Sintra is an enchanted place. Not even the most romantic poet could fully describe its beauty. A fascinating conjugation of episodes, some natural and other historical, that produced a remarkable result. From a king who was more interested in gardening than in politics, to an extravagant Brazilian merchant who decided to build a spiral well in the garden of his palace that falls into darkness. We will walk through these stories while exploring the viewpoints and hidden places that allow us to know the various faces of Sintra. In the morning I will challenge you to explore the mysterious Quinta da Regaleira so that you can spiral down into darkness. After lunch we will stop at the colorful and emblematic Palacio da Pena which offers an incredible view from the top of the mountain. We will also visit the westernmost point of the European continent and drive through the magical mountain forest on the way to Pena Palace. The perfect finale will be the ride through the coastline that will lead us to the pretty village of Cascais. IMPORTANT NOTES: - By default i will use the mini van so please send me a request to use the convertible car in case you want - And if you want to do the experience with the convertible car no matter what, i recommend you to book the private group option because if i get more than 3 bookings for the same day i will need to take the mini van.
I grew up in Sintra and have lived here ever since. But it was after becoming tour guide of this amazing region that I got to know the rich and remarkable history of this unique place of Portugal. In 2016, i started my own tourism company and i envision a style of tours where each pace and each way of feeling experiencies are respected so my goal is to provide flexibility and freedom to make everyone happy at their own way. As a guide I'll cut through the lines and save us time to enjoy Sintra to the fullest in one day.
