Discover the fairy tale land of Sintra at your own pace on this private 4-hour tour from Lisbon. Alongside your personal guide, you’ll visit areas of outstanding natural and architectural beauty: absorb views of the Atlantic Ocean from Cabo da Roca, Europe’s westernmost point; gaze at the turrets of the Castle of the Moors; and explore the UNESCO-listed historical center of Sintra. Hotel pickup and drop-off are included.

What to Expect

Your journey into the story book world of Sintra begins at your Lisbon hotel, where you’ll greet your private guide and board an air-conditioned vehicle. Head first to Cabo da Roca, a rugged cliff from which absorbing views of the Atlantic Ocean can be enjoyed.

From Europe’s westernmost point, proceed to Praia da Ursa — a beautiful beach adorned with golden sands and unique rock formations — and then visit the Convent of the Capuchos, a rustic Franciscan convent carved into the rocks.

The next stop is the Castle of the Moors, an 8th-century fortress that reigns supreme from its vertiginous perch atop Sintra Mountain. Stroll along the ruined ramparts and battlements for phenomenal views.

Finally, disembark in the UNESCO-listed historical center of Sintra and explore cobbled streets flanked by quaint houses. Stop to sample a traditional Sintra pastry and then relax during the 1-hour journey back to your Lisbon hotel.

Brilliant Bruno

We could not have got so much from a day in Sintra without Bruno, a brilliant and really well informed host. Bruno navigated us around the crowds of visitors made our visits easy and convenient and never rushed us. An exceptionally informative and entertaining guide.

Our guide SOFIA was able to customize our day in Sintra. We were able to see and do so much, and avoid the crowds as well. I highly recommend her!

Are you able to do the tour on a different day? The Sunday that we visited Sintra was really busy, and our guide said that it was less busy on weekdays.
