Great trip

"I absolutely loved it. Our tour guide was Sandra, she was very nice and had rich knowledge. She let us have time to walk around to take pictures in each of the places we went to! I loved that we went at our pace. we weren’t rushed at all and we took our time! I’m very happy that we did a private tour instead of a group tour. I would definitely do a private tour with this company. We left around 8am and came back around 4pm. I would definitely recommend this tour if your looking for a fun all day tour. They gave us cold water, extra masks, and even WIFI in the car!! These people are so kind and nice!! We even got dropped off and picked up at our hotel!! 5/5 stars!!"

Great way to spend a day

"Luis was a wonderful guide. He was very knowledgeable about the history and stories of the areas we explored and was more than happy to answer any questions we had along the way.
Additionally, No Map Tours was very responsive throughout the booking process and worked with us on pickup/dropoff location."

"Luis Oliveira was our amazing guide on this tour. His English is excellent and his knowledge of history, great—he knows how to tell good stories! Luis is a very safe driver—we felt so relaxed in the car with him. We appreciated the details: of trying his favorite pastry in Sintra, his delicious restaurant suggestion and his many stops for my photo takes ☺️. He went above and beyond to make our tour perfect for us, as we were interested in seeing specific neighborhoods, which we really appreciated. We highly recommend this tour with Luis!"

"I chose this guided tour as taking bus/train to Sintra and changing to local bus to reach each castle seemed too long and tiring...and i don't regret my choice!! only 20minutes in a confortable car, and we were there! We had Sandra, a super professinal and friendly guide, she knew every detail about Sintra and the castles, spoke in an English fluent but easy to understand. She took us also to a local lunch spot out of touristic area, the restaurant there was amazing, nice terras and food. Good choice. bravo (^O^)v You pay a certain budget for the tour indeed but knowing all the history behind the visiting places makes your journey hundred times more interesting than just walking and taking pictures. So...recommended!!"

"The tour was everything I hoped for and more. Luis, my guide, was amazing. He was very knowledgeable, patient, and kind. I have back issues and he always offered help when I was getting out of the car, he even carried my bag for me! I took the private half-day tour and saw so much, his advice on where to go was just perfect, he showed me the main sites in Lisbon. It was a very pleasant experience, will definitely look for him again next time i'm in Lisbon!"

"My husband and I had a FABULOUS full day tour with Sandra and her husband Luis. Both are knowledgeable, fun to spend the day with, and have a great sense of humor:) We did the Sintra/Cascais tour, which was amazing, but they would be equally terrific for other tours. If you can afford the extra $, it was very convenient to have Luis drive and worry about parking, so Sandra could take us directly to the sites and get the tours going. (Honeymooners should ask for the Tour Romantica:)) Enjoy!"

We really enjoyed that our guide came in with us and gave a guided tour inside. My wife and I thourougly enjoyed it. Five stars!"

"We were lucky to have Sandra who was such a great guide. She picked us up promptly at our hotel in Lisbon, in a spotless Mercedes van with wifi and microphone (everybody in our group of three couples listened perfectly). At the Pena Palace, she already had our tickets and took us on a phenomenal inside-out guided tour. At Cascais, so glad we took her recommendation and had the best seafood meal of our lives. Amazing!"

Review of: Sintra and Cascais Private Day Trip
Greg S 01/2020 published in Tripadvisor
Vicenza, Italy

"WOW! If you're reading this review because you're considering booking this tour, my recommendation is to JUST DO IT! Sandra and Luis are the Dynamic Duo. Although Luis was the "driver" for the tour and Sandra was the Guide, they both are extremely well versed in the history of the area - and extremely personable too. There were four of us in the group, and we were picked up in a Mercedes mini-van at our hotel. Sandra was our guide, and she provided an outstanding overview and history of the sites we saw. She gave us plenty of time to explore and take pictures at every stop. Now here's a tip to consider: Book the tour with separate driver and guide like we did. Why? Because Sandra was free to escort us at each stop while Luis focused on locating parking spots along the route. It's the most efficient use of time and it was nice to have her with us when touring the Pena Castle. We enjoyed it and we think you will too."

