What You Can Expect

Private Tour: Lisbon and Sintra Sightseeing Tour by Convertible Beetle

Private Tour: Lisbon and Sintra Sightseeing Tour by Convertible Beetle

Begin your private Lisbon tour with a pickup at your hotel. Then, meet your guide, pop into your retro VW Beetle convertible and begin with a drive to the top landmarks in Lisbon. Wind through the streets of Alfama and see Castelo de São Jorge that commands its hillside. From their, discover the famous historic square Praça do Comércio in Baixa.

Continue to amble through the neighborhoods of Graça, Belém, Bairro Alto and Chiado and learn about the areas that were rebuilt after the devastating Lisbon earthquake of 1755. Marvel at architecture with a variety of styles shaped by the shakes of Lisbon’s tremulous past.

Upgrade to a full-day tour:
Select the full-day option and enjoy an 8-hour adventure that not only adds more places to visit in Lisbon, but includes a trip to the fairytale-like town of Sintra. Following your AM exploration of Lisbon, traverse along the Tagus River until you reach the Estoril Coast. Gaze at stunning views  until you arrive at the cape which forms the westernmost extent of continental Europe, Cabo da Roca. Snap a few photos here and then head nearby for lunch at a local Portuguese place (own expense). If you would like, sample delightful cheese, chorizo and pastries. Perhaps, top it off with a glass of flavorful regional wine.

With a full belly, travel on to the region of Sintra and observe the beautiful combination of nature and architectural expression. See how the Arabesque Monserrate Estate and the well-maintained Sintra National Palace elegantly coexist within the lush hillsides. With your guide, thoroughly explore the castles and marvelous buildings which makeup the UNESCO-listed town of Sintra. Finally, return to Lisbon as the blue sky wanes overhead. 

To get a well rounded day experiencing Portugal, feel free to indulge in wine and spirit tastings, and don’t forget to try Lisbon’s famous cakes.

Highly recommended. We had a minor issues with the exhaust from the VW but once the roof was open everything was ok.

This is one sensational way to see not just Liboa itself but the magnifacent countryside that's all within a 20 kilometer distance from the city. Our Guide and Drive Ricardo went out of his way to show us a area he clearly loves and knows like the back of his hand. Magnificent scenery, historic landmarks, geographical wonders--just amazing how much is packed into 9 1/2 hours. I cannot say enough good things about this touradventurehistory lessonfunindividual attentionit's just you. This is one of the best travel experiences we've ever had. Do not miss it.

We did this tour on our second day in Lisbon and it's a great and fun way to see the city. Our drivers Luis and Joao turned up bang on time at our apartment in funky pink and purple restored VW's and we set off on a tour of the city which lasted 4 hours. The drivers were very accommodating and stopped wherever we wanted whilst also telling us about the history and sites that are worth a visit. It was great fun and the cars certainly raised interest around town with people waving at us along the way. If you want something a bit different from the regular tours you should definitely do this. Thanks Luis and Joao for a fun afternoon!

We absolutely loved our tour and our guide Luis. We did the full-day tour and we were picked up right outside our flat rental in Lisboa. We started in Sintra and then drove along the coast to Cascais and Belém. Luis made sure we understood where we were going and always asked if there was something else we preferred to see instead. We trusted his recommendations and we weren't disappointed! We had a choice of places to have lunch, we opted for the traditional Portuguese style restaurant and it was delicious! We ended the tour with some porto wine and pasteis de Belém yum! in the park near the Torre de Belém. I would highly recommend this tour, especially if it's your first time to Lisboa.

The tour was great. It felt like we were led around the city by a friend. Sintra was beautiful and the drive along the coast was impressive. The day we went on our tour it was a little cold. Fortunately our driver packed a blanket it and it made the weather more tolerable. Overall a great tour.
