You can choose between visiting the gardens and park of the Palace or the whole property, even though at peak seasons we don't recommend this for Cruise customers as it is usually very crowded inside. We can skip the lines to buy the tickets for you but you will still have to wait in line to enter the actual Palace.

WOW! This excursion was fantastic, but mostly because of my guide David! As someone who has traveled to all 7 continents, I can honestly say that he is the best in the business! My small window of 2 days in Lisbon didn't allow much time. I was on a stopover en route to Cape Verde Islands, AND, ...

Leading up to our recent trip to Portugal we were lucky enough to stumble upon David from ‘What to do in Portugal’. From Australia I worked with David (over email and WhatsApp) to customise two day-trips for our first visit to Portugal. His knowledge and communication were second to none; I’d go ...

November 2019

David drove us all over Sintra pointing out the history, geography and culture. He was completely flexible and extremely knowledgeable. When one of the palaces was completely packed with other tourists, we skipped it to see other things. We mentioned that Portugal had a newly approved UNESCO Wo...

David was kind and flexible from the start of our day. One of the benefits of booking a private tour is that you are not bound by anyone else's schedule. We even got to stop at the flea market in Alfama as it was a Saturday! If doing it again, I would research the palace and Moorish castle as w...

July 2019

As part of our Europe cruise we stopped in Lisbon for a day. I organized this shire excursion with David and had lots of questions. David was amazing in answering every question and concern I had by WhatsApp within minutes. The tour itself was done by Michelle and it was perfect in any way. Miche...
