Erica was a great host, you can tell that she really enjoys sharing the history of Sintra with people, she is a wonderful storyteller too. It would have been helpful to have a quick brief about how the tour will start and end. And to have each stop in little quieter pockets away from traffic and noise. Other than this I highly recommend!!

This tour was fantastic! Our guide Isabella was very kind and told us details about Sintra we could never find in a guidebook. We had lots of fun and she answered all of our questions both in Spanish and English. Overall this was well worth the money and was an unexpected highlight of our trip!

I fell more in love with Sintra, María the guide was very kind and friendly, she explained everything in great detail and despite the fact that the tour ended at 6:30 p.m., she was not in any hurry and stayed with us until later than 7:00 p.m. that we see everything in detail, without a doubt I would repeat
