I booked my Sintra and Cascais tour with Around Lisbon, a decision that I would recommend anyone looking for a memorable and insightful experience. While it can be nerve wrecking to book a tour in another country and not know if it’ll match your expectations, I can guarantee you that Around Lisbon will not disappoint. Almost immediately after booking they emailed to confirm the tour, and pick up location and time. They maintained a sense of professionalism and eased my mind about the trip. The tour itself, led by John, was fun, unforgettable, and knowledgeable. He was able to explain the history of the places we were visiting with detail, while also allowing for plenty of time for us to explore on our own. He was very accommodating with our interests during the trip. And was a great conversationalist with plenty of noteworthy recommendations, such as places to visit and eat, that only a local could offer. Overall, an unforgettable experience with Around Lisbon - visiting the highlights of Sintra and Cascais and meeting new people!

We generally take these trips independently but only having one day we opted for a guided tour. We were very happy with our experience from the minute we were collected at our hotel until we were dropped off eight hours later.
Our guide was well informed, entertaining, an excellent driver and flexible with the group. I have no hesitation recommending this tour.
