About Tour Guide Francisco O.

Hi! I'm Francisco :) I´m a local guide, born and raised in sintra. I know sintra many years before the turism started, before 1996, it was my playground and a place for locals. I heard many legends about mysticism, secrets and sintra stories, told by local elders. Later I joined a group in sintra and deepened my historical knowledge and the Portuguese spiritual tradition linked to the Templars and knights of order of christ. The passion for history comes from my father, a history teacher and a monarch. Now, I'm responsible for sharing my passion and knowledge in a immersing guided view of Sintra, Quinta-da-Regaleira, and Pena Palace, and the keeper of the first "door" to sintra history culture and spirituality.

My working hours in low season are: from 11:00 am to 4:00 pm; in high season it runs from 11:00 am to 6:00 pm.

Excellent Day with Francisco

We had a wonderful 8 hour tour of four palaces in Sintra. Firstly, even though we had a rental car, this is not a tour that we could have done on our own. The maze of streets and few hidden parking spots would have likely meant that we would have has to miss sites. Also, gps doesn’t work on the volcanic mountain. Second, he has an excellent knowledge of the sites, and of Portuguese and world history. He also is an excellent story teller, and a great guy. Francisco picked us up and dropped us off at our hotel, which was helpful. Moreover, he grew up in Sintra, and now lives nearby so he knows a lot of people, and picked an excellent, simple local restaurant for lunch. If we did it again, would spend an extra night in Sintra and do a second day of touring with him. Highly recommend a tour with him.
