The Oceanario is gorgeous and worth exploring inside and out. It's in a modern part of Lisbon that's very easy to overlook. The tram ride to the Vasco de Gamas bridge is fun. Unfortunately, the yellow buses don't seem to run as often as the red buses. :-/

Very good opportunity to get to know the city a bit, so that you can find your way around better afterwards. The stops were always easy to find. We often do these tours when we're new to the city, so far they've always been great!

Apart from the quality of the headphones, others are very good, practical and cheap

We took the Belem route. Good audio information on the bus. Enjoyed the route
