Full description
The first stop is the fantastic Palace of Queluz, built in the 18th Century, which was the official royal residence of the king D. Pedro IV of Portugal.  Visit the beautiful and historic town of Sintra, a UNESCO world heritage site. Discover the picturesque streets, Sintra National Palace, the fountains, the churches, chapels and shrines. Climb to the Moorish Castle (Ticket Included) where the construction of the first sections of its wall dates from the 8th and 9th century. From the castle, you can enjoy a fantastic view of the whole region. It can’t be missed! The next stop is Quinta da Regaleira, one of the most amazing monuments of Sintra. This place is one of the most startling, magical, and mysterious in the area. Explore its tunnels, mazes, and its riddles and symbols that are reminders of the mythology of Olympus, Virgil, Dante, Camões, and of the Knights Templar of the Order of Christ. Next, stop in Colares in the cellars of Adega regional de Colares to have a tasting of the best regional wines. Discover the most western point of continental Europe. From the cliff tops, enjoy the fantastic view of the beaches and the sea. From the road near the coast, you can gaze at the beaches and the beautiful towns of Estoril and Cascais. On the way back, have the chance to enjoy this unique beach with its famous dunes. A real sanctuary for surf, windsurf, and kitesurf.  And of course you can’t leave without visiting the charming town of Cascais. This former fishing village used to be a royal getaway. Nowadays it still is one of the most attractive destinations for the Portuguese and foreign elite thanks to all that it has to offer: boutiques, restaurants, hotels, beaches, and much more.

It was a really nice ride! Miguel took my wife and I to the planned places and helped us manage time at each one so that we could make the most of them. In addition, he was always willing to clarify our doubts about the places visited, adding some curiosities and information about them. Sintra is a little gem, and the Castelo dos Mouros is well worth a visit. Lunch at Praia das Maçãs was pleasant, as was the wine tasting, with surprising labels. Cabo das Rocas impresses, for the notion it gives us of the vastness of the ocean ahead and of the European continent that "ends up" there. Also, it was interesting to get to know Cascais. A great day, with great memories!

What an experience

An absolutely fantastic trip where we saw so many beautiful things. Sintra is so nice and cozy if you ignore all the tourists who were down in the city. This trip can definitely be recommended and feel free to leave early. The missing star is because our guide was not the best at English.

Excellent, I was looking for a more isolated Castle with a more isolated “face”, and that's exactly what I found. I liked it more than São Jorge Castle. Note arrive early when there are few tourists
