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.

All normal. Guide (wise) nice and very prepared. The palazzo de pena was a total disappointment, much better capo da roca should I have preferred to spend more time. Furthermore, instead of leaving useless free time in Sintra, I would add Quintana de regaleira as a stop, which I visited alone. It is much more impressive than Palacio da Pena. Pretty cascais. Still great tour but very expensive for what it offers. In the end you can do everything as public transport

This is a very good day trip and we were lucky to have Rute for our guide. She Was amazing and we loved spending time with her on the tour. The only thing all three of us agreed that should be changed is adding Quinta da Regaleira in the tour instead of Cascais and maybe add a 20min stop on one of the beautiuf beaches we passed along!

Max was an amazing tour guide! He was so passionate to share the history of his country with us which made learning about Portugal all that more enjoyable. Even with the random weather that day, he made it an amazing memorable trip for us! As well as our driver victor, always on time and ready to go at each spot!
