Full description

Benefit from a guided tour inside the Quinta Regaleira and Pena Palace. Fall in love with Sintra, a village full of magic and mystery, the lasting symbol of Portugal's Romantic period and also classified as a UNESCO World Heritage site. Opt to treat yourself and your loved ones to a private experience with your own guide and pickup from your own hotel. Alternatively, you can get picked up from a convenient location in the center of Lisbon. Accompanied by a tour guide, visit Quinta da Regaleira and enjoy its lush gardens, lakes, grottoes, and enigmatic constructions, including the world-famous Initiation Well. Uncover the mysteries of each place and learn about the orders of the Freemasons and the Knights Templar. During the lunch break in Sintra's old town, you will have free time to explore the historical and charming streets. You will also have time to taste the traditional pastry, travesseiro.

After buying your entry ticket with your guide, step into a fairy tale when you enter the romantic Pena Palace and Park. Understand its unique architectural expression of Romanticism. Spot how it blends many styles, including Gothic, neo-Manueline, neo-Islamic, and neo-Renaissance. Stroll around the park with its astonishing variety of plants and trees. Marvel at the palace's amazing views of the castle and the Atlantic Ocean, a perfect way to end the day before returning to Lisbon.

It was such a great day. Startet our tour in Lisbon and went through to Sintra and Peña Palace. Hugo - our guide - was amazing. He has a very bright knowledge. He was telling us a lot and we had enough free time to explore. He has a really good sense of the need of the guests. Well done Hugo. It is absolutely recommended to go there - it is not far away from Lisbon but let you feel relaxed, away from the hectic city life.

First, we had trouble locating the meeting point due to an incompetent Uber driver…however the tour guide very kindly waited an extra 10 minutes for us! The mini-bus was very comfortable and a quick ~30 minute ride. The guide (Marsh sp.?) was very interesting and his English was great. Sintra is a fascinating, beautiful town. The walking up to Peña Palace was on a 45 degree incline for 10 minutes but there was a shuttle bus if needed. Highly recommend!

Like everything I saw in Portugal, I found Sintra and Regaleira worthy of a visit but not exceptional. I preferred Regaleira for its history and settings, with the descent into the well and the caves which certainly have a particular charm. Palacio da Pena is worth visiting for its location, unique colors, and architectural structure. Inside, it is nice but not particularly exciting.
