The meeting point is at my office in Sintra which is easy to reach from Lisbon downtown (Rossio) by train. In my office I'll explain the itinerary, keeping in mind that the tour is customizable to your interests. In general the tour starts in the early morning heading to Pena Palace on the top of the mountain. We park the jeep nearby and I'll lead you inside walking through the gardens and Palace. I do interpretation of the landscape around but also about the history of Pena and the area. After the monuments, which can be Pena combined with the Moorish Castle or another monument (like Monserrate) we will drive to the coastline where we have several stops: from north to south we go to the Atlantic villages like Azenhas or Ulgueira and visit natural landmarks like Adraga beach and doing some off road along the cliffs to reach Roca. The Jeep tour has much more to see on the way back to Sintra, passing through the dense forest in the mountain and visiting some summits for the viewpoints. You will get the best of the monuments, the best of the coast and the best of the Sintra forest.
I am a geographer who started studying the region of Sintra in 2009. My study included different subjects such as history and botany. This knowledge gave me a wide understanding of Sintra's landscapes, its vegetation, its geology, the climate and relationship with its history. I have already a long experience of organizing tours for people with different interests. So, for me it is very important to be versatile and customize the tour to each person. That allows for a very personalized experience: more history or more nature depending what you are looking for.
