We fully enjoyed our day with Gustavo. He was a great host and he was very knowledgeable about the sights we saw. We are staying in Lisbon and it’s very easy to get to Sintra by train, but going with a trained guide makes the visit much more efficient and allows you to see sights that you would probably miss on your own. This is a great tour and we fully recommend it.

I can’t express In words how amazing Paolo our guide is. He added flavor and so much valuable inputs and brought it to life, you could feel how much he likes culture and people. The trip visits the 3 best palaces in Sintra and strangely only few tours do that, I think all three are a must see and it’s very tricky to finish all of them in one day, we tried to plan it ourselves but luckily we ended up taking this trip and it was SO WISE, there is 0 change we would have managed that on our own, since Paulo knew exactly WHEN to take us and was so efficient in time that we managed to visit all of them and had enough time in each, we literally arrived just a few minutes before everybody else to each place, and that saved hours. But other than the arrangement of the trip it was really interesting to learn about the history and the story behind each place, otherwise it’s just a nice visit in pretty and instagramable locations.. with the guide it’s way beyond, and I usually hate “planned trips”

Gus was a FANTASTIC tour guide! He explained everything in detail and kept the tour interesting. He answered all of our questions and even gave us recommendations for the next part of our trip! Highly recommended if you want to go to Sintra and get a highlight of the town.
