Secrets of Sintra and Cascais Private Tour
US$47.11
Overview
Visit Sintra, Cascais, and Cabo da Roca with a private guide on a full-day tour for your group of up to eight people. You'll have the flexibility to explore at your own pace as you take in Portugal's gorgeous beaches, a pretty fishing village, the westernmost point in Europe, and Sintra's historic center, a UNESCO World Heritage Site. This tour is priced per-vehicle for your convenience, with the option to meet the driver at the Sintra train station or at your accommodations in selected towns.
What to Expect

For the beginning of your private tour we will arrange a hotel pick up and meet you there. (Please advise accommodation address) 

We will drive along the Marginal Avenue, a winding waterfront road with sweeping views of the Tagus River and the Atlantic Ocean.  You will see beautiful views, white sandy beaches, fishing vessels, ancient fortresses and old mansions. Passing by Estoril, we will show you the largest casino in Europe.

At Cascais, take your time to walk around the scenic fishing village and a former vacation destination for the Portuguese Royal family. Bask in the narrow alleys and see the traditional Portuguese white houses, the stunning beaches and  relaxing shores.

Get sweeping ocean views from Cabo da Roca, the most western point of Europe . This place, “where the land ends and sea begins”, mastering the turbulent waters up to 140m high crushing loudly against the rocks offers a beautiful view of the wild coastline. Get you camera ready because Cabo da Roca is a real-life postcard!

Sintra is a magical, mountainous villa where all monuments have a majestic architecture full of stories and unraveling mysteries, stunning Gardens, centenary trees and ancient castles await you! But first we will take you throw the historic center where you will see the traditional Portuguese narrow streets and take pictures of the mesmerizing medieval National Sintra palace and its iconic chimneys.

Quinta da Regaleira, one of the most romantic places on planet Earth. The property has 4 hectares of luxurious gardens, an impotent palace with surrounding towers, a Chapple ,  enigmatic grottoes and countless mysteries and secrets for you to discover.

We pass through the Seteais Palace, and show you this neoclassical palace which is now a luxury hotel, restaurant and a tourist attraction included in the Cultural Landscape of Sintra, listed as World Heritage Site by UNESCO. Many famous personalities such as Agatha Christie, Harrison Ford, Brat Pitt or Johnny Deep have stayed at this fantastic place.

Pena Palace, a extravagant palace built on top of the mountain at 500m of Altitude dominates the whole of the coastline and is truly an image taken from a fairy-tale. This building is a mixture of Moorish and Manueline, architecture and is definitely a most see in Sintra!

At the end of our day of guaranteed adventures you'll be dropped off back at the place we initially met. Oh but before we return have a taste and experience one of the most delicious traditional pastry's of Sintra...
