Full description
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 the Moorish castle in Castelo. 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. Travel down twisting cobblestone streets 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 before lunch. After lunch, 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!

My husband and I were the only two on the tour so we had our driver/guide Joao's undivided attention. He was extremely knowledgeable and we were able to ask lots of questions and have a great one on one with him. He also tailored the day to what we wanted to see because we had already been to some of the places on the tour. All in all, it was a great day and we would highly recommend.

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.

Lisbon is a city rich in flavors, fado and very friendly people, this tour allowed us to savor the culinary delicacies but also the architectural and landscape beauties. Our UI guide was attentive but also very prepared considering that it was not limited to giving a superficial explanation but rather a very detailed historical and architectural explanation. The Pastel de Nata from Belem melted in the mouth. Thank you very much