"We highly recommend this tour with Sandra and Luis. It was outstanding. We were a group of four, and we were picked up in Mercedes mini-van at our hotel. Sandra was our guide, and used a headset with microphone to talk with us on the drive to our locations. She provided an outstanding overview and history of the sites we saw, and gave us plenty of time to explore and take pictures. We opted for the tour with separate driver and guide and so glad we did. Sandra escorted us everywhere, while Luis was able to deal with the parking. An efficient use of time and it was nice to have her with us when touring the Pena Castle. Well worth the money. Highly recommend!"

"We did a private day trip with Luis to Sintra and Cascais. The whole day was great, despite the rain. Luis was a great guide, very knowledgeable and personable. We went into Pena Palace and really enjoyed that he came in with us and gave a guided tour. A lot of the tour companies we researched only take you and do not go in with you. A good balance between a guided tour and free time to explore throughout the day. We also went to downtown Sintra, Cabo da Roca and Cascais for lunch. Highly recommend to anyone doing a day trip from Lisbon!"

"We recently took a private tour of Sintra Palace and a visit to Cascais. No Map Tours was quickly responsive to our emails, and accommodated all of our needs for the tour, including car seats. Our tour guide and driver, Luis Oliveira could not have been friendlier or more knowledgeable about the areas we visited and their history. He was also very flexible with the needs of our small children. We had so much fun, and also learned a lot! Highly recommend No Map Tours!"

"We met Sandra and Luis last year for several tours -- they are THE BEST! I sent some friends to them when they travelled to Lisbon in May -- and last week, I was thrilled to return to Lisbon and meet Sandra for a great tour of Setubal and Evora. You will feel like you are with old friends. It's like the "untour" tour-- like your Portugese cousins are showing you around."

"Reached out to No Map Tours for a private tour of Tomar, Batalha and Alcobaça as the “usual” day trips to the area did not cover all three and tend to include places not on our agenda. We’re able to work out arrangements and payment without a hitch and Sandra arrived at our hotel early for what proved to be a highlight of our trip to Lisbon. Sandra was professional in all respects and very knowledgeable and informative about Portugal and its history. Her English is excellent and she was very adaptable to our requests, priorities. Everything was according to program and we would happily book another excursion with No Map Tours."

It was worth every Euro we paid to have a knowledgeable guide pick us up directly from our hotel and take us to each of the sites. Our guide Luis was knowledgeable and kind, making every minute of our journey as comfortable and interesting as possible. Should we find ourselves in Lisbon again, we would definitely book another tour."

His English is very good and he was able to answer all my questions. A well thought out itinerary, enough time everywhere we visited without feeling pressured. It was nice to do it at our pace and not be at the mercy of a group. Organized and professional. Highly reccomend this group and Luis especially."

Absolutely Fantastic Day with Sandra

"My husband and I had a full day private tour of Sintra and Cascais with Sandra on November 6, 2019. It was one of our favorite days during our 6-day trip traveling through Portugal. Sandra picked us up early at our hotel so we could be among the first visitors to Palacio Nacional de Peña. On our drive to the palace in her impeccably clean car, she provided detailed historical background information that really helped us enjoy our visit so much more. She also accompanied us for about half our our time there to continue our education, and then gave us another hour to walk the grounds on our own. We then enjoyed a trip down the hill to explore the charming town of Sintra where we shopped and enjoyed coffee and pastry at Piriquita. We loved our brief stop at Cabo da Roca to enjoy the views of the rugged coastline and then continued on to Cascais where we had an incredible lunch and wandered the streets of this charming seaside town. Finally, Sandra drove us back to our hotel and told us more interesting stories and history as we drove. She was a perfect guide, very friendly and helpful but not overly intrusive. Her English is excellent so there were no difficulties in communication. This private tour was worth every penny we spent on it and we would recommend No Map Tours and this tour in particular to anyone traveling in the Lisbon area!"

