What you'll do

Hi everyone!!
We are António !

The idea of this experience is to provide the best possible full day in our hometown. Knowing Sintra like the back of our hands and all the magic it has to offer we came up with what we believe to be the most amazing and complete way of experiencing its wonders in one full day!

- We will start the day at your Hotel/AirBnb and drive for about 30 min until we arrive in Sintra

- Our first stop will be at the historic center of Sintra to discover its beautiful labyrinth like streets. We will talk about what makes Sintra so special while discovering its secrets and taste its unique pastry.

- We will then discover the Palace of Quinta da Regaleira and get lost in its 4 hectares of mysticism and romantic arquitecture and gardens.

- From here we will go through the very picturesque and hidden towns of Colares and Penedo to reach the beautifull views over the coastline and the village of Azenhas do Mar.

- On the coastline we will discover the hidden gems of this stretch of coast, far from the crowds, before arriving in Cabo da Roca for a view of the westernmost point of continental Europe.

-We will then have the best postcard like views of the Pena Palace and finish the tour with a visit to this unique romantic Palace.

I grew up in Sintra and decided to come up with what I consider the perfect full day itinerary to visit Sintra, combining my guiding experience with deep local knowledge.


The whole idea behind what we consider the perfect itinerary of Sintra is to show our guests the different amazing faces of this beautifull part of Portugal - The historic center and monuments area, the quaint little villages of the coastline and the natural wonders of both the coastline and forest of Sintra.

To do this I've come up with an itinerary that includes both the most popular spots and the hidden gems and corners just for ourselves.

As guides we are able to skip the monuments line

Where you'll be

We will visit the best views of the Pena Palace. A spot in the forest where we can appreciate the Pena Palace, Moorish Castle and the National Palace at the same time. We will get lost in the 4 hectares of Quinta da Regaleira.

On the coast line we will taste amazing seafood at Praia Grande, discover secret spots on the cliffs and fisherman's villages like Azenhas do mar.

Highly highly recommend! I would give 10 stars if there is an option. I usually skip reviews but I think Antonio's trip deserves to be known by more people for anyone wants to know Sintra or even Portugal better. There are so many more details that you could only enjoy when you are on the trip with Antonio but we want to share some highlights: Great pace and thoughtful arrangement that we didn't feel rushing to places but got to see almost all beautiful points at the end of the day. Please read his trip description carefully as there are hidden locations included that you wouldn't find with other trips. Azenhas do Mar was one of them. Extensive knowledge about Sintra, Portugal and plants. The conversation with Antonio during the trip on history, culture, plants and his stories in Sintra is definitely the highlight and a big plus for all of us. Pick up and drop off in Lisbon. We stayed in Lisbon during the trip and it makes it more convenient to have this service. A different perspective and new possibility in life. We came back feeling refreshed as Antonio's stories and passion in life gave us a different perspective for life. This is much needed in the end of 2020. Extra Plus!!! Antonio is also a surf instructor. We already booked a surfing lesson in advance for this trip but we are planning to join Antonio's lessons when we return to Portugal next time. Words are not enough to describe the experience, but if you are planning a trip to Portugal or Sintra, this experience with Antonio should definitely be on your list.
Highly highly recommend! I would give 10 stars if there is an option. I usually skip reviews but I think Antonio's trip deserves to be known by more people for anyone wants to know…

Une journée exceptionnelle passée en présence de Miguel, qui nous a fait partager l'histoire du Portugal et aussi son histoire à lui. Journée très riche et captivante. Nous avons aussi pu passer un peu de temps juste entre nous. Bref, le prix peut faire reculer, mais cela vaut le coup. Nous n'aurons pas pu faire tout ce que l'on a fait juste par nous même et nous n'aurions pas appris un dixième de ce que Miguel nous a expliqué. Merci !

Super formule qui permet de varier les visites de sites fabuleux entre le palais royal, Quintera de regaleira, palacio de Pena, et de faire un tour sur la côte et prendre l'air au cabo de roca. Nous n'aurions pas pu faire tout ce programme en une journée par les transports en commun. Et surtout un grand merci à Miguel qui nous a conté son "pays".

Joao was really cool and nice all throughout the day. He took us to amazing places and shared some historical and personal stories. He was flexible when our lunch took 2 hours instead of the originally planned 30 minutes. We had a great time.

We really enjoyed our experience, and felt that there were many personal stories provided that made this unique! Loved hearing about Sintra before and after it became a tourist destination, and also really loved the unique insights our guide gave us to the gardens, etc.

Very passionate, very interesting, and highly recommended. Miguel showed up exactly on time as he promised. On the way to Sintra, he explained to us what he wanted to show us and what to expect. Whether it was the cuisine, a historical monument or nature, Miguel told us about the story and history of Portugal and Sintra and his culinary recommendations were extraordinary. Sintra itself is amazing with its unique climate zone and palaces. Overall very local experience. Really glad we did this tour with Miguel.
