We were looking forward to this tour as both Sintra and Cascais had been well recommended. However, the reality was that we raced from the station at Sintra to the top of the mountains and down to Cascais. We didnt see any of the streets of Sintra, nor much else really. Our guide Hugo Im sure meant well, but missed the point of the tour altogether. In the end we insisted on stopping for lunch in a Cascais otherwise it would have been a non stop race for 6 hours
This tour was fun and gave you a different perspective of the beautiful city! Our giide Daniel kept us well informed and safe...must do activity if you crave a little adventure!
This has been my favorite excursion! Our guide Ricardo, was fabulous, knowledgeable and with a lovely personality. Our outing to Sinatra was exciting, we didn't have fabulous weather, but the fog and mist made us feel like we were out of a scene in Lord of the Rings Thank you trainee, Breno, for keeping me feeling safe from behind I can't begin to describe the beautiful forest scenery, the castles and hidden secret lunch. Then we reached lovely Cascais, wow!!!! Thank you again. Anat
