1. Sintra: Jeep Tour with Visits to Regaleira and Pena Palace

Take an adventure by riding in a Portuguese convertible Jeep through Sintra, a World Heritage town. Explore the very best secret spots and routes while being guided by the most knowledgeable locals that know all about the region. Start your day being picked up at the meeting point and traveling directly to Quinta da Regaleira, a palace filled with mystery, metaphors and underground tunnels for a guided tour.  After the visit, you will have an overview of all 5 palaces and the 8th-Century Moorish Castle as you pass by the Sintra-Cascais Natural Park. Take a break and enjoy a delicious lunch at a typical Portuguese restaurant before walking through one of the most mystical forests in the world. Visit the 12th-century Peninha Sanctuary, built 500 meters above sea level with a 360 view over the Atlantic Coast and the Natural Park. Finish your day with a guided tour to Pena Palace, the red-and-yellow Disney-like castle that sits atop Sintra’s second-highest peak. You will then be dropped off around 6:00 PM at the same station.

A day tour through some of the most beautiful places in Portugal accompanied by a local guide. The experience started with total openness and sympathy on the part of our guide who received us in the classic UMM convertible, providing a very particular perspective of the entire route. On the way we had blankets and water bottles available, as well as pleasant music and brief explanations about points of interest we passed. Both visits to Quinta da Regaleira and to Palácio da Pena were accompanied by clear and not too extensive explanations about some of the facts and interesting places in the areas. On the other hand, all the time spent in these places was spent calmly, with time to take advantage of individually and capture all the desired photographs. Finally, the finishing touches of traditional Sintra sweets and group snapshots, provided at the end of the trip, leave visual and taste memories for posterity.

the guide was very friendly and professional. the arrangements of the trip was quite good. we went to the different places with sufficient time to enjoy. i recommended this company to explore Sintra. one thing that you will have to be careful: if you're the only one to book one trip, it might be cancelled or merged into another trip.

Excellent and so much fun! We loved this tour and the tour guid Francisco was friendly and very knowledgeable. We will book again for sure! Thanks Francisco!

Pleasant and enthusiastic tour guide, definitely recommended!
