Það sem verður gert

Sintra is an enchanted place. Not even the most romantic poet could fully describe its beauty. A fascinating conjugation of episodes, some natural and other historical, that produced a remarkable result. From a king who was more interested in gardening than in politics, to an extravagant Brazilian merchant who decided to build a spiral well in the garden of his palace that falls into darkness.

We will walk through these stories while exploring the viewpoints and hidden places that allow us to know the various faces of Sintra. In the morning I will challenge you to explore the mysterious Quinta da Regaleira so that you can spiral down into darkness. After lunch we will stop at the colorful and emblematic Palacio da Pena which offers an incredible view from the top of the mountain.

We will also visit the westernmost point of the European continent and drive through the magical mountain forest on the way to Pena Palace. The perfect finale will be the ride through the coastline that will lead us to the pretty village of Cascais.

NOTE:

Me (Frederico) and Vasco, we both grew up in Sintra and have lived here ever since. But it was after becoming tour guides of this amazing region that we got to know the profound and remarkable history of this unique place of Portugal.

After I graduated, Vasco invited me to work in tourism. After a while life took us to different paths and in 2016 I decided to create my own project in tourism (the_host_experiences) and i realized it was time to bring Vasco back to this fascinating activity because we both share the same vision that traveling has a transformative power and fills us with enthusiasm to know that through our dedication we can create transformational moments for people who decide to spend part of their vacation time with us.

I booked it for my mom and it was excellent, this is her review in Spanish: Hoy he visitado Sintra por primera vez. No podía imaginar que mi visita guiada por Federico sería tan estupenda. Me he empapado de su historia de forma amena y he pasado un día muy feliz. Además tuvo el detalle de poner música que me gusta😁, gracias Federico

Frederico was an outstanding guide. He had that rare combination of making you feel special plus being a totally professional guide. We were a mixed group of ages and Frederico was able to relate to us all. He was engaging and charming and we would highly recommend him to anyone who wants to learn about Sintra and it’s surrounds in the company of a superb guide.

What an experience, what a beautiful souvenir of Portugal and Sintra region ! Frederico is very attentive, a true enthusiastic person, passionate by the story of Portugal. Who better than a native of Sintra region to make us discover it ? With funny and memorable anecdotes. About the tour: an optimal experience, totally relevant with the description. Comfortable and very pleasant, you can not visit and see more during one day. Thanks to Frederico for the extra stop at Boca do Inferno at Cascais. A huge thank you to this great guide that I can only advise you. "Premia todos os serviços, incentiva todos os talentos". Luís Vaz de Camões

If you are still have any doubts about booking a tour with Frederico, please stop hesitating, you won't regret it. - First of all, he was very flexible with the itinerary, giving us the freedom to customize our trip while providing us the best advice to fully enjoy our day. Indeed, having only one day in Sintra, it was the ONLY tour we found that offers all these amazing sightseeing stops, with the possibility of getting in two of them. - Then, he was knowledgeable in the way that he gave us historical highlights in all the places we visited from the general features to the anecdotal information. - Finally, he was fascinated and fascinating. Although he may have visited the monuments hundreds of times, he is still passionate by the Portugal and Sintra histories. For these reasons, he became within a few hours, along several palaces and over centuries of history, the best tour guide ever, and a good friend. To conclude, thanks to Frederico this magical tour seems like a parenthesis out of time.

Let me summarise my experience in Sintra with Frederico with 3 simple words : BEST. TOUR. EVER.! Frederico is incredible, he masters Portugals' history (and gives lots of anecdotes about Sintra in particular). He is extremely welcoming and makes literally everything to provide you with the best experience you would ever dare to think of. Gradually from the beginning to the end of the tour Frederico turned from our Airbnb guide to a great friend, and we discovered a lot of areas in common during the trip. If you are hesitating between several tours, just stop and choose Frederico immediately you won't regret it ! Thank you again, Warren, Diane and myself are looking forward to hearing from you soon :)

Fantastic tour! Frederico and Vasco truly personalized this tour for us and made sure we enjoyed every minute. When we didn’t make it in time to one of the palaces they immediately offered to take us another day. They were incredibly kind and our students loved it!
