You get about an hour to explore the town of Sintra. You do not get to tour the palace on your own except for a small period of time. There are other castles that you can visit, but this tour only covered the Pena Palace.

Our pick-up point was in front of the Armani Exchange store (near the Gloria Funicular), if your pick-up location is the same then you’re looking at about a ten minute walk according to google maps!
