Of course in Sintra one must visit Pena & other palaces, and Quinta de Regaleira. But there are so many MORE gems that are hidden as well. This tour is a must to actually learn about traditional life in Portugal (which the normal tourist sites do not show at all). And Filipe was a fantastic tour guide. He is very knowledgeable and very fun. He obviously loves his country as well. If all you want to learn is who built a chair in a palace, this is not the tour for you - stick with the run-of-the-mill palace tours. But if you want to know what life was like in the small village, call Filipe. You won’t be disappointed.
We were surprised to have basically a private tour tailored to our needs! It was a wonderful experience where we learned a lot about the region, had great conversations, and also time to ourselves to explore. The highlight was the palace at Queluz! We practically had it to ourselves! I’d definitely recommend this tour to anyone and will be in contact to organize my next tour when I’m in Portugal!
The whole tour is amazing, full of experience. There is plenty of time for enjoying and exploring at each stop of the tour. Tania is a great guide, she was so nice and understanding, easy to communicate. She gave as all the info we needed about the historical places and the whole area. Also she was full of fun facts and great stories about Portuguese history. I fully reccomend it!
Very much enjoyed our day with Miguel. He was very personable and informative. He allowed us to spend time in places that were of interest to us without rushing us or imposing his desires on us. It made this tour so much more enjoyable than with a whole crowd of tourists who all had to do the same things.
the entire trip was flawless and eduardo was a perfect guide. we experienced everything described and more and we learned so much about this beautiful country’s history and specifically sintra.
