Owner description: Greenwalk is a tour operator with a slightly different approach. Our driving force is to ensure that Portugal becomes a great experience rather than a great visit to our customers. In the first place comes the deep knowledge of our country allowing us to provide access to unique spots in very different levels. All our guides are highly educated on the earth sciences field and very enthusiastic about the singularities of our culture being able to put on amazing perspectives of every spots, even the very touristic ones. And finally the variety of our services on different spots; during our trips we always offer walks, hikes, bike trails, off road or relaxing jeep tours, and on the coast line - surfing. Whatever are the tastes and physical conditions of our guests we can adapt and ensure that they'll enjoy Portugal to the fullest. Our customers can expect a very qualified and passionate team promoting nature contact, scientific and cultural knowledge and, of course, fun and relax.

“Magical historical tour around Sintra”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed May 27, 2014

After walking around without a specific destination, my parents and I decided to take a guided tour around Sintra. We went back to the train station where we met Mafalda. She explained us about the different tour options and we decided to visit the Chalet of the Countess d'Edla Chalet, the Pena National Palace and the Castle of the Moors. We walked through the gardens and on the Castle walls, visited the Palace while Mafalda gave us lots of details about everything we saw. Her knowlege about geology was great! Apart from all that, she also gave us some hints about Sintra itself and what to do the next day in Cascais and Belèm!

Mafalda, the Pasteis of Belèm are delicious!

“Brilliant day”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed April 30, 2014 via mobile

We arrived in Sintra by train from Lisbon uncertain how to get the best out of our day. We met Mafalda at the station and felt very privileged to have her as our guide for 3 hours. She showed us the best sights around Sintra. We walked through wonderful gardens and benefited greatly from her geological as well as historical knowledge. Thank you so much.

“Great intro to Sintra”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed February 23, 2014

We only had a day to see Sintra and didn't know what to go and see. We had caught the train from Lisbon and found Lidia from Greenwalk Tours at the station. We hired her and her jeep and had the most interesting day! Lidia was able to give us the geological background of the formations around Sintra as well as taking us to some of the most beautiful locations. We cannot recommend Lidia and Greenwalk tours highly enough!

“Topflight Tour”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed October 24, 2013

We wanted a tour to experience the beauty and nature features of the Serra de Sintra coastline. Lidia met us at the Sintra train station with an excellent 4WD vehicle and escorted us for 5 hours. She is expert and very friendly. Very reasonable price for the service and time.

“See Sintra with Greenwalk”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed June 27, 2013

We only had one day to spend in Sintra and were very fortunate to have found Lidia Sousa as our guide. Lidia approached us at the train station in Sintra and we were happy to hire her for a 4 hour tour. This turned in to an 8 hour tour as Lidia took us to places we would never have seen if we had been on our own. She also extended the tour to Cascais for a nominal extra charge. She explained the geology, the history and the environment that helped us to more appreciate the area. This is a combination driving and walking tour. The drive is by way of a jeep and includes some off road areas and the walking is at whatever level you feel comfortable with.
The tour was capped off with a visit to a local cafe where we got a taste of some fine Port wine and some incredible pastries!
We would highly recommend the services of Lidia and her team with Greenwalk. Thanks for a great experience!
