Full description
Spend an entire day exploring Lisbon's surroundings on a tour that takes you to Sintra and Cascais. First visit the mysterious and fascinating village of Sintra, a UNESCO World Heritage Site, to explore its natural landscapes and cultural and natural heritage. Upon exploring the village, you will feel as though Sintra seems to have come straight from a fairy tale, with its many palaces and Romantic architecture. You will have time to enjoy lunch among the splendid scenery and may choose to enjoy a traditional meal at a local restaurant, or bring your own lunch and eat outside. Next, it is time to cross the mystic mountain of Sintra towards the Atlantic Ocean. Along the way, you will have the opportunity to see the quaint Colares village and to learn more about local wines dating to the 13th century. You’ll also see Praia das Maçãs, a small and popular local beach. Reaching the coast, you will make a stop in one of the most picturesque seaside towns, Azenhas do Mar, which has a stunning view overlooking the Atlantic Ocean. Next, you will be taken to the westernmost point of continental Europe. From here, you will climb down to the beach. Continue on to Cascais, a former fishing village that gained fame as a resort for Portugal's royal family in the late 19th century and early 20th century. At the end of the tour you will dropped off at the original departure point.

Thank you for organizing an utterly perfect day! We had a ball. The guides - Rita, Carolina and Ricardo - were a dream team. They shared so much good information with us. We thoroughly enjoyed their company -- lots of shared laughs. It was truly a memorable experience. Warmly, Molly and crew