WOW! Best guide and tour experience EVER!
Review of: Sintra and Cascais Private Tour
Derek 10/2019 published in Tripadvisor

"Luis Oliveira requested that we begin out tour very early ... we soon realized why. Luis arrive in a new car with a big sunroof, and off we went. Luis started providing us with pertinent facts about various sights we were driving by. We made it to the castle of Pena and we were virtually at the front of the line ... the early departure paid off. Luis provided just the right amount of history.
Quick drive (Luis is a very safe and courteous driver) to Cabo da Roca, Luis gave us a short history lesson then we walked around and took pics.
On to Cascius ... beautiful little city.
Back our front door of the hotel. Fantastic day. Thank you Luis"

"We were a party of 5 who took this private No Map Tours excursion to Sintra and Cascais. Sandra, our driver/guide provided a running commentary en route to Sintra.
We were picked up at 8:15 so that we arrived at Pena Palace before it got crowded. We were able to enter Pena Palace without standing in line as she provided pre-purchased tickets for both Palace entry and the shuttle from the parking lot. She accompanied us through our Palace visit providing a wealth of historical information. After our Palace visit she dropped us at the town square with instructions where to find the famous "Pillow Pastry" and shops to visit. She took us on a guided excursion up the coast to Cascais where we had a fabulous seafood lunch - the Tiger Prawns were particularly inviting. She dropped us back at our AirBnb after an 8 hour day which was the perfect amount of time. So nice to have a private tour which actually didn't cost much more than a semi-private tour. Highly recommend No Map Tours for this experience and Sandra was the BEST!"

"Sandra was terrific about communicating prior to our meeting for the tour. My husband and I met early on a Sunday morning. Luis was our very personable driver. Getting to Sintra just when the palace opened was great as we had no lines. On the ride from Lisbon we heard much about the history of Portugal. We had many general questions about life in Portugal which resulted in interesting conversation with Sandra. She accommodated our desire to visit a site not on the tour. We decided to cut some time out of or visit to Cascais and that was fine for everyone. She directed us to the best patiserie in Sintra for snack. On to the cliffs and lighthouse and then lunch in Cascais. We appreciated time alone for lunch and exploring a bit. They were both highly personable and knowledgable and the day was memorable. We highly recommend this tour."

A Wonderful Day With Sandra and Luis
Tim 09/2019 published in Tripadvisor
Charlottesville, Virginia

"I explained our hopes and priorities in emails with Sandra and left the rest to her. She managed to get a lot into our 7+ hours of time in port. She warned us that, since we could not get started before 0900, getting an inside tour of the Pena Palace would be impossible without standing in line. So, she purchased tickets for an outside tour of the palace. By the time we could get to the palace the lines to get inside were enormous. We would have spent well over an hour of our limited time in port standing there. Instead, Sandra gave us a throughly excellent and informative tour of the exterior of the castle. The place is spectacular.
Then we went back down to the town of Sintra and had the chance to walk around and shop with thousands of other tourists. We’d expressed an interest in learning about Port, so Sandra took us to a small wine shop where we proceeded to taste at least 8 different ports — one was an 1815 vintage which retailed for $3000 a bottle. We learned a lot. We drank a lot. And we spent a lot (no-not on the $3000 bottle.).
Next, we were off to Cascais for a nice lunch and quick look at the town. Then a return to Lisbon on the coast road. Upon arriving in Lisbon, we got quick looks at several of the iconic sites before Luis masterfully negotiated the traffic and returned us to our ship.
Sandra and Louis are smart, knowledgeable and great companions. I recommend their services in the strongest possible terms."

Lilia Carabine 09/2019 published in Tripadvisor

"Luis and Sandra provided us with one of the most enjoyable tours we have taken in a long time.
As a tour guide, Sandra was extremely knowledgeable of Sintra's history and its castles. She provided such a vivid description of many details, making it almost possible to travel back in time!
In addition, Sandra's suggestions for a taste of Portuguese food and some shopping in Cascais were right on target!
Luis' driving skills, were admirable considering the many narrow and crowded roads we went thru.
We ABSOLUTELY recommend this duo for your private tour of Sintra and Cascais."

