Kick off your adventure soaking up the dreamy landscapes of mountaintop Sintra and visit the fairy-tale Pena Palace. After exploring Sintra’s UNESCO-listed historic center, head to the coast to take in the views from Cape of Roca, the westernmost point of continental Europe, and visit the lively seaside resort of Cascais.
  • Travel the region with ease in air-conditioned vehicle and benefit from your professional guide’s insights as you move
  • Visit the UNESCO-listed Sintra, Pena Palace, Cascais Bay and more

What to Expect
Begin your day with pick-up from your Lisbon hotel by air-conditioned vehicle. As you head for the Sintra hills, admire the forest and listen as your private guide explains the region’s history. Arrive to Pena Palace and Park and select between a guided tour of the historic site’s exterior or interior (entrance fees not included). Next, head to Sintra Old Town to browse its shops or try some Portuguese delicacies (own expense). Then, visit the Cabo da Roca, the westernmost tip of Europe, and admire the cliff views of the Atlantic, before travelling to Cascais Bay on the Portuguese Riviera. Pause for lunch (own expense) and use your free time to stroll on the beach, take a swim or sample some local ice-cream. Finally, relax on the drive back to Lisbon and gaze at views of the Estoril coast. Conclude your trip with drop off back to your hotel.

Sandra and Louis were excellent tour guides who were very knowledgeable about history and architecture but also knew how to efficiently navigate the popular sights. We would not hesitate to use their services again and would highly recommend No Map Tours.
