What To Expect

Meet your guide at your Lisbon hotel or designated meeting point 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 (own expense).

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.

Saskia S, Oct 2017
This tour is definetly worth its money. You are driven around the city and if you have to walk, most of the walking is downhill which is nearly impossible in Lisbon. You get to visit Belem and taste a pastry there which is included, you visit the Watermuseum right before lunch which was very nice, the restaurant even provided a vegetarian dish which is not easily found in Portugal. Afterwards you go to one of the best view points in the city and can optional visit the castle on your own expanse. Then you take a stroll through the city to the Fado museum where the driver will pick you up again and lets you off at one of the drop off points as the end of the tour. Elisabeth was a very nice and knowledgable guide, Thiago a very good driver. I fully enjoyed the tour.

If you only have 1 full days in Lisbon, this is a good day tour for you, all the points listed in the tour were visited. We drove by famous streets, bridges of Lisbon, including Avenida La Libertad, stopped at Tower of Belem, Discovery Monument, mid morning snack of egg custard at famous bakery, visited St. Geronimo Cathedral. Brief stop for lunch at restaurant that serve mostly locals, delicious seafood. During afternoon visited water reservoir, walked through Alfama neighborhood, tour guide Daniel bough each of us a shot of Ginjinha, another cathedral, visited Castle St. George, which has beautiful view of city and ocean, and visited another Miradouros before dropping us at Rossio Square. It is a packed day, well planned and worth the money.

This day tour of Lisbon was absolutely PERFECT in every way!! Miguel of CoolTours Lisbon was both knowledgeable and passionate about the city's history, culture, and food too. He took us to a local place for lunch and we sampled the original pastry the country is known for. We highly recommend this company and guide whose English is excellent. Karen and Chuck N

Lisbon is pretty and there is no better way to see it other than with a local. We were picked up on time by Mihaela who was great. She was funny and extremely knowledgeable. We enjoyed learning the history, site seeing and tasting amazing Pastel de nata!. Mihaela also gave us great tips of where to eat in the city and what to do. Highly recommended.

David B, Apr 2018
Very informative tour of the city of Lisboa. Everything You want to see in Lisboa city center is up-hill haha. The Behlem Tower and the Mãe dÁgua Mother of Water were not open as it was Good Friday. The Jeronimos Monastery was very beautiful and I was awestruck by the intricate design and the work that it took to build something so beautiful that long ago. The walking tour and the lookout are well worth the effort as it seems you are going up-hill both ways. The Portuguese egg tart pastry, pastel de nata is to die for. We bought more throughout our stay. Andres, our guide, did a very good job

Jayesh H, Mar 2018
This was a great tour. Our guide, Patricia picked us up from our hotel and gave a preview of the day. We started with the Belem Tower and then walked over to the Monument to the Discoveries. From there we headed to taste the custard tart pastel de nata. From there we walked over to the Jeronimos Monastery. We did not go into the monastery but the adjacent church. If you want to visit the monastery, then that would be done to your own expense and at another time. We then took a tour of the viaduct and then head to the historic center where we had a walking tour and took in some more sights. We visited St George's Castle and afterward had a sample of Ginja - a cherry liqueur that is drank from little chocolate cup. And finally, more walking through the little streets and ended up in Rossio square.

Manderbee, Nov 2017
If you are in Lisbon for only a short time, this would NOT be a tour I recommend. Does not see the key points of Lisbon. Viator partners with local tours and ours was CoolTour Lisbon. Would not recommend, slow, boring, lunch was a 'trap' suggests everyone eat together and it took 90 min. Guide also smoked, so 2 min before get into van for next stop you could be sitting scrunched next to smoker horrible if you are ex or non smoker. Our van was full, 4 of the people decided to go their own way right after lunch, I chose to to the same early afternoon. Not worth Suggest Food and Wine Tour 1/2 day which was so much better

Martin_H, Apr 2018
This is a good one day tour of Lisbon to get a feel for the city and its history and to see the highlights. It is a nice mix of riding and walking. You are walking most of the afternoon be aware of that. Miguel was very good and shared a lot of background information, as well as being enjoyable to be with. Our only problem was that our English-speaking tour ending up being 3 English speaking guests and three Spanish-speaking guests. Miguel did a great job of explaining things in both languages but it certainly reduced the effectiveness of the tour and the amount of interaction between the guests and with the guide.

Janet J, Sep 2017
This was a great overview for a first time visitor to Lisbon. Inez did an excellent job guiding us through the city in spite of the rain. I enjoyed being with a small group. There was no difficulty hearing the interesting information about beautiful Lisbon. A visit to Pateis de Belem for a delicious custard was a special treat. Lunch at a local restaurant by the reservoir was delicious. I highly recommend this small group city tour, especially for a first time visitor.
