This is a lovely way to get to the coast and see the countryside. Old tram very quaint. You must but a ticket from the office at Sintra you can not buy a ticket on the Tram. However you need to buy a return ticket when at the destination, this you buy on the tram so you can not book the return time, be wary if tram is full get there early if looking busy otherwise you will not travel.We took the trip all the way to the coast, spent some time wandering the some lunch plenty of restaurants. Nice way to spend half a day. Another tip, just before you reach the Sintra tram stop there is an old fruit/veg market well worth a look. Not at all tourist in this part of town, refreshing to see this.
