Amazing service, accepted our itineray changes and also made good suggestions, we also ran out of time and he added at least 1 hour and a half extra so we can complete our full ToDo list. Very puntual and educated, he has a lot of knowledge about Portugal's history and monuments.

Our guide Tiago was great. He had a lot of historical knowledge and was excited to share it with us. And he let us customize the tour. The one thing to keep in mind is the tour doesn't include the entrance fee into Sintra. Buy them before you go to not wait inline. You can do that at the Sintra website.

Our driver, Daniel, picked us up at our AirB&B on time in a comfortable, clean minivan. We wanted to end the day in Sintra rather than return to Lisbon so he organized the trip to fit our needs. Daniel took us to the sights we chose to visit and gave us insightful information about each sight. We were taken to a wonderful local restaurant that we wouldn't have know about other wise. I felt well taken care of and highly recommend this tour.
