This is the perfect tour for those who want to see many of Portugal’s historic highlights in a day. After a morning pickup, you’ll travel between dispersed sites in a comfortable vehicle. You won’t have to worry about this tour being overcrowded as it’s a small-group tour limited to 8 people. Visit multiple Sintra highlights, get ocean views at Cabo da Roca, and go to the spectacular Pena Palace.
Your journey to the royal village of Sintra begins with a hassle-free morning pickup at your hotel or accommodations in Lisbon area. The drive will take you along the Marginal Avenue, a winding waterfront road with sweeping views of the Tagus River and the Atlantic Ocean. You will see beautiful views, white sandy beaches, fishing vessels, ancient fortresses and old mansions. Passing by Estoril, see the largest casino in Europe. At Cascais, take your time to walk around the scenic fishing village and a former vacation destination for the Portuguese Royal family. Bask in the narrow alleys and see the traditional Portuguese white houses, the stunning beaches and relaxing shores.
Continue to postcard-perfect Cabo da Roca, continental Europe's westernmost point. Get sweeping ocean views from Cabo da Roca, the most western point of Europe . This place, where the land ends and sea begins, mastering the turbulent waters up to 140m high crushing loudly against the rocks offers a beautiful view of the wild coastline. Get you camera ready because Cabo da Roca is a real-life postcard!
Sintra is a magical, mountainous villa where all monuments have a majestic architecture full of stories and unravelling mysteries, stunning Gardens, centenary trees and ancient castles await you! Head to the top of Serra de Sintra, 500 meters above sea level, to visit the Palace of Pena. This building is a mixture of Moorish and Manueline, architecture and is definitely a must see in Sintra!
Spend some free time to have lunch (own expense). At the end of our day of guaranteed adventures you'll be dropped off back your original starting point - relax on your ride back to Lisbon.
We enjoyed our day out of the city; we wouldn't have been able to see Estoril, Cascais, and Cabo da Roca without this tour, and it would have been much more difficult to see Sintra and Pena Palace without the tour transport. Our day started...More
