Sintra: Hidden Gems Guided Walking Tour with Pastry
- Small group
- Duration: 3 hours
The guide Mr Leitacio was amazing, his knowledge of the place, its history and culture great. Although a local born and bred guy, his command and diction of English was v good. Very friendly, the tour also had a free tasting of pastries and a drink as part of the tour. Despite the storm, wind and rain, he went out of his way to guide and help us in best possible way. The tour of 1/2 day is essentially sufficient incl. collection of souvenirs if any. Lovely Cascais, superb roads along the Atlantic. Worth the money paid.
We were surprised to have basically a private tour tailored to our needs! It was a wonderful experience where we learned a lot about the region, had great conversations, and also time to ourselves to explore. The highlight was the palace at Queluz! We practically had it to ourselves! I’d definitely recommend this tour to anyone and will be in contact to organize my next tour when I’m in Portugal!
Hi, Im sorry Ive forgotten the name of the person who had come to pick us up. The only downfall of the trip was he came to pick us up half hour late and we were dripping sweat since it was summer. The driver/guide was very sweet, he took us to 3 places as we had requested and lent us enough time to spend at all 4 palaces. Took us to this great patisserie too! The ride also was very comfortable.
My husband and I thoroughly enjoyed our day trip to Sintra from Lisbon. Our guide, Alex, was terrific! He was punctual, polite, and easy to talk to. In addition to telling us about Portugal’s history, he also told us about what life is like for most Portuguese. The weather wasn’t great for our trip - rainy, foggy - but Alex helped us make the best of it. We highly recommend this tour!
Very much enjoyed our day with Miguel. He was very personable and informative. He allowed us to spend time in places that were of interest to us without rushing us or imposing his desires on us. It made this tour so much more enjoyable than with a whole crowd of tourists who all had to do the same things.
