Full description
Discover Sintra, known for its many 19th-century Romantic architectural monuments, which has resulted in its classification as a UNESCO World Heritage Site.

We had a great time with our guide Rui. He gave us the choice of what we wanted to do and see. We got to see glimpses of the most important places around Lisbon, most notably Sintra, Cabo da Roca and Cascais. Even though 4 hours is not a lot of time to visit these beautiful places, Rui did his best to make the most of the time. We drove around in a super nice Mercedes, which was quite comfortable. We were a group of 3 and we all agreed that this was one of the best tours we've done so far. It was such a joy hearing about the history and stories from a local Lisbon guide and we learned a lot about what it's like living in Portugal as well. Rui asked us questions and got to know us, so we had some great conversations. This half-day tour is great if you don't have much time and want to check out the most famous sights to come back and get a closer look later. Our favourite places were Cascais and Cabo da Roca - we will definitely go back there! Thanks Rui for the great tour!

The guide Luis Sequeira was extremely friendly and of impeccable knowledge. We were very lucky to have you as our guide! The opportunity to meet Sintra, Cascais and even Lisbon was beyond our expectations. We visited the places with precious tips, accurate information and especially the passion that Luis transmits to us in Portugal.
