What you'll do

Hey!

We will go to Sintra in our van for an amazing day, having a conversation about its most famous Stories!

I will give you a booklet with our stories and illustrations, and a map to keep you oriented through the whole trip!

First we will go to the Village center to see the National Palace and talk about our King D. Manuel I, then we will try the famous sweets from Sintra, the "Queijada" and the "travesseiro".

After we will go to the amazing Palace of Regaleira, where we will visit its amazing gardens full of caves, waterfalls and secret tunnels that hide all the meanings of free masonry and speak about its creator, António Monteiro.

Then we will head to the amazing forest of Sintra (where we can have a small picnic) and we will stop on a view point to see the beautiful palace of Pena, the icon of the Romantic age in Portugal and Europe.

We will then head to "Cabo da Roca", the western most point of Europe, and feel the Ocean and its amazing cliffs!

In the end we will come back to Lisbon by the Portuguese "Riviera" checking all the great beaches in our coast!

We will leave you back in the city center with all the Stories we shared!

( You will have free Wi fi :) )

Hey! I'm Dinis, I was born in Lisbon and I'm an artist/designer.

I like to have open and honest conversations, to know new stories and to share my own.

But that doesn't mean that I like to talk a lot, silence has its part on a good conversation.

I'm far from being an historian or a philosopher, but I really enjoy to learn and talk about how things were before, and try to connect and understand why/how things are today.

That's why I decided to share these Portuguese stories (including mine) with whom is travelling to Portugal and discovering our culture.

We had an amazing experience in Sintra thanks to our guide Mariana! We were visiting Lisbon just over the weekend and it was a great decision to book this tour. Mariana picked us in Lisbon and took us around Sintra to Cabo da Roca where I had wanted to visit for a long time. During the tour and driving, she was telling us a lot of informative stories which allowed us to understand the places very well. We are very happy that we could see many places around Sintra in one day and enjoyed the conversations with Mariana a lot! :) We definitely recommend this tour.

Tomas was our guide for this wonderful adventure. He was friendly, knowledgeable and clearly has a love for Sintra. The village of Sintra is magical and Tomas is a great storyteller, interweaving the stories of the people and history of the village. Sintra is not to missed and this tour made it even more enjoyable.

I wasn’t planning to see Sintra/Cascais at the beginning of my trip to Lisbon. However I was told by someone whilst in Lisbon that Sintra is a must-see. So, I booked Portuguese Stories the night before my tour. Tomas is an amazing tour guide. Throughout the tour, he made sure that everyone was comfortable and the most impressive part was his story-telling. He has a deep connection with Sintra and brought us to see Sintra in a non-conventional way. If you only have one day to spare for Sintra, I highly recommend this tour as a lot of places in Sintra get very busy with tourists and it saves a lot of time to have someone local to skip all the unnecessary queue or spots.

배경지식 없이 신트라를 방문했다면, 그냥 풍경에 감탄만 하고 왔을텐데 이해하기 쉬운 설명으로 더욱 재밌고 깊이있게 둘러본 것 같습니다! 추천해요
