After meeting your guide at your Lisbon hotel or in central Lisbon, hop aboard an air-conditioned coach for your half-day city sightseeing tour. Relax as you head to Belém, home to the 16th century UNESCO World Heritage-listed sites Belém Tower and Jerónimos Monastery (own expense). Admire these prime examples of Portuguese Manueline art, as you traverse the edge of the Tagus. Lisbon sightseeing is at its best at the Monument to the Discoveries. Learn how this monument celebrates Vasco da Gama’s expedition to the Americas during Portugal’s Age of Discovery in the 15th and 16th centuries. Next, enjoy one of the finest collections of 17th century luxury coaches in the world at the Coach Museum. On Mondays, both the Coach Museum and Jerónimos Monastery are closed, so in turn visit the Casa-Museu Medeiros e Almeida showcasing a comprehensive art exhibit by Portuguese artist António de Medeiros e Almeida. Not in the mood for art? Instead indulge in pure opulence at the neoclassical Palácio Nacional da Ajuda (Ajuda Palace). Ride in your coach towards the coast of the Tagus River and pass the historic Commerce Square (Praça do Comércio), which was completely rebuilt after the devastating Lisbon Earthquake of 1755. From the beautiful waterfront see the beautiful Sé de Lisboa cathedral a 12th century church remodeled numerous times, but carrying Roman architectural roots. Continue on to the Moorish influenced historic district of Alfama. Learn about this neighborhood, home to Fado, Portugal’s own musical genre. Wind around streets and pop into a local wine shop to sip Port (fortified wine), exclusively produced in the Douro Valley of northern Portugal. As you Lisbon sightseeing tour comes to a close, marvel at the 25th of April Bridge which suspends over the Tagus River, the longest of its kind in Europe. Notice its similarity to San Francisco’s Golden Gate. Then return to central Lisbon where your tour ends.
I miss the tour because they send me a wrong location. They are very non operative. I called them and I told I am waiting for them and then they mentioned the location is not correct. Once I reach to the proper location, they left me. They did not even refund for my tour. I don'd know this "Cityrama/Gray-Line logo" tour but I will recommend people not to book this tour again. pathetic thing this, they did not apologized for their job. Anyway good luck for them.
My kids and I stopped in Lisbon for a day and we didn’t have much time to spend in the city, but the tour turned out to be amazing even for small kids! We saw the main highlights of a magical city and I got to taste some port wine :). Highly recommended company: the organization was on top. We ran on time and could return back to the airport as planned.
a great start to have a quick overview of lisbon city and old town with this tour. i was actually running late by half an hour, due to my delayed flight. really grateful that Mariza, the tour guide kindly waited for me, only to find out upon rushing to the meeting point that i was in fact the only visitor for the day! so thankfully, they didn't cancel the tour altogether. it was indeed a nice and relaxing afternoon to learn about lisbon, thanks to Mariza's informative guided excursion via the comfortable van as well as walking tour.
We were on a cruise ship so took a taxi to the assigned meeting spot very reasonable located on bus amongst many across in the park. Was basically a driving tour, saw many points of interest, stopped at a location to do some quick shopping, ended up with a bit of a walking tour through some narrow streets, very picturesque! Ended tour with a stop at a lovely souvenir shop with samples of wine. From there we could walk back to our ship. Easy and relaxing tour... would recommend.
The 4-hour tour was a very brief glimpse into what the city has to offer. It wasn't an English only tour so the guide spoke for but a minute on a particular topic then 5 minutes in various other languages. Our Uber drivers were much more communicative. At our first stop Coaches Museum the guide let people wander off without giving anybody a time to meet up again.
This was a very uninspiring tour led by an old guide who clearly didn't like Americans-- not sure why-- but he was annoyed whenever the English speakers would ask questions. I don't remember his name but he had grey hair and was in his 60's I'm guessing. It was packed with 60 people and the guide explained everything in at least 4 different languages-- English, Portuguese and Spanish and French, so often we would have passed the sight by the time the English came around. We spend a lot of time at the Coach Museum, which is the largest collection of carriages in the world. I found it mildly interesting but it had nothing to do with what the tour was supposed to be-- an overview of the city. I asked a few questions and the guide was clearly annoyed because he needed to keep to a rigid schedule. I just kind of felt like cattle on this tour-- they picked us up from a nearby hotel but then left us for about an hour to process us onto other buses. The only good thing is that our group has some ladies on it staying at the Four Seasons, so even high society ladies chose the boring, affordable tour too. I would pay more for a small group tour of the city through Lisbon Riders.
