The visit was excellent and specially the tour guide Mathieu was amazing. He was always there to answer any question about Sintra or any other things related to Portugal and Lisbon, from history to its gastronomy. He even recommended a restaurant in Sintra that was one of the best meals during our stay in Portugal. Highly recommended experience.

Jaoa was a very knowledgeable, engaging, funny and warm professional. I didn’t realize that we were to meet 30 mins before the trip started, but they effortlessly made sure the logistics worked out so that I was able to join. The sights (architecture, flora and fauna) and history were wonderful to take in and a traditional Portuguese lunch together was a delightful experience.
