Come and visit the home of Kings and Queens, scientists and secret organisations and get lost in their story with us. After a short 40-minute train ride from our meeting point in central Lisbon, Rossio square, you’ll get to the’glorious Garden of Eden’, as would say Lord Byron. It is our aim during this half-day tour to show you why it deserves this name.

We will guide you through the winding streets of the town, sampling golden pastries and enjoying breathtaking views along the way, and learning about Sintra’s history of glowing goddesses of the moon, ancient dinosaurs and rich courtesans.

Once we are in the heart of the town, we will head to the main attraction- the fantastic and mythical Quinta da Regaleira, famous not just for its gorgeous manor house but for the labyrinth-like gardens weaved around it. You will descend into the open maw of the initiation well and navigate the powerful stone tunnels beneath, climb towers worthy of princesses and explore grottoes of Greek mythology.

You will leave our tour laden with knowledge of the freemasons and templar knights of Portugal, brimming with the peace you found and, most importantly, bestowed with the magic Sintra. After the tour ends you are free to spend the afternoon however you choose, but we guarantee you will want to stay and explore Sintra and its other palaces some more!

Sintra tour

★★★★★ Reviewed by Maria on 2019-06-27
Sintra tour was an amazing experience for me. The tour quide was Silvio and he was great guide providing us with all important history facts very well. The train ticket was included in the tour as well, so you can also use this ticket for the trip back to Lisabon even later if you decide to stay in Sintra and visit Pena Palace or go to Capo de Roca. The focus of this tour was on the Quinta de Regaleira and it's really beautiful, guide explained us meaning of many different symbols there which made this tour even better. The Quinta de Regaleira is like a lavirint, so it makes a difference having the guide. I was enjoying the tour and I could not recommend it enough!

Sintra is a must of you go to Lisbon

This was a great four hour tour of Sintra, which is an amazing town about 40 minutes from Lisbon by train. The guide was great at explaining what we were seeing and it's history, especially the Masonic symbolism in Quinta da Regaleira which the tour focused on. The tour is four hours but I stayed in Sintra afterwards to see the Pena palace and Park which this not part of the tour due to time constraints. The tour included the ticket back which I could use myself. The interior of the Palace wasn't worth the extra 6.5 Euros but the Palace Park was awesome and worth visiting.

Excellent Walking Tour of Sintra

Excellent walking tour of Sintra. Nunu (sp?) was a great guide, very well informed, and friendly. The tour included access to the gardens and palace of Quinta de Regaleira. I highly recommend this tour! I wish I had come across Discover Lisbon's tours prior to this trip.

Hice el tour con Diana. Una genia! Muy conocedora y bien predispuesta. Probamos una torta típica y un licor. La guía sabe mucho y se ofreció a sacarnos unas buenas fotos. Lo recomiendo!
