Booked this tour for myself, my sister and our 80-year-old mum who walks with a cane. Apart from a very minor mixup regarding pickup location, we had a fantastic day. Nuno was so attentive and stopped whenever we asked him to and gave excellent commentary throughout the trip. There was a forest fire alert on the day of tour which meant we couldn’t drive up to see the palaces in Sintra, but Nuno took us to see loads of beaches and other fascinating places instead - this more than made up for the disappointment of missing the palaces. Highly recommend this activity.
Lovely park with lots of different plant species. Monserrate Palace is absolutely beautiful and great for some romantic photos . I only wish that the digital map was more easily available, so the website does need some refining. At the moment you can only find the map, either by searching on the site, or by going to the “Professionals” area and then selecting “Press”.
This tour was exactly what we hoped it would be. We saw so much in just half a day - ideal if you are short of time as we were, with only 2 days free in the Lisbon area. Our host was charming and knowledgable, Sintra was delightful, Copa de Roca gave us some fine coastal views and it was also good to see various landmarks on the drive mack into Lisbon
We used our tickets to visit this palace much later in the day when the crowds had dispersed which made for a much more enjoyable time, the palace is open until 19.00hrs (please check, there may be seasonal variations!) so visiting at 16.00 hrs allows ample time and there are frequent trains back to Lisbon late into the evening.
The tickets can be directly used at the entrance and it is very convenient. As it was a Monday of October, there was no one but it was anyway good to arrive with the tickets. The Palace in nice and interesting to learn about the habits and daily life of our ancestors
