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.
An excellent tour.... My journal explains Soaking in the early morning stillness of the streets, I found my way to the meeting point, but not before purchasing a Portuguese tart for breakfast, delicious but sweet. I think the sugar coated my teeth for a good couple of hours. The tour today was combination of local Lisbon and then outer Sintra, returning home with a drive down the coast. Local Lisbon consisted of a number of sights including Rossio area great for shopping, Alfama a very old part of Portugal and perhaps my favorite, winding, hilly and skinning streets lined with very old buildings nice ambiance, very picturesque, Praça do Comércio Sculpture of King José I on a bronze horse Belém Tower and the Monument to the Discoveries. UNESCO sights are always on my bucket list and I was rewarded on this tour with a visit to the Jerónimos Monastery, mass appeared to have just finished timing is everything. So for those that remember Vasco da Gamas first European to reach India by sea - tomb is in the church here. Opulence at its best was seen at a visit to the coach museum an array of coaches built for the aristocracy, dating back to the 17th century. A reasonable drive after lunch landed us in a small town called Sintra with a visit to the Sintra National Palace and wander through the town. The Palace was not the most impressive I have seen but each palace has its own uniqueness and this one certainly did. There were a couple of rooms of note they included the chapel, the kitchen with the largest chimneys ever, and the blue and white chamber stunning. Returning home through a number of interesting point including the western most point of Europe Cabo da Roca known as the end of the world for Europeans back in the day. Following the coast, a couple of points of interest included Cascais Bay, Estoril Coast and Hell's Mouth cliff Boca do Inferno.Boa Noite,
Excellent guide, nice tour and interesting stops.
We loved both tours. An added bonus was that we got picked up and dropped off at our hotel.
Spectacular! Saw so much and the guide was passionate and very knowledgeable.
Excellent tour and pleasant, well-informed guides.
Bit disorganised in the beginging ordered online form the hotel two days before hand so i wrote email about pickup but knowone answered it so we walked to the loacation that was mentioned only to find out that they had arrange pickup from hotel. Other that this the Guide was fantsatic . Sintra was really beautiful would have like to stay little longer in Cascais. However it was beautiful and we enjoyed well worth seeing.
So much seen in both parts of this compilation. Excellent guides.
Love Lisbon but was really overwelmed by surrounding areas: Sintra, Cascais and Estoril Coast. Quite a perfect mixt of history and mother nature's beauty!
Even so on the beginning I was placed in a wrong bus, your crew did fix the problem and accomodate me in exploring Lisbon after coming back from surrounding areas.
Unforgettable experience. A country with fascinating history and lovely people.
