Really enjoyed this tour day. We were picked up at our hotel with just one other family. The tour length was great at just over 5 hours not such a big, long day. The guide Agnes did a great job of getting us into the Pena Palace before the huge lines started to build up. She kept us informed and engaged. The driver Pablo was always getting us in and out of our stops without any problem and chimed in with interesting information.

Agnes and Paulo were both super friendly and provided such a worthwhile and pleasant experience for myself and my family. We had ample time to see all the major sites including the palace, Cabo de Roca, and beaches in Cascais at our own pace and learned so much during the tour. Would highly recommend these two to anyone!

Our guide and driver, Agnes and Paolo, were superb. Agnes was very knowledgeable but also provided the type of commentary that really made the history come alive. She also solved a ticket problem which was my fault, because I had ordered tickets for the wrong palace. Paolo's driving skills were much appreciated. He maneuvered the van through tight spaces while driving in the safest manner. If you are coming to Lisbon, you definitely want to visit Pena Palace and the coast, and I can't imagine a better tour to take.
