the guide was very friendly and professional. the arrangements of the trip was quite good. we went to the different places with sufficient time to enjoy. i recommended this company to explore Sintra. one thing that you will have to be careful: if you're the only one to book one trip, it might be cancelled or merged into another trip.

Fantastic time rich with history. Great way to Sintra quickly but effectively! Our guide - who was fantastic - gave us the option to spend the last part of the day going to Pena Palace or seeing some incredible sights. We chose the latter and were not disappointed!

Diogo was an incredible guide, and the tour was fantastic. Both palaces we visited were gorgeous, and the lunch provided was delicious and came with so much food. I could not recommend this tour enough!

Excellent and so much fun! We loved this tour and the tour guid Francisco was friendly and very knowledgeable. We will book again for sure! Thanks Francisco!

Pleasant and enthusiastic tour guide, definitely recommended!
