What You Can Expect

Lisbon in One Day Small-Group Tour

Walk through popular neighborhoods in Lisbon

Meet your guide at your Lisbon hotel and set off for your guided tour of Portugal’s hilly capital. Board an air-conditioned minivan and head to Lisbon’s riverside district of 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, see the 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).

Afterward, continue to Mãe d’Água (Mother of Water), a massive reservoir built between the 18th and 19th century that stored water from the Águas Livres aqueduct. Inside, see a small museum dedicated to the history of water supply in the city. Access the terrace for an impressive view over Lisbon.

Next, stretch your legs with a walking tour through Lisbon's historic center. See some of the traditional neighborhoods like Castelo, Mouraria, and Alfama, the city's oldest district. Learn about the influence of the Moors in this 8th-century neighborhood and then meander around narrow streets up to Graça viewpoint, where you can take in one of the best bird’s eye views of Lisbon.

Your tour will conclude with drop-off in central Marquês de Pombal and/or Rossio.

Due to a staffing issue, the owner of the company stepped in and took us on a wonderful day tour of Lisbon. We had one couple who only spoke Spanish and the owner spent equal time in translating in English and Spanish so all would be accommodated. We did not have to stand in line for tickets and spent an enjoyable side trip to taste the delicious pastry Lisbon is known for. I would highly recommend this tour and the tour company.

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.
