Robinson was very knowledgeable and made the tour interesting. This was a sizeable group yet he managed it well and kept a good pace for the tour. His suggestions of things to do and places to rest, dine at were great. Overall, we enjoyed ourselves, despite the rain.

Alexandra was a wonderful guide! The schedule is tight but well planned - the coach drops you off in Sintra and you walk to Quinta da Regaleira first to see the Initiation Well so we could beat the crowds, you then get lunch and free time in Sintra before heading to Pena Palace where there is just enough time to see the exterior and walk through the palace before heading for an hour of free time in Cascáis (I think this could be skipped in favour of some more free time in Sintra). Both palaces are extremely busy and there is a lot of waiting in line. It’s like a conveyer of people moving through the well and Pena which is the reality whether you are on this tour or not. I liked the convenience of the tour with direct transport and having the guide to help get us to the lines we needed to be in (so much less stressful) and it was helpful to have the explanations. It was well organised and Alexandra did an amazing job of keeping the group of over 40 people together!

Great trip and excellent tour guides! Really appreciated we had two guides and split in groups of ~20 people. Huge pros of the trip are you dont end up waiting in lines because guides can get tickets for you and help skip the lines. Would recommend this option! (expect a tour of Quinta, 1.5 hour for lunch + explore in Sintra, 15-30 min uphill walk to Pena palace, 1 hour to explore, 1 hour to explore Cascais solo, return back to Lisbon)
