Get acquainted with the spectacular sights of Lisbon on a private full-day tour of the Portuguese capital. With a personal guide, you’ll visit hidden treasures and famous landmarks while learning about Lisbon’s ancient history. Marvel at São Jorge Castle; admire the myriad of cultures present in the Alfama neighborhood; and gaze at Belém Tower (Torre de Belém) before sampling an exquisite ‘pastel de belem’ (custard tart). On this private tour, you’ll receive undivided attention from your guide. Round-trip hotel transport is included.
At your Lisbon hotel, greet your private guide and board an air-conditioned coach. Lisbon’s rich and ancient history makes for interesting commentary: listen as your guide regales anecdotes and facts about the Portuguese capital.
Head first to São Jorge Castle — an ancient fortress that reigns supreme from a hilltop — and admire Lisbon’s medieval vestiges from this lookout point. Discover a little-known church; explore the multi-cultural labyrinth of the Alfama neighborhood; and absorb the ambiance of Comércio Square, flanked by the Tagus River.
Purchase lunch at a restaurant recommended by your guide before proceeding to the Tile Museum — home to fine examples of ceramic tile making.
Admire the Baixa, Principe Real and Barrio Alto neighborhoods; appreciate European treasures in the museum of São Roque Church; and browse the bespoke boutiques of Chiado.
Your final stop will be the province of Belém — a coastal gem replete with beautiful architecture and famed for its exquisite pastel de nata tarts. Gaze at the elaborate Belém Tower (Torre de Belém) — considered a city symbol — and then visit Mosteiro dos Jerónimos (Jeronimos Monastery).
Your private tour concludes with drop-off at your Lisbon hotel after a full day of exploration.
