Experience the hidden places of this magical town


From Lisbon we'll drive towards amazing spots in Sintra, avoiding crowds and tasting the real Portugal. You'll delight your eyes with the white waves of Guincho and then off to Cabo da Roca, the most western point of mainland Europe.

After this, the hidden gem of Adraga: it could almost cross your mind that those cliffs were carved to fit perfectly that wild and rugged beach. Close by there is Azenhas do Mar, a picturesque village by the sea with a beautiful pool dug in the cliff, and Colares, a charming little town, famous for being the smallest demarcated wine region in Portugal.

We'll continue through a marvelous road to Sintra and stop at its historical centre to discover a fascinating small town at the foot of the mountain, which unique characteristics have led UNESCO to classify it as world heritage in 1995. Here we'll meet a few more people but it will be worth, no doubt, it just looks purely and unexpectedly lost in time. Time for some local pastries and unique flavours.

Return to Lisbon.

A Recent Review of this tour

Another not-to-miss visit. We were able to see some tremendous waves in Nazare (do watch the 100-foot wave documentary or read about it so you can really appreciate what's there, whether you are a surfer or now). Obidos was a unique town! As usual, Marta was a fantastic guide!
