In the morning you will be picked up at the hotel/accommodation, from where you will be travelling in a minivan to the first stop of the day: Sintra. This beautiful town lies at the foot of the mountain range of the same name. It won't come as a surprise that the region has been recognised by UNESCO as a World Heritage Site.

The guide will be happy to give you tips for good restaurants, cafes and local specialty shops.

During the whole day you'll be accompanied by an experienced local English speaking guide and driver. The guide will share interesting stories and fun facts at the many stops.

The modern minivan is comfortable and will easily transport you to the different locations.

In the afternoon you will stop at one of the most symbolic places in Portugal: Cabo da Roca. The route to Cabo da Roca alone is fantastic and offers beautiful views of the rugged coast and beautiful nature. Be sure to bring your camera with you, because the panorama at Cabo da Roca is phenomenal. This is a place that you will never forget.

After leaving Cabo da Roca you will stop at the famous surf beach Guincho. The last stop is in the seaside resort of Cascais, where the Portuguese royal family used to spend their summer holidays. This picturesque town has a lot to offer and there are plenty of nice local shops to try and buy some local specialties. After the visit to Cascais, you will leave for Lisbon, but not without taking in the beautiful view of the village of Estoril, famous for its stories about spies in the Second World War.

Our guide was exceptional in his knowledge of Sintra, Cabo da Roca and Cascais. And we enjoyed spending the day talking with him about life in Portugal and the US. We highly recommend Daniel Serra as a guide and driver for you.

The day trip was very relaxed. The rides in the minivan to the different places were very comfortable, the guide told a lot of background information. We had plenty of free time to have lunch, walk around and get a breath of fresh air on the beach of Cascais. The spots themselves were really nice to see, the view was really beautiful and perfect for taking pictures. All in all, highly recommended!
De dagtrip was heel relaxed. De ritjes in de minivan naar de verschillende plekken was heel comfortabel, de gids vertelde veel achtergrondinformatie. We kregen genoeg vrije tijd om te lunchen, rond te lopen, uit te waaien op het strand van Cascais. De plekjes zelf waren echt heel mooi om te zien, het uitzicht was echt prachtig en perfect om foto's te maken. Al met al, een echte aanrader!
