A monumental and special day
This is one of my favourite tours, as we can go in the countryside.
We will start the day heading to Alcobaça, home to to of the biggest Cistercian communities in Portugal until the 19th century and UNESCO site since 1983. After visiting this beautiful monastery, where the tombs of the most known portuguese lovebirds still are, we will head to Nazaré, an old fishermen's village that became very frequented by the inhabitants of the region that come for its beach.
Our day cannot end without passing by Óbidos, a medieval village surrounded by walls and where the local speciality is the sour cherry liquor in a cup of chocolate!
If you prefer, we can also replace one of the mentioned places by a visit to the Monastery of Batalha. For a customized tour, please message me.

Ines provide my group of 18 people with 2 outstanding tours. Both this excursion to Sintra and Cascais as well as our prior day trip to the Monastery, Nazaré and Óbidos far exceeded our expectations. Her knowledge, her patience, her clear and informative narrations, her enthusiasm and her engaging personality made these excursions the absolute highlights of our 2 1/2 week adventure. We would recommend her highly to anyone planning to visit Lisboa.
