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.  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 choosing for some options 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 into Sintra means greater chances of avoiding the long lines at its most famous site, if you choose to go with your guide on a comprehensive tour through its lavish interiors and lush gardens. The palace’s faithful restoration and fairy-tale-like appearance will impress you with its beautiful facade and extravagant interior. Next, head over to the center of Sintra and get 1.5-hours of free time to wander on your own. Your guide will give you recommendations of the city’s must-see locations as well as the best restaurant options for delicious traditional Portuguese dining.    Continue onto 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 minivan, and admire more breathtaking views of the Portuguese coast as you make your way back to Lisbon.

    I read reviews that João was the best guide, so I was happy to have him as my guide! We were a combination of two couples from Ireland, two from Greece, and myself from the USA (solo). I had a great time and thoroughly enjoyed all our stops! João did a great job acting as a tour guide and giving us the history of each site without boring us to death with the history. He also had great food recommendations for each location, was a great photographer, and was a very safe driver. Thank you João!

    It was my first guided tour and João (our tour guide) indeed made it an experience woth remembering. Everything - including the pick-up, Pena palace, sintra village, Cabo da Roca and Cascais till the drop-off was very smooth. He is an extremely generous person with a good knowledge of history and interesting facts and knows how to tell the story without making it boring! He also told us the highlights of each place and suggested the best places to eat at in the town. They were indeed worth a try! We were a group of 7 from different places and had good interactions with each other and João. I certainly recommend this trip to anyone wanting a comfortable experience with a friendly and knowledgeable guide, and even meet new people! :)

    The best tour we had so far! The places we’ve been were so suggestive, especially Pena Palace, a mix of culture that is different to find around. Our guide, João Costa, was perfect! He guided us and explained everything we needed to know without being boring. He made us laugh a lot, told us all the best curiosities and has been very kind and polite. Highly recommend to get the tour with him, you won’t regret and will have so much fun! He even showed us a hidden gem that few people know and was spectacular! Thanks from Lina and Ilenia!
