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: If you want to do this same experience with a convertible car please search for my other Airbnb experience and book it there, it's called: «The Beauty of Details - Convertible Car»
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.
