This is simply a must-do trip. Other trips offer a central location pick up but this trip has pick up at your hotel. The tour advertises that you will be in a group with a common language, however ours was a small mixed language group (Cuban, Spanish and English), our guide spoke both Spanish and English so it wasn’t an issue at all.
Our guide, Luis was excellent. A very funny, intelligent, multi lingual, knowledgeable man who was a joy to behold (and a former part time motorbike journalist as well). He ensured that no one missed out lingually.
This tour ensures that you will see much as possible from the town of Sintra to the western most point of Europe to the stunning Palace of Pena.
Lunch was at the beautiful Cascais and again great advice from Luis to avoid the tourist restaurants, we found an excellent local cafe.
This tour was more than value for money. Yes, you have to pay to go in the sites but the price of admission is cheap. Luis also slightly moved the itinerary around to avoid the crowds which meant less time queueing but also in the current climate more safe.
This tour is highly recommended. Thank you for an extremely memorable day.

Luis was our guide and we loved him! It was so lovely to have a guide to not only drive us around but he was so knowledgeable and able to provide insight to every stop we made and he provided excellent recommendations on the best places to visit and tourist traps to avoid. I'm so glad we booked a tour instead of relying on prerecorded audio tours that can't answer our questions. Luis did a fantastic job and we absolutely recommend this to anyone wanting a more personalized experience.

My husband and I did this tour whilst on our honeymoon in Lisbon and we were both in agreement, this tour was THE best day we had in Lisbon!
Our tour guide Andre Feldman honestly made the tour what it was. He was packed with knowledge about everywhere we went which really added some substance to the tour, we weren't just looking at pretty buildings, we were learning the history behind them.
He made our whole group laugh constantly and all the stories made the car journey's feel like they were just minutes long.

We were picked up at 7:45am (we were a few minutes late but Andre patiently waited outside)
We picked up the rest of the group, all of whom were wearing masks and we were frequently offered sanitizer which was reassuring.
We made our way to the sites listed, had a little coffee break at a cafe at around 10am and then a stop for lunch at around 2pm.

The tour was amazing! We thoroughly enjoyed it, I would HIGHLY recommend this tour if you're in Lisbon. Hoping you get Andre Feldman as your tour guide - he really makes the tour well worth it!

Thank you for an amazing day Andre,

- Rav & Sandeep!

Andre Feldman was a terrific tour guide in my girlfriend’s and I experience. He took awesome pictures, gave some historical/cultural knowledge, was cracking jokes in English, Italian and Spanish and even helped us by giving us helpful information on our bus trip to Lagos.

We’re thankful that we had him as a tour guide and would recommend him to anybody!

Gracias mi amigo 👍

This is a fabulous tour. Andre Feldman was our guide, picked us up at our hotel and did a great job of narrating the tour while interjecting his unique sense of humor to keep us all entertained. Every stop was a highlight including the picturesque town of Sintra, the Quinta da Regaleira, Cabo da Roca, and the Pena Palace. Lunch was on our own in the seaside resort town of Cascais where my wife and I had an excellent meal at a seafood restaurant. The tour is advertised as being 8 hrs but ours was almost 11 hrs. This was partly due to a light rain which delayed us in Sintra a bit. Keeping the length to 10 hrs or less would be our recommendation as we almost missed our dinner reservations. Also, the van that transported us was small so we were all packed in with no option for social distancing which made us a little nervous.

