Full description
You’ll first head towards the picturesque Sintra adorned with exquisite palaces, mansions and romanticism. Sintra is a World Heritage area that is a treasure for its natural attractions, monuments and unexplainable magic. You’ll see the most important landmarks in a blessing experience by Beetle while the landscape will change from mountain, to wild and rugged beaches, and city life.
Sintra’s gastronomy is varied and rich and will make this experience unforgettable. With regard to sweets, a sure highlight is the “Queijadas de Sintra”’ (Sintra tartlets), an ancient sweet which dates back to the Middle Ages. Others that can be tasted include ”Travesseiros” and ”Fofos de Belas”, in addition to jam produced according to traditional preparation methods. 

See the westernmost point in Europe (Cabo da Roca) and taste the flavors of Sintra before heading down the coast to Cascais, the village with the best hot dog trailer and the best views in the city. Following the coastline, you’ll watch as the ocean becomes a river, you’ll taste the special flavors of Belém, and you’ll finish off your tour with a traditional bifana (a yummy pork sandwich).

*Included: Liquor and Portuguese pastry, traditional tapas, drinks.
