Come with us and explore Sintra through the eyes of a local, exploring genuine out of the beaten track places, avoiding the crowds of mass tourism, without missing the main attractions. We will start by approaching the cultural part, knowing Sintra’s fascinating history and development while seeing it’s most iconic monuments. (You will get lost in QUINTA DA REGALEIRA magic gardens.) Then we will STOP FOR A NICE TYPICAL LUNCH on one of my favorite local family’s restaurants. After this I will take you to the place that saw me grow, a ROMANTIC PICTUREQUE VILLAGE (is like turning the clock back a few 100 years), on the top off the mountain with privileged views to the region where we can enjoy some peace and quiet! At last we will do an OFF ROAD SAFARI, discovering the most hidden places in the natural park and coast line, where we can feel the true magic of Sintra, admiring beautiful scenic viewpoints lost in nature to places like CABO DA ROCA, ADRAGA BEACH and MORE ( I don’t tell more because I wanna keep them secret). This experience is a product of my entire life, my passions, my love for nature and culture. Designed for you to understand why Sintra is such a magical place and why the special relationship between men and this place. Will be an unforgettable day:)
I am a Native of Sintra and together with my co-host Alexandra we gone hare with our passion and secrets about this wonderful place. Since my childhood I am passionate about my home and spent a lot of my time studying and listening to Sintra's history and tales. I am also a nature lover; this made me discover the most hidden and beautiful places in the natural park. Later In my life I fell in love with the ocean thanks to surf and spear fishing, which gave the opportunity to discover magical places along the coast line. Alexandra is a nature lover who grew up and lived between Lisbon and Sintra, who found in Sintra the connection to nature through hiking in the natural park. Today I am a licensed local guide and together we allow you to experience Sintra at its very best.
