MAIN INFO

The crown jewel, multi award-winning and best seller tour, this is a classic experience one must have when in Lisbon. It’s a breathtaking journey with jaw-dropping views and mystical locations. We start this unforgettable voyage with a 29 km (18-mile) trip from Lisbon as we drive along the Marginal Avenue, a winding waterfront road with sweeping views of the Tagus river and the Atlantic Ocean.

As we reach Cascais, take your time to walk around and bask in the narrow alleys or just relax at the beachfront for a few moments. Know why today it’s an elitist and chic hotspot, after being a refuge during World War II for numerous royal families in Europe. Then we continue to Cabo da Roca, the westernmost point of continental Europe. Ready your camera because the views are real postcards!

The best selling tour from Lisbon, an instant classic! Don’t waste time comparing it with cheap copies: our tour of Sintra is the one that spends more time in the village so you can explore 2 monuments freely!

From there we reach Sintra, whose cultural landscape is a UNESCO World Heritage Site. Before exploring its historic center, we will go to the Quinta da Regaleira, one of the most romantic places you’ll ever see. The property has 4 hectares, a palace, lush gardens, lakes, grottoes and enigmatic constructions, places that hide mysterious meanings evoked by orders such as Freemasonry and the Knights Templar.

After lunch, enjoy some free time to explore the village center before heading to Pena Palace. It will be easy to fall in love at first sight! Pena is much more than a castle, it’s a unique expression of the architectural Romanticism, something out of a fairy tale, situated approximately 500 meters above sea level. It is also a World Heritage Site, blended from many styles: gothic, neo-Manuelin, neo-Islamic and neo-Renaissance. A perfect way to end this day before returning to Lisbon.
