What to Expect
Meet your guide in a central Lisbon location and head out for your half-day trip to Cascais, Estoril, and Sintra. The first stop is the quaint, inland town of Sintra and a tour of the National Palace. Learn about Portugal’s rich history and its royal past while strolling the grand halls of the palace. Next, head over to the westernmost point in mainland Europe, Cabo da Roca and gaze upon the expansive Atlantic Ocean and the local lighthouse. Hop back on the coach and cruise to the cliff of Boca do Inferno—Hell’s Mouth—that was created over thousands of years of waves crashing against its cliffside. Enjoy the views of the Tagus River and coastal road to Cascais from the comfort of your coach. Learn the history of the small coastal villages on a brief walking tour once you arrive in Cascais. Then board the coach for the final time on your return to Lisbon, passing Estoril along the way.

I wanted so much to see Pena Palace but it’s not included on this tour. I should have read the description better cos to go to Sintra and not get to see that was terribly disappointing. Also the constant translating got annoying. It’s neat that the tour guides can speak so many

The places looked very nice, but the trip was rushed. We only got to see one castle in Sintra. The poor guide had to translate in 4 languages each time we move from one room to the next! She seemed tired, and we wasted precious time! It was night when we got to Cascais, and had

Dear Adriana S, Thank you for your comment. We are sorry that we were not able to provide you with a completely satisfying experience. In fact, Sintra is a place with many things to see. However, being a World Heritage Site and an emblematic town, atracts many tourists at this time of the year. Our staff tries very hard to provide a special experience for those who visit us, so we seek to translate the information into the languages of our clients' countries. We understand that this may cause some tiredness and even some lack of interest on some clients, but it is not always possible to guarantee that the groups are linguistically homogeneous. We are sorry that you didn't appreciate Cascais as it deserves, but we cannot control delays that are due to the high number of tourists or traffic. For any other suggestion, please send us an email to customercare@cityrama.pt.

Our guide Anna was amazing. Guide was in Portuguese, English and Spanish and a huge amount of information was given. Sintra and Cascais are both beautiful and my only complaint would be that we didn't get enough time to explore them more but then I probably should have booked a
