Full description

Escape Lisbon and go on a full-day, guided journey to some of Portugal’s most popular locations stopping at the iconic Pena Palace in Sintra, the awe-inspiring cliffs of Cabo da Roca, and the ritzy seaside town of Cascais.

Your journey from Lisbon starts at the famous city of Sintra, whose Romanticist architecture, historic estates and villas, and numerous royal palaces and castles have made it a UNESCO World Heritage site.

Enjoy the freedom of choice on whether you want an included entry ticket and tour of the colorful Pena Palace, or whether you prefer to gain some extra free time instead.

Arriving early at Sintra means greater chances of avoiding long lines if you choose to go with your guide on a comprehensive tour through its lavish interiors and lush gardens. Marvel at the palace’s fairy-tale-like appearance, beautiful facade and extravagant interior.

Next, head over to the center of Sintra and get 1.5-hour of free time to wander on your own. Get recommendations of the city’s must-see locations as well as the best restaurant options for delicious traditional Portuguese dining from your guide.

Continue to Cabo da Roca, the westernmost point of continental Europe, and take in the impressive views of the ocean crashing against the high rocky cliffs. If weather permitting, stop at Guincho beach, whose strong winds and high swells have made it a popular surfing destination.

Lastly, arrive in Cascais, an elegant seaside resort town on the Portuguese Riviera. Stroll through the lovely city center and make sure to check out Cascais’ luxury marina, its charming fishing port, and a restored fort that houses many local craftsmen.

After your free exploration time in Cascais, relax back on board your air-conditioned minivan, and admire more breathtaking views of the Portuguese coast as you make your way back to Lisbon.

Not just a driver to take you there and back, Vitor showed us everything and anything we wanted to know. We saw what we needed to see and had enough time to fully experience the places along the route. From tiny details to jokes and unique facts, we felt satisfied with the tour and would recommend it to anyone with some extra time in Lisbon. The other people on our (bilingual) tour were also lovely and Vitor went the extra mile to translate our stories to make everyone feel involved and inclusive. The nicest guy, the best tour, book now! Worth every penny!!

Total of 8 people allowed for our great guide, Mary, to answer our questions and tell us about the places we visited. Never felt rushed, lots of free time to explore on our own. Mary, our guide was very knowledgeable and at no time did it appear that she was reciting from a script. She was very engaged with the group. Great experience

This tour had a good mix between group activities and some free time to explore on your own. We loved the tour of the Pena Palace and how knowledgeable our guide Vitor was. However, it is a long day and by the time we got to the last stop in Cascais we were all ready to just head back. I would have enjoyed some more time to explore the gardens around the palace over the touristy part of Cascais. Would still recommend!
