We loved so much our Tour!! What an amazing experience it has been and for this we have to sincerely thank Miguel, the driver/tour guide. He is a friendly man, very kind and professional, so patient with us! We have explored all of our stops looking at incredible and magic places with a bit of mystical atmosphere. Miguel have arranged perfectly the plan to allow us to spend our time at best, he's local and we felt his love and passion for those places, explained very well to us with such a rich storytelling. Thanks a lot Miguel, we would like to definetely recommend you! For last but not least the tour is very well organized and the car so comfortable. Thank you by Fabio and Jessica.

The private tour of Sintra and Cascais was a wonderful experience. My wife and I very much enjoyed it. Since it was a private tour we were able to make a few decisions on stop we wanted to skip, so we could have more time in others or substitute for other stops. Seeing the western coast all the way down to the south in Cascais was beautiful. Our guide was also very knowledgeable of everything we were visiting, so it gave a better perspective on things.

Getting picked up earlier which meant getting dropped off earlier helped with avoiding traffic on the roads and less amount of people in some stops.

We had a private tour with Gui as our Guide whom made our Sintra tour a memorable one. He’s really professional and was able to share the history of Portugal very well! We stopped by a beautiful beach for lunch. Restaurant served really good food (best octopus rice we tasted during our trip!). The time was well planned to visit the places planned of interest. We enjoyed chatting with Gui and appreciate his safe driving throughout. Glad we chose Jump in tours - thumbs up!

António was an amazing tour guide! Extremely personable and friendly. Made my wife and I comfortable from the moment we stepped into the van. As a local from Sintra, he knows all the best scenic areas that you wont get with a huge tour group. He gave us as much, or as little, time as we wanted in each location and let us customize the day exactly as we wanted. He is extremely knowledgeable with the history of each site. I would absolutely not hesitate to recommend this tour to anyone! You will not be disappointed!

We had an excellent day with Maria as our tour guide. We traveled with our toddler and she even arrived with a car seat. She was knowledgeable but not too pushy. There was so much to see and she was so flexible to go at our pace. It started raining at our visit to the Pena Palace and she was so accommodating as we decided to leave early. It was easily our best day during our stay in Lisbon. I would highly recommend this tour to anyone staying in Lisbon! I can’t imagine it could get much better!!!

Firstly we want to say that Sintra is beautiful and definitely worth a visit. We saw both the Pena palace and the Quinta da Regaleira. Both were absolutely gorgeous and situated on beautiful grounds for exploring and trekking. The negative review is for the tour company. Our guide, Pepa (Filipa), was very friendly and drove well. Aside from that, nothing else was right. We were expecting a guided tour with explanations of the history/ background of the sites but instead we were dropped off at the entrances and had to enter and explore on our own. The parks are very big and many times we were unable to find points of interest therefore losing a lot of time wandering around. In between the two parks we were driven to the beach for lunch at a very nice establishment. For a casual relaxing day we’d enjoy this beautiful restaurant but it took us more than two hours because the service was very slow. On top of that Pepa made reservations for us as she comes there a lot with all her customers yet when we’re arrived at 1:30 we were given a table in the hot scorching sun. We asked for an umbrella in which there were two unused ones about 25 yards away. The waiter told us no we couldn’t use them. Thinking that maybe they were broken we try to make do with our situation - asking if we could shift our table a bit to make use of a nearby umbrella. When Pepa arrived (after parking the vehicle) she saw our situation and went to ask the waiter to get us an umbrella. Again she was told no. Ten minutes later some other guests came sat down at a table with no umbrella and we saw the waiter brought the umbrella over to this new group. We then complained to the waiter, he finally grudgingly brought the second umbrella to us. Why weren’t we given it in the first place, specially since Pepa comes here almost everyday with customers? The food was very good but we ended up paying more than €200 for our group of 6! Did we need to spend so much on lunch for a day of sightseeing? The “tour” itself already cost us €330 for nothing more than a glorified Uber service. The drive home was passed through Cascais - just that - driving through what was explained as a Beverly Hills of Lisbon - rich area of beautiful homes. No further explanation of who lived where or any celebrity in particular was mentioned. So over all it was beautiful to visit but we could’ve done the trip on a bus/train or even Uber for a lot less money on our own. Bottom line is stay away from Viator in Lisbon!!!

Our guide Danilo was very friendly, informative, and punctual. We were traveling with our 2-year old son, and before the trip we weren't sure whether our son would be fussy during the day trip. However Danilo was very friendly and patient with kids, and our son liked him immediately. We really enjoyed our day trip! My only suggestion for improvement is the child car seat should be installed in the car prior to picking up the guests, instead of trying to figure out how to install the seat after meeting the guests.

The young man who drove us and guided our visit was professional and had a unique perspective as he grew up in Sintra. The castle is remarkable, the views are spectacular, and the well is a must-see in Sintra. The trip to the westernmost point was memorable. The place is very crowded, having a personal guide helped a lot.

Our guide/driver picked up our family (six adults - ages 22-58) where we were staying right on time, then off on a beautiful drive to explore old town of Sintra with Guilhermo relating the history along the way. We tailored our day to spend time at the Palacio da Pena where he guided our private tour, then a serene and windy drive down to the coast for lunch at a fabulous beachfront restaurant. We went through lovely Cascais on the return drive home. Gorgeous day in Sintra and Cascais with a wonderful guide!
