“Best way to do Sintra”
Reviewed 26 April 2014

We arrived at Sintra with the prospect of seeing maybe one, maximum two attractions due to the crappy rainy weather and the amount of time that we had. Located right outside the station, the little cars are very affordable when you compare them with tour prices (which you kind of have to do, unless you're super fit, it's such a struggle to get up and down those hills!!).

We had so much fun, the guy renting the little cars was extremely nice, and it really was the best way to see so much more than we expected! With the priority parking, we must have been asked at least three times if we could get some elderly people to the next park as people thought we worked for the parks - it was a pretty funny moment once they realised that we were visiting too.

All in all, this was probably the best purchase we made in our trip to lisbon - SOOO worth it!

“An absolute must!”
Reviewed 14 April 2014

This was the only way to see Sintra, and an absolute must. Located right by the train station, it was perfect. The guy renting us the cars was great, very helpful, and actually we returned the car an hour late and he had no problems with that. I did not care what the price was because I couldn't wait to get in the thing, but it might have been a little pricey, but who cares!!! After driving around Sintra for a bit, I guess I wondered what we would have done without the car. Attractions are not very close to each other. The cars were fun to drive, had GPS and would narrate along the way. My only advise would be, your two options for length of rental are to short. So we rented it for an hour longer, returned it an hour later than that, and it was still to short. Rent it as long as he will let you. And have a FREAKIN BLAST!

“Best way to get around Sintra.”
Reviewed 24 February 2014

The perfect way to see Sintra at your speed and without being rushed by tour guides.

All the cars come with built in Navigation so almost impossible to get lost.

Soooo much fun to drive.

“Small, fun environmental tour car for two”
Reviewed 2 February 2014

We were pressed for time and weather was wet so we rented this car for three hours. The satnav and commentary to the chosen route was helpful but due to the wet weather it can be quite dangerous going down the cobbled streets.
We did have a fun time in this car
