We had a fabulous day with Filipa! Our family (two seniors, one adult and one child) did a private tour to Sintra. We explored Pena Palace, the town of Sintra, Cabo da Roca, Cascais, and drove along the coast back to Lisbon. Filipa was incredible from our first communications to the end of the tour. She was knowledgeable and personable and we really enjoyed all of our conversations with her. She was engaging and flexible and all of us had a great day. She went out of her way to make the day fun for my 9-year-old. Highly recommended!!

Overview of your tour
Just a 30-minute drive from Lisbon, Sintra is a fairytale town on many travelers’ list of must-see destinations. We’ll begin our private Sintra exploration with bright and early hotel pick-up in Lisbon to beat the crowds. From there, we’ll make our first stop to explore the Pena Park and Palace and take in the extravagant architecture of the palace.
We’ll then venture into the town center to enjoy a snack in Sintra before traveling to the coastline for lunch — see picturesque clifftop villages well worth a visit! Whitewashed houses perch on the cliff’s edge, and from here, we can appreciate 360-degree views out over the ocean.
Continuing along the coast, we’ll make our way to Cabo da Roca, the westernmost point of mainland Europe, to soak up views over the Atlantic Ocean. During this private tour have the chance to see some of the most iconic locations of this unique landscape such as Pena Park and Palace, Castle of the Moors, Quinta da Regaleira, Cabo da Roca and more.
This private tour to Sintra provides a great deal of flexibility. You are able to customize your tour and make any desired changes during the tour time.

Tour today was wonderful!! Andre was very informative and shared so much good information not only about the tour sites but was very knowledgeable about the history of Portugal and its popular sites. He also gave us recommendations on restaurants and things not to miss while we are here, a very good day!!
We are having tea with our pastries and reliving the happy memories of today. We really, really enjoyed meeting you and appreciated all that you shared. We are also very happy you suggested early admission to Pena Palace. It was so worth it! We also loved Regaleira! Both places are a photographer’s paradise. Thank you for being so warm, welcoming and patient. Will definitely recommend you and the tour to others.
