We were so very happy with this company and the multiple tours we did with them. They picked us up from the airport and kindly moved stuff around as we were delayed a few hours. When we got in, we worked with our guide to switch things up a bit and do Sintra and Cascais. We learned a lot, packed in a lot, and felt safe and comfortable. The next day, they came right on time to take us on a tour of Lisbon city and then to the airport. I highly recommend Gold Compass for yours and transfers to and from the airport!

My family took this tour with Rui through Gold Compass and had a great time. My dad is disabled and cannot walk well, but Rui took great care of him and made sure everyone had an amazing time and saw the beautiful sights of Sintra. I highly recommend a private tour if you have the time-- Sintra is probably the most beautiful part of Portugal!

Nuno was a great and informative driver. We can’t wait to come back to Lisbon so we can spend more quality time in Sintra. The half day tour was useful but in hindsight I would choose a longer visit.

Absolutely brilliant tour with our driver Nuno. He was polite, friendly and certainly knew his stuff. Couldn’t have asked for better. He even treated us to a local delicacy which was very thoughtful and also very tasty.

This tour was a great way to visit Sintra and Pena Palace. Our driver/guide was flexible and asked what we wanted to see. He pointed out many sites we wouldn't have noticed without his knowledgeable commentary. We visited Pena Palace and the village, which was about all we could expect to see in the time allotted for this tour.

The tour was great. The driver was knowledgable and spoke good English. The sites were amazing. I liked the Moorish Castle the best. It was a great spot. The palace was nearby and was fairly crowded. Also very interesting.

We were picked up by a wonderful driver who was very knowledgeable about the areas we were going to. He even made sure we got advance tickets to Pena Palace on the way. We did our tour on a Wednesday which was still crowded but not as bad as on weekends. We did Pena Palace, got coffee in Sintra, and visited the western most point, but ran out of time to do the other sights that are described in this package.

We had a wonderful afternoon with our Gold Compass driver. He was so friendly and kind and informative. Sintra was beautiful but very crowded. It seems to be getting more tourists than it can deal with. But the summer palace we saw on the way there was lovely and quiet.

We had a very special day with our guide, Rui, on a half day tour to Lisbon. Rui was waiting for us at our hotel when we came outside and whisked us away for a perfectly guided tour of Sintra. He offered the perfect balance of history, fun facts, and good conversation throughout the day. We only wish we had more time with him! We would highly recommend this company to anyone visiting the Lisbon area who would like a truly VIP experience.
