We were slightly hesitant to book this tour as it would consume our entire FIRST day in Lisbon after traveling but it was the only day available during our stay and I am so glad we decided to just do it. Our tour guide was Filipa and I seriously could not recommend her more. My fantastic interaction with her came before we even started the tour and i had to change my pick up location - not a problem, she made the appropriate adjustments and we were good to go. Everything we did was a bit delayed due to the taxi strike which slowed down all of the traffic in Lisbon but Filipa did her best to keep us entertained with history and other stories. Regardless of the unavoidable traffic issues Filipa still had us to our first destination before it got too crowded - and since our tickets to Pena Palace were included, we got to skip the ticket line. Pena Palace was amazing and I could have spent an entire day in the gardens but Filipa was very informational about how much time we had and what we could reasonably see and still get on with the tour - and she was very accurate. Next we stopped at Quinta da Regaleira which was my favorite part of the site seeing - again, Filipa walked us through the best way to walk through the grounds to see everything in a timely matter and have us all meet up again for lunch. Her lunch recommendations were TOP notch Get the octopus at Adega das Caves... AND get the pillow pastries!. Cascais and Cabo da Roca were beautiful but I did enjoy the first part of the day more due to content, nothing to do with the tour. We did eat ice cream and stick our feet in the water in Cascais but were a bit rushed due to our timing issues. In all, I'd recommend this tour as highly as possible - it's a great day and worth the price.

Great day out visiting Sintra. Highlight for me was Quinta da Regaleira with its unusual architecture and mystical symbolism. Pena Park was vast so we opted to visit the inside castle instead and spend time in the smaller gardens at Quinta da Regaleira. Andre's recommendations were on point as he got us to Pena Palace right before it got incredibly busy and guided us to make the most of our time in each attraction. Enjoyed our stop at Cabo da Roca and a lovely gelato in Cascais. Great value as well as most entry fees are included in the price. Small company who love their country and offer a great experience. Warmly recommended.

Excellent tour. André was on time for pick up. More importantly, he is very fluent in English, knows his material, and provided us with an excellent day. The tour is just right in terms of content. Not too much, and time to enjoy each site. We enjoyed André and the other 2 couples. André is personable and provides interesting insights into the life and culture of Portugal. Well worth the day.

Phillipa was a wonderful tour guide and sensitive to our needs. We appreciated being picked up at our hotel. Sintra was amazing but too little time was left in Casci. Suggest they skip the traffic snarled stop at Casa Roca.

I really enjoyed and would highly recommend this tour. Pena Palace was stunning, Sintra lovely and Cabo da Roca beautiful. Tour operator Andre was an excellent guide.
My only negative comment would be that to save time on the day the tour operator should include an option for entry to Pena Palace when booking.

Our tour was great. We got to see some very unique attractions outside of Lisbon. Our tour guide was very professional and sweet. And this tour includes entrance ticket to most places so it is definitely worth the price. The one thing I would improve about this tour is for the tour guide should give more history about the places that we visit. Since our tour guide did not enter the historical places with us we didn't get to learn much about the history of those places.

We enjoyed the ease of a small group traveling via van with a guide who was well versed in the history and significance of the sights. Arriving early enough to avoid the main crowds was wise. We enjoyed the many plantings(gardens) as well as the buildings.
