Despite the closure of the Pena Palace due to potential forest fire, our guide Joan made this visit to Sintra and Cascais, thanks to her good humor and her culture, very pleasant. He even showed us around other places (alfama) to replace the closed palace. Very pleasant and smiling, he did not count his time. We recommend !

We had a super group that had great energy ~ our guide really went with our groups dynamics. The tour was relaxed, fun and still offered lots of learning and relatable history. We were so happy to meet our 3 new friends from the US and I wish I could remember our guides name because he was fantastic!

Really good experience, loved our tour guide! His timekeeping was great and he was very knowledgeable on the setting. Our day was slightly let down by other patrons. They were late and were hesitant on interacting with us. As they spoke in another language (which isn't a problem) they consistently kept our guide speaker in Portuguese/Spanish. We, along with others, felt a little left out of the experience. Would recommend but maybe divide the language speakers. (Which we understand can be difficult).
