Overview of your tour

If world-class destinations, friendly guides, and personalized attention are your thing, then you’ve come to the right place. Let Portuguese for a Day help you explore the cultural landscape of this UNESCO World Heritage Site by delving deeper into the region than any other tour company around! We’ll pick you up from your central location in Lisbon — bright and early to beat the crowds — before we make our way to beautiful Pena Park and Palace (park entrance fee included)*. We’ll then head to Quinta da Regaleira, a beautiful estate dating back to the end of the Portuguese monarchy. Take your time to explore grottos, underground paths, an inverted tower, a waterfall, and many more unique surprises. Afterwards, stroll through the streets of Sintra and enjoy a typical Portuguese lunch (at your own cost) in one of the many traditional restaurants. We like to recommend some of our favorite places to eat, and we’ll be happy to point you in the right direction! With so many options available, you’re bound to find something to whet your appetite.

We’ll then cruise along the coast as far as Cabo da Roca, the westernmost point of continental Europe, to enjoy sweeping views out over the ocean. Finish your Sintra Day Tour with a stop in the charming fishing town of Cascais for an authentic Portuguese experience. We’ll then head back to Lisbon, and you should reach your accommodation by 5pm.
* To enter the palace, it is necessary to purchase an additional ticket. You can do so at the time of booking or on location. If you choose not to purchase a ticket, the park grounds are extensive, and there is plenty to keep you busy!

Frequently Asked Questions

Where is my pickup location?

Show Answer

If hotel or apartment pickup is offered for your tour, then your pickup location should be at your accommodation. If we are unable to access/stop in your street with the van, we will arrange a convenient meeting point. We only provide pickups in central Lisbon hotels or short-term rentals.

Is the ticket entrance for Pena Park and Palace included?

Show Answer

On a Small Group Sintra Tour you have access to Pena Park and the surrounding grounds. You can opt to purchase entry to Pena Palace at the time of booking on our website or on location. However, if you choose not to enter Pena Palace, there is still plenty to see and explore!

Do you allow solo travelers?

Show Answer

Yes! All of our tours require a minimum of 2 people to run; however, we welcome reservations from solo travelers (no need to purchase two tickets!). If there are fewer than two people booked on a tour, we will reschedule the tour for another day or offer you a different tour.
