As this is a private tour, you will have the freedom to rearrange your tour how you see fit. Below is the standard itinerary:

After your pick up at 8.30 or 13:30, we will proceed directly to Mafra, where we will arrive after a 45mn drive. Our first stop will be at the center of Mafra, where we can visit the Palace and Basilica (approximately 1.30h for the whole visit). After that we will proceed to the Tapada, a park on the back of the palace that served as hunting grounds for the King and Royal family, where you can freely visit and see all the animals that live there in the wild or, if available or scheduled, you can see a show of Falconry, an art developed by the Portuguese which is considered Immaterial World Heritage by the Unesco. All of these schedules depend on the time of the year (less frequent on winter) and will be presented by your driver at the start of the day.

After the visit to the tapada, we will return to Lisbon. Optionally you can book 2 hours more for lunch (only available in the Morning departures), allowing also more time for a short drive by through Sintra and/or return to Lisbon by the coastline, a route always preferred due to it's scenic beauty, of which is considered to be our little Côte d'Azur.
