Tour description provided by Viator

This private tour takes us north along the amazing landscapes of the west coast of Portugal until we arrive at Óbidos. Walking tour with your guide and free time in the village.  Free Cherry Liqueur tasting. "Off the beaten path": we will stop at the odd rock formations at Cabo Carvoeiro, Peniche. Another unique place is the village of Baleal, a peninsula that stretches into the Atlantic. We will stop there for you to explore the place. A fusion of land and ocean. Nature in pure state. Mafra National Palace is one of the largest buildings in Europe. Visit to the church. The words "massive," "monumental," "gigantic," "colossal," and "vast" fail to describe the scale of Mafra's Baroque royal palace. Short lunch break for you to taste  the old traditional convent sweets.
Departure from Lisbon along the province of Estremadura to Óbidos, known as "Village of Queens". Once the wedding present of a queen, the preserved medieval town of Óbidos north of Lisbon is without doubt one of Portugal's most classic walled settlements.

Some free time. Nearby is located the magnificent coastal scenery of Peniche. Peniche is also a small walled fishing town where the fishing industry is a very important activity. Peniche was an island until the sixteenth century, when silt created a narrow isthmus and is nowadays becoming popular as a surfer’s paradise.Strange rock formations at the "Cabo Carvoeiro" can be admired. This is a Geologic Paradise in Portugal. Short photo stop. If we have clear weather you will see the fabulous Islands of Berlengas. Along the way we enjoy this magnificent coastal scenery until we arrive at the fishing village of Baleal, a fusion between land and sea. Stop for you to discover it.The last part of our tour takes us north through the magnificent landscape of the west coast until we reach Mafra.
