This was a fabulous tour. It made a day of touring and seeing different sites. Our driver which I forgot his name , shared some information with us. We ( me and my husband) had the perfect amount of time in each location and all of his tips for where to go and what to do were excellent! It was the easiest way to see a few different places all in one day. Pena palace in Sintra and Cascais were fantastic.

Amazing experience

Our guide Ramiro was great. Even though we asked for visiting Quinta da Regaleira instead of Cascais, he was cool about changing of the plan and made us feel comfortable - he also gave us some tips and suggestions on how to view the sites well. Azenhas do Mar was just breathtakingly beautiful. Thank you for the wonderful experience.

Great Combo choice!

We were always on time in a private van for just the 2 of us! Driver gave us several options regarding the main attractions in Sintra and offering suggestions and flexibility for us to pick what attracted us most. We also could go faster in things we did not have much interest, so we did not feel boxed in a ready to go program! We loved and recommend it!
