Full description
Start with a pickup from your hotel at around 9:00 AM and take the route to Queluz Palace. As a palace of the 18th-century, it was built as a summer retreat for Dom Pedro of Braganza, who would later be her husband and King Consort of his niece, Queen Maria I Portugal. Stop to take pictures. Continue with the tour through the historic center of Sintra, where you can see the wonderful old streets and take pictures at the National Palace of Sintra and make a short walking tour. Continue with your tour to Regaleira, a romantic place for excellence. It is the result of the achievement of the myth magical dreams of its owner, António Augusto Carvalho Monteiro (1848-1920). Stop for photos and visit its interior. Then, explore Pena Palace, the most extravagant Portuguese palace built on a rock with an altitude of 500 meters dominating the entire coast of Lisbon. The Arabic architecture and Manueline style present in this palace, give life to the pure Portuguese romanticism. Mandatory visit to Chalet of Edla Condess, and pass through Moors Castle, Seteais Palace and Mosserrate Palace. Next, go to Roca Cape, “where the land ends and the sea begins.” Dominating the tumultuous waters 140 meters high which beat noisily against the rocks. It offers superb views of the Atlantic Ocean at its most wild but before, you will make a stop at Adraga Beach for lunch. Nearby Cascais, you will find Hell’s Mouth. This gap in the rock is a giant canyon carved by the sea with the beating of the waves. A worthy spectacle to enjoy the sound of the waves reminding the devil’s voice growling and spitting squirts of water. Finally, the tour goes through Cascais fishing village since the 12th-century and so remained until today, a privileged place for the exiled European nobility during the two world wars, still keeping its glamour and architectural richness of other times. Return to Lisbon by following all along the coast through Estoril and Carcavelos admiring the immense beaches the coast offers. Expect to return back to Lisbon at 5:00 PM.

Diogo was FANTASTIC. Magical trip to Peña Palace and Sintra and to the coast. Full of great information and could not be more accommodating. Getting ready for some hiking at Peña if you want to see the sights. One of the best tour guides - funny - perfect English and seemed to know everything! Highly recommended!

Be prepared for uphill walking and pack a light jacket for the quick stops at windy spots. The tour description and the guide did not seem to match well, and perhaps some review of that is in order. It was a packed day, about 8 hours including driving to and from hotel and we did not fit everything in.

We had an amazing private tour with Nuno. He was so fun to be with, very punctual, full of knowledge, and we can see how enthusiastic he is in his job. We learned alot from him. We booked our tour right when we land in Lisbon. Had a quick trip in Belem and Nuno was so sweet to buy us the popular pastel de nata from the oldest maker. Then we head to our journey. It was raining in the morning so we started from the Cascais coastline to hell’s mouth, then to a beautiful Cabo da Roca, until the sky was perfectly cleared up to Sintra’s, stopped by the Monserrate Palace then we spent most of our time in the beautiful castle of Pena Palace. Nuno also took us to this best restaurant in Sintra and had an amazing seafood lunch then we head down to Regaleria, one of the beautiful and historical palace in Sintra, too. Nuno went extra to make most of our time. We had a great journey and will definitely book him again. We also asked him if he can drop us to the city center of Lisbon after the tour.
