This was my second tour with Viator first one in Florence, Italy and this tour was way better than i expected! Personally, the experience boils down to fellow travelers and more importantly, the guide. Our guide for the day, Mr. Miguel Safara was just awesome. We started the day slightly later than expected but he was very patient, allowing us to finish our breakfast before embarking on the tourCascais - Cabo da ROca - Sintra Along the way, he made a couple of pit stops which are not covered within the itinerary. At each stop, he took the time to explain the history of the location and gave us some time to take pictures. En route to Cascais, Miguel pointed out to many points of interest monuments, buildings to provide us insight. The scenery to Cascais was very beautiful as it was a coastal drive. At Cascais, it started to pour but Miguel was prepared and provided us with umbrellas. We were given some time to walk around and Miguel pointed us to a cafe which serves very good pastel de nata. As it was raining, we headed straight to the cafe and was treated to piping hot pastel de natas which were heavenly. We spent more time taking pictures at the pier before Miguel brought us to a nearby scenic location - Devil's mouth, which was a structure created by erosion from the waves. Thereafter, we comtinued to the highlight of the trip, the Cabo da Roca. Miguel brought us to his favorite spot for pictures and gave us time to explore, which was much appreciated. Thereafter, we moved to Sintra where we had lunch at a recommended restaurant at Sintra Square. We bought tickets to visit the Gardens of Pena Palace and we had a very good time hiking to the High Cross and spending time at the terrace of the palace. This marked the end of a very enjoyable day tour which i would very much recommend to take in a lot the charm and sights Portugal has to offer.
Our tour guide/driver was the big difference which made a good day tour into a fabulous experience. Miguel Safara our tour guide was very knowledgeable of the area and its history. We highly recommend the tour and specially and if you are lucky enough to get Miguel as your guide!
