Amazing Tour and Great Guide
Jun 2021
We had the pleasure of having Filipa take us on this tour. Of course the palace and sites were amazing and beautiful, but the best part was our guide. She was extremely knowledge, friendly, and just a great person. She went above and beyond, even giving suggestions for the rest of our time in Lisbon. I wish we could give more than 5 stars, best tour guide I have had in Europe, Asia, or America. Pick this company and tour!

A must while in Lisbon
Dec 2020
I think going on this road trip was the best thing during my 3 day trip to Lisbon.
Sintra is a hidden treasure that is best to do with a company as it can be complicated to go on your own. We had fun with Andre and communicating about culture, tourism, art, and most importantly our love to travel. Sintra is very colorful and has so many things to do. I was happy with my choice and If I go to Lisbon again, I would definitely pick this company for another day trip in Portugal.

A memorable day with an amazing tourguide (Highly recommended)
Dec 2020
What an amazing day it was with Andre. It's my second time in Lisbon and it felt like the first thanks to the amazing information, hidden spots, and great company of andre. We were picked from our hotel in a spotless van that is very comfortable for this rich day of discovery. We visited several palaces of the beautiful village Sintra and had enough time to take pictures, enjoy the views, and explore the surroundings. A touring trip with this company is a must as it's perfectly priced according to the different things that you will be visiting and most importantly avoiding the stress in planning it all. I recommend it 100%.
P.S: The trip was very safe as Andre was wearing his masks and gel was available all the time.

Would not let us visit Pena Palace even though it was possible
We recently did the small group tour to Sintra from Lisbon with the expectation of visiting Pena Palace. We were only told at 1am the night before that the road to the palace is closed to cars, but the email said that we could either walk there or adjust the itinerary to visit other sites.

When Valter picked us up in the morning he told us the the road has been closed for over a month and didn’t give us any options to visit. I even asked him if we could still somehow see the palace but he avoided the question and instead took us to 2 other sites in Sintra, a beach nearby for lunch, Cabo da Roca and Cascais.

While the day was still enjoyable we were very disappointed that we weren’t even given the option to tour the one site we came to Sintra to see. After some research that evening I discovered that buses and tuk tuks are still going up to the palace so it would have been possible. It was also sneaky of the company to only let us know that the road was closed at 1am the night before when they’ve known this information for a month. Clearly they were worried we would cancel.

Valter mentioned that covid has impacted their company this year, which we are sympathetic to, but covid has affected everyone and this is no excuse to not be upfront with customers.

Thank you for taking the time to review your tour with Valter. We apologize for any inconvenience that the road closures might have caused; however, we cannot be held accountable for something we cannot control. We want to clarify that the road has not been closed for a month; your guide explained all of this: we have fire alerts that last the entire summer season, and we act according to the information we receive from the Sintra's City Hall and the Mayor of Sintra. The data is updated daily or every three days. There are two types of fire alerts: one that allows public transportation to pass by and another that effectively closes the road's access. On the day of your tour, the second alert was in place. Only firetrucks, civil protection, and people that live in the mountain could drive up the hill, so the only option was to walk up the mountain, as we informed you in the email and as your guide told you in the day of the tour. We know it is quite a hike, but that would be possible to do, as it was the only way to access the Pena Palace that day. However, when your guide presented you with the option of visiting a different palace instead of the Pena Palace, you accepted. Upon your research, you must also discovered out that, for the past weeks, tuk-tuk drivers have been in protest precisely because they can't access the mountain due to these roadblocks and last-minute warnings. You can access all the information on the Sintra's City Hall web page or their Facebook page. Never have we misled our customers into anything to avoid cancellations, and we are always upfront with our guests. We were not worried that you'd cancel as we abide by our terms and conditions and our customers' well being. We take our values very seriously, and if you do a bit of research on our company, you can see that. This is why we notified you, at 12:55 am outside our business hours, that the roadblock would take place on your tour day. And we did it as soon as we had information from the Mayor. We always do our best to provide our guests with a great experience, and we did so on your tour day. It is unfortunate to read that you still gave us a 2-star review, notwithstanding you had a good day. Best regards, Filipa

Clean, safe and fun!
Jul 2020 • Couples
Best tour of our trip so far! During this unprecedented time, Portuguese for a Day tours remain open during the COVID crisis. They adhere to the highest safety protocols by following the Clean & Safe commitment (the Turismo de Portugal created a “Clean and Safe” stamp of approval to distinguish tourist activities which are compliant with hygiene and cleaning requirements for the prevention and control of COVID-19 and other possible infections). Masks were required to be worn at all times, and we were given a “COVID prevention gift bag” at the start of the tour (this consisted of hand sanitizer, mask and a lanyard). Group size was reduced significantly to ensure we were appropriately socially distanced inside the bus. As a result, we felt safe to enjoy the tour. The tour itself exceeded expectations! André was friendly, knowledgeable and went out of his way to make sure we had a great experience. The highlight of the tour was Sintra. He took us to Pena Palace and Quinta da Regaleira. We had plenty of time to explore both fully and André was always waiting at the designated meet up location on time and ready to answer any questions we had! We drove through Cabo da Roca, had lunch at a charming sea food restaurant on the beach at Praia das Maçãs, and stopped for ice-cream and a walk-around at Cascáis. This was a great experience during a challenging time. Andre and Portuguese for a Day provided a memorable and enjoyable tour without compromising our safety. I highly recommend this tour and company for anyone wanting to explore Portugal (both during and after COVID!)

" Wonderful and Memorable Tour and Amazing Tour Guide!"
Aug 2019
This was a wonderful tour of Sintra and the surrounding area. Our group of six loved visting the Pena Palace, the Quinta da Regaleira Palace, Cabo da Roca and Cascais. The van was very comfortable and had AC. Our tour guide, Joao, was fantastic! He was very friendly and knowledgeable on Portugal's history. In addition, he was extremely accommodating to one of our travelers that was somewhat physically impaired. The time spent at each site was just right and the choice of restaurant for lunch in city center was perfect. The tour left us all with fond memories of the places we visited. I would highly recommend this tour! I promise, you won't be disappointed!

They are really fast responding to your questions or concerns. If you can book your tour with them, do it, you won’t regret it.

A Lovely Day!
Mar 2020
My daughter and I had a wonderful time on our day trip to Sintra and our guide was fun and informative. We appreciated that our first stop was Pena Palace at opening since that is the busiest location. Upon entry, we quickly scaled the hill and were able to get pictures without other people in them - yay! Time spent at each location was about right for what we were interested in doing/seeing. Our guide provided good suggestions for lunch while in city center.
