We had a great day on this tour! Our guide Paulo was very knowledgeable and helpful. We didn’t have to wait in lines and learned so much at every stop. This was definitely the way to experience Sintra. I highly recommend this tour! Be prepared to walk a lot of hills. Comfortable shoes are a must!

A great trip and outstanding guide. This company provide class act tours. I think what I most like about the company are the small tours! And with 8 to 12 people you can not beat the camaraderie that develops especially during a long day. I recommend. And the price is right!

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.
