Full description

Explore the beauty and culture of Sintra and Cascais on this guided tour. Stroll through the picturesque village of Sintra, take a tour through the Pena Palace, and more. Visit Cascais and sail along its stunning coast to Lisbon.

Meet your guide in Lisboa city center and travel to romantic Sintra in a comfortable air-conditioned minivan.

Arrive at one of the highest points of the Serra de Sintra to see the Pena Palace, one of the most iconic expressions of 19th-century Romanticism in Europe. Enter its gardens accompanied and see the exotic trees from all over the world, which add to its magic and mystery.

Head for the Pena Palace itself, one of the main residences of the Portuguese royal family during the 19th century. Admire the mixture of architectural styles and see why King Fernando II deserved the nickname of King-Artist. 

Enjoy the views of the Moorish Castle, a testimony to the Islamic presence in the Iberian Peninsula, built in the 9th century and conquered by the Portuguese during the formation of the Portugal Kingdom.

Take in the landscape of Sintra, a world heritage site, before heading down to the picturesque village to stroll freely through its charming streets, or taste its regional products, such as the famous travesseiros and queijadas de Sintra.

Continue the guided tour to Cascais, a fishing village that was once the summer destination of the royal family. Head over to the Cascais Citadel, and learn about the set of fortifications built over 500 years ago as protection from pirates.

Then, visit a unique natural chasm located in the seaside cliffs, the breathtaking Hells Mouth, to feel the Atlantic Ocean's full force and take a memorable postcard picture.

As that portion of the tour ends, it’s then time to sail along the coast of Cascais and Estoril. Marvel at the view of the sunny beaches and feel the sea breeze until you reach Belem, the neighborhood of Lisbon that honors the memory of the era of Portuguese maritime discoveries.

Finish the tour enriched by the adventurous day, filled with culture and beauty.

He quedado encantado con este tour, el día era esplendido y perfecto para navegar con barco, de hecho esta fue mi parte favorita de la experiencia porque fue algo que no todos los tours por la ciudad incluyen y eso lo hizo tan especial y único e incomparable con los tours que se venden en la ciudad de Lisboa. El palacio da pena me pareció precioso, un lugar para quedarte horas mirando y sintiendo la buena vibra que se siente en el municipio de Sintra.

A experiência foi incrível! O guia Flavio tinha muito conhecimento e foi muito gentil durante todo o tour. O Palacio da Pena foi minha parte favorita, é realmente muito bonito, vale a pena conhecer. Eu recomendo muito esse tour para quem vai para Lisboa pela primeira vez, ou para quem já conhece e quer fazer algo diferente!

Mi primera vez en Lisboa y ya estoy deseando volver a repetir el viaje. Esta experiencia estuvo increíble, la recomiendo muchísimo si lo que quieres es descubrir Lisboa y descubrir el aspecto histórico y cultural de la ciudad. El pena palace es precioso, me sorprendieron mucho sus colores tan llamativos ya que destaca muchísimo. Después de la visita por Sintra fuimos en barco por los alrededores de la ciudad y fue una experiencia maravilloso.
