We went in to ask for information about Pena Palace. We were given one word answers to our questions, no smiles and certainly no offer of further information. I do not recommend, looking at the other reviews below it’s probably best to replace the staff...More

Really like many other tourist offices around the world - pamplets, brochures etc etc. But service minded staff? No. But you can pick up different info about Sintra, but I suggest that preparation in beforehand is much better.

There are so many exciting things to do in Sintra between the palaces and the parks. However, this tourist office doesn't showcase what the town has to offer. There needs to be more visuals to make you ask for information.

The staff was friendly and answered all my questions. Good brochures are available as well. I had no problem communicating as the person I spoke with spoke English.

It probably cost a fortune to create this ‘interactive’ exhibition. It doesn’t cost a great deal to enter and the fee is covered by the Lisbon card. Just as well, you’d be very disappointed if you paid good money to be there. Enjoy the town...More

The office is in a good location in the Historical Centre, close to the National palace and the staff provide good information on what to see and transportation options available in Sintra.

Right next to the National Palace it is a good place to get some brochures on local tourist spots. They also sell souvenirs. There are WC's available for a small charge.
