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.

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.

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.

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

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.
