Enjoy your ride as your guide imparts his knowledge of the history and the land surrounding Lisbon as you make your way to Sintra. Sintra is a mix of natural and manmade beauty: fantasy castles set amid exotic tropical plants, lush green valleys, and craggy hilltops with hazy views of Lisbon and the Atlantic. It was the summer escape of the royalty and, as it is only 11 miles northwest of Lisbon, it was an easy trip for Lisbon's kings. Lord Byron called this spot a "glorious Eden."

Depending on which day you visit, you will see either the romantic Pena National Palace or the Sintra National Palace. The magical hilltop Pena Palace sits high above Sintra and was built in the 19th century by Prince Ferdinand. The Sintra Palace dates back to Moorish times, but most of what you see is from the 15th century. It is the oldest surviving palace in Portugal and is still used for official receptions. You may also visit the Palácio de Queluz, which is a monument.

Your journey continues to Cascais. Once just a small fishing village, this town managed to maintain its seafaring traditions while melding with the aristocratic and royal presences of the late 19th and early 20th century. Passing through its animated town center, you’ll find the cosmopolitan life side-by-side with the Atlantic. From this area you'll also have a great view of the Estoril Casino and its gardens. Your guide will take you on a sightseeing tour along the coastal road of Estoril, one of the most beautiful and charming itineraries of all the Lisbon surroundings.

You have some flexibility with this day, so you can choose to visit a couple of other stops of your choice. Some suggestions are the Colares Wine-Cellar, the cellars of a precious wine in risk of extinction; or Quinta da Regaleira, built at the end of the 19th century, which is formed by a palace, a chapel, and gardens with grottos, wells, and subterranean areas. You may choose to spend some quality time on a terrace by the sea, in Cascais or in Guincho, watching the sunset. Another possibility is to spend the remaining time visiting the commercial area of Cascais. Your guide will help you determine which you would enjoy most.

In Cozumel we enjoyed the snorkeling that we did off a catamaran. The staff was friendly, very professional, and helpful with my first time snorkeling daughter. Grand Cayman we went to sting ray city with a trip and snorkeling. Staff and trip was amazing, crew very helpful and fun. in Jamaica we did a Dunn's River Falls excursion and private beach. We had fun but were not impressed with the staff, and their timeliness (waited around alot),

Traveling into Russia can be nerve-wracking (and getting more so every day) -- but ShoreTrips made it easy by providing all of the paperwork and instructions, as well as organizing good guides.
