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. You may enter this multicolored masterpiece (entrance fees not included), 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. 

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.

This is a long overdue review, but my friend and I took this tour in 2015. Our driver was amazing and took very good care of us. We loved how private and personal the tour was. He even made a special stop several times for great picture captures.

One of the best tours we have taken through Viator. We saw a lot in one day. Andy was professional, knowledgeable, and fun to be with. One of the highlights was the restaurant we had lunch. It gave us a real flavor of the region.
I would highly ghly recommend this tour, especially with Andy

Andy our tour guide was exceptional. Even though the booking was made for an English speaking guide, and since we are Spanish speaking, Andy was kind enough to provide a more than competent tour in Spanish. His insights went beyond the standard story telling. The places we visited were amazing, as Palacio de Pena is a somewhat lost gem, and both Cascais and Sintra are beautiful places. Furthermore, our meal at Don Luis was absolutely amazing!!!

This was a really well done tour. We were picked up right on time. We had a very nice car. Our tour guide was fantastic. He even did some extra stuff with us like Port wine tasting and took us to a wonderful local restaurant with fish that was brought in fresh in the morning. We were with our guide for 8 hours and he never stopped providing us information and answering our hundreds of questions. Hioghly recommended!

This tour was terrific! Our guide, Diogo Costa, was incredibly knowledgeable. In addition to the beautiful sites included in this tour, Diogo went above and beyond in terms of explaining the cultural significance of Fado and how cork is harvested. He provided local pastries of Sintra and took us to a fishing village were we enjoyed a delicious and traditional lunch. Diogo was very solicitous and ensured that we got plenty of pictures, and truly enjoyed our visit.

5 star rating: Highly Recommended March 2017

We had a wonderful time on this trip primarily due our tour guide Diogo Costa. The sites were beautiful but made more so by our guide's commentary. He was knowledgeable, helpful and a perfect compliment to our experience. The Pena Palace is a must see and the small town of Sinatra charming. The history of this area and its people was fascinating and the drive along the coast to Cabo da Roca and Cascais quite nice as well. We lunched at a typical restaurant which was delicious. All in all a great trip. We can't emphasize enough how much Diogo made all the difference in the world!

5 star rating: Highly Recommended January 2017

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.
