Fun to take an old-timey transport, but so loud that both myself and the small children from Britain on the tram were holding our hands over our ears. It isn't bad on the straightaways, but every turn in the track causes an ear-splitting screech...and Sintra in general has very few straightaways. We wondered why there were only tourists and no...

Enjoyed each and every one of the thirty three minutes on the little train, although my wife was at times a little worried by the seemingly mechanical menacing noisy problems. Provided us with an excellent overview to plan our future pedestrian exploration of Sintra.

The electric was used to transport the barrels of wine from Ramisco vine variety from the beach area, where it was produced, to Sintra. The carriages of the time are very well maintained and you should not miss this trip made along a route that follows the existing road and in some areas passes among the houses of several villages...

The Sintra Tram is over 100 years old and links the centre of Sintra to Praia (beach) das Maçãs. It is a beautiful trip of around one hour (the return is another hour) going through a very nice and quiet road with lots of vegetation. The ideal season to do this trip is Spring or Summer. You can spend some... More

Little tram:) from the era of dinosaurs :). Nice and cute and making a lot of noise. About 45 minutes from Sintra to Praia Macas allow to see mountains, old villas and enjoy beautiful views.

The tram journey is a joyful trip along the interurban route down to the seaside. Only ruined by the screaming, snotty, squealing, fidgeting, vile little spoilt brats and their oblivious parents who ruined it. I could see other adults equally pissed off. This was more than one family to blame as well. It would be nice to have a child-free... More

Rode the tram with wife and 2 year old daughter and can't understand the attraction. The tram looked old and not well maintained, the ride was noisy, uncomfortable sitting on wooden benches and unsafe with just a wooden beam stopping us from falling out the side. Take a bus, faster and comfortable
