We were lucky with our driver and guide Carlos who was just great both in driving and guiding us.
Unfortunately, one day is not enough to see everything.
We only had time to visit Palace of Sintra, Castelo dos Mouros, Palace of Sintra and Cabo da Roca.
Next time we are going to Queluz, Quinta da Regaleira and Monserrate.
Again, thank you, Carlos!

Sintra is awesome. Our driver was professional, knowledgeable, car was clean and nice. He just drove us and dropped us off - didn't guide us, which was fine, although he pointed out things along the way. We saw 3 beautiful castles and the lighthouse. Make a reservation/figure out lunch in Sintra beforehand - we ate at a place that wasn't great because you don't actually have that much time to see the Palace and walk around the town and we just stopped in the first place we saw.

We booked on TA on a Sun morning for a Mon morning trip. Instructions on voucher said: "Time: 9am. Hotel pickups commence approximately 30 - 60 minutes prior to this time, exact pickup time will be advised on reconfirmation." Since we had asked to be picked on a main street 5 mins walk from our apartment, we wanted to get the correct time, not a range (we were staying in Chiado and drivers can't access our street).

We started calling the local travel agent - BE DRIVEN - and VIATOR at 7:50am. Both numbers listed on the voucher were wrong. I googled the local agent and called that number - no one picked up. I emailed the local agent. I tweeted at VIATOR and my friend left a message on FACEBOOK. Nothing.

At 8:20am I got an email the pick up was at 9am. My friend and I went and stood on the street at 9am. At 9:11am the office called to say the driver would be late because there was a problem with the car - 10 minutes. Also, he didn't know where to pick us up even though I had put the info in the form. At 9:30am I called them back - again told 10 minutes. The office didn't know what type of car our driver was driving, didn't know what the problem was etc. I spoke to them again at 9:40 and asked for a discount - the office said I had to talk to the "tour organizer." Our driver final arrived at 9:55am - he explained there was a problem with the brake in the first car and he had to go back to the airport and get a new car, at which point there was a lot of traffic. He was annoyed as had explained ALL of this to the office. So rather than tell us the driver was going to be almost an hour late, the office let us stand on a busy street corner. There has been no apology from the tour organizer - whoever that is - and no reimbursement for our inconvenience and discomfort. VIATOR finally responded to my tweet almost 12 hours later...

I've never booked through Trip Advisor before - not impressed.
