Highlights
    What to Expect
    Start the day with 9am pickup at your centrally-located Lisbon hotel, then begin the 18-mile (29-km.) trip to Sintra in a climate-controlled minivan, following Marginal Avenue for sweeping views of the Tagus River and Atlantic Ocean. Leave the 25 de Abril Bridge behind as you parallel the railway line, passing white sandy beaches, fishing vessels, ancient fortresses, and old mansions.

    As you drive along the Portuguese Riviera, snap photos of the Casino Estoril, Europe’s largest casino, then pause to stretch your legs in Cascais, a fishing village turned chic holiday destination. Explore narrow alleys and glimpse traditional Portuguese white houses, or simply find a spot to relax by the beach.

    Continue to picture-perfect Cabo da Roca, continental Europe’s westernmost point, and spot some of the surfers at Guincho, one of the region’s most famous beaches.

    Upon arrival in Sintra, explore the historic center then head to the romantic Quinta da Regaleira estate for a guided tour of the palace, lush gardens, lakes, grottoes, and buildings with mysterious links to the Freemasons and the Knights Templar.

    Head to the top of Serra de Sintra to visit the Park and National Palace of Pena (entrance not included). Admire the fairytale example of architectural Romanticism that blends several styles, including Gothic, Neo-Manueline, Neo-Islamic, and Neo-Renaissance. The tour includes a delicious traditional pastry, such as an egg-filled pastry travesseiro or the tart-like queijada, a final sweet treat before the trip back to Lisbon and drop-off at the Lisbon city center.

    Had a fantastic day on our tour to Sintra. The palace and the gardens are amazing. I would definitely recommend doing this tour with a guide as the information gained about the initiation well and the history of Freemasons etc would probably be missed otherwise....More

    This is a must do if staying in Lisbon for a few days. Well organized and beautiful places to visit. Miguel, our tour guide, was PHENOMENAL. He was a wealth of information and was able to bring the sites alive!

    We had a wonderful local guide that showed us the best places in Sintra, Cascais and cabo da roca. It was indeed professional but also informal. Pena Palace was closed due to possible fire.

    I believe it is fairly easy to get tickets to tour the palace, but we were told if there is a large crowd at the palace you will spend a lot of time in the line/queue waiting to get in the palace and it will be slow moving... More
