Descubra Sintra, antiga residência de verão dos reis portugueses, classificada como Patrimônio da Humanidade pela UNESCO, fora de Lisboa, em nossa excursão semi-privada. Visita guiada ao Palácio da Pena (ingresso não incluso) e tempo livre no centro histórico. Após o almoço, a excursão continua até o ponto mais ocidental da Europa (Cabo da Roca), seguido de uma visita à vila de pescadores de Cascais. A excursão também passará por Estoril, na costa.
I had a great time, even though it was cloudy and rainy all day. The rain did stop multiple times, and we were even able to see the sun from time to time. What I LOVED is that our guide took lots of photos of my husband and I. Our guide came into the castle with us and gave us commentaries as we walked though the castle. This is a real treat because one of our friends' guide with another tour company did not do that.
This tour picked us up and dropped us off at our hotel which was very nice. Our tour guide Rui was very nice and knowledgeable. I couldn't hear him very well on our way to Sintra maybe it was because we were in the back. The walk up to the Pena Palace was invigorating. It was a really foggy day and so to see the palace through the fog was eerie/interesting. The walk through was slow and long because there were a lot of people but very well worth it. The sun came out and we were able to see the Moorish Castle, the views were breathtakingly beautiful, so were the views from Estoril. From there, we drove through rich and beautiful Cascais where we had lunch and did a little shopping. This tour is a must.
THIS is the tour of Sintra tours. One of our best of trip. Amazing guide. Ruey. See farthest point west on the coast and everything was impressive. Mind blowing castle and great stories. Told several people along the way to book it. Our guard helped my aunt who had a cane and was kind and thoughtful. Very, very knowledgeable. MUST do tour!
Alberto was good. However, there was a traffic problem at the palace in Sintra. We were told to wait at the gate where we waited for 30 plus minutes. After the traffic clears we continued to wait another 30 to 40 minutes until he finally came for us. This caused us to miss part of the Sintra tour. Wasn't quite sure why the wait was extra longer than it needed to be.
