Enter its gardens accompanied by your guide and appreciate the exotic trees from all over the world, making this a magical and mysterious place. Head for the Pena Palace, one of the main residences of the Portuguese royal family during the 19th century to be amazed by the intentional mixture of architectural styles and understand why King Fernando II deserved the nickname of "King-Artist". Enjoy the views from on high to the Moorish Castle, a testimony of the Islamic presence in the Iberian Peninsula, built in the 9th century and conquered by the Portuguese during the formation of the Portugal Kingdom. Immerse yourself by the Cultural Landscape of Sintra classified by UNESCO as a World Heritage Site before heading down to the picturesque village of Sintra to stroll freely through its charming streets or taste its regional products such as the famous travesseiros and queijadas de Sintra.

We only had a few days in Lisbon, and we are so happy that we got away from the city crowds and did this tour! Definitely the best way to see a lot in a few hours. We loved traveling around with a local! Our guide Ruben was knowledgeable and we could see his love for the places he took us. We decided to skip Pena Palace figuring it would be busy and instead explored the Moorish Castle which was breathtaking. Ruben gave us a lot of tips and even called around to different restaurants to hunt down something specific my husband wanted to try. Ruben was able to customize our day based on what we like. I would highly recommend this tour!

Of course in Sintra one must visit Pena & other palaces, and Quinta de Regaleira. But there are so many MORE gems that are hidden as well. This tour is a must to actually learn about traditional life in Portugal (which the normal tourist sites do not show at all). And Filipe was a fantastic tour guide. He is very knowledgeable and very fun. He obviously loves his country as well. If all you want to learn is who built a chair in a palace, this is not the tour for you - stick with the run-of-the-mill palace tours. But if you want to know what life was like in the small village, call Filipe. You won’t be disappointed.

Very great tour with excellent guide. Lots of amazing nature milestones and historical points!

Booked it as a surprise trip for my girlfriends birthday. It was magnificent.

The guide was very flexible and found things to match my interest
