I can't say enough good things about Cycling Rentals and my assigned mountain bike guide Ralph Mason. The service from Cycling Rentals is unlike any other I've encountered. A bike was delivered to our rental house in Colares in pristine shape and after very short notice. There was a mix up with dates that was fixed within no time and... More

We rented two bikes to cycle the el Camino in Spain and we were delighted by the service and quality. The bikes arrived at our hotel two days before we did. They were in perfect condition and everything was as they described. It was extremely easy to perform the minimal amount of assembly and the bikes performed flawlessly. We needed... More

As extraordinary as all of our experiences were in Sintra, our bike trip was definitely one of the highlights. And as for our guide, I cannot recommend Goncalo more emphatically. He met my wife and I punctually at our hotel, had high-end carbon mt.bikes at the ready and we were quickly on the way to an exquisite half-day adventure riding... More

I was amazed that everything worked out without a hitch. The bikes arrived at the hotel a day before we did. It took about half an hours to unpack and set up and we were off. Because of rain we had to return them a day early at a different location than we had anticipated, but that was no problem.... More

I was lucky enough to go on a tour with Ralph one to one. His knowledge of the hills and surrounding areas was top notch and he tailored a perfect ride for us on the day.

Dear TassieOlie, Thank you so much for taking time out of a busy day to send such a stellar review! Sintra is certainly challenging, as well as, incredibly beautiful and Ralph is probably one of the best guides for showing it off. Please don't say "if" you return to Portugal but WHEN. There are still so many gorgeous hills and... More

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.
