After meeting your professional guide in central Lisbon get ready for the best half-day trip to Sintra, Cascais, and Estoril. Buckle-up aboard your air-conditioned coach and enjoy views of the Tagus River as you drive the scenic coast of Portugal to Estoril.
Hop off in the beach town of Estoril for a brief walking tour alongside your guide. Then, cruise the coastline gazing over the golden beaches and turquoise waters of the Atlantic Ocean. Before you know it, reach the rocky chasm of Hell's Mouth cliff (Boca do Inferno), formed over a millennia of crashing waves tearing away at the coastal bluff. Afterwards, break shortly at Guincho Beach and swoop more Instagram classics.
Next, cruise to the westernmost extent of Europe, Cabo da Roca (April to October only, weather permitting). Admire expansive Atlantic Ocean views alongside the lighthouse which sits upon a granite bluff of boulders.
Then ascend eastward towards the town of Sintra and learn about Portugal’s history. Pass Sintra-Cascais Natural Park and arrive at the opulent Sintra National Palace. Tour the palace and hear fascinating insight about the architectural design and elegant interior of this UNESCO World Heritage site and former home to royal families of Portugal.
Return to your coach and enjoy a comfortable journey, full of beautiful views, back to central Lisbon where your tour ends.
