Susannah (and) the driver were absolutely perfect- careful, considerate of all passengers and Susannah was very knowledgeable, pleasant, entertaining, made me want to read more about Pena and the Royal Family. The tour was perfectly timed to end with the sun sinking into the ocean at Cabo da Roca, where DaGama must have gazed and dreamed as he left from there. Impactful. I would recommend this tour to travelers who want to relax in the morning and not have to rush and to all interested in fine art, architecture and history. I will definitely use Get A Guide again in the future- no problems with payment or checking in.

Très bien toutefois le programme étant très chargé, on a l’impression de courir un peu mais c’est vraiment très intéressant et très beau, Le village de Sintra est intéressant mais pas le temps d’y faire quoique ce soit car l’arret N’a durée que 20 minutes alors ne peut visiter le château.toutefois le château Pena est un incontournable. Une escapade rapide près de Cascais et Cabo da Roca est également très spectaculaire.
