Know More about this tour

Meet your guide in central Lisbon or enjoy pickup from your Lisbon hotel and relax on a comfortable, air-conditioned coach as you head to the Alfama district. With your guide, wander around the streets of this neighborhood, the oldest in Lisbon and the birthplace of Fado, Portugal's own musical genre. Stop at a local store to sample Portugal’s famous Port wine.

Get back on the coach and continue along the waterfront towards Commerce Square (Praça do Comércio) in the heart of Lisbon. Take in views of the Tagus River and Sé de Lisboa cathedral , one of Lisbon’s oldest churches.

When you arrive in Belém, see the Belém Tower and the Monument to the Discoveries, both of which commemorate Vasco da Gama's expedition to the Americas. Visit the 16th-century UNESCO World Heritage-listed Jerónimos Monastery, one of the greatest examples of Manueline art, located by the riverfront.

Next, browse through the amazing 17th-century luxury coaches built for the aristocracy at the Coach Museum. On Mondays, when the Jerónimos Monastery and Coach Museum are closed, you will instead visit the neoclassical Palácio Nacional da Ajuda (Ajuda Palace ) or the Casa-Museu Medeiros e Almeida, which showcases an exhaustive collection of artwork by the Portuguese artist António de Medeiros e Almeida.

Relax on the drive back to central Lisbon and admire the 25th of April Bridge -- Europe's longest suspension bridge -- over the River Tagus.

    • We were on a cruise ship so took a taxi to the assigned meeting spot very reasonable located on bus amongst many across in the park. Was basically a driving tour, saw many points of interest, stopped at a location to do some quick shopping, ended up with a bit of a walking tour through some narrow streets, very picturesque! Ended tour with a stop at a lovely souvenir shop with samples of wine. From there we could walk back to our ship. Easy and relaxing tour... would recommend.

    • The tour was good and we saw some interesting sights. Our tour guide was well informed. Her English was good, but not great.

    • The 4-hour tour was a very brief glimpse into what the city has to offer. It wasn't an English only tour so the guide spoke for but a minute on a particular topic then 5 minutes in various other languages. Our Uber drivers were much more communicative. At our first stop Coaches Museum the guide let people wander off without giving anybody a time to meet up again.

    • Very comfortable tour with a lot of places to visit and just enough time to see them up close. It was the afternoon tour with the pickup from the hotel. Enjoyed. Highly recommend.

    • This was a very uninspiring tour led by an old guide who clearly didn't like Americans-- not sure why-- but he was annoyed whenever the English speakers would ask questions. I don't remember his name but he had grey hair and was in his 60's I'm guessing. It was packed with 60 people and the guide explained everything in at least 4 different languages-- English, Portuguese and Spanish and French, so often we would have passed the sight by the time the English came around. We spend a lot of time at the Coach Museum, which is the largest collection of carriages in the world. I found it mildly interesting but it had nothing to do with what the tour was supposed to be-- an overview of the city. I asked a few questions and the guide was clearly annoyed because he needed to keep to a rigid schedule. I just kind of felt like cattle on this tour-- they picked us up from a nearby hotel but then left us for about an hour to process us onto other buses. The only good thing is that our group has some ladies on it staying at the Four Seasons, so even high society ladies chose the boring, affordable tour too. I would pay more for a small group tour of the city through Lisbon Riders.

    • This tour gave an excellent overview of Lisbon area with an articulate and knowledgeable guide. A great way to start a three day visit to Lisbon.

    • The tour guide was amazing in that she did the entire tour in five simultaneous languages!

      But the actual tour itself was a bit too rushed! The Alfama stop was a joke! Just a cheesy tourist shop and a one-block walk just touching the outskirts of the district we returned on our own later. There was no stop at Sao Jorge castle at all! It was all just a bit too much and though inexpensive, we wish we had done this on our own instead.

    • The company promised the pick up, except the driver did NOT even bother stopping by the hotel because he was already late. Is that the company's treatment of the client? Is that the famous Portuguese honesty? I almost didn't make the tour, but I'm glad I did finally make it, because our tour guide was excellent and I enjoyed the city sightseeing tour immensely.

    • Great tour but to get the information was fast and hard to understand sometimes.

    • Saw some of the sites to see, not all. Guide was knowledgeable but was not engaging with his group.
