I booked this excursion to Sintra and surroundings for October 16, 2021. Then I received a whatsapp from the guide to inform me that he would pick us up at 8:00 a.m. at the hotel. When the day arrived, Hugo, our guide, was at the hotel reception on time and with a clean and new car. Hugo is a great professional, formal, attentive, friendly, he knows the places to visit well and his advice made it possible for us to visit Sintra without the crowds of tourists. We had an unforgettable day and at the end of the visit he took us back to the hotel. You cannot go to Lisbon and not visit Sintra, so I recommend this excursion 100%.

Fantastic experience and very knowledgeable shipmates ! The ten of us , all family members with elderly grandparents all really enjoyed this boat trip. Fantastic sky as the sun sets, well worth doing in Cascais :-)

The tour guide Ronaldo was friendly and definitely showed us more than expected. But for the castle in Sintra I suggest take a whole day and not just 90 min. The park is beautiful and worth walking around too.

the entire trip was flawless and eduardo was a perfect guide. we experienced everything described and more and we learned so much about this beautiful country’s history and specifically sintra.

Experience sailing on the Atlantic Ocean, a happy experience
