Such an amazing trip! João is an excellent guide who took into account our preferred route. We visited Pena palace, Moorish Castle, Quinta da Regaleira. We also passed by Cabo da Roca. João is very knowledgeable of history and interesting facts. He also gave us some tips of what to visit in Lisbon, which we did on the next day. Do not hesitate booking this trip, as this will definitely be helpful in terms of history as well as getting around Sintra.

The tour was amazing! The guide Rodrigo is an exemplary professional! Very friendly and showed a lot of knowledge about the places visited. Your experience and tips saved us a lot of queuing time and we were able to make the most of the time available, we were very happy and had a lot of fun with your company throughout the day. We were on our honeymoon and this tour was certainly one of the most memorable experiences. We recommend!

Very informative and fun tour

We booked this tour because we could start at a later time if we wanted, this was impossible with other providers. Unfortunately the weather didn't play along at all, but João just made the best of it and told us an unforgettable story of the Pene Palace with lots of information! Since we couldn't see anything but the palace due to the rain and fog, João took us on a sightseeing tour along the coast and also showed us the fishing village of Cascais! All in all it was a great day with João from TakingUTer!
