Select Date and Travellers
2 travellers
    What to Expect
    Depending on the start time chosen at checkout, your half-day tour begins with pickup from your Lisbon hotel. Following a short drive, you’ll arrive in Sintra and ascend to the summit of the forest-clad Sintra Mountain.

    Stop first at the atmospheric Castle of the Moors, whose position at 1,351 feet (412 meters) above sea level commands views all the way to the Atlantic Ocean.

    Then, proceed to Pena National Palace, a fairytale castle characterized by lemon yellow domes, to take a tour of the UNESCO World Heritage Site.

    From here, you’ll visit the mysterious estate of Quinta da Regaleira, Monserrate Palace, and Cabo da Roca, the most western point in mainland Europe.

    Your tour concludes with hotel drop-off in Lisbon.
