Located just 9 miles from Lisbon, Estoril is a popular resort town on the water where you can enjoy a very sophisticated variation of foods, modern amenities, and of course, the beach. During the day you could be in or on the water, fishing, windsurfing, diving, or water-skiing--or if you fancy--shooting 18-holes at one of the Estoril Coast’s 7 courses, including sought after Atlantico. By night, you may decide to roll the dice at Esotril’s famous Casino Estoril.
If you’re looking for something a little more tame, there are also a load of cultural sites to visit, including the exotic yet beautiful Pena Palace and Park, or go check out the Iberian Wolf Sanctuary, where you can observe or even adopt one of these majestic creatures.

Doing what: Sintra, Cascais and Estoril Coast Half-Day Trip from Lisbon

Doing what: Private Tour of Lisbon, Estoril Coast and Sintra - UNESCO World Heritage Site
The trip itself and guide were quite good. The tour bus is excellent: mosern and roomy (but no rest room). I would suggest less time for lunch in Sintra and perhaps adding another site to tour, or more time in Cais-Cais or Estoril (we were given only 15 minutes in the former and none in the latter). The reason I gave this only 4 stars and not 5 is that the organization has absolutely no customer service available on Sundays (not even the "Emergency phone number" answers on Sunday) -- and we needed vital info on Sunday for our Monday trip. A professional organization must provide SOME access on Sundays as well!
