Private - Unique Sintra & Cascais Villages
On this private Lisbon tour, you'll visit two scenic villages that have distinct personalities. During this private tour of Sintra and Cascais, prepare to see some incredible natural landscapes and manmade structures. You'll be reaching for your camera every minute! Because this is a private tour, you can expect personalized attention from your tour guide on this unforgettable experience.
The first stop on this tour is Sintra, a UNESCO World Heritage site since 1995. Before you start sightseeing, you'll get to enjoy their famous puff pastries, known as travesseiros (pillow). These light pastries are rolled and folded seven times before being filled with almond-and-egg-yolk cream. There are also their renowned cheesecakes, which are so good that they were once used a means of paying rent!
Now that your appetite is satisfied, continue to the amazing Pena Palace. The current palace dates back to 1839, when King Ferdinand II bought the ruins of the Hieronymite Monastery of Our Lady of Pena and started to adapt it for use as a residence according to his romantic taste. You'll also visit the beautiful cape Cabo Da Roca before arriving at Cascais, a former fishing village.
At Cascais, explore various nearby sites like the Boca do Inferno, a famous cavern on the seaside cliffs. There's also the chance to try Santini's Gelati, whose famous ice cream has delighted guests for over six decades. Once time is up, you'll return to Lisbon in the company of your small group and tour guide. Book this private Lisbon tour today for an unforgettable Portugal experience.
Please Note: The Pena Palace entrance fee (13 EUR per person) is not included in the tour price.
