Augusto met us promptly and for the rest of the day was just a wonderful guide. It was a lot to see so we’re glad we did a tour (we’re not usually tour people) -Augusto made it totally worthwhile. Information was much more than just historical; pace was good and a positive personality all made for a great day. “You nailed it” Augusto (be sure to give out business cards)!!

This was the most amazing tour I had during my time in Portugal. The itinerary was perfect! We arrived early at Peña Palace just ahead of the crowds. We were also able to visit Monserrate Palace and Quinta da Regaleira, which most tours that I looked at before booking this don’t offer. Matthew was an awesome tour guide and walked us through the history of Sintra in such an insightful and delightful way. He also recommended an amazing restaurant and bakery in Sintra for our independent time for lunch (over 2 hours! Way longer than I’ve had on other tours) When I return to Portugal, I plan to take my sister on this exact tour! So I recommend it without a doubt.

We did the full day tour with Augusto. We looked at other tours, but we wanted the full day in Sintra and it did not disappoint! We started a Pena Palace with a full tour of the history and things we would have never known about without Augusto's eye for detail. We then went to the Quinta da Regaleira, where Augusto's stories and attention to detail gave us the history of the Freemasons and ties to the Knights Templar. We had free time in the city where we were able to eat lunch and taste the Sintra pastries. We ended our day at Monseratte Palace, where again Augusto gave us the history and pointed out all the amazing details that went into this palace. We had a wonderful day and tour! I would recommend this for anyone that really wants to see all that Sintra has to offer. Augusto was a great guide who told stories and gave details throughout the day. Augusto was a very safe driver to Sintra and told us the history of Portugal during the drive. Be prepared for a lot of walking!
