    Hi! Im Chico and with my mates,all born and raised in Sintra, we will guide you on the most popular and best reviewed experience in town. Since we were little boys our mothers have complained about our wild streaks, bruised knees, small cuts and a broken arm or two are, after all, part of the fun. This naturally evolved into a fascination for vintage jeeps and everything that would let us explore Sintra as fun as possible. Amazed by this mystical place and the hidden secrets of the mountains that surround it, we decided to explore and learn about this region as much as we could in order to become one of the most knowledgeable experts in town. Our fascination for classic cars led us to completely restore a very special model: the UMM.

  • What you will see and do

    We love Sintra. Like, really LOVE it. But even we can admit It has one big problem. Once you start exploring this enchanting patch of the world, it’s almost impossible to stop, and we know a lot of you don’t have the time to spend days and days exploring every last forest track as we did as kids. Luckily, you still have time to see the star of the show, the so-called Disney palace that’s somehow even more breathtaking in real life than in photos: Pena Palace.
    Plus you’ll get to climb into the back of one of our sweet Portuguese-made ex-military 4WDs and we’ll bounce along century-old forest roads for an unforgettable half-day journey. We’ll drive by historic palaces (Sintra National Palace, Seteais Palace, Monserrate and Quinta da Regaleira) and the 8th-century Moorish Castle, sharing the best legends, stories and facts about each along the way. But best of all we’ll stop to stroll through the stunning Pena Palace together. Here we’ll snap photos with the famous red-and-yellow palace of your Instagram dreams.
    Sintra is a magical, mysterious place to embrace with your whole heart – and they say the fastest way to a man’s heart is through the stomach. So, we just can’t let you leave without tasting the town’s traditional sweet “travesseiro” pastry and homemade “ginja” liqueur.
    This half-day journey finishes at 1.30 pm. We can drop you in town with some lunch suggestions or back to the train station. If you have the time, combine this with our sunset tapas hike to a secret beach in the afternoon.
