We met at Praca de Luis Camoes where the party was divided into groups according to the language they had booked. We went to the station (Rossio) together and took a train to Sintra (ca. 40 minutes). There we had our first stop to have queijadas, coffee or anything else that needed to be done. We proceeded to the town hall and received the first talk on everything concerning the design of the buidling. We then went around town, the guide told us a lot about our surroundings and the history of the place. The last stop was Quinta de Regaleira after a short lunch break where we learned a lot about free masonry and the architectural design of the park. After a (a bit rushed) tour through the main building, our guide gave us tips as to what we could do in Sintra after his tour and he let us off after explaining how to get back to the station. The entrance for Regaleira was included in the price of the tour, lunch was not.
This company is outstanding, great value after a long flight and carrying luggage. Met by Gabriel and taken outside to Hugo and a lovely car to transport us to Cascais. Hugo was excellent, spoke good English and gave us lots of local knowledge and tips. He found our place to stay, parked and helped with our luggage then phoned the proprietor to come out to us. Thank you Hugo. Fully recommend this company and will surely use again. Will also post on trip advisor for others.
It’s not a half day tour it starts at 09:30 and finishes by 05:00 . Make sure you get packed lunch as there is no time on the tour . Also it doesn’t cover Pene . But would strongly recommend it as our guide Jamie was very informative .
We had a person waiting for us even when our plane had one hour delay. Our luggage was carried to the transport and the drive itself was pleasant. Would do it again!!
Our shared taxi turned out to be just us. Journey was longer than expected, so we considered it to be very good value.
