My family and I (2 kids 9 and 12) went on this private tour of Fátima and Sintra. Hermes was our driver and was a great guide to Fátima and Sintra. He was really accommodating throughout the tour and did an amazing job explaining Sintra's Palace of Pena. He also gave us time to explore Fátima and Sintra's restaurants ourselves which was nice. I really enjoyed this tour and would definitely do it again! Thanks, Hermes!

We had an excellent trip with Hermes! He was so nice and was really great and explained everything we saw with a lot of detail. He let us decide how much time we wanted at each monument or for breaks and eating making the day super customizable to what you preferred seeing. I would highly recommend this tour and honestly any tour with Hermes.

Excellent service from Hermès. Punctual with the pick-up time for the hotel, very friendly and professional. Thank you very much for the Hermès stories.
