What You Can Expect

Private Tour: Lisbon and Sintra Sightseeing Tour by Convertible Beetle

Private Tour: Lisbon and Sintra Sightseeing Tour by Convertible Beetle

Begin your private Lisbon tour with a pickup at your hotel. Then, meet your guide, pop into your retro VW Beetle convertible and begin with a drive to the top landmarks in Lisbon. Wind through the streets of Alfama and see Castelo de São Jorge that commands its hillside. From their, discover the famous historic square Praça do Comércio in Baixa.

Continue to amble through the neighborhoods of Graça, Belém, Bairro Alto and Chiado and learn about the areas that were rebuilt after the devastating Lisbon earthquake of 1755. Marvel at architecture with a variety of styles shaped by the shakes of Lisbon’s tremulous past.

Upgrade to a full-day tour:
Select the full-day option and enjoy an 8-hour adventure that not only adds more places to visit in Lisbon, but includes a trip to the fairytale-like town of Sintra. Following your AM exploration of Lisbon, traverse along the Tagus River until you reach the Estoril Coast. Gaze at stunning views  until you arrive at the cape which forms the westernmost extent of continental Europe, Cabo da Roca. Snap a few photos here and then head nearby for lunch at a local Portuguese place (own expense). If you would like, sample delightful cheese, chorizo and pastries. Perhaps, top it off with a glass of flavorful regional wine.

With a full belly, travel on to the region of Sintra and observe the beautiful combination of nature and architectural expression. See how the Arabesque Monserrate Estate and the well-maintained Sintra National Palace elegantly coexist within the lush hillsides. With your guide, thoroughly explore the castles and marvelous buildings which makeup the UNESCO-listed town of Sintra. Finally, return to Lisbon as the blue sky wanes overhead. 

To get a well rounded day experiencing Portugal, feel free to indulge in wine and spirit tastings, and don’t forget to try Lisbon’s famous cakes.

A fantastic way to see the highlights of Portugal outside of Lisbon. Our tour guide and driver Louis was superb and very helpful. Driving on a beautiful day with the top down in our green Beetle made the trip more special. I would highly rate this tour as a great way to start your Lisbon experience.

We loved our recent tour of Lisbon and Sintra in Portugal. This is definitely the way to tour! Our guide, Julianne, was very knowledgable about the sights to see and places to check out. She even gave us time to shop. She also took us to a restaurant that served those famous little cakes. We thoroughly enjoyed spending the day with her. The car was awesome, too. Everyone wanted to take pictures of it. I would definitely recommend this tour if you want to see Lisbon and Sintra, and have a great time doing it. So much fun!

The best ride Juliane our guide was such a good driver and took us around the beautiful sites in Sintra, drove to Cabo Da Roca the most western point in Europe, we had a wonderful lunch in one of the sea food restaurants and drove through the beautiful city of Cascais and then to Lisbon where we stoped at two more interesting spots. A great trip.
