Excellent guide and lovely lunch in the small village. Despite heavy rain our guide and driver made sure we had an enjoyable day. I would recommend this tour for those who are less able to walk as the coach makes seeing Sintra so much easier as there are some very steep hills.

Excellent tour! The guide realy knew about history! I recommand this for adult, not children. We had taken with the lunch included but it is not worth it. It is a small buffet in a hotel and food wasn't that good.

I highly recommend this tour as it has comprehensive content .But above all, the service company was outstanding. In spite of some unforeseen delays (accident on highway) during hotel pick up, Jorge went out of his way to accommodate few of us that were affected. Very impressed with customer service

A good way to see the Pena Palace. Rather than have a lunch there was plenty of time to visit the National Palace during the break in Sintra. The return along the coast is an opportunity to see the coastline and the resorts. Our guide was very informative and helpful.

This tour of Sintra was fantastic - our tour guide was very informative and the whole tour ran very smoothly. We were able to explore the incredible Pena National Palace at a leisurely pace and then had a very nice lunch and free time in Sintra village. The weather in Sintra was a little misty and chilly so be prepared and dress accordingly. The drive back to Lisbon is quite lengthy however the sights in Cascais are a joy to behold and pass the time quickly. I would highly recommend this tour!

I never take tours but this time I took a risk and I was not disappointed at all. Guide provided explanations in different languages English, Spanish, Portuguese, German, food was good and in most of the places there was enough time to go around. Probably Cabo Roca would require additional 30 minutes to enjoy more the view and the place.

Ana was great! Very informative tour, plenty of time to do your own exploring as well. Would recommend!

My wife and I were very satisfied with this all-day tour. Pickup from the hotel Sheraton Lisboa was prompt although the ultimate departure time was later than scheduled. The hotel pickup is just transportation to the bus station which is really just a collection of buses in a pleasant tree-lined street not far from the Sheraton. We did finally leave but there was an accident causing traffic backup so we were rather late arriving at the palace, obviously not the fault of the tour. This tour visited the main sites you want to see, Sintra, Pena Palace, Cascais, Cabo de Roca. The tour guide was quite good and did her best to accommodate everyone. We spent about 2 hours in the town of Sintra, which is where the included lunch is served. My wife and I chose not to do the included lunch and I was very happy for that! There are tons of little pastry shops and restaurants where you can get sandwiches and other food very reasonably, and spend more time exploring. The one complaint I have is that we didn't have time to explore the gardens around Pena Palace, which are supposed to be amazing. Other than that, highly recommended! Note that this tour was provided by the Gray Line service which does a bunch of bus tours and hop-on/hop-off bus services. We used Gray Line for 2 hop-on/hop-off city tours where we just stayed on the bus for the full circuit and that worked well. However, I DO NOT recommend using hop-on/hop-off for the longer trips e.g. to Cascais. My poor wife waited an hour and 45 minutes for the bus to return on the Cascais line. The problem is that the hop-on/hop-off buses do not stick to a schedule so you have no idea when they are coming. However, they're fine if you stay on for the shorter circuits, and the guided day-trip not a hop-on/hop-off was great. I also highly recommend Uber, outstanding service in and around Lisbon all week.

This trip was very exhilarating. The places visitied - Sintra, Cascais and Cabo de Roco - were absolutely delightful. Our guide explained everything very clearly and patiently clarified questions asked. The places are absolutely picturesque!

We are glad we selected this extensive tour of Sintra and neighboring beach areas, including lunch. We booked it in advance from our computer in the U.S. and the contact information was all very clear and happened without any problems, with pick-up and drop-off at our hotel. We enjoyed the free time we had as well as the tour information from the guide. It was a day well-spent and a good value.

Sintra was one of the highlights of our Lisbon vacation. Pena Palace is amazing, and the town is quaint and lovely. This was an excellent tour! Highly recommended!

Pena palace is a must-do in Lisbon. Tour takes the hassle out the multiple forms of transport neccesaary to get there -and adds some other good sights. Would have liked more time at the palace and less on some of the other stops.

We really enjoyed the trip to Sintra. The palace is beautiful, and it was only a short trip from Lisbon. We really enjoyed our guide. I would recommend that Sintra be included in everyone's trip to Lisbon!
