What you can expect

Hi there! This is, as the name suggests, a time to explore Sintra and it’s mostly unknown or unexplored areas!

This consists of one experience with the option of taking one of two pedestrian routes:

- PRAIA DA URSA - is one of the most beautiful beaches in Portugal. Its name originates from a huge rock standing out of the water, that looked at a certain angle it looks like a bear! If you choose to do explore the beach, please be aware that this is a wild, natural beach and the trail is very steep - it's advised to wear hiking boots or sturdy shoes.

- SINTRA’S PEDESTRIAN ROUTE - which has just now open to the public, hiking from Sintra old town up to the Palácio da Pena and Castelo dos Mouros, or if you prefer… This is an off the beaten track route which will take you walking around the narrow alleyways of Sintra, with its flowery windows and arches and embracing the beautiful natural, golden light of the day!

Sometimes Sintra is a place of mystery, it has many days of mist and moist falling on you from the trees and it takes an entirely different atmosphere!!

For an extra fee, you can complement either one of this routes with a light lunch just before taking out to the walk or if you prefer, after an invigorating walk, you can decide to have a delicious dinner in a cosy​, warm, friendly environment… almost romantic!!

It will be a pleasure to welcome you to my beautiful village of Sintra!! I'm flexible to tailor our route, let me know what your interests and we'll make things happen together.

NOTE: The price includes insurance and is required that at the time of the booking you provided me with your full names and birth dates!
If I don't receive the details requested until noon (12:00) the day before the booking, I cannot activate the insurance and will, therefore,​ cancel the booking.

This is the plan

Hello everyone!
My name is Sofia, from Sintra By Sofia, and I am a Portuguese girl who has been working onboard cruise ships and private yachts for the last 11 years and it was here that I have developed my thirst for knowledge - knowledge to know and meet people from all walks of life, to learn about their cultures, about their history and traditional costumes and very specially, their food!! I have travelled all over the world and have eaten in fancy restaurants and have eaten on the side of the road on a small stool with the plate on my lap some of the most delicious food I have ever tasted - and my great passion is Asia, after Portuguese food!! I love to welcome people to my country and to Sintra, which has a very special place in my heart and to be the host like so many other people were to me during my travels… Let me show you to my beautiful country and the lovely food we are known for!!"
