About
You can visit two of Portugal's most charming towns on a day trip from Lisbon that goes beyond the city to explore the Sintra Mountains, a place notoriously difficult to reach independently. You'll tour Sintra's Pena National Palace and the town's UNESCO-listed historic center, and than travel to the Atlantic coast to see Cascais and Cabo da Roca, the westernmost point in continental Europe.

Pause to taste travesseiros (a beloved local sweet that's stuffed with almonds), and meet back up for the trip to the Atlantic Ocean, passing the pretty towns of Colares and Azenhas do Mar. Pause at Cabo da Roca, and then visit Cascais, a fishing village turned elegant seaside escape. Before the return to to Lisbon, you'll stop by a famed gelato shop that's among the best in the country. Your tour ends at the original departure point.

Informative and worthwhile
I took the tour with Tania to Sintra and Cascais. Tania arrived right on time, was very friendly and full of information and historical facts. Although we hit multiple spots, the schedule didn’t seem rushed. I would have liked more time to explore Cascais since though. Since that’s where we had lunch, there wasn’t much time afterwards to explore the area or even get a good look at the beach. Otherwise, it was great and I would definitely book with this tour company and Tania again!

Fun and informative
Aug 2021
Our guide Catarina was great! She was very knowledgeable and a good storyteller, but also fun and making jokes. We were a small group of 5 tourists and she took us in a van to more places than I expected. Apart from telling us a lot about the history of the places we were seeing, she also shared interesting facts about the Portuguese people, the culture, and the language, and gave us some good food recommendations. All in all, it was a really pleasant experience and a great and fun way to learn new things!

This was the best tour I have been on! Tania was an excellent tour guide and made the experience so enjoyable. We had time to stop and get pastries and coffee, we took pictures which Tania offered to help, we stopped at the beach, and had free time to get lunch on our own (make sure you have your negative covid test or vaccination card if dining) Overall we had a lovely time, Sintra is a beautiful place and our tour guide was so informative she taught us so much about Lisbon and the places we visited. I wish all tour guides were like Tania! I would recommend this tour to anyone!

Perfectly paced full day with a great guide
An excellent full day tour with enough activities to feel like we accomplished something, but enough breaks and free time to not be overwhelming! Tanya was a wonderful guide, pleasant, funny, inquisitive, and full of information (plus excellent pastry and lunch recommendations).

We haven’t taken the other Sintra tours, but DEFINITELY recommend this one.

Pickup and drop off in the city center is great if you’re staying downtown.

This is a must do in Lisbon. We had a great guide, Catarina, she tells a lot of things about Portugal, Lisbon, and Sintra. The palace is also very beautiful. Worth the price.
