What You Can Expect

City Sightseeing Lisbon Hop-On Hop-Off Tour


Lisbon is a city of contrasts, and you can experience both the historic and cosmopolitan parts of the city on a choice of two routes.

You will discover the city's sights at your own leisure including the cultural quarter of Belem, the Marques do Pombal Square, the Tower Vasco da Gama and the Lisbon Ocenarium, built in 1998 for the international exhibition.

City Sightseeing buses run every half an hour so you can customize your own tour by hopping on and off at any stop, as many times as you like.

Your ticket is valid on both routes to cover all the sights you would like to visit! Each route makes frequent stops - simply hop off where you want to, and return to any stop to continue your tour.

The best way to visit a city. Wonderful experience!

Great way to see Lisbon without having to walk the hills. The city has some sites that can't be reached by walking, so this is the best way to see them. Validate the 48 hour pass early in the morning to get maximum use.

Took the Hop-on/Hop-off tour bus for 2 days. The best time to use these buses is first thing in the morning, since it's not as busy and things are alittle less hectic. The afternoon brings in a lot more people and crowds, the buses are more packed. Your paper voucher is all that's needed for the driver. In Lisbon vs. Madrid for instance, the driver is the only employee on the bus no other attendant. So you give your voucher to the bus driver at any bus stop you decide to hop-on. The main thing on the voucher is the BR booking reference code that he inputs into his handheld ticket device that will authorize/confirm the BR code with HQ. You then get a paper ticket printout as your ticket for the 2 days. The driver does not call out the upcoming bus stops, so you need to pay attention to where you are and the map that they give you also listen to the audio tour which helps you to identify locations on the map and where you are, so you know when to hop-off. Pretty simple. The bus routes do overlap, mainly at the Marques de Pombal Square and the train station to Cascais etc among others. The bus does stop for awhile at these two main stops to pickup/dropoff passengers and wait for people too. The Red route is the more popular and frequent route with more people and stops. The Blue route is less frequent, but does take you up the coast to where the Lisbon World Fair was held years ago. Great area to visit, alittle more modern looking area. Lisbon is really charming European architecture, with funiculars and street cars. Pretty cool. The buses give you a great overview of the city and you can decide where to spend most of your time. Highly recommend, great service. Would use again.

only way to see Lisbon but be aware that the Navigator monument stop is about 25 minute walk away but a lot enroute to see on foot. The queues are horrendous in August due to cruise stop offs and getting a seat on top is only a reality at main terminal hub. Do red route first then get onto the blue route back at the terminal 1 - if you are going to airport which was unexpected bonus. We always use hop-ons whichever city we are in but a detailed map prior to leaving was not available for this one - only a list which meant finding the stop for the Gulbenkian Museum was a bit trial and error but would not have missed it for the world - brilliant Lalique exhibit and IInternational art including Monet and pre-Raphelite gems. Queues for all the Belen attractions are incredible so start early and you will need the 2 days to see it all - really enjoyed the commentry aswell especially the addition of Fado on the track

5 star rating: Highly Recommended August 2015

cost actually included two different routes. We were unable to do both due to time restrictions as we were cruise passengers. We have used these viatour hop on - hop off tours several times. They are always worth the money. A good overview of the destination which gives options if you have time to take advantage of the transport and some special inclusions they offer.
