Half-Day Sintra Tour from Lisbon with Transfers Reviewed by Kristine, 10/18/2016

Best guided tour ever for 8 ladies from Stockholm!

Our guide Joao made our day really by showing his enormous knowledge in the history of the Pena Palace. And in a humorous way! Due to heavy traffic he changed from plan A to plan B by starting the tour with Cascais and finishing with the Pena Palace, a very good decision. We had lunch in A Adega, a most charming place. A nice welcome from the chef and we were served a delicious tapas menue.

Sintra - Cascais Estoril - Full Day Tour Reviewed by Jennifer, 10/04/2016

Amazing day trip jampacked with a lot of fun and things to do and see

I am so glad I booked this day trip. I was picked up on time and the ride to Sintra was very comfortable. Our guide named Carlos was very funny and also very informative. Any questions we had for him he was able to help us. He is also very knowledgeable in a lot of Portugal's history. I totally recommend this day trip for anyone. It is very affordable and very rewarding. You really get to see a lot of the beautiful sites along the way. My favorite stop was spiraled Gardens. The best part about this trip was our amazing guide and also the fact that the tour groups are very small. It really feels personalized and you don't waste time by being in a large group.
