeeded! :)

Lisbon: Arrábida Natural Park and Sesimbra Day Trip Reviewed by a GetYourGuide Customer, 12/08/2016

Memorable intimate tour of Sintra & Lisbon!

My husband and I booked this trip to explore Sintra and we were thoroughly surprised on how intimate and memorable it was! Carlos, our tour guide, was knowledgeable, friendly, and humorous. With a small group, it was fun getting to know the other tourists on our trip and getting to experience it with some fun people. Carlos also had great insight to the foods and delicious eats (which I truly appreciate and love) which made for a great lunch break with unforgettable roasted lamb and potatoes and a dessert to dream about for days to follow. Seriously recommend booking with Carlos, you'll have a wonderful time.
