Lisbon Cascais, Sintra and the beach Excursion Reviews

From the cruise port in Lisbon, you can venture out to Sintra to see the Sintra Natural Park and the city's historic palaces, the luxe former fishing village of Cascais and spend some time on the beach in this gorgeous region of Portugal.

The guide was fine but there was no time to go on tour in the rain to Cascais, Sintra, and the main cathedral in Lisbon( the tour listed the Jeronimos Monestery and it was open but we didn't go there). The last was the only worthwhile thing, but the monastery is much better. The other two were little more than scenic bathroom breaks on a bus tour with a lunch which began promisingly but had overcooked dry kabobs with French fries as its main entree. The cost was about $250 and not worth it. We had previously spent 4 nights in Lisbon years ago and thought it would be a light overview but this was not good. Read Less

Excellent tour, plenty to see and do.
Sail Date: September 2015
Excellent tour, plenty to see and do. Guides very passionate about their Country. Visited lots of places off the "beaten track", including the beautiful Quinta da Regaleira gardens in Sintra. Well worth a visit.

Never having been to Portugal, we wanted to see as much as possible. This tour took us to beautiful seaside locations outside Lisbon, including a trip to Cabo da Roca, the westernmost point of the European continent. Cabo da Roca sits about 300 meters above the rocky coast and winds that day were near-hurricane force. I found it close to dangerous to try to walk around but I had to take the pictures, didn't I? We then returned to Lisbon and visited the Belem Tower and Jeronimos Monastery. Again, we had a winner for a guide. Read Less

Excellent tour with a very informative guide. We saw a lot of places enjoyed hearing about them. Pena castle is not to be missed, and Cascais was a beautiful beach town.
