About

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.

Great experience
I really enjoyed the sightseeing tour lead by Tania. Usually I prefer to explore things myself but I need to say this was more interesting. Tania was very knowledgeable , kind and helpful.

A day trip not to be forgotten
Oct. 2021
Thoroughly enjoyed our day trip to Sintra. Our tour guides were Carlos and Michaela. They were excellent at their job, very knowledgeable, funny, informative and also caring. My husband had a recent knee replacement and as there was a lot of walking both uphill and on cobblestones, also not forgetting climbing steep steps they made sure to take good care of him. We visited the Pena Palace, Cabo da Roca ( or as Carlos liked to call it " the end of the world "the main village of Sintra was very pretty. While there we visited a special pastry shop where the pastries were delicious. We journeyed on to Cascais and Estoril which look like nice places to spend a holiday. We travelled as a small group of 8 and Carlos made sure to introduce everybody to each other and we all had a lot of fun on the day. Definitley a trip that wont be forgotten. Thank you

Beautiful Sintra and Cascais
The day trip to Sintra is a must if you are in Lisbon. The town is a UNESCO protected heritage site. Our guide was Nuno and was thoroughly knowledgeable about the history of the area. We started the day with some time to wander the town, enjoyed the beautiful buildings and cobbled streets. and a little sample of the "pillow" pastry. From Sintra, we drove to the old fishing town of Cascais, which is now a bustling modern community. Then back to Sintra with a long visit to the Pena Palace. Nuno was the perfect guide all the way, lots of interesting history, friendly, attentive. Highly recommended.

Don't be fool, book this tour!
Oct. 2021
I had several options and I am glad I decided to choose this tour. I had no doubt that Sintra, Cabo da Roca, Cascais etc would be wonderful. I'm glad that also our guide/driver Katarina was wonderful. She was lovely, talkative and shared different interesting information. I usually don't give maximum rating, so 5 stars speak for themselves.

Great trip, book it!
My friends and I, a total group of five, booked this trip end of October. Definitely highly recommend it! Tanya was the most knowledgeable tour guide, who made the most of the experience. Good part is the small group (we were total 7), which made the whole trip relaxed and with personal touch. Definitely highly recommend it!

High fives for a great tour!
Sep. 2021
High fives to Lisbon Riders for our two wonderful small-group tours that included Sintra/Cascais and Sesimbra/Arrábida Wine Tasting. Tania, our guide for Sintra, was friendly, competent, knowledgeable, and we enjoyed her commentary. It was a busy day that flew by, with time on our own for lunch in Cascais. This is a tour you don’t want to miss. Of course, you could do it on your own, but you won’t be as efficient, or learn and see as much as we did. One other plus – our tours were English-speaking only. If you’ve ever been on a tour with multi-lingual translations, you know how tedious that quickly becomes. I highly recommend Lisbon Riders.

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!
