Learn the history of Lisbon on a full-day city tour, available as a group or private option.

Following a pick-up from your hotel, travel by minivan through the city’s historic neighborhoods, starting with Portas do Sol and Nossa Senhora do Monte belvederes.

Wander the winding streets of one of Lisbon’s oldest areas, before going to Lisbon Cathedral, the oldest church in the city. Admire the rose window, reconstructed from fragments of the original. Next, explore the Alfama, one of Lisbon’s oldest neighbourhoods. Walk down twisting cobblestone streets and stairs lined with quaint cafés en route to Belém. Here, you will learn how the city expanded during the period of the “Age of Discoveries.”

Next, marvel at the dazzling facade of Jerónimos Monastery, one of Portugal’s architectural jewels. Go to the defensive Belém Tower at the mouth of the River Tagus, and see the Monument to the Ages of Discoveries. Taste a traditional Pastel de Belém custard tart after lunch.

In the afternoon, head back to the city center, following the 18th-century aqueduct to one of Lisbon’ hidden gems; the Mãe d’Água Reservoir in the Amoreiras district. End in the Baixa area, and learn how Lisbon was rebuilt after the devastating earthquake of 1755. Baixa is also one of the best places to enjoy Lisbon by night!

This is a very well planned experience. Our guide David has been doing this for 7 years and knows both his history and how to efficiently navigate Lisbon streets. At the end of the tour, he pulled out a map and reviewed every where we went which helped put it all together.

Toller Ausflug mit sehr kompetenter Tourleiterin

I and my family went to Lisbon for a short break and had booked this tour. It's one of the best things we did by doing so. The whole trip was superb and really outstanding. Our guide (and driver) Rui (I hope the spelling is right) was a young man who really loved his city of Lisbon and his country Portugal. It showed throughout the whole day of the tour. He was so passionate about the whole tour. It was really amazing. Extremely friendly and superbly knowledgeable about Portugal and Lisbon in particular. It showed that he brushed up continuously on his vast knowledge of the city. We must also congratulate him on his driving abilities, specially parking the minivan in so densely car filled city with narrow roads in the old quarters, that is Lisbon. Well done Rui and we wish him all the very best and were extremely glad that he showed us around. We will recommend this tour very highly for anybody who wants to go around Lisbon in a day, the third oldest city in the world!

Pedro was a warm and informative guide, highly recommended.

Lisbona è una città ricca di sapori, fado e gente cordialissima, questo tour ci ha permesso di assaporare le prelibatezze culinarie ma anche le bellezze architettoniche e di panorama. La nostra guida UI è stata attenta ma anche molto preparata considerando che non si è limitato a dare una spiegazione superficiale ma bensì storica e architettonica molto dettagliata. Buonissime le Pastel de Nata di Belem si scioglievano in bocca. Mille Grazie
