Full description

We’ll first head towards the picturesque Sintra adorned with exquisite palaces, mansions and romanticism. Sintra is a World Heritage Site that is a treasure for its natural attractions, monuments and unexplainable magic. You’ll see the most important landmarks in a blessing experience by Beetle while the landscape will change from mountain, to wild and rugged beaches, and city life.

Sintra’s gastronomy is varied and rich and will make this experience unforgettable. If we talk about sweets we must inevitably highlight the “Queijadas de Sintra”’ (Sintra tartlets), an ancient sweet which dates back to the Middle Ages. But there are others that should be tasted: ”Travesseiros” or ”Fofos de Belas” in addition to jam produced according to traditional preparation methods. Don’t worry, you’ll be able to taste some of these.

See the westernmost point in Europe (Cabo da Roca) and taste the flavors of Sintra before heading down the coast to Cascais, the village with the best hot dog trailer and the best views in the city. Following the coastline, you’ll watch as the ocean becomes a river, you’ll taste the special flavors of Belém, and we’ll finish off the tour with a traditional bifana (a yummy pork sandwich).



The selection of the tasting experiences will depend on the availability of the places and the profile of each client. This is just a general sample of some of the food & drink experiences that can be included in the tour.

  • Travesseiros: With the shape of a pillow (“travesseiro” in Portuguese), the dough-based pastry with egg cream and almond has a secret ingredient that makes it appealing to the mouths of the whole world.
  • Custard Tarts: Lisbon’s ex-libris whose original recipe comes from the Jerónimos Monastery located in Belém area.
  • Codfish Cakes (Bolinhos de Bacalhau): A symbol of the traditional Portuguese gastronomy that uses one of its most famous ingredients.
  • “Bifana”: The greatest pork steak sandwiches.
  • Portuguese Green Wine: Unique Portuguese wine that originated in the historic Minho province in the far north of the country.
  • Tinned Fish Degustation: One of the greatest Portuguese gastronomic tradition (sardines, mackerel or tuna).

Sintra by VW Beetle from Lisbon
An excellent way to get to know Sintra! The VW blue beetle truly took me back a few years to my granddad's red beetle The sights were amazing and we had lots of fun tasting the traditional liquors.

Ich habe diese Firma durch meinen Blog gefunden, den ich gelesen habe, und ich bin so froh, dass ich das getan habe! Wir arrangierten, dass Björn uns in unserem Hotel in Cascais abholt und mit uns die Gegend erkundet und Zeit in Sintra verbringt. Er war sehr informativ und aufmerksam. Er nahm uns mit auf eine fantastische Tour an der Küste und zu einem wunderschönen traditionellen portugiesischen Mittagessen in Sintra. Ein wundervoller Tag!
