Visit the beautiful Palmela Castle then head over to a local winery to sample four delicious local wines!

Take a break for lunch (own expense) at the fishing village of Sesimbra, famous for its delicious fresh seafood. You can also visit the village’s local beaches or go for a walk around town.

Next, follow your guide to a wine tasting session at Casa Museu Jose Maria da Fonseca, one of the oldest wine-producers in Portugal. Enjoy a guided tour of the winery and sample two wines (included) from a wide selection of regional wines.

Finally, visit the Cristo Rei Sanctuary, inaugurated in 1959 and inspired by the famous Cristo Rei monument in Brazil, and admire Lisbon from a distance before returning to the city.

5 star rating: Highly Recommended November 2014

Fabulous day with friends. The small group minibus was a real bonus as it is much nicer than being herded around on a coach. Though limited to 8 there was only me and two friends celebrating my birthday with a wine tour. We were able to look around the castle and attend both wine tastings without any other tourists/queues. The first was very small and family run winery. The wine was beautiful and so cheap to buy 4/5 euro a bottle. The second was larger and comprised of a tour of the cellars and wine tasting - the building was also a lovely place to take photos. There was a big contrast between them - one small and family run - the other much larger supplying supermarkets. Joao was a friendly and excellent tour guide - he gave us plenty of information but also left us look around on our own and did not rush us. The minibus was clean modern and comfortable. We were taken to Sesimbra for lunch via a lovely coastal road. Highlight of my holiday to Lisbon.

Awesome tour would highly recommend. Great scenery, great wine, and awesome tour guide, Andre. You get away from the big city of Lisbon and get to relax while someone else drives you to around and you drink wine, doesn't get much better than that.
