I'm well traveled and have taken many tours (and a competative bike racer). This tour was 100% the best tour I've ever taken. Getyourguide partners with local tour companies and my local tour company's guide's name is Daniel. Ask for him. At first they gave me a hybrid type bike which I was not comfortable on (being that I only ride road bikes and mountain bikes). Within minutes they swapped it out with a Cannondale 29er mountain bike which was my style, fit well, and it had high level components. It was an awesome time. I saw stunningly pretty sites, delicious custard tarts, coffee, and great conversation with Daniel. He is well versed in Portuguese history and speaks English well. I could not ask for a better guide or local tour company. I actually paid the price for two people even though it was just me and I feel that I got my money's worth. It was raining and I did not care. I wanted to ride in the rain and Daniel obliged me.
Of course in Sintra one must visit Pena & other palaces, and Quinta de Regaleira. But there are so many MORE gems that are hidden as well. This tour is a must to actually learn about traditional life in Portugal (which the normal tourist sites do not show at all). And Filipe was a fantastic tour guide. He is very knowledgeable and very fun. He obviously loves his country as well. If all you want to learn is who built a chair in a palace, this is not the tour for you - stick with the run-of-the-mill palace tours. But if you want to know what life was like in the small village, call Filipe. You won’t be disappointed.
An exceptional day! Our guide Daniel made us discover the region of Sintra in Cascais, passing by unusual places that we would never have discovered without our guide. Daniel has integrated very well into our group without imposing himself!

Nice guide, exhausting tour despite e-bike, but with great views of the Western Cape. We deliberately deselected the castles and looked at the coast. About 45-50 km you have to master.
