What You Can Expect

Private Tour: Sintra, Cabo da Roca and Cascais Day Trip from Lisbon

Admire Cabo da Roca

Meet your private guide at your hotel in central Lisbon, then hop inside a climate-controlled vehicle and travel north along the coastline. Gaze out of the window as Lisbon’s pretty city architecture gives way to wind-carved cliffs and the mighty Atlantic Ocean.

Pass Sintra village as you ascend to Pena National Palace, which sits atop a hill surrounded by wooded gardens. If you upgraded to include admission to this multicolored masterpiece, head inside to explore its romantic cloisters and lavishly decorated rooms.

Continue back down into the medieval village of Sintra, where you’ll enjoy time at your leisure. If you’ve upgraded to include lunch, your guide will take you to a traditional Portuguese restaurant for your 3-course meal.

When the time comes, return to your vehicle and make your way along the coast, passing Guincho Beach, to Cascais, where you’ll have the chance to dip your toes in the surf before returning to Lisbon.

Your tour concludes with a drop-off at your hotel in Lisbon.

The tour was a lovely, lovely day out. Our guide, Miguel was warm, friendly and informative. He ensured that we were given priority, answered all our questions and made us feel very special. The palace at Sintra is remarkable and a must' if you are travelling to Lisbon. There was extraordinary architecture, art and furniture. The beautiful township of Cascais was very different - a modern seaside place with a beautiful beach. The view at Cabo da Roca was terrific but it was only worth a short visit. All up, we would highly recommend this tour.

Fantastic tour!! João was extremely knowledgeable and happy to answer all the questions we had as first-time visitors to Portugal. My dad has mobility issues and found Sintra challenging but felt motivated to continue because João was so patient and engaging. Great experience, highly recommended!!!

Our guideDiogo was exceptional he was knowledgeable , friendly and attentive to the needs of all members of our group. His knowledge of the area saved us time and guided us toward the experience that was tailored to us.

The car was a recent high end model, it was roomy and comfortable.

Private tours are more expensive but we find that the flexibility and exclusive access to the guide is worth the difference.

This is an amazing place and a must see if you are in the Lisbon area. I highly recommend the private tour. We were escorted by Diogo and he is so informative but also fun to be around. I had read the reviews previous to booking this trip and all I can say is they are all true. I would highly recommend this tour and this tour guide.

The pick up from our hotel was on time which set the tone for the rest of the tour. It was well organised, the stop off sites very interesting and were in the category of not to be missed . The route was well thought out filling eight hours of sightseeing without problem. All was made a thoroughly enjoyable experience by our tour guide Madalena from Sintra Magik Tours, whose commentary, historical knowledge, information and interesting local awareness makes it very easy for me to recommend the activity to anybody. It would have been a more simple journey if we had used a smaller vehicle for our private tour than a 9 seater mini bus but that would be the only down comment I would make about the whole tour......and the narrow roads didn't bother our guide one little bit. Excellent tour.
