Private Lisbon and Sintra Sightseeing Tour by a Classic Convertible Beetle

Select Date and Travellers
2 travellers
    What to Expect
    Begin your private Lisbon tour with a pickup at your hotel. Then, meet your guide, pop into your retro VW Beetle convertible and begin with a drive to the top landmarks in Lisbon. Wind through the streets of Alfama and see Castelo de São Jorge that commands its hillside. From there, discover the famous historic square Praça do Comércio in Baixa.

    Continue to amble through the neighborhoods of Belém, Bairro Alto, and Chiado and learn about the areas that were rebuilt after the devastating Lisbon earthquake of 1755. Marvel at architecture with a variety of styles shaped by the shakes of Lisbon’s tremulous past.

    Upgrade to a full-day tour: Select the full-day option and enjoy an adventure that not only adds more places to visit in Lisbon, but includes a trip to the fairytale-like town of Sintra. Following your AM exploration of Lisbon, traverse along the Tagus River until you reach the Estoril Coast. Gaze at stunning views until you arrive at the cape which forms the westernmost extent of continental Europe, Cabo da Roca. Snap a few photos here and then head nearby for lunch at a local Portuguese place (own expense). If you would like, sample delightful cheese, chorizo, and pastries. Perhaps, top it off with a glass of flavorful regional wine.

    With a full belly, travel on to the region of Sintra and observe the beautiful combination of nature and architectural expression. See how the Arabesque Monserrate Estate and the well-maintained Sintra National Palace elegantly coexist within the lush hillsides. With your guide, thoroughly explore the castles and marvelous buildings which make up the UNESCO-listed town of Sintra. Finally, return to Lisbon as the blue sky wanes overhead. 

    Get a well rounded day experiencing Portugal, indulge in Ginja liquor tastings and try Lisbon’s famous pastries.

    The trip overall was very good. Crowds at Sintra were ridiculous, without my handicap and getting fast tracked, it would have taken over 4 hours in line. the guide was know- ledgeable and friendly. Stop at western point a little hokey, the gruppa was good.
