The Sintra and Pena Palace tour is a must do for all travellers to put on the top of their list of things to do when in Lisbon, known locally as Lisboa. The access roads are not easy to negotiate and so organising a driver and guide is essential. The guides provided were wonderful people who knew their stuff.

Wonderful experience with very kind guides! Definitely worth the trip from Lisbon to see the Pena Palace and I felt the time we had was enough to see the palace and walk around the small town. Agnes and Paolo went out of their way to make sure we had a good experience and helped us get all the pictures we wanted. They even dropped us back off at any location of our choosing in Lisbon so we had the opportunity to see something else that day after the tour!

Agnes and Pablo were so warm and welcoming from start to end. My mom and I truly enjoyed the tour. We had lots of laughs and although the weather started out being a bit misty at the Palace we were still able to get lots of very good photographic memories. Well worth it. The Palace is absolutely beautiful. We had time for a short stop in Sintra which we used to buy our souvenirs. Thank you, Agnes and Pablo for making our short stay in Portugal so enjoyable and being so helpful to my Mom.
