What people are saying about Cascais Marina

Overall rating

4.8 / 5

based on 2,960 reviews

- Changed meeting point worked perfectly and was communicated very well. - Transport with minibus super. - Bus driver was very good. - Tour guide Ruth was great and extremely competent! - Excursions were very nice! - The program is pretty well planned and there is good use of time everywhere. (At least 4 stations) If you want to see the palace from the inside, booking via GYG definitely makes sense - otherwise you'll have to stand forever to get in. The palace corridors and the outside view are worth seeing. It would have been nice to have had a little more time at Cabo da Rocca. (Like I said, lack of time)

Amazing experience! Truly experienced Portugal history and exquisite sites.

Even though the weather was not the best, we managed to have a fun time

Very knowledgeable guide, perfectly organized tour. I advise!

Great way to enjoy half the day at Lisbon and Sintra!
