Choose from a half-day or full-day city tour. And the rest? That’s entirely up to you. Explain your interests and desires, and your private guide will then plan a schedule based around your wishes.
Your local guide will meet you at your hotel at the requested time and set off via public transport, on foot or by bike, depending on what form of transport is most suitable. Costs for public transport are included, but private cars and taxis will be at your own expense.
If you’re a first-time visitor, you might want to cross the popular attractions off your bucket list, such as Lisbon Cathedral, Belém Tower or the imposing St George’s Castle. If you’re familiar with Lisbon and wish to discover something new, let you guide show you around some of Lisbon’s lesser-known areas.

Itinerary:Half-Day Tour Example Itinerary:9am: Meet your guide at a central Lisbon location and head for the vintage Lisbon tram 28 for a ride up the hill to historic Alfama, one of Lisbon’s oldest districts. From here, enjoy a bird’s-eye view of the city.
10.30am: From your elevated position near the mighty St George’s Castle (São Jorge Castle), gaze down at Lisbon below. Listen as your guide share details about the various neighborhoods and explains the history of the city. Wind down towards the Moorish Alfama district, a labyrinth of winding, narrow streets. This lively area is full of popular restaurants and bars and the sounds of traditional Portuguese Fado music spills out onto the streets.
Take in Alfama’s top attractions, including the 12th-century Lisbon Cathedral (Sé de Lisboa), The Doll Hospital (Hospital de Bonecas) and the Jesuit church of São Roque, which hides an ornate and expensively decorated interior behind its deceptively simple façade. Sample ginjinha (a sweet cherry liqueur), take photos of the colorful street art and stop into craft stores to see fine Portuguese tiles.

1pm: If you’re a seafood lover, take a recommendation for your guide and dine in a riverfront restaurant that has won prizes for its innovative cuisine. After eating, wander through the downtown Baixa area, taking in the grand structures that were all built in the distinctive Pombaline style following the earthquake of 1755.
3pm: Spend some time looking around Belém Tower, Lisbon’s iconic riverside fortress. Enjoy a scenic cable car ride and nibble on sweet pastéis de nata (Portuguese custard tarts). Admire Lisbon’s awe-inspiring Monastery of St Jerome (Mosteiro dos Jerónimos) and peek into the National Coach Museum, home to a fabulous collection of history horse-drawn vehicles. See where the famous explorer Vasco da Gama set off on his expedition to India. As the day draws to a close, say goodbye to your guide at the prearranged departure point.
