We had a great time in Sintra and highly recommend this tour. The group is the right size, going in a van is the only way you'll see multiple palaces in a single day, and the guide was friendly and knowledgeable. Be prepared to walk 7-8 miles up and down many hills! It's worth it.

Such a great tour! We were with Gustav and he was really knowledgable about the places we went to. He gave really good recommendations for things to do and places to eat during our free time as well. Though it was a rainy day, the weather improved throughout the day.

I cannot imagine a better experience touring Sintra. The whole day is well thought out. Our tour guide Jorge was phenomenal!!! He did a great job guiding us through the sites, and was very knowledgeable. He also had a great sense of humor which definitely pulled the tour group together. I cannot recommend this tour more highly.
