A show. The price is definitely worth the whole trip. Damian, who accompanied us throughout the tour, is super nice, super engaging. A note of merit for Junior the driver who is also exceptional on the streets of Sintra. Super recommended tour, both because you will discover everything there is to discover, and because you will skip all the queues and you won't have to worry about anything except getting to the meeting point in Lisbon
