A great day trip with our informative guide Joanne. We had enough time to tour the castle and town of Sintra. The ride out to and along the coast was beautiful. This was one of the highlights of our trip to Lisboa

The castle is obviously stunning. I personally think the trip could be shortened if it didn't go to the western point of Europe. I generally liked the trip, though I wish the guide had gone through the castle with us to explain things further.
