This is a great tour as it concentrates on Sintra rather than trying to fit more into the day and making it rushed. Pickup and drop off was straight forward. Our guide Mathew was excellent and extremely knowledgeable on the area and history. He knew all the short cuts to improve our experience at the palaces. We had lunch at one of his recommended tapas bars Tascantiga which was excellent. Would highly recommend this tour.

This is the perfect way to see all of the highlights of Sintra without all of the hassles. Pick up time not too early but still early enough to get to Pena Palace well before the crowds and see it a leisurely pace. That leaves plenty of time to see the Quinta de Regaleira, have lunch/wander around Sintra and then see Montserrat Palace. Matthieu was an excellent guide who was incredibly knowledgeable about all things Sintra and Portugal. Can't recommend this tour highly enough

This was a great day out with a really informative guide. However there is ALOT of walking both up hill & down & on cobbles. I was with my mother who struggled but so did I, & there were elderly people & obese people on the tour plus it was very hot. So that was tough. However the places we visited, the information & the general tone of the visit was really fabulous & we’re really glad we went.