"We are a family of 3, with an 11 year old. We spent a wonderful day with Luis to tour Sintra and Cascais. Luis provided the perfect amount of detail about each of the sites. His restaurant recommendations were great. His calm and welcoming demeanor made for an enjoyable afternoon. He also did well to engage my son throughout the day, including a gelato shop recommendation! We highly recommend Luis and this private tour. This tour is great if you seek a private guided experience. I did not feel the need for the second guide, but if you are not comfortable on your own walking around in a small town, then you may opt for that selection. English has been widely spoken in the sites we visited."

"It took us more than thirty hours door to door to get to Lisbon from L.A. due to late flights, misconnections, and a jet engine that wouldn’t start. And to add insult to injury, our luggage didn’t arrive when we finally did. But bright and early the next morning we met our guide Sandra and her driver husband, Luis for our full day visit to Sintra and Casca, and suddenly all was good again.
Sandra is a terrific guide. Her English is great, her personality sunny, her historic knowledge off the charts. We really enjoyed our tour of the castle in Sintra; Sandra timed our pickup so we would be among the first people to arrive there, which resulted in us avoiding the gigantic lines we encountered when we left. But the highlight of the day was Cascais; we hope to come back soon for an extended beach holiday there. It’s a wonderful town.
Our day with Sandra and Luis was, in short wonderful... topped only by our baggage finally showing up at our hotel shortly after our tour ended."

The day was well planned out and their strategy of getting to the Pena Palace early was spot on as the lines became enormous very quickly. Pacing was good, their vehicle was immaculate and comfortable for 4 people. Both of them were obviously well educated and love their job and the sites we visited. Thanks for a wonderful day!"

Her presentations had the perfect mix of humor and interesting facts about history and art/architecture. She was very accommodating to our requests and had a great suggestion for lunch. It was well worth the money spent and we really wish we had booked her for our previous day trip to Sintra. Thanks so much for fantastic day!"

"We spent a wonderful day today on a private tour with Sandra and Nelson to the Palace at Sintra and the surrounding town, plus Cabo de Roca (western most point in Europe), and Cascais. What a great day. Sandra timed it perfectly so we beat the crowds at the palace. She gave us an incredibly informative tour of the history of the site and the Portuguese monarchy. There was also time for us to walk around on our own. We had some great photo ops before the crowds came in and didn’t have to rush. We then proceeded to the town of Sintra where Sandra recommended an amazing pastry shop and again let us wander on our own. In Cabo de Roca she made sure our valuables were secured, as this is a big pick pocket area. It was a great and windy view! Finally we drove down the coast to Cascais. Sandra gave us three restaurant recommendations for lunch and one for gelato, then gave us time to meander through the town. Everything was at our pace, no rush. Finally we drove back along the coast into Lisbon. All in all, a great day with a very informative host. She welcomed all kinds of general questions about Portugal. She is fabulous, and Nelson is great as well. He is a ver safe and friendly driver. Strongly recommend!!"

"We spent a day with Sandra as she guided us through the royal castles of Sintra, the seaside town of Cascais, and Cabo da Roca. Throughout the trip, she filled us in on the history, culture, and current events in and around the different sites we visited. She is deeply knowledged, engaging, and caring (we traveled with a 83-year old family member). Since we were also big foodies, we gave us great suggestions for both dessert and lunch whenever we stopped. And no, her restaurant choices were not some commission-based tourist traps. They were solid local favs. She was also a great planner, making sure we arrive in time at certain locations to avoid crowds and that we get the most of our time at each location. All in all, Sandra was amazing and we were really glad she was our guide in Lisbon."

