The trip was really good and would highly recommend the tour but for me, Miguel was an absolute gent and just an all around lovely bloke, never left a review for anything before but genuinely just strongly wanted to say if there are a few opinions for various tours, pick this one

Miguel provided a great tour of Sintra and Cascais with a short stop on the coast. He knew exactly the perfect time to leave Lisbon while avoiding lines to see the palace. My only suggestion is less time in the the town of Sintra while leaving more time in Cascais and the coast.

Our guide Migel was excellent. He arrived on time and was informative and very pleasant throughout. We had a small group of just six people okus our guide and we spoke English, French, German and Italian. Migel talked easily in all our languages and we all got on well. Sintra and Cascais are beautiful and really worth the trip, even though there were a lot of other tourists.
