Received a confirmation and ticket from the tour guide. Waited to be picked up the morning of for 30 minutes. Called the tour operator and was informed they canceled the tour. (FOURTH tour to cancel on me). The operator told me he sent me a cancellation (never received it) and that they would refund me (also haven’t received the refund). I was told that there was a minimum of 4 people for the tour which is why they canceled. Even though I was still able to book the tour for one person. I asked if I could pay a little more to still have a driver/tour and he said this was not possible. All of the drivers declined to pick me up. The operator suggested I take an Uber and try to get an Uber driver to be my tour guide. I tried this. The Uber got me there (he got very lost) and didn’t speak English. So I was on my own trying to navigate the countryside. Needless to say I am not happy with the experience at all.

Enjoyed our visit to Sintra to visit the castle and explore the gardens and other trails in the area surrounding the castle. Enjoyed seeing some of the Portugal coastline and beach towns. Would probably not taken the time to do this trip on our own so we were glad we booked this tour.

Our experience was amazing. Rui is very friendly and caring with his guests. He took us to a local spot for food in Cascais and that was a nice treat as well! We never felt rushed or uncomfortable at all. I highly recommend his services. Cascais and Sintra are both Beautiful places.
