Our tour guide, Luis, met us on time at the pick up point. He was well organized and got us to Peña Palace before the lines. Unfortunately, we didn’t get to go in QR due to it closing early. The local government apparently decided to close the monuments due to heat and fire warnings. This was not our guide’s fault. He was very knowledgeable with the historical information.

My friend and I took this tour and our guides name was Jose. We were the last to be picked up so we got to sit in the front next to him. Some people might have found it awkward but it was pleasant being front and center for the trip and being able to interact with the guide. He gave a lot of history and information! We were a group of people with a lot of questions and wanted to learn the history so I felt he fed off of this and provided us with as much information as possible, which was great! It was a very full day with a lot of stops, each better than the last. Jose ensured we got the full story at each location and knew as much as possible about what we were seeing. We really enjoyed this trip and the time we spent with Jose. It was everything we could have hoped for and more.

Sintra: a must-do tour!

Loved all the history of the place. Could have stayed even longer at each stop. It does feel a bit rushed at times so take pictures and then read the information later. The driver/tour guide was great but could use a microphone bc I sat in the back and it was hard to hear. The guide was very knowledgeable and had only been on the job four weeks and clearly knew his history.

Good group. Nice, flexible, humorous, knowledgeable guide. Comfortable van. One small bit of feedback: would have been nice if the guide gave an overview of the sites we were going to stop at throughout the day. I booked the tour months ago and forgot the specifics (and the viator app does a poor job of memorializing the specific details of a tour once you've paid for it). I think of this as a minor issue and i would take the exact tour again -- have toured with viator since.

THE GREATEST TOUR GUIDE EVER, ANDRE FELDMAN
Elisabeth_A
, Apr 2022
Most memorable of all is the tour guide, ANDRE FELDMAN, extraordinary individual, charm, respectful, funny, knows how to tell a story, like no other person. We had so much fun, laughed so much, I needed that. I wish all tour guides were at least half of what he is, doubt that there is anyone coming up to his stature, the greatest jew I know. The sights were fantastic but with Andre they are just extraordinary, thank you for having him, we were blessed by having him on this tour.

Quinta da regaleira was definitely the star of the day with the coastal visits also good. The Peña Palace was somewhat disappointing, needing some TLC which the entry fee surely provides. Guide Luis was excellent and proved very knowledgable on a whole range of subjects and especially history.

This tour was put together very nicely. You are able to visit many different sites, many of which I would like to now return and explore even further. Unfortunately, the weather was quite rainy and it was foggy when we visited Pena Palace. However, weather cannot be controlled and even in the mist, it was a beautiful place. I highly recommend this tour.

We had the most amazing day. This was the highlight of our visit to Portugal. Our tour guide André was great, very knowledgeable, personable and super friendly. He was perfect! We had enough time with him guiding us and enough time to enjoy alone. He also took the best pictures of us. He is the best tour guide we had ever. André you are the best. Sintra and Cascais are beautiful places. We loved the locations and the tour.

Diego was entertaining and informative. The tour was quite comprehensive and we were happy to have a guide to tell us about the history of the places we visited rather than just walking around by ourselves.
