Full description
Spend half a day visiting Sintra, the capital of 19th-century Romanticism and one of the most picturesque destinations in Portugal. Grand architecture, ancient palaces, gardens, and centenary trees await you on this guided tour from Lisbon. You have a choice of landmarks and attractions that can be worked into a 4-hour program: Pena Palace – one of the major expressions of 19th-century Romanticism in the world. The Palace is a UNESCO World Heritage Site and one of the 7 Wonders of Portugal. Sintra village – well known for its many 19th-century architectural treasures. The village has been listed by UNESCO as a World Heritage Site. Castle of the Moors – taken by Christian forces from the Moors after the fall of Lisbon. The medieval castle was an important strategic point during the Reconquista, and classified as a National Monument, part of the Sintra Cultural Landscape, and a UNESCO World Heritage Site. Guincho Beach – known for its favorable surfing conditions. This is a popular beach for surfing, windsurfing, and kitesurfing. Queluz Palace – one of the last great Rococo buildings to be designed in Europe, the Palace was conceived as a summer retreat for Dom Pedro of Braganza, later to become husband and then king consort to his own niece, Queen Maria I. It served as a discreet place of incarceration for Queen Maria as her descent into madness continued in the years following Dom Pedro's death in 1786. Azenhas do Mar – a seaside town in the municipality of Sintra. Cascais and Estoril – former fishing villages that became royal getaways. Today they are among the most attractive destinations for the Portuguese and foreign elite thanks to an abundance of boutiques, restaurants, hotels, beaches, and much more. Cabo da Roca – the most westerly point in continental Europe. From the clifftops, you’ll enjoy fantastic views of the beaches and the sea. From the road near the coast, you’ll have scenic views of the glamorous towns of Estoril and Cascais.

This tour was exactly what we hoped it would be. We saw so much in just half a day - ideal if you are short of time as we were, with only 2 days free in the Lisbon area. Our host was charming and knowledgable, Sintra was delightful, Copa de Roca gave us some fine coastal views and it was also good to see various landmarks on the drive mack into Lisbon

Amazing half day completely tailored to us

Booked this tour for myself, my sister and our 80-year-old mum who walks with a cane. Apart from a very minor mixup regarding pickup location, we had a fantastic day. Nuno was so attentive and stopped whenever we asked him to and gave excellent commentary throughout the trip. There was a forest fire alert on the day of tour which meant we couldn’t drive up to see the palaces in Sintra, but Nuno took us to see loads of beaches and other fascinating places instead - this more than made up for the disappointment of missing the palaces. Highly recommend this activity.

A super private tour.

We have the good fortune to get António as our driver and guide for the morning. He arrived promptly at 9am. It was s very informative drive to Pena Palace and we were dropped very close to the entrance. Luckily I had pre purchased skip the line tickets, as the queue was over half an hour to buy them at the gate. The palace and gardens take a good hour and a half to tour and was a very good historical experience. We then had a short stop in Sintra town on the way back to Lisbon. There is no need to print any tickets either for the tour or skip the line entry. All Portugal sightseeing places are very well equipped for digital entry.
