Know More about this tour

Your guide will pick you up at your centrally-located Lisbon hotel and transport you westward via air-conditioned vehicle. Drive along Marginal Avenue, a winding waterfront road with sweeping views of the Tagus River and Atlantic Ocean. Leave the April 25 Bridge behind as you follow the railway line, passing white sandy beaches, fishing vessels, ancient fortresses, and old mansions.

Pass the picturesque Portuguese Riviera, a strip running through Oeiras, Estoril, and Cascais. Snap photos of the Casino Estoril, Europes largest casino, believed to be Ian Flemings inspiration for the James Bond novel Casino Royale. As you pull into Cascais, take your time strolling around the chic holiday destination, once a fishing village, then a refuge for royal families during World War II. Explore narrow alleys and glimpse traditional Portuguese white houses, or relax by the beach.

Continue to postcard-perfect Cabo da Roca, continental Europes westernmost point. Pass Guincho, one of the regions most famous beaches, popular amongst surfers and watersports enthusiasts for its strong winds and inimitable waves.

Enjoy some free time admiring the landscape, then continue to UNESCO World Heritage-listed Sintra. Explore its historic center, then head to the romantic Quinta da Regaleira. Wander through its four hectares containing a palace, lush gardens, lakes, grottoes and mysterious constructions that evoke Freemasons and the Templars.

Head to the top of Serra de Sintra, 500 meters above sea level, to visit the Palace of Pena. Admire the fairytale example of architectural Romanticism that blends several styles, including Gothic, neo-Manuelin, neo-Islamic, and neo-Renaissance. Enjoy a delicious traditional pastry, a travesseiro or a queijada, before settling in for your ride back to Lisbon.