The day was absolutely brilliant. We were picked up right on time and everything went so smoothly. Dr. André Feldman was our tour guide and what can I say, from the minute you get picked up by this guy you know it’s not going to be any ordinary tour. André was a tour guide like no other, he went above and beyond to show us everything, we did everything at our pace, there was no rushing back for a certain time and the atmosphere was great. He was extremely informative and kept us very much entertained throughout the day. Between his humorous nature which kept us on our toes and had us all laughing constantly, to the sing a longs in the car in which he channeled his inner Frank Sinatra, we were never going to forget him. Sintra and Peña palace were so beautiful and picturesque Cascais was the perfect place to relax for lunch. André specifically planned our visits to each place at certain times to avoid the crowds unlike other tour guides and used his charm to prevent us from queuing for very long. Lots of walking was involved so bring a comfortable pair of shoes. There is a shuttle up to Peña palace that you can avail of which was a delight to myself who was wearing sandals with blistered feet by the end of the day. Overall a brilliant day out, with a great bunch of people and our fabulous tour guide. Highly recommend this tour and hope you are lucky enough to get André.

I am not exaggerating when I say I wish I could give an extra star! The full day tour was organised excellently by the company and I thoroughly enjoyed the 8 hour time with my friends on this tour. Very prompt transportation, extremely polite and friendly interaction, intricately detailed guiding and explanation of locations and tourist attractions were provided to my group. The entire duration was very well planned out, and we got to cover 5 locations in a single day, without feeling rushed at any point. There was ample resting time provided between places and sufficient time for pictures as well. I would highly recommend this tour to anyone who asks me regarding a visit to Portugal.

I would like to give a big cheers to Luis Pinto (my guide on the tour) as well. I haven't come across a guide with such astute knowledge on the history of the world. He is very sincere at his work, has a great sense of humor and manages to keep one engaged in his tour throughout. Loved every bit.

This is one unforgettable experience. Our tour began from our hotel with Andre Feldman. Where we went in a mini bus to Sintra. Andre is very knowledgeable, while interpreting his unique sense of humor to keep us all entertained. With every stop being so interesting and lots of beautiful views with plenty of opportunities for memory photographs. Andre dropped us off for a well deserved lunch on our own, where me and my husband enjoyed a meal in a lovely restaurant in Cascais. The tour is being advertised at 8hours but ours was well over the 8 hours. Definitely worth every penny! Yes the mini bus is small, but masks are worn at all times. Andre makes sure you use hand sanitizer before you enter. Thank you so much for assisting us with making the most out of our trip to Sintra. Make memories that will stay with us forever.

We had a great time with André - our lovely Dr. Feldman - in Sintra. He gave us astoinishing insights about the history of Sintra and the most peculiar stories about the masons and their beliefs. André‘s words brought the history to life and we felt as if we had been there.
We highly recommend spending the Day with Dr. Feldman; not only you will discover beautiful places but also experience them first-hand with André.

In our 11 days in Portugal, without doubt this was the best & most professional tour we had. Picked up from our hotel on time and us two Brits were joined by others from Colombia, Spain, Bolivia & Argentina. Our tour guide spoke in Spanish & English but everybody spoke some English. We had a great day together. Our guide (sorry I think his name was Luis) managed a long day really well. We first went to Sintra had a walk around the old town then went to the amazing UNESCO Quinta da Regaleira at Sintra Old Quarter. The owner António Monteiro and his Architect Luigi Manini have created an imaginative and fantastic Palace with grottoes, a cascade, secret tunnels, a Zigurate and the Mouth of Hell inspired by Dante. We then went to Cabo de Roca the Europe’s most westerly point and its Lighthouse for a short stop and then on to beautiful Cascais. We had free time for a look around and had an excellent lunch then were picked up and taken to the Palace of Sintra.

Our guide all along the route filled us in on so much local history and made the day really enjoyable with lots of banter between us all. Our guide drove up to the Park and Palace at Pena. You have to walk the last bit up to the Palace. Our guide walked up to the Palace with those that could (some of us paid the €3 extra to take the bus up the steep hill). He took us to the entrance of the Palace and we had enough time to visit this beautiful Palace, it’s colourful and tiled walls and domes, it’s many treasures and admire the views for miles from its terraces. I would like to return here and stay locally to visit the extensive parklands and other buildings.

A long but thoroughly enjoyable day.
