Fantastic experience, very much worth it. We were picked up from our hotel promptly on time. Our tour guide was very easy to get along with, great sense of humour and very knowledgeable around the areas. In addition to this, also gave us great recommendations for coffee places, food places, dessert places - recommended this incredible Bolo do Caco & Steak sandwich which made my day. Also gave tips on where to go (beaches, etc.) to avoid the huge lines of traffic. The day was also structured cleverly which meant we could enjoy the beauty of each palace whilst there were not too many people there. Such a good experience, highly recommend doing this and have already recommended to some friends visiting. Thank you for making the visit to Portugal a great one!

This Tour were excellent! We were lucky to have such a knowledgeable guide that explained in rich details history of the place and Portugal in general. We couldn't get to Palacio de Pena because of the risk of fires that Portugal was having but instead the guide made the best of our trip and took us to see 2 wonderful beaches in Sintra also we saw Quinta da Regaleta and he took us for lunch in a great local restaurante (Toca do Julio). We also went to Cascais and Estoril which was great ! Thank you Rodrigo for such a great tour ! You are the best !
