Really cool tour that covered lots of ground. In hindsight, this tour might actually try to put too much into one day. We spent so much time looking for parking at several locations that lunch was cut short and we didn’t have any free time to explore Sintra. That wasn’t our guide’s fault, the whole area is just extremely overcrowded with tourists.

Visiting Sintra was a wonderful experience despite not being able to view the Quinta nor the Monserrate Palace due to the risk of wild fires. Our guide, Paolo, was quick to find other activities for our group and we still managed to have an amazing time visiting the coast of Portugal.

Highly recommend this tour! Agusto was a great guide who had a wealth of knowledge to share at all 3 sites. We also had free time to explore each one. I would recommend this tour to anyone who's looking to get the most out of a day trip to Sintra.
