Full description
The enchanting town of Sintra makes the westernmost point of continental Europe much more than a place of geographical interest. This full-day private tour will give you a perspective you can only get by standing on the edge of the world. Though it is only 30 kilometers from Lisbon, this place "where the land ends" has a fresh climate and luxuriant vegetation that combine with unique architecture and a legendary charm to make it deeply romantic and mysterious. The ancient Moorish Castle of Pena Palace, built atop a cliff and the National Palace in the town center contributed to Sintra being named a World Heritage Site in 1995. But long before that it inspired famous writers including Hans Christian Anderson and Lord Byron, who called it "the most beautiful [village] in the world." First, stop at Sintra village, a delightful Portuguese town that is situated within the hills of the Serra de Sintra. Concealed within these pine covered hills are extravagant palaces and opulent mansions. Pena Palace, once the summer residence of Portugal's royal family, is the next stop. It dominates the coast to Lisbon. After lunch, visit Cabo da Roca, the actual western tip of the continent, where turbulent waters crash loudly against rocks rising to 140 meters in height and offering a beautiful view of the wild coastline. Boca do Inferno (mouth of hell), a steep cleft where the waves hit harder and louder, is nearby. A visit to Cascais, a fishing village established in the 12th century and well preserved until today, is the last stop before returning to Lisbon.

What a trip! Carlos is the absolute best! His knowledge of all things Lisbon is incredible, but, it is his passion for his heritage and belief in the best humanity has to offer that makes a day with him a truly unforgettable experience. Thank you Carlos. This is an adventure we will never forget. John & Cindy

It was a good trip. Our guide Phillip was very informative. Only thing we did not like was the time given to stay at Cascais and at the coast was very limited. Those places were worth staying a lot more than the allotted time of 15 minutes and 45 minutes respectively. Overall it was a pleasant and informative tour.

A wonderful trip!

Our tour guide was very professional, happy, nice, service oriented, safe and helpful person. I had a wonderful day trip that left a lot of memory behind. He picked me up in time from the hotel. I recommend this day trip as you will have such a nice day as well as adventure.
