Experience the natural and historical beauty of Portugal on a small-group day trip from Lisbon to Sintra and Cascais. Start your tour with the journey to Sintra, which offers views of Queluz Palace, inspired by the Palace of Versailles.
When you arrive at Pena Park, head to the Queen's Throne for an amazing view of the Pena National Palace and the Atlantic Ocean. Enter the Romantic-era Pena National Palace to admire the Arab Room and the detailed features in the bedrooms of the king and queen.
Continue to the historical center of Sintra, where you’ll have free time to explore the town or have lunch (own expense). Next, admire the landscapes of Sintra Natural Park on your way to the cliffs of Roca Cape and the surfer's paradise of Guincho Beach. Pass the cliff at Hell’s Mouth and stop to stretch your legs along the bay in Cascais.
Wander around the center of Cascais, and then take in views of the Atlantic coast on the drive back to Lisbon.
Fatima, Nazare and Obidos Small-Group Day Trip from Lisbon
Start your day trip in Fátima, home to the famous Sanctuary of Fatima, which honors the 1917 apparition of Our Lady of Fatima (the Virgin Mary). Then, explore the coastal fishing town of Nazaré and take a short break for lunch (own expense).
Next, head to the Nazaré cliffs and make your way to the medieval village of Óbidos. Founded in 208 BC, Óbidos is commonly known in Portugal as the 'wedding present town,' as it was a gift from King Dinis to Queen Isabel on their wedding day in 1282.
Follow your guide to a local wine shop and sample Ginja, a Portuguese liqueur. Then enjoy free time to explore the village’s medieval fortress, narrow streets, and Gothic doorways decorated with dazzling tiles. Grab a snack (own expense) or browse the shops that offer a varied collection of handmade ceramics and art before heading back to Lisbon.

Trips were wonderful. Excellent guides who were also the drivers. Both had vast experiences and knowledge of Portugal and sites visited.
Absolutely would recommend.
Only comment...they have everyone meet at the Hard Rock Cafe which is in the restaurant area. If you are staying in near the Marque Pombol statute, request to be picked up at the Sana Hotel. It is be easier for you.
