Don't miss this chance to see one of the most beautiful places in Portugal, if not Europe.

A former playground for the royal family, Sintra's exquisite 19th Century architecture makes the entire town a UNESCO World Heritage Site.
Your half-day trip to Sintra starts by the Camões Monument in Largo de Camões and finishes by Quinta da Regaleira. Bring your cameras and enjoy this spectacular day out with us. You won't forgive yourself if you miss Sintra!
Discover the buildings and castles of Sintra
As you arrive in Sintra, the charm of the cobbled stones and traditional shops will immediately take you in. Then as you look up towards the hills, you will see different castles speckled upon the horizon. We will visit the spectacular National Palace, the best-preserved royal residence in Portugal. Your guide will give you an insight into the lives of the kings and queens who have lived here.
Explore the gardens
What might be even more impressive than the ancient castles are the numerous gardens. Your ticket comes with entrance to the Regaleria Park that is filled with lakes, grottoes, hidden tunnels and beautiful ruins. Discover the Initiation Wells hidden in the garden that used to be the site of rituals.
Put on your walking shoes and get lost in this enchanted town!

We took a free walking tour with Eduardo that was awesome and he told us, as many locals did that Sintra is a must during your stay. The decision to book did not disappoint. We had planned on ‘doing it alone’ and we are so happy we did not and met our guide Fred who was sensational. He took us on a journey that was fun, informative and for five hours entertaining and caring of all in our group. Make sure Sintra is in your list it is amazing and go with a guide. I would highly recommend this company and Fred as your guide to your SintraexperienceSee more reviews
