What people are saying about Sintra

Great tour, highly recommend it! Joao was great!!!

This was a fantastic tour and our guide, Joao (John), was incredibly friendly and knowledgable. Starting from the moment he picked us up at our hotel, he pointed out historical landmarks and shared so much of Portugal's long history along the way. John was considerate, thoughtful and catered to our needs. The tour took us to Sintra, Caba da Roca, the westernmost point in Europe (and what a beautiful spot it is), the beautiful town of Cascais, and the Belem area of Lisbon. We tasted so many delicious foods and drinks and John did a wonderful job of explaining and giving us a little history about everything we were eating or drinking. And we loved being in the VW Beetle convertible. There is not a better way to explore this beautiful area of Portugal and learn so much about the country’s history and culture! Our only mistake was not booking this earlier in our trip and doing a second day! Thank you John, we had such a fun day and so many laughs! We will be back again!!

Well organised, relaxed tour. Our guide, Rita, was excellent.

This was a well organised, relaxed with free time tour. Our guide Rita was excellent. This was an only in English language tour and Rita was fluent in speaking English with a clear accent. She was also very knowledgeable of the places we visited. She has a warm, helpful, friendly and witty personality which made the tour enjoyable. It was a small group tour and we visited all the places as promised. The countryside we drove through was very picturesque as was the breathtaking coastal roads dotted with quaint fishing villages opening out into the Atlantic. A word of warning: be very careful of pickpockets everywhere in Portugal during the high tourist season. I fell victim to one in Cascais on the way back and along with my purse my passport was stolen. However, Rita was very helpful and also came with us to the police station to file a report. Thank you, Rita. You made Portugal proud.

Excellent! Interesting and informative with a great guide.

The tour was was conducted exclusively in English, which meant that we had entire attention of the guide (Manuel). While driving to and between locations, Manuel talked about the significant events in the history of Portugal and the customs of the Portuguese people. With regards to the tour being exclusively in English, we were a group of 8 in a minivan. I believe that the company had another minivan doing the same tour in Portuguese. Other touring companies would combine the two groups onto a larger vehicle and conduct the tours in English and the local language. That really detracts from the experience. Sintra and Cascais and surrounding areas are well worth seeing. The experience was enhanced by Manuel's expert commentry. It was a full day and very enjoyable throughout. I recommend Lisbon Riders.

It was a very well organized trip and very informative!

Loved this trip! Our guide Tanja was super nice and the tour was perfectly organized. Tanja shared lots of interesting information about Sintra and the other places we stopped by. It was not a rush at all, but just the right amount of time at each place. I could definitely not have visited all these places in one day by myself without having been stressed about the whole traveling between the places. The tour was very enjoyable and I can only recommend it if you don't want to worry about organizing the trip by yourself. This will take you to Sintra (palace, museum, a bit of the park and the village), Cabo da roca, a couple small seaside towns along the way and finally Cascais!

thoughtful, responsive and most engaging

This one day tour was a treat for myself so I was dismayed find I'd booked the wrong date. The team were instantly response, rearranged their plans to include me and made me feel most welcome. It was a wet, cold and windy day but nothing deterred our guide and the whole day was exactly the treat I had hoped for. A terrific team, great service and memorable day. Thank you. Elyssebeth
