Personalised tour to Sintra and surrounds

Alexandra picked us up at the Time Out market and took us in her car on a full day tour. She recommended a reverse order to the usual, so Cascais, Cabo da Roca and we then chose to walk through the Pina Palace grounds, visit Pina Palace, Sintra town and Quinta da Regaleira (skipped the queue). The reverse order meant we avoided all the traffic - a good call. A fabulous day in total with Alexandra always at the ready to collect us for the next place. Her knowledge of the sites was text book perfect. On reflection, a better option would be to go to the Pina Palace main entrance (Alexandra as a tour operator can allow you to skip the 1 hour queue) and then wander the grounds at your leisure. Frankly, I would skip Sintra (too many tourists) and go for the Moorish castle instead. A fully personalised tour with Alexandra.

Our guide, John, was from Sintra and was exceptional!

Having a private and extremely knowledgeable guide was definitely the way to cover Sintra and Cascais. I can’t say enough about our guide who was called John. He was one in a million. If you are considering a similar trip ask for him. His luxury Peugeot van made travelling in style. He taught us so much we would have had no way of knowing otherwise. He took exceptional care of my elderly mother. He was totally professional in every way possible. He spent time asking us at the beginning of the day about our preferences, how we wanted to spend the day, what our major interests were etc. And totally customized the tour accordingly. We couldn’t have been happier. Thank you so much John! Jane Lennon from Canada.

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.

Amazing experience with an excellent guide!

Alex was a great guide! Her approach is very personable. She spent enough time with us To explain the history behind all of the places we got to see without being overbearing. We had enough time on our own to explore and enjoy the sights. Her general knowledge of the area was great and insightful. Looking forward to doing more tours with her!

Another visit made easy by buying online GYG tickets

We used our tickets to visit this palace much later in the day when the crowds had dispersed which made for a much more enjoyable time, the palace is open until 19.00hrs (please check, there may be seasonal variations!) so visiting at 16.00 hrs allows ample time and there are frequent trains back to Lisbon late into the evening.
