We were a tour group of two for an all day excursion on February 17. Luis was our guide. Summary: Luis made Sintra and the three properties we visited come alive. We enjoy castles/estates and gardens, and did we get that. We visited Quinta da Regaleria, Monserrate, and Pena Palace in that order, along with lunch in Sintra The lack of crowds, fantastic weather that went from misty/cloudy to sunny, a tour guide gushing information and able to design our visit on the fly around our interests and good fitness level, resulted in what I call a scintillating spectacular day. There is no flat in these places and he was able to take us off the beaten path where we saw no other people in the three gardens. It was like we owned the place!

My boyfriend and I had a great day exploring Sintra with our wonderful guide Augusto. As the only guests booked on that day we had a private tour on what turned out to be a very sunny November day. Augusto was very knowledgeable and made the day informative and fun. Thank you!

This was the perfect Sintra tour (IMHO)! It’s the only tour I found that included the top 3 palaces on my wishlist. And Joao was a great guide - very knowledgeable and friendly. Also I felt very safe (he was a very good driver on the narrow mountain roads) and taken care of. Joao accompanied me through the palaces and great provided historical context and stories. But I also had time on my own to take pictures and explore on my own. Don’t hesitate to book this tour! (Side note: even with a guide there is still some uphill walking involved... )
