Meet your private guide and driver at your accommodation in Lisbon. Embark on an 8-hour private tour to Sintra to learn about the history, culture and traditions of this charming village.
Make your first stop at the 18th-century Palace of Queluz, once the official residence of King D. Pedro IV, then continue to the quaint village of Sintra, a UNESCO World Heritage Site. Walk through the strikingly picturesque streets that seem to contain a shrine, chapel or fountain around every corner. See the Sintra National Palace, then ascend to the Moorish Castle, home to original walls dating from the 8th century. Have your camera ready for sweeping views over the surrounding region.
Admire a mix of architectural styles in both the interior and exterior of Pena Palace, one of the best examples of Romanticism from the 19th century. Continue to the westernmost point in continental Europe, complete with coastal views of Cascais and Estoril.
In Colares, explore the cellars of Adega regional de Colares. With 2 centuries of wine producing history, a visit to this cellar can teach you all about wine producing in the region, including a tasting of the products.
On the way back to Lisbon, visit Cascais, a former fishing village turned royal getaway and vacation spot for the Portuguese elite.
Your 8-hour private tour ends with drop-off back at your Lisbon hotel.
