Overall a great trip. However, the place of assembly may be deceiving, the train station is stated. It has not been written, however, that you need to get to Sintra by train. Very unpleasant lady at the station providing information. I suggested a change in the description of attractions so that buyers know that they need to buy a train ticket to Sintra. However, the woman in charge of this attraction started shouting at me that it was obvious.

Excellent service

An excellent service, punctual, clean and functioning vehicles, only that I would put more passages, because every 30 minutes the bus for the small tour and an hour the mini bus for the big tour that leads to Boca de Roca on the Atlantic coast is little time , you have to do everything in a hurry and some historic sites we had to skip, one even where I bought the ticket because we didn't make it in time.

When will I take the next trip?

Doing touristing 8-10 hours a day is quite exhausting - all the fresh air and walking around. I only did 3 stops of the red line, I would go again and try other ones. Amazing was the Castelo dos Mouros. At Praia Grande Wim Wenders shot one of his movies.
