Whilst it was difficult to get hold of the guys due to a problem with their phones, when we eventually booked our quad bike and buggy tour we were very happy with the experience. The two guides are very friendly, experienced, informative and always safety-minded. The locations are amazing, especially when we reached the coastline part near the fort above Abano and Guincho beaches. Amazing setting!
Initially we thought the price was a little steep but considering the amount of work that goes into preparing everything and keeping the machinery in good working order I have to say the price is fair.
We would definitely do this again, possibly taking another route...

We booked The Sintra Mountainbike Tour and got picked up by the tourleader Arlindo at the Cascais train station. He is a very nice guy and kept us entertained with interesting things about Lisbon, nature, sport, politics and whatever from the moment we entered the van until he let us off after the tour. We enjoyed this a lot because of the advantages we took from all the good advises he had for us concerning places to visit, food to try and much more. He is also very open minded and likes to get to know his customers as well as their origin and background.
The mtb-tour itself was very nice, too. Although we had bad luck with the weather since it was raining half of the day the tourguide did a great Job in taking us to the best places in mountains and on the best trails you could do by the conditions we unfortunately had. He also set us up with some bikewear for rainy weather what definitely saved us the trip.
We can strongly recommend this tour to everyone who likes to see and discover the beautiful nature around Lisbon by bike. You won't regret it in any way.

Myself and my boyfriend booked a full day mountain biking tour with a guide. Although challenging at times it was a fantastic experience and we got to see some of the 'real' Portugal.

Will definately go back and do another tour - but until I am a bit more confident I will be sticking to the half day tour!! My boyfriend, not a expert mountain biker, but very fit, loved the entire experience and can't wait to go back again.
