Really good guide and an extremely enjoyable tour of Sintra. He did a great job using Sintra to explain the story of the Portuguese monarchy and kept the whole day really interesting. Also, he very adroitly handled the uncertainty around the on-going railway strike and got us to/from Sintra seemingly effortlessly.
Jose was fantastic! So knowledgeable and very interesting! Enjoyable to be with
Estela was able to maintain everyone engaged in the tour. She had an impressive general culture background. We were especially surprised by her knowledge of Brazil, which is uncommon for Europeans to have in such an extended way. The stops in the tour were fantastic. The Quinta Regaleira was something we didn’t have high expectations for, but were left open mouthed by its beauty and uniqueness, especially the Mason past. We highly recommend visiting it! The symbolism hidden everywhere was one of the favorite things of the children who were impressed by how something so simple could mean so much. The Palace was also really pretty with its muslim architecture. It was unlike anything we had seen before in a royal residence.
