Sintra is a magical, mountainous land filled with fairy tale palaces and mysterious grottoes. Ensure you tick off all of the UNESCO-listed town’s highlights on this 8-hour tour from Lisbon. In a small group limited to eight people, you’ll travel between top attractions such as Pena National Palace and Quinta da Ragaleira with ease and efficiency. Travel along the Atlantic Coast and enjoy the coastal splendor of Cascais and Cabo da Roca, Europe’s westernmost point. Hotel pickup and drop-off in Lisbon are included.
In the morning, you’ll be collected from your Lisbon hotel in an air-conditioned vehicle equipped with Wi-Fi. During the short journey to Sintra, your guide provides a historical overview of the picturesque region.
Your first stop is the UNESCO-listed Pena National Palace, a glorious confection of color perched on the summit of Sintra mountain. Take a tour of the Romantic monument with your guide, not forgetting to enjoy the botanical beauty of its gardens.
Next, head to Quinta da Regaleira and enter its stunning grounds. The UNESCO-listed site features a subterranean grotto, elaborately carved buildings, and lush gardens, enshrouded in an air of Gothic mystery.
In the historic center of Sintra, you’ll have time to purchase lunch and sample a traditional Portuguese pastry. Explore independently during free time, and then reconvene with your guide for the journey to Cabo da Roca, a dramatic collection of cliffs that signify Europe’s westernmost point.
During the journey back to your Lisbon hotel, you’ll pass the coastal town of Cascais and the rugged Boca da Inferno (Hell’s Mouth) rock formation. Bid your guide farewell after hotel drop-off.
Excellent tour. André was on time for pick up. More importantly, he is very fluent in English, knows his material, and provided us with an excellent day. The tour is just right in terms of content. Not too much, and time to enjoy each site. We enjoyed André and the other 2 couples. André is personable and provides interesting insights into the life and culture of Portugal. Well worth the day.
Great tour. George was an excellent tour guide-very accommodating to all on the tour. Plenty of time to see everything.
Very punctual on time and because of small group tour, we got good attention and replies to our questions.
Our tour was great. We got to see some very unique attractions outside of Lisbon. Our tour guide was very professional and sweet. And this tour includes entrance ticket to most places so it is definitely worth the price. The one thing I would improve about this tour is for the tour guide should give more history about the places that we visit. Since our tour guide did not enter the historical places with us we didn't get to learn much about the history of those places.
Our Tour guide Felipa was awesome , very knowledgeable about the places we visited and super patient !!! Great driver too !
Andres was an amazing tour guide. He was very knowlegable, interesting, and had a great personality. He really showed us a great time in a very beautiful and interesting place.
Filipa was an excellent guide. She answered all our questions. Enjoyed the tour very much. Highly recommend.
I booked this tour with high expectations of the service and I am pleased to share that this one day trip was exactly the experience I was looking for. Our guide was extremely friendly, knowledgeable and always on time. He gave us a lot of tips and recommendations, which made our trip even more exciting. I defiantly recommend this tour to everyone, who visits Lisbon!
Andre was an amazing tour guide! Very knowledgeable about Lisbon and the spots visited on the tour and did a great job of uniting the tour group. Something to note is that this tour provides entrance into the locations but not a tour so we would be left to explore for a while on your own and then meet up with your tour group again to transition spots. Andre gave us great food options and amazing pastries that are traditional in Sintra! Highly recommend!
Filipa, our tour guide, was AMAZING! I believe a large part of the reason we had such an extraordinary experience on this trip is because of her. Also, since this was a small tour up to 8 people it allowed for more intimate, personalized conversation and enabled us to navigate ithe bus more easily in crowded spaces. Filipa taught us a few words in Portuguese and provided some invaluable insight on her culture. side note: She also recommended two insanely delicious restaurants in Lisbon: Ghandi Palace, where I had the best Indian food of my life, and Psi, a vegatarian restaurant that was equally good. Every location we visited was well worth our time. If you want to go to Sintra, you MUST book this tour! Thanks for everything Filipa!
