Full description

Discover the elegance and charm of Sintra on a day trip from Lisbon. Travel in an air-conditioned vehicle and explore the Quinta da Regaleira estate with an admission ticket. Have free time to stroll through Cascais and Sintra and capture pictures of the cliffs at Cabo da Roca.

After being picked up from your accommodation in Lisbon by your guide, travel west in an air-conditioned vehicle. Leave Lisbon behind as you follow the railway line, passing white sandy beaches, fishing vessels, ancient fortresses, and old mansions.

Pass the picturesque Portuguese Riviera of Oeiras, Estoril, and Cascais. Snap photos of Casino Estoril, Europe’s largest casino and supposed inspiration for the James Bond novel Casino Royale. Drive along Marginal Avenue, a winding road with sweeping views of the Tagus River and the Atlantic Ocean. As you pull into Cascais, take your time strolling around the chic holiday destination, once a fishing village, and then a refuge for royal families during World War II. Explore narrow alleys and glimpse traditional Portuguese white houses, or relax by the beach.

Continue to scenic Cabo da Roca, continental Europe’s westernmost point. Pass Guincho, one of the region’s most famous beaches that's popular with surfers for its strong winds and waves. Enjoy some free time admiring the landscape, and then head to UNESCO World Heritage-listed Sintra. Explore the historic center of Sintra, and then head to the romantic Quinta da Regaleira. Wander through its 4 hectares containing a palace, lush gardens, lakes, grottoes, and mysterious constructions that evoke Freemasons and the Templars.

Head to the top of Serra de Sintra, 500 m above sea level, to visit the Palace of Pena. Admire the fairytale example of architectural Romanticism that blends several styles, including Gothic, neo-Manueline, neo-Islamic, and neo-Renaissance. After the tour, enjoy a return transfer to your hotel.

Antonio gave us a private tour of Sintra - well worth the money. He was very knowledgeable (university history grad) and very friendly - we liked him very much. We walked a lot on the tour (you should be in reasonably good shape). We actually changed the itinerary a bit as we had spent 5 days in the Algarve and had visited many small towns/villages. Antonio picked us up at our hotel in Lisbon (he was on time), the car was comfortable with A/C, and the drive itself was pleasant. I would highly recommend this tour.
