    What to Expect
    Meet your guide in central Lisbon at Comercio Square (Praça do Comércio) for your Sintra, Pena Palace (Palácio da Pena), and Cascais half-day tour. Journey west to the UNESCO World Heritage Site Sintra, a storybook town situated in the foothills of the Sintra Mountains. Arrive and head to the opulent Pena Palace for a 1.5-hour walking tour.

    See the eclectic architectural styles of this 19th century Romanticist palace and learn how it served as a monastery and summer residence to Portuguese royalty. Absorb the ambiance of the ballroom where nobles courted one another and explore luxurious rooms filled with fine Edwardian and Victorian furniture. Then, grab a glimpse of beautiful artwork in the Arab Room before you walk the stately grounds of Pena Park to see an assortment of exotic plants and trees.

    Leave the palace and enjoy a half hour on you own to spend strolling the fairytale town of Sintra. Perhaps relax at a cafe for a tasty coffee and local treats like “queijadas de Sintra” or “travesseiros.” Or visit Sintra National Palace (Palácio da Vila), presently a historic house museum (own expense).

    Next, head to the westernmost point in Europe, Cabo da Roca (March to October only). Treasure views of waves crashing into the majestic cliffside and granite boulders. Relax for a 20-minute break snapping perfect panoramic photos and stellar selfies!

    Your final stop is the coastal town of Cascais, a former getaway of Portugal’s royal family in the late 19th and early 20th centuries. Spend 10 minutes combing the pretty quaint beaches before pocketing your camera and heading back to Lisbon where your tour ends.

    It was lovely trip however if you want to spend more time exploring sintra and Cascais then I wouldn't suggest booking this half day trip. The tour good was good, spoke good English and was knowledgeable. The only downfall was not being able to explore the pena Palace gardens

    We went on this tour on Oct 3. On the bus ride to the palace, I was impressed by the language skills of the guide, talking in French, english and portuguese. When we got there, howeve, it was very rushed. The group was relatively large. We had to walk a little uphill when

    We enjoyed the trip around the palace but could have done without going to the western most point of europe and the Cascias were a total waste of time and because it went down roads that were narrow and winding at least a quarter of the people on the bus were motion sick. It

    There was way too much to see in this half day trip and it would’ve been better had something been taken off the agenda so that we could actually spend time seeing the sites. On the way to the palace we had a brief stop in the shopping area. There was barely anytime to go in the

    Our tour guide for this tour was Catherine and she was fantastic! It was a large tour (full bus) but she kept all of us organized and never made it seem like there were a ton of us. Her English was great and she was very knowledgeable. She explained to us all how to meet and get
