The guide Rodrigo was very nice from start to finish. He told us very curious things. Inside the Quinta da Regaleira everything was perfect with all the history and curiosities that he told us. As a downside is that the tickets to the Quinta are not included and it was a surprise… if we had not bought them during the tour and we would have refused, we very much doubt that the tour lasted 3 hours, since we spent much of the time inside the Quinta.

Me enamore más de Sintra, María la guía fue muy amable y simpática nos explico todo con mucho detalle y a pesar de que el tour terminaba a las 18:30 no tuvo ninguna prisa y se quedó con nosotros hasta más tarde de las 19:00 para que lo viésemos todo al detalle, sin duda volvería a repetir
