What people are saying about Sintra

Half Day Trip to Sintra, Cascais, Cabo da Roca from Lisbon

Highly recommend if you have only a few hours to spare on your trip to Lisbon! Marisa, our guide was extraordinary and the trip was amazing. Though a bus tour, our group was a comfortable size and not overwhelming at all. Sintra was breathtaking. We visited Palacio Nacional de Sintra, the only extant medieval palace in Portugal. The drive through Sintra was stunning, and the vistas along the coastline were spectacular. We visited Boca do Inferno, Cabo da Roca (westernmost point in Europe), and the lovely seaside resort of Cascais. The experience I gained on this tour was an key reason I booked my return trip back to Portugal within 6 weeks of returning home! HIGHLY recommend this tour and returning to spend more time in stunning Sintra and Cascais!

Great trip, lots to see and take in and wonderful guides

We had a great guided tour around Sintra and the Quinta de Regaliera. Picked up promptly from our hotel in Lisbon and Agnes is very knowledgable about the Sintra/Cascais/Lisbon area and it's history. We learnt lots of new information and saw areas we wouldn't have discovered on our own so highly recommended. Shout out to Paolo who is a very accomplished and safe driver, nothing was to much trouble for either. Agnes took some great photos of us as well so big thank you! We were worried about how steep the walk would be as I'd fell on the cobbles in Alfama the day before and hurt my knee - although some parts of Sintra can be steep, Agnes makes sure the pace and route was suitable so we had no problems. I would highly recommend this tour.

Wonderful trip and perfect amount of time!

We had a wonderful trip with Agnes and Paolo! Agnes was amazing and accommodated the tour for my older mother. She was so personable and sweet and gave us so much good information about Sintra and Quinta da Regaleira. Agnes has such a warm and welcoming presence and she is exceptional at her job! She went above and beyond and made sure we had everything that we needed and that we were comfortable. Touring with Agnes and Paolo felt like having close friends show you around the best spots. I would highly recommend this tour and the 5-hour duration was perfect for us.

Great guide, not so ideal transportation

We were supposed to have a minivan for our tour of sites in and around Sintra. Instead we got a big 4x4. It meant we were 3 on a side and one in front. It was difficult to see out the sides and to hear our guide. Alex was our guide and he was really excellent. He has a degree in history so he gave us really good background on what we were seeing and help us to contextualize it within the larger scope of Portuguese history. He also made great suggestions on local specialties to taste. He was really engaging and fun to be with.

Quick, All-In-One Half Day Tour of Sintra

The guide was very friendly and knowledgeable. She can speak three-four different languages and swap between them with no trouble. We started on-time and made it swiftly through all stops efficiently. The bus was pretty comfortable, but I'd recommend having one with USB outlets.
