Book Sandra for Sintra!!!
Feb 2020 • Couples
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!

The BEST Private Tour in Lisbon
Jan 2020
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.

Sintra and Cascais tour with driver and guide
Jan 2020
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!

Day trip from Lisbon
Jan 2020 • Solo
Our guide, Sandra, was very knowledgeable and personable. She added so much to our tour of the Pena Palace and the towns of Sintra and Cascais. Their was time allotted to do some exploring on your own. Food recommendations for mid morning snack and lunch were suburb. The driver, Luis, made you feel comfortable and the van was very clean.

Great Day Trip!
Nov 2019
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!

Had a great family experience!
Dec 2019
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!

Great trip!
Luis, our guide picked us early so we could avoid the lines at the Pena Palace. Luis is very knowledgeable and provided a great commentary on what we were seeing. 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
Nov 2019
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!
