If you are looking for a fun way to tour Sintra or the surrounding areas - do not hesitate to book with Daniel Ponce! Our family of six adults spent 2.5 hours with him last week, touring Sintra - and it was one of the the highlights of our trip! Daniel is so friendly, and FUN and was so knowledgeable! We learned so much about the area during the tour, and he went out of his way to make sure we enjoyed ourselves, even bringing us treats from the area because the store that we would have stopped at was closed! My (adult) kids are still talking about it! Plus, Daniel went above and beyond helping me with train information, weather information and so much more. You won't be disappointed, Daniel is the real deal!

Brilliant tour with a brilliant guide. I highly recommend Daniel as your tour guide, he's as knowledgeable as he is passionate about this area. Friendly chap who made our visit to this special place even more special. During the tour several former guests he'd had earlier made a point of shouting hello and thanking him again for their tour, so I'm not alone in my view.

BIG SCAM !!! Ghosted after deposit paid !!!! We have booked a tour for the 31st of March, but after effecting the payment, Daniel ghosted us. The only option we had is to cancel the tour and book with someonelse. As of the time of writing this review, the refund for which we are entitled to, as we cancelled prior to 15 days of the tour date, was not yet processed and still did not hear anything from Daniel. We belive he is a scammer !!!!

A day on the tuk tuk in Sintra 6 of us booked an all day tuk tuk tour of Sintra and Cabo da Boca Cascais and the coast. It was an absolute marvellous adventure with our driver Pedro who Daniel set us up with. The history and the sights and the lunch were amazing. Highly recommend booking this day

Perfect private tour of Sintra Daniel Ponce was an amazing tour guide on an all day tour of Sintra in his electric tuk tuk. Sides come down and blankets are available if cold. Lunch was in an authentic Portuguese restaurant - we were the only tourists there. Daniels really knows the history and does a good job explaining everything. He was willing to take as many pics as we wanted. Highly recommend!

Amazing Tour Guide ..Daniel is awesome! Awesome Tuk Tuk Tour with Daniel! Our family of 4 had an amazing day touring Sintra and Cascais with Daniel from Yes, you deserve Tours. From the first point of contact a few weeks before our requested tour date to the day of our tour…the timeliness and professionalism with which Daniel engaged us was incredible! The tour itself was beyond amazing. We gave him free reign to plan our day and he did not disappoint. His knowledge, expertise and charisma was top notch! He infused us with his love for Sintra, sharing all the beautiful sites and history. From the iconic monuments, to touring the quaint town, lunch at a traditional family restaurant, hidden gems off the beaten path, a winery tour and everything else in between. He truly made our day magical ! Thank you Daniel for being an awesome tour guide !!

Amazing day in Sintra with Daniel of Yes you Deserve! When we were planning our great adventure of Sintra 1 name kept coming up with rave reviews Daniel Ponce of “Yes you deserve”. So happy we followed everyone’s lead and hooked up with him for our tour. The sights were awesome but without the narrative from Daniel it would have not been the same. His personality, wit, knowledge and humor made this trip unforgettable. He had our young adult daughters totally engaged with can be a bit difficult to say the least! The family restaurant only a local would know about was unbelievably good. Thank you Daniel for a day our family will never forget! — with Yes, you deserve by Daniel Ponce and Mike Coyne at Sintra, Portugal.

Amazing day Our day with Daniel was a highlight for the month my family spent with us in Portugal! We appreciated his enthusiasm, entertaining stories, and good planning. He was attentive to my Sister’s walking disability, and made sure we all had a memorable time.

An Unforgettable Day Our full day tour with Daniel was amazing! I was worried because one of my daughters has a health condition and to be honest, the teenagers didn’t want to spend all day in lines waiting. They want to see sites and take pictures! Daniel took us all over Sintra with the highlights being the Moorish Castle, Seteais Palace, Peninha Sanctuary, and views of Pena Palace and the National Palace of Sintra. We tried the most amazing pastries of Sintra and had the most delicious lunch we have ever experienced. At the end of our tour, Daniel drove us along the coast with a stop at Boca do Inferno before dropping us off in Cascais. This tour was the highlight of our first trip out of the United States with our teenage daughters. Daniel took so many pictures of our family and each of the girls which we also have not done in years. At the end of the trip, both girls had tears in their eyes because they didn’t want to leave their new friend. Thank you Daniel for our unforgettable day!

Sintra Magic Thank you, Daniel Ponce, for leading our family through the Sintra region with incredible guided tours of Pena Palace, Monserrate, the Sanctuary of Peninha and the road to Cascais. Plus a delicious lunch at Pensão Sisudo! Daniel magically helped us avoid the crazy crowds and kept our whole group, ages 14 to 80, smiling the whole way. Obrigado!

A Magical Day in Sintra Area and Cascais As I was planning our family of four trip to Portugal I knew we wanted to visit the Sintra mountains with it’s beautiful gardens and palaces. Do we do a self-tour with the buses and no guide or do we spend the day with someone who knows the area better than anyone else? Do not spend the time thinking about this…reach out to Daniel Ponce @ Yes, you deserve by Daniel Ponce!! It will be an experience that you will never forget. We worked with Daniel on the sites we wanted to see…Quinta de Regaleira, Monserrate Palace and Gardens, Cabo da Roca, fabulous views of Pena Palace and the Moorish Castle…just to name a few. He had special spots and stops along the way via his Tuk Tuk, including an amazing lunch. The day ended in Cascais, which was absolutely beautiful. We never ever could have done this by ourselves. He captured us in photo’s all along the tour as well. I made the right decision by asking Daniel to be our guide. It was a magical day in a magical place. Thank you Daniel Ponce!!!

Meilleure visite guidée de Sintra Quelle journée incroyable avec Daniel! Nous l’avons rejoint dans un beau petit café local Casa do preto avec un super bon café et des pâtisseries. Une journée parfaite avec peu de file d’attente, un ciel dégagé. Daniel connaît toute l’histoire de Sintra et partage ses connaissances de façon dynamique et interactive. Daniel nous a amené dans un restaurant local pour le lunch. Le meilleur repas de notre voyage! Le restaurant est calme et le service est attentionné et courtois. Daniel a pris des photos de notre famille à de multiples reprises. Il a adapté l’horaire en fonction de nos besoins et des situations. Nous avons dégusté les pâtisseries locales travesseiros. La promenade en tuk tuk permet d’avoir des vues incroyables du paysage et des monuments de Sintra. Son tuk tuk est propre et confortable. Daniel nous a fait découvrir des petits coins secrets que les grands tours ne permettent pas. Merci de tout cœur Daniel, nous avons passé une journée mémorable dont nous reparlons à tous les jours. À côté des autres visites que nous venons de faire, la tienne est inégalable.
