ShoreTrips says...

This tour will take you to the charming Estoril Coast, home to famous beaches and the pretty town of Estoril. About the town of Sintra and its natural surroundings, we can say that it is one of Portugal's ex-libris, classified by UNESCO as a World Heritage Site!

Enjoy your ride as your guide imparts his knowledge of the history and the land surrounding Lisbon as you make your way to Sintra. The lovely town Sintra is a mix of history and culture and natural and manmade beauty. Fantasy castles are set amid exotic tropical plants, lush green valleys, and craggy hilltops with hazy views of Lisbon and the Atlantic. Enjoy a walk through the Old City Center where you'll find yourself surrounded by old houses now converted into small quaint handicraft shops and traditional pastry shops.

Driving around the mountain you will pass by amazing palaces, chalets and aristocratic residences in the most incredible combination of architectural styles, colors, and shapes that you will find in Portugal.

On the return to Lisbon, your driver will take you on a panoramic drive along the coastal road of Estoril, one of the most beautiful and charming itineraries of all the Lisbon surroundings. This seaside road, known as the "Marginal Road", runs parallel to white sandy beaches and amazing 17th-century fortresses. You'll have a great view of the Estoril Casino and its amazing gardens.

On your way back, you will pass through Belém, a site that is home to several important historical monuments.

This tour is a great introduction to the history and culture of Portugal, accompanied by the dazzling scenery of the greens and blues from the mountain and the sea!
