    It was a wonderful tour, the highlight of which for me was seeing Cabo da Roca. The guide was very professional and friendly, the driver was excellent, and the bus was comfortable. It was well worth the cost. I have taken Viatours in Italy and France and knew that this would be a great day trip.

    This is one of the ‘must do’ tours of southern Portugal. The guide was really good and explained about all the sites in some detail.

    Excellent tour! Our guide was quite eloquent in several languages she kept all informed in English, German, French and Portuguese! The tour of the palace was excellent, would have liked a little more time in Sintra, if possible. All-in-all – highly recommend this tour!

    This was a wonderful tour and I would recommend it to travelers to Portugal. The Sintra Palace was an amazing place to visit – very beautiful and historic. Also the visit to the coast and the most western point in Europe was interesting. The drive through and stop in Cascais was beautiful as well.

    By far, the best tour I did during my trip to Europe. I will strongly recommend it. Cabo da Roca is breathtaking!

    The scenery was beautiful and the tour was good. I thought I booked an English tour, but it turned out that since there were three languages on the the bus, we had to hear the same things in two other languages.

    This was a pleasant trip outside of Lisbon. The tour guide was very friendly and knowledgable. She unfortunately had to repeat everything in three different languages. I signed up for an English speaking tour.
