I cannot imagine a better experience touring Sintra. The whole day is well thought out. Our tour guide Jorge was phenomenal!!! He did a great job guiding us through the sites, and was very knowledgeable. He also had a great sense of humor which definitely pulled the tour group together. I cannot recommend this tour more highly.

Despite a very wet start to the day, we thoroughly enjoyed our day trip. Gustavo took great care of us and made sure we got to see all the sights we'd signed up for, and still have time to relax a while in Sintra, itself. Highly recommend this day trip.

We had an excellent day in Sintra with Gustavo. His timing was impeccable and his knowledge about Portugal was thorough. His passion about Portugal was clearly evident. Highly recommended!

All 3 visits were amazing. I know we had to cover a lot of ground but we were a bit rushed which took away from the whole experience. But overall, the sites we saw were amazing.

The visit to Sintra was excellent. Our guide did a good job in explaining the history and the the significance of Sintra.
