Full description
Our best-seller tour will allow you to discover the best of Lisbon and the surrounding areas of Sintra and the Estoril coast.

Starting at the door of your hotel, one of our Tour Guides will drive you straight to the town of Cascais, through a very special road named “Marginal” by the Portuguese, running always parallel to the white sandy beaches. This is the Estoril Coast, where Cascais belongs. Once a small fishing village only, the Cascais town managed to maintain its seafaring traditions combined with the aristocratic and royal presences of the late 19th and beginning of the 20th century. Passing through its animated town centre you’ll find the cosmopolitan life side by side with the Atlantic.

The tour will follow to Sintra, where hundreds of years of history and culture await you. Doing a short walk in the old city centre you’ll find yourself surrounded by the old houses now converted into small quaint handicraft shops and traditional pastry shops. It will be time to continue to one of the highlights of the day: the Pena Palace. Driving around the mountain passing by amazing chalets and aristocratic residences you will reach the 19th century Pena Palace in the most incredible combination of architectural styles, colors and shapes that you will find in Portugal.

After browsing through hundreds of years of history it will be time for lunch and relax.

At the beginning of the afternoon you will arrive to the capital of Portugal. Lisbon was colonized by many civilizations along the centuries: Phoenicians, Greeks, Carthaginians, Romans, Moors and finally the Portuguese after 1147. We will visit St. George Castle, including its surrounding quarter and Alfama, Lisbon's oldest quarter. This city is linked with the heroic deeds of the Portuguese maritime exploration, in the 15th and 16th centuries. This was the Age of Discoveries and the Golden Era of Portugal, transforming Lisbon into the opulent centre of a vast empire. Part of the wealth from these expeditions was used to build magnificent monuments in a unique Portuguese style: the extravagant Manueline architectural style, best typified in Jerónimos Monastery (closed on Monday). Some of these monuments can still be seen, especially in the area of Belém. But Lisbon has more than just monuments! We will visit also the traditional commerce zones of the city, with their 18th century buildings: the Downtown and the Chiado.
