Private Tour to the Estoril Coast and Sintra - UNESCO World Heritage Site

Begin your private tour with a hotel pickup in Lisbon, then travel with your local guide to Sintra. Along the way, hear about this UNESCO World Heritage-listed town, its stunning 19th century castles, and see the region’s lush hilly terrain.

Continue with your guide up the hill to Pena Palace and see the 19th century castle that commands panoramic views of Sintra. Admire its fairytale-like architecture exemplifying an abundance of eclectic and Romanticist styles. 

Next, coast down from Pena Palace and voyage to the popular town of Cascais. Take a break here and enjoy a refreshing beverage at a local café or stroll around a bit soaking up the town’s charm. Lastly, cruise along the Estoril Coast and capture breathtaking views of the Atlantic. On your return drive to Lisbon, gaze out towards golden beaches and see the elegant gardens of Casino Estoril.

The tour was excellent. Sara was very knowledgeable not just about Sintra, but about many historical facts and places within the Lisbon area and friendly and made the trip well worth it. We would highly recommend the tour for those who only want to spend a half day trip outside of Lisbon.

6 of us took the private tour to Sintra from Lisbon. It was the perfect way to begin 10 days in Portugal - mainly due to our wonderful guide, Santiago. He took us to the Palace of Pena where he accompanied us inside(unlike some other tours when the guide drops you off and picks you up later). Santiago shared the history and folklore of the beautiful palace on the hill. His English was perfect and his knowledge covered everything from culture to history to American current affairs, and anything else we could throw at him.

A nice leisurely private tour of the area while we waited for our cruise ship to board. The guide was fantastic and they even dropped us off at the cruise terminal at the end of the tour.

We highly recommend this tour. Our tour guide, Joanna, was the greatest!! She had a wealth of knowledge regarding these sites as well as the history of Portugal in general -- not just Lisbon. We now have a great deal of appreciation for Lisbon and Portugal bc of all that we learned from her. From the history of the exploration to the architecture and even the best foods of Lison, we gave us so much more than just a tour!! We do believe that we much enjoyed this tour and the information alone paid more than for the cost of this tour. We urge you take this tour. And if possible, see if you can ask for Joanna. She is the BEST!!
