What You Can Expect

Lisbon Private Shore Excursion: City Tour by Minivan Including Food and Wine Tastings

Savour the delicious Portuguese codfish cake!

Meet your guide at the Lisbon port and hop into an air-conditioned minivan for your 4-hour private guided shore excursion. Begin your adventure by experiencing the intriguing history of Lisbon. Visit Lisbon Cathedral (Sé de Lisboa), the oldest church in the city. Hear how the cathedral survived devastating earthquakes, including the Great Lisbon Earthquake in 1755, and observe its architectural renovations in both Romanesque and Baroque styles.

Next, drive up to the hilltop neighborhood of Graça and admire panoramic views of Lisbon. Continue to the old quarter of Alfama, known for its Moorish heritage and the establishment of fado music. Then, head down to the Belém district and enjoy the serene coast of the Tagus River. Visit the Monument to the Discoveries and learn about the famous navigators like Vasco da Gama, the explorer first to reach India by sea. After stopping at the UNESCO World Heritage Sites of Belém Tower and the Jerónimos Monastery, taste a delicious pastel de Belem (pastel de nata). Learn how this egg tart pastry was created before the 18th century by catholic monks at the Jeronimos Monastery.

Drive onward to the Chiado district passing the Basilica of Estrela. Then, walk through the lively Baixa district and see its elegant squares including Restauradores, Rossio, and Figueira. After a stroll, perk up your taste buds with a fresh glass of vinho verde or “green wine.” Savor this young wine with traditional flavors of cod cake. Then, try a pour of Port paired with local cheese. After a fun four hours head back to the port where your tour ends.

Vlad was great. He has a great knowledge of Portugal and is a lot of fun to be with. We enjoyed our time with him and wish we could have spent a full day instead of only 5 hours. It was like spending the day with an old friend. We would love to go back and join him again. We highly recommend Vlad and his tour.

The four of us had a wonderful half day tour of Lisbon with our local guide, Harald. He knows the city inside out and gave us a nice balance of history with the local vibe of the city. The food and wine tastings were a worthwhile addition. I asked that he show us a nice place for lunch to end the tour and he did not disappoint, even getting us past the lineup due tot his friendship with the owner. Bloked with locals and a wonderful meal. Great tour!
