What to Expect
Discover the fairytale palaces and gardens of Sintra on a half-day electric bike tour, and discover secret sights with minimum effort.
Transfer from Lisbon by train. Then, set off on a 32-kilometer (20-mile) route past some of the resort town’s most beautiful sights, including the National Palace, the best preserved medieval Royal Palace in Portugal. Bike past the elaborate Quinta da Regaleira estate, surrounded by luxuriant gardens.
The guide knows the best spots and the most beautiful bike paths and takes you along a scenic route from Sintra to the seaside resort of Cascais. Cascais was once a fishing village but is now a quaint seaside town with beautiful white sand beaches.
