We hired a taxi to visit this lovely place 1/2 hour away from Lisbon center. Our taxi diver was speaking a good English. So he was like our guide and to be honest he did perfectly well. Sintra is a fortress on top of a high mountain. It has a heavy Moorish ( Arap influence) on its wondeful architecture. Scenery is also beautiful! There is a nice cafe terrace in the venue for refreshments (If you can refrain yourself from looking around and taking pictures...) If you are staying 2 days in Lisbon, spare the second day for Sintra, then...

Our hotel contacted Cool Tours for a private tour of Sintra. We had spent a week in the South of Portugal and really wanted to focus on Sintra and not the surrounding beaches. Cool tours sent Andrea, our personal tour guide for the day. We told Andrea what we had already seen of Portugal, what we were interested in, and after her recommendations for the day, had a great time. My daughter and I were her first "Private Tour" and she did a fabulous job. Personable, knowledgable, and generally pleasing to spend the day with. Andrea took us to a great local restaurant for lunch where Victor, the waiter, entertained us immensely with his charm. This was the last day of a three week tour of Europe and it was the perfect way to end the vacation. Thank you, Andrea.

The Golden Triangle Private Tour with Gonzalo - A perfect day to remember.
With such good reviews on tripadvisor, decided to try a full-day trip from Lisbon with my girlfriend. Gonzalo arrived at our hotel 15min before pick-up time, with a great smile on his face. The car/van was clean and comfortable and driving always safe during the day.

Gonzalo, the owner, is a passionate and very pleasant guide and we loved to visit Sintra with him. We thought he would let us get inside the castles alone but he always guided us inside and explained all the histories behind each visited place. Don't miss regaleira and cabo da roca, but everything in Sintra is really magic.

We loved the restaurant he selected for us, a family owned business with fresh and delicious food, and was great to have a flexible private tour at our own pace and we never felt rush. The tour ended 3h later than what we agreed and Gonzalo never charged any extra.

A wonderful experience to remember.

Gonzalo picked all 11 of our family up at our hotel. We had a wonderful, leisurely day primarily in the village of Sintra, then through Cascais and Estoril. Gonzalo was very knowledgeable, particularly about the history of Portugal, which made it much more interesting.
We enjoyed our day with him so much that we cancelled a previously scheduled tour, and booked him for the following day to show us around Lisbon.
We highly recommend Gonzalo for any tour of Sintra, Lisbon, and the surrounding areas.

Came on a trip with a big family of 11, and had Gonzalo scheduled for an all day tour of Sintra and Cas Cais. Very nice that we were able to set our own pace and stopped at everything that we wanted to as he pointed out everything interesting. Enjoyed our all day tour so much that we cancelled a tour we had with someone else and rescheduled with Gonzalo for the next day! Even with a group of 11, he made sure that none of us felt left out and we all had a very good time with Gonzalo. Could not recommend him enough if you plan on touring Lisbon!
