Sintra Small-Group Tour from Lisbon with Cabo da Roca and Cascais
USD 68.41
Overview
Visit the atmospheric city of Sintra on a full-day, small-group tour from Lisbon, then spend the day exploring the Portuguese coast, Quinta da Regaleira, and Sintra’s historic center, a UNESCO World Heritage Site. With a mix of guided and independent time, you’ll discover romantic grottoes and colorful architecture, then get spectacular views to the Atlantic coast from the Serra de Sintra. This 9-hour Sintra tour includes pickup at centrally-located Lisbon hotels as well as entrance fees at the Quinta da Regaleira, and it’s limited to 8 people for a more personal experience.
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.

Pena Palace was amazing!

We enjoyed our tour of Sintra. The highlight was definitely the Pena Palace -- which was the final event of the day on our tour. After walking up the hill (after the ticket entrance), we waited in the line and walked through the interior of...More

Mediocre tour

The places we visited are amazing, but our tour guide, Joana, has a really poor knowledge about the history and artistic side of the monuments. I felt it was more like hiring a driver to rush the tourists to go from place to place. It...More

Hello, Thank you for your comment about our Sintra tour. It is with great sorrow we read that you didn't have an experience as desired; for us it's a good reason for self-analysis. We will realize what may have gone wrong and we will proceed...More

Well organised, well timed, wonderful tourguide

Tourguides make or break tours. Andre (hope I spelt his name right), who ran ours, did a splendid job - entertaining, explaining and looking out for everyone on the tour group with endless enthusiasm. Great tour commentary, even recommendations for lunch on top of all...More

Fabulous tour of Sintra

We had a fabulous tour of Sintra with our tour guide, Stan. Our tour started out going to Sintra and seeing Quinta de Regaleira. While the mansion was interesting, the grounds were amazing. We then proceeded to Cabo da Roca and then on to Cascais...More

Loved the Sintra attractions!

The tour was very well organized. We beat the crowds to Pena Palace, thanks to our tour guide. The Quinta da Regaleira gardens and wild masonic creations were equally good. That said, we wished the tour guide had perhaps slowed down a little as four...More

I was confused as well but yes, like everyone says, the tour includes a visit to Pena Palace but you just have to buy your ticket separately. This is normally visited at the end of the day and because of the queues the guide... More

In this tour you have around 1.50hours of freetime in Sintra in which you can have your lunch and some shopping etc etc. If you want to the guide will drop you off to the Pena Palace but don’t think they will to the Moor... More
