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.

Max was a wonderful guide. He was very clear in his directions. He kept the group informed. It was well organized. We had a wonderful time. We had a delay in our personal travel schedule, “get your guide” did everything possible to accommodate last minute rebooking for us to another day. Thank you!

Max was the perfect shepherd of our large flock of 23 keeping tabs on us and organising our day along with Romero the driver for seamless pick ups in some hectic locations. The day was really well organised and provided both Pena tour and lunch in Sintra Town away from peak times. I'd recommend the trip and after 2 very different tours GYG are fast becoming a regular go to on city breaks.

This is a fantastic day tour of Sintra and Cascais. We were a small group so we truly felt as though we had a private tour the whole time. Rodrigo was our guide and he was the absolute best. He was so entertaining and so full of information and recommendations. Sintra was beautiful. The palace was breathtaking. We loved having lunch in Sintra. Rodrigo was so kind. Many people stopped to ask him questions who weren’t even part of our group and he was so helpful to them. Cascais was a nice stop. Rodrigo recommended his favorite gelato place and we got some and enjoyed it by the beach. Honestly, it didn’t even feel like a tour. It felt like spending the day with a local friend.
