António & Gui
Me (António) and Gui are 2 very good school friends who grew up in Sintra and decided to come up with what we consider the perfect full day itinerary to visit Sintra. We have been doing it for a good amount of time which allows us to combine our experience as tour guides with the local knowledge of having lived here our whole lifes. The whole idea behind what we consider the perfect itinerary of Sintra is to show our guests the different amazing faces of this beautifull part of Portugal - The historic center and monuments area, the quaint little villages of the coastline and the natural wonders of both the coastline and forest of Sintra. To do this we've come up with an itinerary that includes both the most popular spots and the hidden gems and corners just for ourselves. As guides we are able to skip the monuments lines.
