    Sintra was one of the highlights of our Lisbon vacation. Pena Palace is amazing, and the town is quaint and lovely. This was an excellent tour! Highly recommended!

    Pena palace is a must-do in Lisbon. Tour takes the hassle out the multiple forms of transport neccesaary to get there -and adds some other good sights. Would have liked more time at the palace and less on some of the other stops.
