What you'll do

Do you want to go to Sintra and see Pena palace but don't want to spend all day in HUGE LINES ?

Then it is your experience! It is a customised one, so we will enter with you to Pena palace and explain all!

I will pick you up in the central square of Lisbon and will bring you to Sintra - one of the most beautiful towns in the entire Portugal. It is located around 30 min away from Lisbon on the edge of the ocean.
We will get there by comfortable air-conditioning mini van with all the necessary insurances and licenses.
We will explore famous colourful Pena palace where I will show you my favourite spots and the best INSTA LOCATIONS! This is a castle which you cannot miss in Portugal, but if you go there in the morning or during lunch, you will most probably spend there 2 hours in line buying tickets. That is why we will come there in the end of the day when most of the tourists will go back home, and, I have a special skip the line access too.
We will visit Sintra town itself and explore it as well!
In the end I will bring you back to Lisbon to the same location!
Other things to note
Tickets to Pena Palace are not included (7, 50eur Park o 14eur indoors) NO DINNER or lunch. You will be able to get local pastries or snacks in Sintra along the way (also not included)

Pedro was our tour guide to Sintra and he was spectacular. We got very lucky going on a day with very few tourists, and he took us all over the Sintra gardens and the Pena palace, followed by the westernmost point in continental Europe and some other beautiful locations. He knew so much and shared so much of his local knowledge with us and let us personalize our trip. Pedro was so warm and made us feel very welcome. He even went above and beyond to help us take great photos. Truly a great experience, I’d recommend this tour to anyone who wanted to see Sintra. Just make sure you bring good walking shoes!

Great host, nice structure to the trip, and covered what we were looking for. We visited cascais in the first half of the day already.

Due to road closure we were unable to go to Penna Palace so after discussion with Alex we all decided to go to Sintra town to explore, then to Quinta da Regaleira instead and to finish our trip at the beach. It was a perfect suggestion by Alex! And we are so happy we got to experience all of this, we definitely would not of been able to recreate this experience on our own. Alex is really friendly and funny, he knows the area super well and has lots of stories to share. He took us around Sintra to the viewing points and treated us to some pastries only made in Sintra, we also got to sample some cherry liquor. We are so happy we went to Quinta da Regaleira it is beautiful and such fun to explore. Finally our last stop at a beach near Caiscais with an incredible view of the ocean and mountains was the perfect way to end our trip. We had a wonderful day ~ thank you so much Alex ~ Emmaline & Betsi x

A wonderful way to experience Sintra - Fernando was an excellent guide. He was knowledgeable and great fun. It felt like enough time to explore the castle and explore a little of what Sintra has to offer.

I had communication with Alex to book the reservation . He was quick to respond and very accommodating. Our tour guide was Miguel Pinta, and he was amazing and extremely knowledgeable . He added extra details throughout the tour which made the tour extra special and fun. He made sure no question went unanswered and everyone had every picture and detail you could want. Our new found love of Lisboa is most definitely from all the wealth and knowledge we gained from Miguel. I strongly suggest you take a tour with this fabulous group. You won’t regret it. We look forward to our next trip!! Best, Ken and Bill
