On this full-day guided tour from Lisbon, you’ll discover the Estoril Coast, enjoy the beaches of Cascais and admire the mountains of Sintra. Alongside your guide, you’ll start by visiting famous Lisbon monuments such as the Monument to the Discoveries, Belém Tower and the UNESCO-listed Jerónimos Monastery. Then, experience the beauty of National Palace of Sintra and the village of Colares before you spend the afternoon cruising along Estoril Coast to Cascais. Receive undivided attention from your guide on this private tour.
Greet your guide at your central Lisbon hotel and board an air-conditioned coach. After cruising along Liberty Avenue towards Rossio, you’ll arrive in the Alfama district and disembark to taste fine wine in a wine shop.
Next, head to Praça do Comércio to see the regal statue of King José I riding his bronze horse. Continue to the shore of the Tagus River to ogle Lisbon’s famous Monument to the Discoveries and Belém Tower before you visit the UNESCO World Heritage-listed Jerónimos Monastery.
Browse the Coach Museum’s noteworthy collection of elegant coaches, some 200-years-old, or visit either neoclassical Palácio Nacional da Ajuda (Ajuda Palace) or the Casa-Museu Medeiros e Almeida if your tour is on a Monday.
Before discovering the fairytale palaces of Sintra, stop for lunch (own expense) at a local eatery and then head to the National Palace of Sintra — a candy-colored gem that reigns resplendent on its hill-top perch. Take a guided tour of the UNESCO-listed monument with your guide before exploring the charming town of Sintra independently.
Then, enjoy leisure time to wander through the charming town on your own. From here, drive to Colares and learn about local wine-production from your guide.
Finally, soak up the sights as you drive from to the Estoril Coast; admire golden beaches near Cascais Bay and see Cabo da Roca, Europe’s westernmost point. Conclude your tour with the dramatic image of waves crashing into Hell's Mouth cliff (Boca do Inferno) before heading back to Lisbon.
