Very good organization, absolutely punctual pickup at the hotel. The driver Sonja and the German speaking tour guide Thomas were just awesome. Thomas explained an incredible amount to us about the Pena Palace, we visited beautiful Sintra, the westernmost point of Europe and still had time for a stroll with a very tasty lunch in Cascais (thanks to a tip from Thomas) and were still on the beach. All in all, an unforgettable excursion that is definitely to be recommended

If you come to Sintra, you should go with LAS tours! Sonia and Luis were so incredibly wonderful with their recommendations and available support whenever we got a little lost. They were so patient and kind too! They made the best suggestions for us and we had the best day driving the little car around ⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️ highly recommended!!!

The trip in German was well organized and very informative. Our guide Maria was very careful and gave good tips, everything was included according to the program. In addition, she surprised us with a beach stay on the Atlantic.

We had a great day in Sintra on a beautiful beach in west town on mainland Europe and in Cascais. A beautiful place by the sea. We had a knowledgeable friendly tour guide. This excursion is highly recommended to everyone.

We really enjoyed this day of visit rich in landscapes and magnificent places.
