What you'll do

We'll show you places in Sintra where dreams came true. First we’ll pick you at Sintra railway station, by Jeep, and we’ll start our experience at Palácio da Pena. It was from there that King Manuel saw Vasco de Gama ships arriving. With this Portugal realized an old dream: to discover the maritime route to India. Later, D. Fernando II, also made his dream come true: to make the Pena Palace a unique and enchanted place where the Portuguese culture has a special place. Then we’ll go to Quinta da Regaleira. This was Carvalho Monteiro's dream : making this a place of Freemasonry initiation. It will take us to the center of the earth through the various and mysterious caves. There is also a well where, as legend says, we can reborn (could this be a dream?) Then we will have lunch next to the beach in one of the great local restaurants. Next, our journey will go through Azenhas do Mar, a small village built on a cliff, with a dream view. We’ll finish with wine tasting at Casal Santa Maria (the westernmost vineyard and winery in Europe). Here a Baron made his dream came true by starting producing wine at 96 years old. (6 hours experience)

Helena

We are António and Helena, a couple in love with Sintra, who once decided to share their love for this romantic village for its stories, nooks and landscapes and created a family business. Hi, I'm Helena! I was born in Lagos (Algarve), but I came to Sintra when I was 8 and adopted it as my hometown. Somewhere in my life, after lefting apart my financial career, I decided to go to other “shores” and I discoverd my passion for tourism and people. And so the story of our dream began. (Hello) And I am António. I was born in Sintra and joined the dream after a few years working abroad. It's really great to have a daily "excuse" to stroll around Sintra and show the most unknown places, the treasures that almost nobody knows. To this passion for Sintra, I also joined my other passion: the all-terrain vehicles. Come on and meet us!
