Escape the hustle and bustle of Lisbon on a full-day tour of Sintra and Cascais, 2 small villages within easy access of the city center, and located in an area of protected natural beauty.

    Despite the day was not as sunny as we expected and it was foggy and we couldn't have the view from Sintra, Ana has been a great guide and made our experience that day perfect. This is the best way to do Sintra, Cabo da Roca and Cascais Tour and I highly recommend. We even got water and could choose another drop off, which is normally at the place you're staying.

    We enjoyed the day and our guide John very much. Despite the crowds John made sure we avoided lines and saw the major sites. We were not hurried and John gave us time to savor the superb weather. He was knowledgeable about the sites and Portugese history, especially since he began his work as a guide a year ago.

    We had a very short stay in Lisbon and this tour was a great way to get a feel for the area. We (family from California) were joined with nice folks from Italy and the UK. Our guide Jon was great! He took us to 5 stops, including the lovely coastal Cascais and the western most point of Europe. We never felt rushed or overwhelmed with information and Jon added a lot of humor to the experience. Of course, smoking is much more common in Europe than the US, so my asthmatic daughter had to steer clear of second-hand smoke while waiting in line at Pena Palace. We highly recommend Around Lisbon.
