Take a short walking tour around the village, where sights include the Quinta da Regaleira and medieval National Palace of Sintra. Get the chance to try some of the region's products, and compensate for all those calories you lost while visiting the monument. This tour includes a visit to the Regaleira Palace and its surrounding gardens (tickets not included). If you would rather visit the Castle of the Moors or the Pena Palace at the top of Sintra Hills (tickets not included), please ask your guide when the tour starts to coordinate drop-off and pickup at one of the monuments.

Excelent opportunity to visit great places in one day!

In general tour is very good, driver/guide is very friendly, kind and sympatic young Manuel. We would extend time we spend in Sintra old town in exchange for not so necessary photo opportunity of Pena palace. Quinta de Regaleria is a true jewel of Sintra and we highly recommend it.

Excellent!

Although we started a bit late, the day was perfect. Sintra was amazing. We tasted different cheeses and wines. Then we explored Regaleira for about two hours. Our tour guide was excelent. She stoped a few times when we were getting back to Lisbon from Cabo da roca. We stopped that we could walk on the beach in Cascais.

Marvellous day. Start to finish excellent. Guide superb. Very pleasant

This was a great day. Sintra is a must see and his UNESCO status is well earned. The tour covers good ground later in day but is never tiresome as the views are spectacular. The extras of local cheese/wine tasting were superbly presented and our lunch provided was beyond expectation. Most importantly our guide was brilliant. He struck the perfect balance between information and enthusiasm. I could not rate this trip highly enough.
