The day was seamless, educational, and fun! It was so easy to be driven from palace to palace, and we even got a long lunch break and recommendations on restaurants and desserts. It was the tiniest bit rushed at each location but that’s the only way you can get to every spot! We’re so glad we did this, thanks to Gustavo for showing us around all day.

Heerlijke reis gehad, gezellige kleine groep. Sintra is veel heuvel op en af, daar waren we goed op voorbereid. Sintra was voor mij het mooiste deel van ons bezoek aan Lissabon. Gids was vriendelijk en geïnteresseerd, ook een hele goeie chauffeur wat zeker bij de scherpe bochten heuvel op een vertrouwd gevoel gaf.

tour is really good you can see a lot of things in one day. there is a lot of walking, and I mean a lot! so be prepared and take good shoes. Many steep hills and uneven grounds, so do not make my mistake and go in flip-flops it is dangerous. good shoes are needed! our guide was super cute and nice but he didn't really tell us any stories about the places he was more just a driver not a guide. I instead followed an American tour group and listened to their guide instead because he was with his group onside telling stories. ours just waited always outside and let us go in alone even it said in the description ot is a guides tour
