Full description

Benefit from a guided tour inside the Quinta Regaleira and Pena Palace. Fall in love with Sintra, a village full of magic and mystery, the lasting symbol of Portugal's Romantic period and also classified as a UNESCO World Heritage site. Opt to treat yourself and your loved ones to a private experience with your own guide and pickup from your own hotel. Alternatively, you can get picked up from a convenient location in the center of Lisbon. Accompanied by a tour guide, visit Quinta da Regaleira and enjoy its lush gardens, lakes, grottoes, and enigmatic constructions, including the world-famous Initiation Well. Uncover the mysteries of each place and learn about the orders of the Freemasons and the Knights Templar. During the lunch break in Sintra's old town, you will have free time to explore the historical and charming streets. You will also have time to taste the traditional pastry, travesseiro.

After buying your entry ticket with your guide, step into a fairy tale when you enter the romantic Pena Palace and Park. Understand its unique architectural expression of Romanticism. Spot how it blends many styles, including Gothic, neo-Manueline, neo-Islamic, and neo-Renaissance. Stroll around the park with its astonishing variety of plants and trees.

We took a trip through Sintra, Regaleira and Peña Palace. What you see on the pictures is what you can expect. While reading the comments we feared we might be too unfit and didn’t bring the right shoes. But if you are of average weight and have a really average fitness level, the tour to Pena palace isn’t really that hard and manageable with sandals.

What an easy, fun, and informative way to enjoy Sintra. Our tour guide, Miguel, was very charming — he had lots of insightful commentary and helpful tips to share. We enjoyed that the tour group was small, so we could have plenty of conversation with Miguel. The whole day went very smoothly, we managed to avoid the larger crowds and lines. We would definitely recommend this tour. The one critique would be that Miguel’s air conditioning wasn’t working — hopefully that gets fixed before the summer weather starts!

Miguel was the best guide ever! He was very knowledgeable about the places we visited and was very animated in his story telling. Never a dull moment. Despite many visitors and long lines, Miguel came prepared. So we did not waste much time standing in line. If you are visiting Sintra for the first time, it is better to limit the visit to a few places, rather than hitting many places but only on the surface. For this tour, we were able to visit Regaleira and even go down the Well. It wasn't rushed and truly got to appreciate the beauty of the place.
