If I had to describe this tour with one serious word: Wonderful. Thanks to this beautiful experience I have been able to discover Lisbon in the best possible way, by boat and visiting for myself, the best of the city. I had seen many videos about the Sintra parish but in person it is much more impressive, you really have to visit it, I highly recommend it. My favorite part of the tour? The Pena National Palace seemed to me to be the most beautiful building in all of Lisbon, and our guide Flavio explained to us that this was the residence of the Portuguese royal family during the 19th century, that's when I realized why that place was so beautiful hahaha. An experience that I would repeat again without thinking about it!

He quedado encantado con este tour, el día era esplendido y perfecto para navegar con barco, de hecho esta fue mi parte favorita de la experiencia porque fue algo que no todos los tours por la ciudad incluyen y eso lo hizo tan especial y único e incomparable con los tours que se venden en la ciudad de Lisboa. El palacio da pena me pareció precioso, un lugar para quedarte horas mirando y sintiendo la buena vibra que se siente en el municipio de Sintra.

My first time in Lisbon and I am already looking forward to repeating the trip. This experience was incredible, I highly recommend it if you want to discover Lisbon and discover the historical and cultural aspect of the city. The Pena Palace is beautiful, I was very surprised by its striking colors since it stands out a lot. After the visit to Sintra we went by boat around the city and it was a wonderful experience.

Palacio da Pena was my favorite part, it is different from everything I've seen so far, stunning! The sailing part was fun as well and our guide was very fun and knowledgeable. I recommend this experience a 100%!!

What a day! Palacio da Pena was my favorite part, simply amazing! The guide Flavio was super nice and the sailing was fun. I highly recommend this experience!!
