Full description

Explore the beauty and culture of Sintra and Cascais on this guided tour. Stroll through the picturesque village of Sintra, take a tour through the Pena Palace, and more. Visit Cascais and sail along its stunning coast to Lisbon, if you select the upgrade option.

Meet your guide in Lisboa city center and travel to romantic Sintra in a comfortable air-conditioned minivan.

Arrive at one of the highest points of the Serra de Sintra to see the Pena Palace, one of the most iconic expressions of 19th-century Romanticism in Europe. Enter its gardens accompanied and see the exotic trees from all over the world, which add to its magic and mystery.

Head for the Pena Palace itself, one of the main residences of the Portuguese royal family during the 19th century. Admire the mixture of architectural styles and see why King Fernando II deserved the nickname of King-Artist. 

Enjoy the views of the Moorish Castle, a testimony to the Islamic presence in the Iberian Peninsula, built in the 9th century and conquered by the Portuguese during the formation of the Portugal Kingdom.

Take in the landscape of Sintra, a world heritage site, before heading down to the picturesque village to stroll freely through its charming streets, or taste its regional products, such as the famous travesseiros and queijadas de Sintra.

Continue the guided tour to Cascais, a fishing village that was once the summer destination of the royal family. Head over to the Cascais Citadel, and learn about the set of fortifications built over 500 years ago as protection from pirates.

Then, visit a unique natural chasm located in the seaside cliffs, the breathtaking Hells Mouth, to feel the Atlantic Ocean's full force and take a memorable postcard picture.

The standard tour option returns to Lisbon at this point, but if you choose the upgrade option, it’s now time to sail along the coast of Cascais and Estoril. Marvel at the view of the sunny beaches and feel the sea breeze until you reach Lisbon's Belem neighborhood, where your guide will be happy to share tips for the area as you continue your visit on your own.

My first time in Lisbon and I am already looking forward to repeating the trip. This experience was incredible, I highly recommend it if you want to discover Lisbon and discover the historical and cultural aspect of the city. The Pena Palace is beautiful, I was very surprised by its striking colors since it stands out a lot. After the visit to Sintra we went by boat around the city and it was a wonderful experience.

If I had to describe this tour with one serious word: Wonderful. Thanks to this beautiful experience I have been able to discover Lisbon in the best possible way, by boat and visiting for myself, the best of the city. I had seen many videos about the Sintra parish but in person it is much more impressive, you really have to visit it, I highly recommend it. My favorite part of the tour? The Pena National Palace seemed to me to be the most beautiful building in all of Lisbon, and our guide Flavio explained to us that this was the residence of the Portuguese royal family during the 19th century, that's when I realized why that place was so beautiful hahaha. An experience that I would repeat again without thinking about it!

He quedado encantado con este tour, el día era esplendido y perfecto para navegar con barco, de hecho esta fue mi parte favorita de la experiencia porque fue algo que no todos los tours por la ciudad incluyen y eso lo hizo tan especial y único e incomparable con los tours que se venden en la ciudad de Lisboa. El palacio da pena me pareció precioso, un lugar para quedarte horas mirando y sintiendo la buena vibra que se siente en el municipio de Sintra.
