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

If you don't mind the noise of an old squeaky electric tram, this is a fantastic way to see the countryside and a few other villages around Sintra. The ride takes 35 to 40 minutes and is pretty loud, but the views and the beach are fantastic.

A not-to -be missed trip by tram through the Portuguese countryside and villages to the seaside. Then walk north along the coast for an hour. A srp back in time.

In summer, the Sintra to Praia de Maças tram (electrico in Portuguese) runs an hourly service on a vintage open tram. Timetable and details can be found on the Sintra local authority pages - http://www.cm-sintra.pt/Artigo.aspx?ID=3202. It costs 2 euros single journey, and takes about 50 minutes - slowly dropping down to the beach village - but not quietly - wheels... More

Sintra is a gorgeous small town near Lisbon and the sea and it looks and feels like a modern but yet medieval city with sculptures along beautiful gardens and castles and mountains and outdoor markets and restaurants. A must see!

right in front of the palace in the center of Sintra, the little green tram can be found. It goes every 45 minutes (approx!) and is a good deal for 5 Euros. However, some of the roads it goes on are repeated to get to one place or another, and the commentary is half-hearted to say the least. Still, if... More

Caught tram a Praia do Macas back to Sintra. My wife and I loved every minute of the trip. The journey is bliss with everyone waving to you as you pass, the scenery is breathtaking after reaching Colares when the Sintra hills and palaces come into view. Being open at the side would recommend caution if you have small children... More
