5 star rating: Highly Recommended April 2016

Excellent value for money as we had free access to the other city buses and the trams and aerobus. This is a very good way to see as much of Lisbon as you can during a short break. Buses are frequent and take you to all the interesting areas of Lisbon. We particularly liked the monastery, Belem tower blue line tour and the red tram tour was the highlight of our trip, which we did twice to get up to the Cathedral and St Jorge castle. Well worth the money.

the best deal of our portugal trip was the purchase of the lisbon hop-on hop-off tour with four routes including tram
we utilized all 4 routes for 2 days and the entire family thoroughly enjoyed sightseeing around lisbon on the upper deck of the bus
what made the bus trip even more enjoyable was the fact that we had 2 of the most beautiful sunny days in lisbon
kudos to viator for offering such good value and look forward to booking a similar sightseeing tour on our next vacation

5 star rating: Highly Recommended October 2015

Excellent value for the cost. The buses were frequent and although sometimes full there was space for good views. The flexibility to use other local buses and the airport bus was very useful, although if using the airport bus to catch your flight, give yourselves plenty of time to allow for full buses. If you have booked 4 tours you will need 2 days to sensibly achieve an unrushed schedule.

5 star rating: Highly Recommended September 2015

Great way to get oriented in Lisbon. Several routes that take you to places you can see by walking. Validate early in the morning to get maximum use out of the 48 hour pass. Be sure to ride all the different routes and the tram. Lisbon is very hilly, so this is a good way to get to various sites without having to walk the steep hills.

Super duper choice... Covers the entire city. Loved it.

IRINA C

5 star rating: Highly Recommended June 2015

Taking 4 itineraries allows you to see all Lisbon, including it's modern districts and buildings. However, if you want to see only the old city and main attractions, taking the tram tour and blue bus line is sufficient. Purple line bus itinerary is a bit too long and you mostly travel in new Lisbon districts.

5 star rating: Highly Recommended May 2015

Fantastic, had a wonderful time. Very good value and the Tram was great fun. Didn't even have to pay on bus up to castle.

Will defo book with Viator on our next City Break.

Excellent

Christine R

5 star rating: Highly Recommended April 2015

Great value - yellow buses were easy to find and commentary was excellent with supplied head sets. The red tram was amazing and worth the ticket alone. The only problem with the red tram was there are only 26 seats on the tram - so the only realistic place to join is at the start point at Commercial Square - beware - if you get off mid route - there is ittle chance of getting on another tram as they are all full
