Full description

Discover the charm of Sintra on this day trip from Lisbon. Take a walking tour around the city center and visit the Quinta da Regaleira and the National Palace of Sintra. Taste some flavorful local products and visit the cliffs of Cabo da Roca, and pass through the seaside towns of Cascais and Estoril.

Depart from Lisbon and journey to the Unesco World Heritage Site of Sintra and explore its incomparable beauty at landmark monuments and attractions. Take a short walking tour around the village, where sights include the Quinta da Regaleira and medieval National Palace of Sintra. Get the chance to try some of the region's products, and compensate for all those calories you lost while visiting the monument. This tour includes a visit to the Regaleira Palace and its surrounding gardens (tickets not included). If you would rather visit the Castle of the Moors or the Pena Palace at the top of Sintra Hills (tickets not included), please ask your guide when the tour starts to coordinate drop-off and pickup at one of the monuments.

After the tour, you can choose to take a surf lesson with a surf instructor and equipment included. Return towards Lisbon, and stop at the cliffs of Cabo da Roca to see the westernmost point of continental Europe. Continue along the picturesque riverside road through the towns of Cascais and Estoril.

Manuel was the BEST guide. There were only 6 of us total on the tour, and we felt like we were on a private tour that would have cost way more money. He let us decide how long we spent in each location. He offered to give suggestions for where to go for the best pastries and snacks and lunch. He had tons of interesting tidbits of information for us about the locations. We felt completely catered to and had an amazing last day of our European vacation. Sintra is amazing -- Cabo de Roca is Breathtaking. Cascais was fun! ABSOLUTELY go on this tour and ask for Manuel!

Beautiful day trip from Lisbon! Our guide Francisco accompanied us giving us information and advice to visit the various stages. Unfortunately 3 hours in Sintra is not enough to visit Palàcio da Pena, but we have seen other interesting things. The stop at Boca do Inferno pleasantly surprised us. Cabo da Roca is truly exciting! We appreciated the organization and the willingness to adapt the visit to the group.

I was unable to make it on time at the pickup point and the guy I talked to on the phone was very helpful and suggested I meet the group at Sintra. He gave me the tour guides info (Fernando)and I was picked up later. I was with 5 other travellers and Fernando was an amazing and funny guide.He suggested other activities we could do, things to try while in Lisbon and gave us a very informative history of Portugal. I enjoyed my trip and it was totally worth it!
