What you'll do

(STARTING TIME IS COMPLETELY ADJUSTABLE)

Sintra is a land of enchantment.

From the forests covering the mountain range to the beaches and coasting villages carved in cliffs and during this vibrant experience you will discover every of its corners and unveil its secrets.

At 14.00 or 9.30 we will start this experience at Sintra´s train station.

Then, we will drive to the mountaintop where you will visit the Pena Palace, the dream made true of a Romantic King fallen in love with the mountain of the moon.

After the Palace, we will progress through the deep forest and mountain range where you will do sightseeing of Regaleira (inverted tower), Seteais Palace, and Monserrate Palace as I explain their context and you feel their aura.
Cape Roca, the next stop, it's the westernmost point in the European Continent. From there we´ll do sightseeing through the coastline, sensing Azenhas do Mar and Praia da Aguda.
Eventually, let the rural landscape of Sintra and mountain range surround us.

We will end the tour in the Historical Center, and you will be able to walk in the medieval streets and taste some delicious traditional pastries in Piriquita (and more!)

You will experience Sintra authentically, avoid traffic and masses and see immersive places which only locals now about.

I can cut the line to buy the ticket. I do not go inside the monument. Ticket is not included.

I am Vítor and I was born and raised in Sintra.

Since I was a little kid I had a powerful passion for History, Literature, and Nature.

I even hold a degree in Tourism Management (anyway!).

These passions and my endless curiosity and enthusiasm led me to read about the monuments and explore the secret spots of my breathtaking hometown

It will be a pleasure to share my stories and memories while leading you through a vibrating experience that you will enjoy to the fullest.

This experience can be performed by me or my brother Miguel.

The trip was amazing! Miguel (who will filling in for his brother) was the best. Knowledgeable and with a true love of his job and of Sintra. They secured a car seat for our child and the van he took us in was new and clean and safe. I recommend without reservation.

Miguel was very thoughtful in his interactions with us throughout our tour. It was really nice to get the perspective of Sintra through the eyes of a local. Wish we had a full day we could have spent with him.

Such a great experience! Vitor and his colleague were highly knowledgeable and showed us a side of Sintra that we would not have been able to see on our own or with a less trained eye. We were able to see the main Sintra attractions as well as the coast (which is gorgeous) and learn about the local history and culture on the way. Our group did the 4hr tour, but I would recommend Vitor’s longer tour if you have time—there is so much to see, do and learn. Very grateful to you, Vitor and Paul!

We had a wonderful tour. Due to travel issues, we needed to reschedule our tour. Vitor was very responsive and eager to help. Although he wasn’t available, his brother (also a tour guide) Miguel, stepped in. We loved spending the day with him and hearing his stories. He shared inside stories and provided great recommendations. His love of this beautiful country was infectious.

The tour was amazing. The guide is kind and his storytelling was great. Some of the locations he brought me were somewhere I cannot go by bus. It was really full of quality time. *Recommended*

My Mum and I had a fabulous day. Viator was kind and considerate, especially as my Mum needed extra time. Viator was full of historical knowledge which we loved learning, he also told us of local life. The way he designed the tour was fabulous, starting with the Palace and then taking us through the wonders of the forest, out to the villages and the sea. It is so worth doing, I highly recommend it.
