Gonçalo was an extremely friendly and informative tour guide, he offered a lot of very interesting Portuguese history, and kept a very accommodating pace. The bike tour of Sintra was absolutely beautiful with many varying landscapes. I highly recommend this!

A day trip mountainbiking in the hills around Sintra and out to the coast. With my two teenage sons we had a fantastic day - Gonçalo sized up up expertly and took us on some fabulous trails that we would never have found otherwise. He also provided plenty of interest about the local history and environment. We were lucky with... More

This is the only way to see Sintra! Gonçalo our amazing guide picked us up from Our Lisbon hotel and took us to the bureau in Sintra. From there we got our e-bikes (a great way to be able to get a little help getting around the steep hills if you are not a pro biker), and started the tour.... More

We rented bikes from Cycling Rentals for a weeklong trip through Andalucia, and had a great experience. Everything was seamless - the bikes were waiting fully assembled at our first hotel when we arrived, and they were picked up at our final hotel with no need for us to re-pack them. Prior to the trip staff member Didi Knowlton was... More

We had first class MTB day at Sintra together with my wife and our great guide Goncalo. Uphills were hard and downhills speedy and challenging single tracks. Goncalo is very expecienced MTB biker and nice and social guy, who has knowledge of history and nature of the Sintra area. Without his guidance we had never found such nice trails. We... More

The mountainbike daytour with our tour guide Goncalo was an amazing experience. You can expect a lot of heavy uphill cycling, rewarded with awesome downhill crossing trough small and steep tracks. The tour was really diverse: from the beatifull old town of Sintra, trough the woods, till the high cliffs and beaches at the coast. It was totally worth the... More

Together with 3 friends and our guide Gonçalo we did a 40 km trip around Sintra. We had a really great time; Gonçalo was a great guide and we had a very nice lunch half way during the trip. I would see we're moderate bikers and this was a good challenge for the 4 of us.

Rented 2 mountain bikes for a day to cycle around the Sintra area. The staff working there was very friendly and provided excellent service.
