What people are saying about Sintra

An overpopulated but worthwhile attraction

Huge queues everywhere. It’s what I call a “crocodile visit”. From queuing at Rossio train station, to queuing in the dreadful traffic up the mountain from Sintra station, to queueing up the top to the palace to queuing to go into and around the palace. But it’s worth it. The best part for me was the walk over to the Moorish Castle - much more my style although the clouds spoiled the view. Tips: Book ahead for everything, this will minimise your queuing. Go very early or very late to miss the queues. Get a tuktuk up from the station rather than the bus or taxi as the tuktuk can, mostly, beat the traffic queue. It cost 15 euros for two of us to go up and 5 each to come down. The ride itself was very enjoyable!

Great value and money well-spent when your group and guide match!

My wife and I thoroughly enjoyed the group tour of Sintra and Cascais! The great combination of excellent weather, knowledgeable/personable guide (Bruno) and compatible companions (7 of us including a respectful 13 year old teenager from the USA) made the 8 hours fly by. Definitely a memorable highlight of our 6 week European journey through 5 countries! Portugal is a hidden gem with many facets to discover....

So glad we got tickets to skip the line -- it was mobbed

It's important to get skip the line tickets, especially during the high tourist season. My second piece of advice is to go early in the morning -- there were a lot of hills and the line of cars/buses to get up to the palace moved very slowly as we didn't go until mid-day. But it was worth it -- a beautiful fairly-tale like castle

Amazing place- glad we didn't have to wait in the ticket line!

Pena Palace and Sintra are so different from almost any other European palace or castle or mansion. The colorfulness and whimsy, along with the incredible details make it worth a visit, even with crowds and heat and uphill walking. GYG tickets helped a lot because the ticket line would have been very long!

Great, nice, interesting and iformative tour

Raquel made our day. she is a data hub. From the beginning to the end of journey everything was very interesting . Without knowing , without any feeling of climbing a hill, her stories took us up to the palace.
