Sintra tour

Full day tour

Private tour – Departure from Lisbon

Sintra is one of the most sought after tourist destinations in Portugal, for the perfect combination of nature and architecture, for the historical and architectural value and the unique quietness.

Put your walking shoes on for a day full of delightful details, romantic atmospheres and breathtaking views. Wander the charming streets of the old town and enjoy the quietness of the Sintra-Cascais National Park.

Visit this picturesque village, characterized by its palaces and villas, used to be the holiday retreat for the royal family and wealthy families. It is considered as the Portuguese Riviera. Its proximity to the Atlantic Ocean and beaches makes it the perfect spot for the summer.

Sintra was also one of the favorite sets for Portuguese writer Eça de Queirós. The mysterious and romantic feel of the village and its surroundings has inspired writers from different times and ages. On his poem ‘Childe Harold’s Pilgrimage’, Lord Byron refers to Sintra as “glorious eden’.

On the outskirts of Lisbon, Sintra is home to the last Portuguese Royal residence. It was used by the royal family until 1910 and we invite you for a visit to the old palace.

But the crown jewel on our Sintra tour is the Pena Palace. The palace and the Pena Park are a product of King Ferdinand II’s taste for the 19th-century romanticism.

Quinta da Regaleira is a 4-hectare estate filled with enigmatic buildings. Some say it hides symbols related to alchemy, Masonry, the Templar Knights and the Rosicrucians.

The gardens of Quinta da Regaleira are wonderful, particularly for those traveling with kids as the property has plenty of beautiful photo spots and small castles to climb. Make sure not to miss the initiation well, Regaleira ́s most famous attraction.

On our way back to Lisbon, we take you on a charming detour, to visit Cascais, a touristic village near the sea with a luxurious lifestyle. The tour ends with a fantastic drive from Cascais, along the Portuguese Riviera.
