Either meet your guide in central Lisbon or enjoy pickup at your Lisbon hotel. Hop aboard your luxury coach and begin with a short trip to Marqués de Pombal Square.
During the drive, you’ll learn about the great earthquake of 1755 from your guide, before arriving at the statue of the Marquis of Pombal — a monument that honors his role in the redevelopment of Lisbon after the 1755 earthquake — in the square.
Next, head to Lisbon’s vibrant central strip, Avenue da Liberdade, and enjoy the electric atmosphere of the city at night before you visit areas such as Rossio Square, the Tagus River and the Belém district.
See, too, the renowned Monument to the Discoveries, commemorative of famous Portuguese explorers, and the UNESCO World Heritage-listed Belém Tower, a memorial to Portugal’s exploration to the Americas. Nearby, learn about the famed Portuguese who are buried at the UNESCO World Heritage-listed Jerónimos Monastery.
Continue to the 25th of April Bridge, which spans the Tagus River and closely resembles San Francisco’s Bay Bridge. From here, enjoy views of the illuminated monuments that mirror gold in the Tagus River.
Return to the heart of Lisbon and spend the last part of your evening at a local restaurant, savoring delectable Portuguese food and experiencing a captivating fado show. See the best of Portugal's melancholic music genre as you listen to live songs performed by talented fado singers.
When the show concludes around midnight, continue to enjoy the evening independently or return to your hotel.

The Faro was amazing. However, for dinner there were no options provided and neither myself nor my brother eat seafood, which is what the main course was. When we asked for an alternative, it seemed like it was a big deal, although one was alternately provided. It was a great time, but I gave it only four stars for the seafood and the attitude.
This was a wonderful first night in Lisbon. The dinner was good and entertainment very professional and lovely to listen to. The bus tour on the way back was informative and pleasant. Tour guide made an effort to make sure we were near our hotel.

This was a definite hiighlight of our visit. The tour of the city by night compliments the day tour as you now see the monuments lit up for the evening. The commentary was excellent. We really enjoyed the Fado show which was performed by 3 performers. In addition there was also a folk dance show in addition to the Fado music. The restaurant decor was an excellent choice and the meal was pleasantly well prepared and filling. We definitely recomment this experience to all first time visitors to Lisbon.
