    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 a mysterious garden and palace, surrounded by metaphor and myth, that many think is even more spectacular than its more famous red-and-yellow cousin. We’re talking about Quinta da Regaleira. Plus with us you’ll get to ride along secret forest paths in our vintage convertible 4x4s and enjoy our sparkling local knowledge (and painfully beautiful faces) as part of the package.
    With our jeep we’ll drive by historic palaces (Sintra National Palace, Seteais Palace, Monserrate, Pena Palace) and the 8th-century Moorish Castle, sharing the best legends and facts about each monument before stepping inside the magical Quinta da Regaleira. Afterward, you’ll have worked up an appetite – and we couldn’t let you leave here without tasting Sintra’s own traditional sweet pastry, the “Travesseiro”, with a homemade “Ginjinha” liqueur.
    Our half-day journey finishes at 1.30 pm. We can drop you in town with restaurant suggestions or back to the train station. If you have the time, combine this with our sunset tapas hike to a secret beach.
