This Tour were excellent! We were lucky to have such a knowledgeable guide that explained in rich details history of the place and Portugal in general. We couldn't get to Palacio de Pena because of the risk of fires that Portugal was having but instead the guide made the best of our trip and took us to see 2 wonderful beaches in Sintra also we saw Quinta da Regaleta and he took us for lunch in a great local restaurante (Toca do Julio). We also went to Cascais and Estoril which was great ! Thank you Rodrigo for such a great tour ! You are the best !

Ruben did a wonderful job and the daylong tour of sintra and the area. He was very knowledgeable and Enthusiastic. He took us to areas that we asked specifically to go to and explained the history and put everything into context for us. He selected an excellent local restaurant for us to have a delicious meal. It was my favorite day and our Portuguese holiday

Luis was amazing! He knew the hidden gems and how to see them and when to see them. He was flexible with my vision and needs and not just sticking to a clock and agenda. The logistics were made so simple with pickup, drop off, payments. I could not have asked for anything more. Fantastic! Highly recommend it. Unbelievable!
