Full description
Discover a glorious “Garden of Eden” on a full-day tour of Sintra, a paradise resort of fairytale palaces and ornate architecture just outside Lisbon. Discover why this charming village delighted poets, artists, and authors, including Hans Christian Andersen and Lord Byron. Your tour includes a look inside Pena Palace, designed in a magnificent mix of Manueline and Moorish styles. Learn how its exotic and eclectic profusion of styles follows the rules of Romanticism. Pass the Castle of the Moors and enjoy breathtaking views from its towers. Next, drive to Cabo da Roca at the westernmost point of mainland Europe. Look at the wild Atlantic Ocean from Guincho Beach, and keep your eyes open for surfers on the waves of the Estoril Coast. Stop in the former fishing village of Cascais, now part of the Portuguese Riviera and a place of exile for European royalty. Head back to Lisbon along the “Marginal” road, following the Atlantic to see white sand beaches and magnificent 17th-century forts.

We had a super group that had great energy ~ our guide really went with our groups dynamics. The tour was relaxed, fun and still offered lots of learning and relatable history. We were so happy to meet our 3 new friends from the US and I wish I could remember our guides name because he was fantastic!

Really good experience, loved our tour guide! His timekeeping was great and he was very knowledgeable on the setting. Our day was slightly let down by other patrons. They were late and were hesitant on interacting with us. As they spoke in another language (which isn't a problem) they consistently kept our guide speaker in Portuguese/Spanish. We, along with others, felt a little left out of the experience. Would recommend but maybe divide the language speakers. (Which we understand can be difficult).

A wonderful tour of magical Sintra, the most westerly point in Europe and Cascais. Our guide spoke near perfect English and was an excellent historian - he even knew more English history than me.! We went in a small group in a minibus from the centre of Lisbon so we could easily keep together. A great experience.
