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 had a very good guide--as the prior reviewers promised--but also a number of glitches (not in the control of the company OR guide) that made the 8-hr day into a nearly 11-hr one. enjoyed the places we saw...but beware of descriptions like "10minutes of uphill walking" (the pena palace) which turned out to be nearly a half kilometer of a steep incline that will tax anyone who is not quite fit, or has breathing problems (as i do). there is a shuttle on offer, but i felt that "10 minutes uphill" was doable. and then i tried to walk it...and the half-kilometer of steep incline at a good clip--not so doable. they should tell you how far, and how steep a climb rather than giving the time that is more suited to a sprinter. (i certainly took at least twice that long, out of breath the entire way...and i can easily do my regular 10k steps per day, so it's not as if i'm entirely decrepit.) otherwise a good, informative day with magnificent views.

Wonderful experience with Miguel leading us and Fernand driving us extremely efficiently on this trip. Not only did Miguel lead the tour in an engaging and entertaining way with lots of historical facts and great suggestions for restaurants on the way, he was very warm and kind to us with a two year old on this trip. I would recommend this tour to anyone!

The tour was amazing with plenty time for pictures and historical information shared by our amazing tour guide RUTH. She was the reason the tour was amazing because unfortunately the weather didn't help us that day, and we got a lot of rain in some spots. But she made it worth it even with the rain. She shared a lot of historical info and fun facts along the tour and was always happy to share recommendations and best places to eat, visit take pictures or party. Definitely you should go for this, but remember to check the weather before to get the best of it.
