What you'll do

This is the typical tour that for a long time the families living in Lisbon used to make in their weekends. I used to make it also since I was a boy. Now as a guide, I'm making it since 5 years ago with my guests in the same way, mixing a relaxed exploring of the nature with historic tales, fairy architecture and food. We take the way by the Tagus coast along the beaches until Cascais, an old village and former summer residence of the King. From Cascais to Sintra we'll go along the Guincho scenic coast. If the weather permits, we'll cross the nature through the hill lavish vegetation. In the heights we'll visit a peak with stunning views over the ocean. Here we'll find a legendary shrine upon huge rocks whose story we'll learn. Roca Cape, the westernmost point of Europe mainland is in sight from this peak. Crossing the hills we'll spot closely the Castle and the Pena Palace. At lunch a tasty specialty will be suggested - roasted chicken, homemade french fries and tomato salad seasoned with oregano. In the afternoon we'll visit Sintra walking up in its alleyways, admiring the palaces and the charming green landscape. In a local pastry we'll taste the Sintra's typical cake "Queijada".

Henrique

My name is Henrique, I am a guide educated in History and I founded five years ago a small family company of experiences and tours to discover the historical, natural and cultural heritage of Portugal. I study and prepare my experiences in order to surprise my guests with visits to places of rare beauty, profound historical significance or genuine flavors. I like to welcome my clients as travelers and friends and I do not treat them as tourists. I take them to privileged places where Nature combines with History and the landscape with the gastronomy.
