Antonio picked us up from our hotel and drove us out to Sintra so we could explore the palaces. Antonio is very generous with his time and knowledge. I would highly recommend this tour for anyone interested in visiting Sintra and the history of the region. Antonio is very kind and charismatic and we spent a very pleasurable day in his company. He took very good care of us all day and we appreciated his recommendation for lunch as well.
