What to expect
  • Your private Lisbon shore excursion begins once you dock at Lisbon’s historic port and meet your expert local guide and driver. Get acquainted with your guide, as well as your sleek Volkswagen Beetle, and then start your journey.   Feel the wind breeze past you as your driver takes you along the Portuguese coast, passing beautiful views of craggy ocean bluffs. Listen to historical anecdotes about this storied land as you make your way to your first stop. Arrive at the charming village of Sintra, once a royal retreat for Portugal’s upper-crust, and today it remains a popular draw for visitors who come to see the UNESCO-listed town center. After strolling the scenic cobbled streets and admiring the quaint architecture, buckle up and enjoy a scenic drive through Sintra National Park, past the Monserrate Palace and Quinta da Regaleira estate. When you reach Cape Roca (Cabo da Roca), Europe’s westernmost point, enjoy ample time to admire the oceanic views. Indulge in a glass of ginjinha, a traditional Portuguese liqueur, and a pastry, then move on to Cascais.  Soak up the classical beach views of the popular resort town of Cascais, and see Hell’s Mouth (Boca do Inferno), a sea cave. Continue along the Tagus River to Belém, an eastern district of Lisbon. Here, take in more views and stop at a local cafe for light bites, including canned sardines, roasted chorizo sausage, and a classic pastel de nata. When you’re belly is full, return to your port for a timely departure.  Worry-free Shore Excursion:

Fun way to see Lisbon, Sintra and Cascais
Riding in a vintage VW beetle was an interesting experience! You’d get some looks from curious passersby but it’s all part of the fun.

Special shoutout to our guide, Stewart! He provided us with great help, and was familiar with the roads up to Sintra (managed to get through to another route when there was a jam). He went beyond just being a tour guide around Sintra and Cascais, to share with us some of his favourite local restaurants, and hangouts (to try at our own time) which we enjoyed very much.
