I booked this excursion to Sintra and surroundings for October 16, 2021. Then I received a whatsapp from the guide to inform me that he would pick us up at 8:00 a.m. at the hotel. When the day arrived, Hugo, our guide, was at the hotel reception on time and with a clean and new car. Hugo is a great professional, formal, attentive, friendly, he knows the places to visit well and his advice made it possible for us to visit Sintra without the crowds of tourists. We had an unforgettable day and at the end of the visit he took us back to the hotel. You cannot go to Lisbon and not visit Sintra, so I recommend this excursion 100%.

Very much enjoyed our day with Miguel. He was very personable and informative. He allowed us to spend time in places that were of interest to us without rushing us or imposing his desires on us. It made this tour so much more enjoyable than with a whole crowd of tourists who all had to do the same things.

We were surprised to have basically a private tour tailored to our needs! It was a wonderful experience where we learned a lot about the region, had great conversations, and also time to ourselves to explore. The highlight was the palace at Queluz! We practically had it to ourselves! I’d definitely recommend this tour to anyone and will be in contact to organize my next tour when I’m in Portugal!
