Lisbon in One Day Small-Group Tour

Lisbon in One Day Small-Group Tour

Meet your guide at your Lisbon hotel and set off for your small-group guided full day tour of Portugal’s hilly capital. Board an air-conditioned minivan and head to Lisbon’s riverside district Belém and see two UNESCO World Heritage-listed monuments. First, visit the 16th-century Jeronimos Monastery and listen as your guide explains how the ornate arches and abundance of pinnacles is a prime example of Portuguese Manueline-style architecture. Nearby, climb to the top of Belém Tower where soldiers once gazed over the Tagus River searching for incoming invaders.

Continue to the Monument to the Discoveries which honors Portugal’s Age of Discoveries and its navigators who left to explore trade opportunities with India and the Orient. From here, enter a nearby cafe and taste a renown Portuguese egg tart pastry, pastel de nata (included).

Next, stretch your legs with a compelling walking tour through the downtown Baixa district. Explore Rossio Square and its wavy cobblestone tiles. Then, observe to the northwest the impressive Neo-Manueline façade of Rossio train station. Learn how Lisbon’s devastating earthquake of 1755 led to massive projects to rebuild nearly 85 percent of the leveled capital, from your expert guide.

Move along to Bairro Alto, Lisbon’s hip nightlife district. Then, stroll alongside colorful buildings and tram lines towards the Chiado neighborhood full of boutiques, bookstores, theaters, and charming cafés.

Take a break and enjoy time to explore more on your own. Perhaps sip a coffee or taste some local delights at a nearby café (own expense).

Reconvene with your guide and head to Lisbon's oldest district Alfama. Learn about the influence of the Moors in this 8th century neighborhood and then meander around narrow streets up to Graça viewpoint. Relish one of the best bird’s eye views of Lisbon as you capture postcard worthy photos.

For you final destination, venture to modern Lisbon and Parque das Nações. Hear how this portion of Lisbon went under tremendous renovations to host the 1998 Universal Expo. Branch off for some free time to visit the Lisbon Oceanarium (own expense), one of Europe’s largest indoor aquariums, or checkout interesting shops. Then, head back to your hotel where your tour ends.

Our guide was amazing. We had dreadful weather which was very unexpected. He did a great job of showing us around his home town and varied the itinerary to work around the weather including a lunch break in the shopping centre. Would love to come back and see more on a nice sunny day. Especially loved the warm custard pie with a dusting of cinnamon and icing sugar.

I enjoyed this small group tour. We were taken by mini bus with a multilingual guide who was outstanding. With the van, we were able to see much of Lisbon even though a lot of time was spent in traffic. This is a great tour especially if you have limited time in Lisbon and want to get an overview of the city.

We had so much fun!! Antonio was the perfect guide with great knowledge of the city, good stories and funny jokes! Definitely recommended especially if you have only a few days in Lisbon :)

This was 5 star all the way our guide Andrea had an amazing wealth of knowledge and really knew her history. She delivered everything in her that held your full attention. The trip was a full day but covered everything and more than we expected. A trip not to miss out on as we would have never covered, seen or taken in the information if we had tried to dos ourselves. Well done Andrea can we take you around the world with us. Linda and Fitzroy from London

Great tour. Very detailed, both guides were well informed and answered all our questions. Both guides were also very good drivers who negotiated the traffic and narrow streets with skill and calmness. I will recommend your Lisbon company tour to all I know who are going to Portugal
