Sintra's fairy-tale castles are scattered unevenly throughout the region, making it difficult to see them all off without hiring a car. Easily travel between Pena National Palace, Sintra historic center, and Cascais on a day trip from Lisbon—a stress-free way to cover more ground in less time. Plus, an intimate group limited to eight means you’ll have plenty of time to ask questions and not wait around for a large group.
What to Expect
Your day trip begins with pickup from your Lisbon accommodation, where you’ll board an air-conditioned coach destined for Sintra.
First up is Pena National Palace, a UNESCO World Heritage Site characterized by lemon-yellow domes and pink walls. Tour the palace with your small group before heading to the Palace of Queluz. Next, you’ll have ample time to explore.another UNESCO-listed area: the historic center of Sintra.
Enjoy free time to wander and purchase lunch before you reconvene with your guide and travel to Cabo da Roca, Europe’s westernmost point. See, too, the beaches of Cascais and the Gardens of the Casino of Estoril before your tour concludes with hotel drop-off.

Collection time from the hotel was 8:15 and we came back to Lisbon around 6. I guess this answers your question.

The guide gets the tickets when you get to the palaces but doesn't go in with you.
