Our trip to Sintra was a wonderful experience. The weather was perfect and Miguel, our guide was extremely courteous and made us a part of his great knowledge of the places and their history. He gave us enough time everywhere and showed us special positions and prospects, he entertained us well and we were a good team with other participants. Miguel's English was perfect and he was able to tell us a great deal about the history of the country, the people and the individual places. The tour was very comfortable and we could fully enjoy it. We would love to do a tour with Miguel again. Peter and Dana, Germany team ;-)
