Know More about this tour

Start with pickup from your Lisbon hotel in the morning or early afternoon, depending on option selected. Cross over the Vasco da Gama Bridge, the longest in Europe, and wave goodbye to Lisbon as you travel south toward the lush green Arrábida Natural Park, located on the shore of the Sado Estuary. As you cruise along the roads, hear your private guide explain more about this beautiful winemaking region.

At the edge of the Arrábida mountain range, stop in the small town of Palmela. Ascend the fortified castle — a former Moorish stronghold — around which the village is built and take in astounding views of the surrounding peaks and farmland, as well as of Lisbon and the coastline. Hop back into the car and continue the journey with your guide, weaving through the slopes of the forested Arrábida range.

Call into an intimate family-owned winery in the heart of the protected park. Explore the cellars, before raising four local wines to your lips during a tasting session. Before leaving the park, stop at the highest point, a 1,640-foot (500-meter) peak to snap some photos and take in the verdant vistas.

Return to Lisbon, stopping briefly at the Christ the King monument, which — just like its famous namesake statue in Rio de Janeiro — overlooks the city. Your tour then finishes with a drop-off back at your Lisbon hotel.

Full-Day Tour Upgrade (8 Hours)After pickup from your Lisbon accommodation in the morning, follow the same itinerary as the half-day tour.

Instead of leaving Arrábida Natural Park for Lisbon, continue on to the fishing village of Sesimbra, which is situated at the foothills of the adjacent mountains on the Atlantic coast. Perhaps sit down for lunch in one of the town’s restaurants (own expense), before enjoying free time to lounge on the beautiful golden sand beach.

Next up is the pretty village of Azeitao, also located in the foot of the Arrábida hills amid olive and cork trees. Call into a local wine cellar, where you can try the region’s renowned sweet muscatel wine and a red variety.

Travel back to Lisbon with your private guide, stopping to soak up the city views from the Christ the King monument. Your tour ends with a drop-off back at your accommodation in Lisbon.

  • The guide was great, and very accommodating! He had a good relationship with the tour guides at wineries, and was very knowledgeable about the history of the region. We were able to see many things without feeling rushed. Highly recommend!

  • There was four in our party, the morning half of the trip was very good and the winery we visited was very generous with their sampling.
    We ordered a wonderful cheese, very inexpensive to go with our wine. A wonderful experience even at 11 am. The afternoon winery although large and well known served so so samples. Lunch at the fishing village was excellent. Family owned and very reasonable.
    Beautiful. I recommend the morning trip only.

  • This was truly a private tour and we had a great time wine tasting and enjoying a tasty seafood lunch in sesimbre.... Would recommend doing this tour as it takes you off the beaten tourist path and into the local flavor of portugal. Our guide, Gustav, was very lively and had some great stories to share with us as we passed through the country side seeing the various landmarks.

  • This was an excellent tour. Joana was the perfect guide. She arrived on time, was exceptionally friendly, fun, and made sure we enjoyed ourselves. She had lots of information on both Lisbon and the surrounding area but didn't overwhelm us or make us feel like we were on a school trip. The winery we visited was small and quaint and the wine was very good. We sampled 6 different kinds and these were large pours.. not just a mouthful like you get in Napa and had the opportunity to just relax and chat while we sampled. We also purchased several bottles as the cost especially compared to the US was so cheap! The drive back was relaxing and laid back with some stops for photo ops of some lovely scenery,

  • We enjoyed this tour very much. Luis was an excellent guide.

  • Excellent we had a private tour for just the two of us. Guide was very good and the tour was a great way to see a little outside of Lisbon.

  • Excellent .. just excellent. Gus was a great guide. Vineyard was superb.
