What You Can Expect

Sintra and Cascais From Lisbon 6 Hour Electric Bike Tour

Photo: Paulo Antunes

Greet your guide on Rua da Boavista, near Lisbon’s waterfront, and get to grips with your electric bike during a short briefing. The motorized bike means you’ll be able to cover long distances and steep ascents without exerting much energy.  

During the train journey to Sintra, you’ll discuss with your guide whether you wish to visit some of Sintra’s palaces or cycle continuously throughout the day. On arrival in Sintra, opt to visit the ancient National Palace of Sintra and the Quinta da Regaleira estate, home to secret tunnels and a mysterious grotto.

Following your guide, you’ll pedal past lush groves and a former 18th-century palace until you reach Monserrate Palace — considered one of the most beautiful examples of Romantic architecture in Portugal.

Relish the greenery of Colares’ vineyards and admire spectacular views of Sintra’s countryside as you pass through Penedo and Urgueira villages. Then, in Azóia village, you’ll stop for lunch in one of several Portuguese restaurants recommended by your guide.

With renewed energy, you’ll ascend to Peninha Sanctuary — a small, secluded chapel dedicated to Our Lady of the Rock — and enjoy panoramic views of Portugal’s rugged Atlantic coastline. Catch one last glimpse of the iconic Pena National Palace on its hilltop perch before descending to Sintra train station, where you’ll ride the train back to Lisbon.

This has been my favorite excursion! Our guide Ricardo, was fabulous, knowledgeable and with a lovely personality. Our outing to Sinatra was exciting, we didn't have fabulous weather, but the fog and mist made us feel like we were out of a scene in Lord of the Rings Thank you trainee, Breno, for keeping me feeling safe from behind I can't begin to describe the beautiful forest scenery, the castles and hidden secret lunch. Then we reached lovely Cascais, wow!!!! Thank you again. Anat

1 star rating: I do not recommend this October 2017

We were looking forward to this tour as both Sintra and Cascais had been well recommended. However, the reality was that we raced from the station at Sintra to the top of the mountains and down to Cascais. We didnt see any of the streets of Sintra, nor much else really. Our guide Hugo Im sure meant well, but missed the point of the tour altogether. In the end we insisted on stopping for lunch in a Cascais otherwise it would have been a non stop race for 6 hours
