    There are two four-day tours from Lisbon for you to consider: Lisbon, Sintra, Cascais, and Estoril Coast.

    This tour is great if you planned on taking guided tours while in Lisbon and a day trip to Sintra, Cascais, and Estoril. You could book your own accommodation and guided tours while in Lisbon and then book one of the day trips to Sintra from above if you wanted more independence, but you probably couldn't top the value of this tour, especially the convenience and time saved by letting the pros do it for you!

    Four nights of accommodation in Lisbon is included in the price.

Stops include Lagos, Sagres, Evora, Beja, and Setubal.
