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.

Really odd tour. The guide had to translate into 4 languages which meant at the Palace it would take forever in each room while all the translations took place and then move on to the next. This meant we had very little free time in Sintra itself. The guide really had no interest in the group and if we wanted ant directions on where to go once we got off the.bus we had to ask. There was no guidance from the tour guide. Would have loved to stop and see the beaches instead of just viewing from the bus. The stop is Cascais makes no sense . Once you walk to the beach area it's time to walk back. I arrived for pickup on time according to my email voucher but actually the tour left 15 min later. Not sure why they make people get there at 2pm just to sit in the heat. And I was told 6.30 I would be back in Lisbon. It was actually 7.30. Would nit recommend greyline tour. Try a different company for this tour.

Liked the sights and felt I got my moneys worth since the tour ran over by an hour. It is hard to have a great tour, though, when the tour is conducted in three different languages. It made the tour impersonal since I felt like the tour guide couldnt really add in any ad how information since it was such a burden to translate. There was also a lot of ailence during the bus tour which I felt could have easily been filled with facts and history about the sights along the way.

The National Palace was just OK - I would have preferred to have more free time in Cascais and The Estoril Coast - next time.

This trip was absolutely stunning. We are air crew and we always look to maximize our layover time by taking in beauty, culture and food when possible. Our tour took us to places like no other. We had 3 stops on this tour that took in local, coastal and good wine. We truly appreciated the tour guide and driver both for their knowledge and excellent service provided.

tour provider did not pick me up from my hotel even though I re-confirmed the day before, was very disappointed to miss the tour.

first of all: you do NOT see the palacio nacional da pena - not even a glimpse of it!! - you just visit the city's palace, which is, in my opinion, NOT a must see. first disappointment. but it's cheeky to allege, that you are going to Estoril too - because you just pass by and sneak a peek of the casino. no cabo da roca too, no walk on the beach.

what worked: hotel pick up was on time and a drop off also possible. nice guide anna and inattentive driver - wanted to knock over a red light! no real highlight, nothing on the tour, you HAVE to see in portugal. I should have spent my day in lisbon.

conclusion: not worth the price, would not recommend.

Nicht empfehlenswert, viel zu teuer

aufgepasst: man sieht den palacio nacional da pena nicht, nicht mal einen flüchtigen blick erhascht man auf dieser tour. man besucht lediglich den palast in der stadt, dies wenigstens unter führung des guides in unserem fall anna. ist aber kein highlight.

sehr frech fand ich, Estoril aufzuzählen: denn man fährt nur durch den ort, wirft einen blick aufs casino und fährt weiter nach lissabon. wenigstens haben hotel pick up und drop off funktioniert, waren sogar überpünktlich. am sammelplatz aber wurde ich einfach ohne weiteren kommentar stehengelassen. die zwei, die mich abgeholt hatten, fuhren einfach davon. ich musste meinen weg zum bus selbst finden. geht's noch?

weiters: kein cabo da roca, kein spaziergang am strand. fahrer unaufmerksam. sah sich unseren guide genauer an als die straße. gefährlich, da auf portugals autobahnen alle 30km ein Auto am straßenrand oder mitten auf der straße steht, weil es liegengeblieben ist ...

First of all, the tour was overcrowded. The tour guide tried to explain everything in three languages. First Portuguese, then English, then German definitely not fluent in German. This cost the tour take three times as long at every point of interest, this made people bored and tired.

By the way, the tour started around 14.40 and we have been told we will be back in Lisbon around 19.00. But after visiting Sintra National Palace we arrived Cascais at 19.00 after sunset and we have been told the bus will move after 40 minutes. As we've had other arrangement in Lisbon at 19.30 so we had to take a taxi to Lisbon by ourselves. As far as I've observed, other tourists were also frustrated because of this delay and were asking other means to travel back to Lisbon.

I've purchased and attended many tours from Viator and this is definitely worst experience I've had. If I had the opportunity I'd definitely ask for a refund!

Also, please note that the tour takes you to only National Palace in Sintra, not Pena Palace.
