We had fun on the tour and it was overall a good tour. We went to Quinta first, which we liked and is what we were looking for. Pena Palace was our last stop and it was so crowded we didn’t really enjoy it (but not the fault of the tour, we went during one of the busiest travel seasons). We did love that we went to a uncrowded location at Cabo da Roça. We had a lovely lunch at a local spot along the way to the coast. The tours were friendly and great drivers. We appreciated this because it was much easier than finding your own way around Sintra! The only thing we didn’t love was the port tasting at the end felt rushed and unnecessary. We felt unwelcome at the port tasting and like the guy was annoyed we were there.

Thanks to our guide Paulo for the great day! He loves his job and it shows!! He was enthusiastic from start to finish and taught us a lot about the history of Portugal. As for activities: The palaces are magnificent, but the best was yet to come. The non-touristy viewpoint at The End of The World was worth the trip. I also loved the wine tasting at the end of the tour where I tasted the best Ginja of my entire trip and a local Pastel de Mata liqueur. In short, a wonderful day!!

An unbeatable experience, spectacular monuments, impressive gardens and fascinating views of Cape Rock, which very few people have the opportunity to see, unless they take this jeep tour. The day was amazing, not only because of what Sintra offers, but because of the two guides we had, who made us spend an unforgettable day, demonstrating great knowledge of each of the corners of the area. Without a doubt, we recommend everyone who visits Sintra to do this tour. Much obliged to Alex 1 and Alex 2 for the experience.
