Full description

Escape Lisbon and go on a full-day, guided journey to some of Portugal’s most popular locations stopping at the iconic Pena Palace in Sintra, the awe-inspiring cliffs of Cabo da Roca, and the ritzy seaside town of Cascais. Choose between the shared tour or private tour options.

Your journey from Lisbon starts at the famous city of Sintra, whose Romanticist architecture, historic estates and villas, and numerous royal palaces and castles have made it a UNESCO World Heritage site.

Enjoy the freedom of choice on whether you want an included entry ticket and tour of the colorful Pena Palace, or whether you prefer to gain some extra free time instead.

Arriving early at Sintra means greater chances of avoiding long lines if you choose to go with your guide on a comprehensive tour through its lavish interiors and lush gardens. Marvel at the palace’s fairy-tale-like appearance, beautiful facade and extravagant interior.

Next, head over to the center of Sintra and get 1.5-hour of free time to wander on your own. Get recommendations of the city’s must-see locations as well as the best restaurant options for delicious traditional Portuguese dining from your guide.

Continue to Cabo da Roca, the westernmost point of continental Europe, and take in the impressive views of the ocean crashing against the high rocky cliffs. If weather permitting, stop at Guincho beach, whose strong winds and high swells have made it a popular surfing destination.

Lastly, arrive in Cascais, an elegant seaside resort town on the Portuguese Riviera. Stroll through the lovely city center and make sure to check out Cascais’ luxury marina, its charming fishing port, and a restored fort that houses many local craftsmen.

After your free exploration time in Cascais, relax back on board your air-conditioned vehicle, and admire more breathtaking views of the Portuguese coast as you make your way back to Lisbon.

We really enjoyed this day trip. Felt like we saw SO MUCH of the Lisbon region while leaving the driving to someone else. Our guide, Ricardo, was entertaining and enthusiastic--quite a feat when he does this day 4x/week. The history was fascinating. Only negatives: The bus was VERY warm--like the A/C wasn't even on. Ricardo asked the driver to turn it up and I think he did a tad--but it did't make a dent. Also, the seating was very tight--and we aren't large people. Not a very comfortable ride.

The experience overall was very good. It followed the itinerary very well, so we knew what to expect for the most part. It was perfect for the tour of the pena palace, as we skipped to the front of the (very long) queue and were able to tour the palace and grounds before lunch. Cabo de Roca was amazing, and Cascais was a neat beach town. The only disappointing part was something I failed to consider when booking this -- the copious amounts of tourists all flocking to a single site that doesn't have the capacity for that many people. The palace was one thing, but when we got dropped off at Sintra for lunch, we watched bus load after bus load of tourists flock into these tiny side streets. It was a bit overwhelming honestly. Realistically, to hit all these places in a day, you should absolutely book a tour like this. Just be advised that everyone and their mother might be there as well.

Lovely trip with a super knowledgeable and funny tour guide! The meeting point is pretty central in Lisbon and the bus rides between locations were relatively quick, so it didn’t feel like you were in the bus all day. Lunch is not included but plenty of time to eat in town, with recommendations from our guide.
