Tour Highlights

Informative, friendly and professional guide
Pickup from a centrally located meeting point
Comprehensive tour by bus/coach

Just a short trip away from Lisbon are the beautiful towns of Sintra and Cascais. Start your tour with the journey to Sintra. Visit Pena Park, where you will be amazed by the variety of trails, trees and other plants. Head to the Queen’s Throne for an amazing view of the Pena National Palace (Palacio da Pena) and the Atlantic Ocean.

Next, feel like Portuguese royalty as you enter the romantic Pena National Palace at the top of Sintra Mountain. See the Great Triton, the guardian of the palace, inspired by Manueline art. Inside the palace, admire the attention to detail in the bedrooms of the king and queen and the Arab Room.

Leave the palace and follow your guide to the historical center of Sintra, where you’ll have free time to explore the town, to visit Sintra National Palace (where the Portuguese royalty of the 15th and 16th centuries used to spend the summer months) or have some lunch (own expense). For dessert, try a travesseiro or a queijada, two delicious local pastries.

Next, admire the landscape of Sintra Natural Park, passing Quinta da Regaleira, Seteais Palace and the Palace of Monserrate on the way. Enjoy a photo opportunity at the cliffs of Roca Cape (Cabo da Roca), the westernmost point of Europe, and visit the surfer’s paradise of Guincho Beach. Pass the cliff at Hell’s Mouth (Boca do Inferno), before stopping to stretch your legs along Cascais’ bay.

Wander around the center of Cascais, a former fishing village and today a popular holiday spot. Follow your guide through narrow alleyways and see the traditional Portuguese white houses or enjoy some time relaxing at the beach.

On the drive back to Lisbon where your tour concludes, soak up the scenic views along the Atlantic coast and in the town of Estoril.

    This was a great tour, and I am really glad I chose the one I did. We got to see Sintra’s Pena Palace and some of the giant park that surrounds it, we got to see some of Sintra, Cascas, Cabo da Roca, and some more photo-opp stops along the way. Our guide, Joao, was very nice and knew a lot and was great at telling us information in an interesting way.

    Fantastic tour made better by the services of our tour guide Joao Costa. A very friendly, knowledgeable guide who made sure we missed none of the sights on the tour, even stopping to show us things not included on the trip. Sintra is a magical place and the palace is a must not miss experience. Joao made sure the trip went smoothly and did all he could to ensure our enjoyment of the experience.

    Great, efficient, and fun way to learn about Lisbon and make new friends. My girl friend Susan and I had a great time with Pedro as our tour guide. Pedro is a teacher, and knows Lisbon and it’s history extremely well. You simply can’t enjoy the history and culture of a place as beautiful as Lisbon and it’s surrounding areas without a local person to give you the real in-depth story. We also enjoyed the small-van experience and made new friends from China, San Francisco, and New York.

    This tour was a magical experience. It was everything you want from travel and from a day tour: a bit of a history lesson, a lot of cultural context, breathtaking sights and a stellar guide to show you the way. Gus, my tour guide, is one of the best I’ve ever had.

She was very friendly and made the trip very enjoyable in spite of the inclement weather we experienced through most of the tour. She was extremely knowledgeable about the history of the places we visited. I would highly recommend this tour.

    Joao Lisbon born and raised was funny, sarcastic, and a very informative guide. The tour covers everything in the description to the T. The tour does literally last all day, with a lot of driving between stops. There will be some steep hills to climb, so wear comfortable shoes. Get a good nights rest, otherwise you my fall asleep on the drives. Highly recommend this tour! FYI – the temperature was about 70F in Lisbon, but in Sintra it was probably in the mid to upper 50’s. Bring a jacket, the wind and shade of the Forrest will have you shivering without it.

    We really enjoyed this tour. It was a perfect balance of time with our guide/group and independent time to explore. Our guide was very well-informed and gave us tips for lunch, local specialties, etc. that were helpful. The stops on this tour were all fantastic — we cannot say enough for how impressive the Pena Palace was!
