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.

Alex was such a great guide. This was an amazing tour, got to see all the key sites without feeling rushed and had plenty of free time. Would highly recommend. The best part was that ticket for Peña palace was included so don’t have to worry about waiting in long lines we got there early enough so we barely had to wait!

Filipe was very engaging and accommodating while keeping the group on time. The tour was very enjoyable however if you are looking to spend quality time in Sintra or Cascais this tour is not for you. The most time is spent touring the palace. There is an hour allotted for lunch in Sintra, about 20 minutes at the cape and an hour or so in Cascais. Driving time is about 40 minutes to each stop. Exploring the town of Sintra was not possible as the allotted time was simply for lunch. Cascais was the town center and again exploring was not possible with such limited time. Pastry and coffee stop given the amount of tourists.

If you are visiting Lisbon or the surrounding areas, and you have an extra day to spare, I highly recommend this tour. The Pena Palace is beautiful and the views are gorgeous. The coastline at Cabo da Roca is amazingly beautiful as well, and you will be at the western most part of Europe. Cascais is a lovely town with lots of stores and food stops. Don't miss Santini's for incredible ice cream! And you will get a special treat if you have Ricardo, the actor and singer, for your guide!
