Start your day being picked up at the meeting point and traveling directly to Quinta da Regaleira, a palace filled with mystery, metaphors and underground tunnels for a guided tour.  After the visit, you will have an overview of all 5 palaces and the 8th-Century Moorish Castle as you pass by the Sintra-Cascais Natural Park.

the guide was very friendly and professional. the arrangements of the trip was quite good. we went to the different places with sufficient time to enjoy. i recommended this company to explore Sintra. one thing that you will have to be careful: if you're the only one to book one trip, it might be cancelled or merged into another trip.

A day tour through some of the most beautiful places in Portugal accompanied by a local guide. The experience started with total openness and sympathy on the part of our guide who received us in the classic UMM convertible, providing a very particular perspective of the entire route. On the way we had blankets and water bottles available, as well as pleasant music and brief explanations about points of interest we passed. Both visits to Quinta da Regaleira and to Palácio da Pena were accompanied by clear and not too extensive explanations about some of the facts and interesting places in the areas. On the other hand, all the time spent in these places was spent calmly, with time to take advantage of individually and capture all the desired photographs. Finally, the finishing touches of traditional Sintra sweets and group snapshots, provided at the end of the trip, leave visual and taste memories for posterity.