"Luis picked us up as agreed and off we headed on a lovely trip to the Pena Palace in Sintra, which that day was unusually shrouded in fog. This did not dampen our spirits in the least. Luis is a fabulous guide, very knowledgeable, with a delightful dry sense of humour and an excellent mastery of English! He can manouevre the narrowest roads and tightest parking spaces and never get ruffled! Luis is very accommodating and adapts to the customer”s wishes whenever feasible. Following the visit of the beautifully eclectic Palace, we arrived at the old walled town of Sintra with its quaint little stores and the best pastry shop this side of heaven - Casa Piriquita with its mouth-watering “Travesseiros”. Next was the rugged and sandy coastline past Guincho Beach down to Cascais with Luis pointing out all the highlights along the way. At Cascais we had a delicious seafood lunch and strolled through the old town, picking up some Portuguese tiles and other items. Estoril was next along the route of the Portuguese Riviera. Luis indicated the grand old homes with their storied past and the casino which inspired Ian Fleming’s Casino Royale. Returning to Lisbon along the banks of the Tejo, he gave us other sightseeing tips and ideas.
We definitely had a lovely, informative and fun tour with Luis.
Muito Obrigadas!!"

"Luis and Sandra did a splendid job giving my family and I a tour. They were very knowledgeable and they had a great sense of humor! They went over and beyond catering to my family and I's needs and am sure they do the same for other tourists as well! This Fatima tour is one of a kind & highly recommended, just like the tour guides, Luis & Sandra."

"Sandra and Luis were a great team as guide and driver. Sandra was very knowledgeable and gave just the right amount of information. We were picked up on time, got to the Pena Palace early before the crowds. We felt well taken care of and very safe. I highly recommend them both!"

"We were fortunate as a group of 4 to secure the service of Sandra & Louis as our tour guides today.
The depth of Sandra’s knowledge in both the history and architecture of Lisbon is undoubtedly excellent and no matter what questions we asked they were answered extensively.
I would have no hesitation in recommending their services to anyone wanting to know more about the city of Lisbon."

"What a wonderful day we had with Sandra and Louis. Right from the beginning it was easy to deal with No Map Tours.
Communication was clear and reminders sent. We were picked up early to beat the rush at Pena Palace, which we’re glad happened. The tour and information was terrific. We then went to old Sintra. We were taken to the most westerly point in continental Europe, this was wonderful and views spectacular.
Cascais was very interesting and we enjoyed and great lunch.
All of this was enjoyed with Louis driving and talking and Sandra giving us interesting information. The small Mercedes van was so comfortable and with only myself, my husband, our son and daughter in law on the tour it was very intimate.
Great tour."

"This review was long due... We visited Lisbon in March 2019 end and had prebooked 3 tours with No Maps from Mumbai. Our contact person was Sandra. We planned the Sintra Cascais private tour, Nazare Obidos Convent of Christ Day tour and Evora Setubal Private tour. All of our three days of experience with Sandra was absolutely fantastic. She was extremely helpful and knowledgeable in conducting the tours. Also there was always this personal touch given at times of planning food stops, as there were some vegetarian eaters in our group. So all in all she ensured that all of us were comfortable throughout. Even when we had plans for a 2 day trip to Porto, she helped us in booking train tickets and also a one way drop by road at the eleventh hour. I would definitely recommend them on your visit to Lisbon if you want a hassle free near comprehensive experience of exploring in and around Lisbon."

"We have done 5 days' private tour with No Map Tours in Lisbon.
Sandra and Luis are amazing and we learnt a lot of Portuguese history; culture and cuisine from them (may not remember the history part but sure on the food/wine part - will never forget the Cataplana and pastries of Belem) !
Their Van/ Car was very clean.
Sintra and Cascais - Pena Palace/ park is a must ! We should have few days here covering all the Sintra Pena park...
Obidos; Tomar Convent of Christ; Monasteries of Batalha and Alcobaca has taken our breath away!
The Manueline window at Convent of Christ is a magnificent art piece ! And the history on Knights Templar was amazing ...
My husband and I highly recommend all the private tours with Sandra and Luis !"

"We spent the day exploring the beautiful world of Sintra with Sandra and Louis. Enchanting castles, mystical well, crashing waves and a charming ocean side town. What a perfect ending to our time in Portugal. We highly, highly, highly recommend No Map Tours. The experience was excellent from start to finish. One of the best private tours we have had. Thank you Sandra and Louis"
