“A Wonderful Way to See and Experience Sintra on E bikes.”
Reviewed 12 July 2014

We stumbled upon this company while planning our day trip to Sintra from Portugal. We had never ridden e bikes before but it sounded like fun so we decided to give it a try. They offer guided e bike tours for the day but we opted to just rent 2 e bikes for the day and go off on our own.
The day was marvelous from start to finish. They meticulously go over how the e bikes work, provide you with maps, saddle bags, and lots of suggestions for the day and you're off on bikes that take practically all the work out of some rather steep hills. We managed to cover an enormous amount of terrain that was visually spectacular and would have been almost impossible on regular bikes unless you are an extremely avid and fit cyclist.
This was definitely the way to see Sintra and the surrounding countryside.
My only suggestion for them would be to put some signs near their location which is not that easy to spot as they are not in the town of Sintra but a little ways out. Certainly walkable form the train station with their linked map but they need at least 1 sign outside their door!!
Don't miss this way to see and experience Sintra!

Dear SmallFace,

Many thanks for taking the time out to write a review. We also really appreciate your suggestions and I'm happy to say that as from the end of this month we will be opening an E Bike depot right by the Tourist information office in the Sintra Vila. It will be much easier to find us and get cycling around Sintra!

Thanks again for joining us and for taking the trouble to tell us what you thought!

All the best,

“One Day Sintra Mountainbike Trip”
Reviewed 3 July 2014

Booked the "Sintra Surf & Turf - Mountain Bike" one day trip. Was one of the best experiences for me as a beginner on the MTB bike. Nice people, professional guide with great knowledge about Portugal and Sintra. Our guide adapted perfectly to our experience and physical condition during the 40 km trip.

I was not prepared for a rainy day but got a wind jacket from them which saved my life during the day and also got a T-Shirt at the end for the way home so I dont get a cold in my sweaty biking clothes! Can only recommend! I got addicted to cycling for sure... :)

“Cycling Rental i Sintra”
Reviewed 14 May 2014

From Sweden to Lissabon in the beginning of May we enjoed the day out in Sintra with rented mountainbikes from Cycling Rentals. It was easy to order weeks before and the staff was helpful and eager to get the sizes of the bikes right and make sure we had a good route through the day, Therefore we got some nice local places to discover in those eight hours we had the bikes. We highly recommend to rent bikes from the family business Cycling Rental to experience Sintra (forget the car or the busses, you'll get anoyed). The bikes are well taken care of, they are of good qualit and the service is warm and welcoming. Enjoy

“Great service & wonderful bikes!”
Reviewed 13 May 2014

We were extremely pleased with Cycling Rentals from the start. We rented bikes thru Dee, who was so responsive & helpful. Our tour bikes were already waiting for us at our hotel in Sevilla. Bike quality was great & got us thru our two week tour of Andalusia without an issue. At the end, our luggage was waiting for us at our hotel in Nerja & we just took off the pedals & bags & the bikes were picked up, no problem. Everything was seamless! Definitely highly recommend Cycling Rentals & would use them again in a heartbeat! Thanks, Dee!!!

“Visit to Sinta - Ebike tours - must go and do it!!”
Reviewed 10 May 2014

Went and visited Sintra, Portugal. The mysterious little city in the heart of Portugal gave us a different perspective with the e-bike (electronics bike) touring around the city of Sintra up in the hills. Great escape to cool down after visits to Lisbon and Cascais.


Go and enjoy No sweat Tours!!
