Don't miss going to Sintra - it was a real highlight of our Lisbon holiday and this was a well-organised trip. Our guide Max was excellent; so friendly and informative; and the group size was good - we were in a minibus for about 20/22 people. It was a very comfortable bus. We arrived early at the Palace and so the queue to get in was not long. It is an amazing building. Max took us on a tour but then we also had some free time to explore. Our bus took us down to Sintra where we had time for lunch and to explore the shops there. We also stopped at Cabo da Roca which is very windy! We then had some time in Cascais which is a pretty seaside resort.

Excellent tour and experience! Diego was very knowledgeable, professional, friendly, and helpful. The bus driver was very nice and the bus was very clean and comfortable. Fantastic!!

This was our first day trip on any vacation and we thoroughly enjoyed it. Visiting these places on our own would have been a nightmare and cost much more.

such an amazing experience. goncalo and filipe were, in one word, legends!! would recommend this trip to anyone who visits Lisbon!

Fun guide with good information. Kept us entertained.
