Full description
The first stop is at the National Palace of Queluz. Initially a rest stop for the nobility, it later became the official residence of Prince John VI. Its beautiful gardens and rococo architecture dazzle visitors with its sumptuousness. Continue on to the center of Sintra, where you can visit the castle or the National Palace. Walk through the colorful streets of the village, contrasting with the bright green of the mountain. The morning will not end before a stop at the Quinta de Monserrate and Quinta da Regaleira, a fruit mansion imagined by a man in love with the arts.  If you choose the lunch option, you can taste one of the best Portuguese dishes. If not, there is plenty of places for you to eat nearby. The afternoon begins with a visit to the most famous and magical palace on this tour, the Pena Palace. Built 500 meters above sea level, it is considered one of the most beautiful palaces in Europe and in the world. Its colorful architectural extravagance with its neo-Moorish elements gives off an exotic character that is accentuated by the lush vegetation of Pena Park. The return to Lisbon passes through the picturesque village of Cascais, where you have free time to sit by the sea, sip a beer with a seafood dish or eat one of the best ice creams in the world. Back on the road, pass the Estoril coast with its vast and beautiful beaches. In Lisbon, you are returned to your hotel, with the certainty of having spent a memorable day in dreamy locations.

Our tour guide, Gustavo, was amazing! He was so proud of his country and wanted us to be just as excited to experience it as he was. He picked us up at our Airbnb in downtown Lisbon and drove us to Sintra and Cascais telling us of the history the whole time. 100% recommend!!

reasonable

When we bought it we thought it was a guided tour, it was actually a driver who got so lost by Sintra that we did half the tours. The guide as a person was very good.

Sintra is such a beautiful city and the tour guide was very polite

I requested a Spanish speaker and the answer was Yes, available, however, he did not speak Spanish. It was Ok, since I put the request on the last minute.
