It was during the 20th century that the sea attracted outsiders in search of the excellent sheltered beaches with prime conditions for water sports, making this peaceful place a busy summer resort.
The excellent local cuisine, specializing in shellfish and fresh fish, deserves a special mention and this can be tasted in the numerous local restaurants.
Wine is one of the most valued products in Portugal. Weather conditions associated with the quality of the soil allow the production of wines of high-quality award-winning worldwide.
In the surrounding area, the Sanctuary of Nossa Senhora do Cabo Espichel is worth a visit and on the cliff next to it one can see dinosaur footprints.
All our tours can be customized to best suit your travel ideas and itinerary.
Get picked up from your accommodation and start your private tour toward Vila Nogueira de Azeitão to visit José Maria da Fonseca winery (producer of Periquita wines) producing wine since 1878.
Here you will have the opportunity to tour ancient wine cellars, check where the oldest Setúbal Moscatels (Muscat wine) rest and hold a wine tasting at the end of the visit. You can also choose the iconic gardens and vineyards from Quinta da Bacalhôa as well.
Then you can relax on the short drive to Setúbal (major port and a connection point with Tróia) for a tour and lunch where many Lisbon locals go for fresh fish or the traditional local delicacy – fried cuttlefish.
We can recommend a restaurant within your requirements so you can delight yourself with typical Portuguese food.
After lunch, continuing your full-day private tour, you’ll be able to marvel at the Serra da Arrábida Natural Park and its charms. You will enjoy a magnificent view over the mountain range and the sea with Cape Espichel in the back.
We will continue our tour towards Palmela where you can visit the Medieval Castle and admire its viewpoint.
The return to Lisbon will be via the iconic Ponte 25 de Abril (25th of April Bridge), one of the main landmarks of Lisbon and a close relative of the San Francisco Golden Gate Bridge.
Your driver will drop you off at your accommodation and this will complete your Sesimbra and Arrábida full-day private tour.
We are proudly committed to the idea of not being strict to timings or specific plans and instead be flexible so that you can fully enjoy the day during your private tour.
