Elisabete is so very knowledgeable that spending the entire day with her filled us with information about Sintra, local history, things to do in Lisbon, etc. She was eager to answer our questions and was also curious about how things are in the US. Our day was carefully planned to maximize our use of time and allow us to have a leisurely lunch in town. Though we are not morning people, we talked just today (4 weeks after this visit) about how it was so worth it to have gotten on the road at 8:30. We arrived at Pena Palace when the gates opened, had a leisurely visit and when we left, saw the ENORMOUS line of people waiting to get in because they'd arrived and hour or 2 later than we had. While we had lunch, she went and got our tickets for the afternoon visit, allowing us, again, to walk right in. Finally, in addition to being knowledgeable and well-organized, Elisabete was a great pleasure to be with. Ask for her by name and we guarantee you'll have a great day.
Alex was stellar! He arrived at the agreed upon time happy & enthusiastic. We arrived at the Pena Palace with minimal queue. He was very knowledgeable and was able to share local insights. He facilitated our ticket purchase & walked with us through the palace pointing out facts & interesting details. When we left the palace the lines were so long reinforcing that taking Alex’s advice was the right choice. We went to Monserratte, which was wonderful & again even more re insight via Alex. Alex was so professional & courteous making sure we had what we needed to have a successful day. I would highly recommend him to anyone considering visiting Sintra.
My husband and I thoroughly enjoyed our day trip to Sintra from Lisbon. Our guide, Alex, was terrific! He was punctual, polite, and easy to talk to. In addition to telling us about Portugal’s history, he also told us about what life is like for most Portuguese. The weather wasn’t great for our trip - rainy, foggy - but Alex helped us make the best of it. We highly recommend this tour!
Before the tour, Maria at Top Ten Tours was in touch to discuss what we wanted to do and very helpful with suggestions. On the day, Alex our guide was punctual, friendly and well informed. He gave us great tips and helped us to make the most of our time, including making restaurant bookings and taking us to a viewpoint.
Wonderful experience! Alex was a great guide, personable, knowledgeable and very helpful. We had a truly.m
