This is one of the best tours we have been on. We were picked up from our location, by Miguel, our guide for the day. He was friendly and personable but also professional. We were with others, who made up our small, friendly group. We had plenty of time to visit the sites and felt relaxed. The tour was interesting and we had fun. Miguel gave us lots of historic information, as well as practical tips and information about our locations. He did an awesome job! Thank you, Miguel!

Nunu was an exceptional guide. He was very thorough in answering all of our questions. We greatly enjoyed his company. He kindly picked us up from our Air bnb. The weather was very uncooperative (raining, wind) that day. Surprisingly, even after getting drenched during this tour, Nunu was the perfect guide!

Given that as far as I'm concerned going to Sintra and not being able to visit the Palacio da Pena or the Quinta da Regaleira doesn't make sense, the rest of the tour is really incredible The coast is fantastic, every stop is incredible and our guide Jorge is the added value. Very knowledgeable, very nice and kind. I give one star less because Sintra has disappointed me, I think it is only right to warn visitors when such an important attraction is not accessible. We had chosen Sintra solely for the Palacio da Pena!
