The tour overall was quite good, but I would've liked more time to explore Pena Palace and Cascais. Cascais is a beautiful town and 40 minutes isn't enough. The tour starts in Cascais (40 minutes) then proceeds to Boca de Inferno (15 minutes or so) then Cabo de Roca (20 minutes or so) before going to Sintra for lunch. There's around 90 minutes for lunch before the tour of Pena Palace which in total was around 2 hours. The tour guide was knowledgable and enthusiastic, the driver was also very friendly so no fault of theirs, but just a little more time to explore Pena and Cascais would've been awesome. I also recommend making the size of the groups smaller, 20+ is too many for places like Pena Palace.
Die Reise war super, ich hatte Problem mit der Zeitplan. Auf der Cabo da Roca haben wir zu wenig Zeit bekommen (25 Minuten) es hätte viel mehr wert gehabt und in Sintra haben wir zu viel Zeit verschwendet. Auf der andere Seite Sintra war bisschen enttäuschend wegen der Touristenmenge aber das ist leider immer so bei Welterbesehenswürdigkeiten...Ansonsten Reise ist wert, unsere Reiseführerin Alina hat sehr viel Mühe gegeben. Das grosse Reisebus war bequem und sauber, unsere Reiseorte Cascais, Boca da Inferno, Cabo da Roca, Sintra sehr interessant und unvergesslich, was wir da gesehen haben.
The guide Mr Leitacio was amazing, his knowledge of the place, its history and culture great. Although a local born and bred guy, his command and diction of English was v good. Very friendly, the tour also had a free tasting of pastries and a drink as part of the tour. Despite the storm, wind and rain, he went out of his way to guide and help us in best possible way. The tour of 1/2 day is essentially sufficient incl. collection of souvenirs if any. Lovely Cascais, superb roads along the Atlantic. Worth the money paid.
Hi, Im sorry Ive forgotten the name of the person who had come to pick us up. The only downfall of the trip was he came to pick us up half hour late and we were dripping sweat since it was summer. The driver/guide was very sweet, he took us to 3 places as we had requested and lent us enough time to spend at all 4 palaces. Took us to this great patisserie too! The ride also was very comfortable.
Absolutely amazing day. Couldn’t have chosen better. Our guide was wonderful. Knowledgeable about so many things to do with the sites & history. I got very lucky with the group I was with as everyone was very pleasant & easy going. Couldn’t fault it. Would definitely recommend & do it again.
