Return Details

Returns to original departure point
Begin your private Lisbon tour with a pickup at your hotel. Then, meet your guide, pop into your retro VW Beetle convertible and begin with a drive to the top landmarks in Lisbon. Wind through the streets of Alfama and see Castelo de São Jorge that commands its hillside. From there, discover the famous historic square Praça do Comércio in Baixa.

Continue to amble through the neighborhoods of Belém, Bairro Alto, and Chiado and learn about the areas that were rebuilt after the devastating Lisbon earthquake of 1755. Marvel at architecture with a variety of styles shaped by the shakes of Lisbon’s tremulous past.

Upgrade to a full-day tour: Select the full-day option and enjoy an adventure that not only adds more places to visit in Lisbon, but includes a trip to the fairytale-like town of Sintra. Following your AM exploration of Lisbon, traverse along the Tagus River until you reach the Estoril Coast. Gaze at stunning views until you arrive at the cape which forms the westernmost extent of continental Europe, Cabo da Roca. Snap a few photos here and then head nearby for lunch at a local Portuguese place (own expense). If you would like, sample delightful cheese, chorizo, and pastries. Perhaps, top it off with a glass of flavorful regional wine.

With a full belly, travel on to the region of Sintra and observe the beautiful combination of nature and architectural expression. See how the Arabesque Monserrate Estate and the well-maintained Sintra National Palace elegantly coexist within the lush hillsides. With your guide, thoroughly explore the castles and marvelous buildings which make up the UNESCO-listed town of Sintra. Finally, return to Lisbon as the blue sky wanes overhead. 

Get a well rounded day experiencing Portugal, indulge in Ginja liquor tastings and try Lisbon’s famous pastries.

I really liked my tour guide - Stewart Ryan. He was fun and really knowledgeable. The one thing I didn't realize is that he wasn't accompanying me to Pena Palace. It was fine - I enjoyed wandering off on my own but I thought he would take me on a tour inside the palace. Almost everyone else had a tour guide.

Ask for Arthur Garcia! I’ve had many guides in my life but very rarely one who was so knowledgeable, went out of his way to make the experience extra special for us, and you could tell he was genuinely passionate about his work and providing people with a memorable day.

This was great - really wonderful tour. However, you don't get a guide to walk with you through Sintra, and you basically explore on your own. It would have been nicer to have a guide point out some the highlights of this amazing site.

We had a full day tour with the informative and delightful tour guide, Patricia. We arranged the tour as we did not have too much time in Lisbon, and wanted to learn as much as possible. We were able to ask questions all day long, and Patricia showed us places and gave us much information we would never have learned on our own. Easy five stars!

We really enjoyed this tour thanks to Bruno our tour guide. This is a great alternative to crowded, conventional tours. The sights we visited were beautiful and we had so much fun driving around in the convertible beetle with Bruno. Skip the stuffy tour bus and take this tour.

My family had a short time to visit Lisbon and this was the way to do it. We had some rainy weather, so having a knowledgeable guide and a car at our disposal was great! João was our guide and he was friendly, knowledgable and kind. We have never had a private tour before and this really exceeded our expectations. We stayed in Alfama on a small street that can be challenging to get through, especially with the tram coming and going, so we were told to meet a a nearby, convenient location, which worked out perfectly. João was prepared for us right on time with water, an extra umbrella and blankets to keep us cozy. We saw all of the sites that we were hoping to see plus ones we thought we might not have time for like Palácio Pena in Sintra. I highly recommend this tour, even if your can't drive with the top down. It was a lot of fun. Obrigada, João pelo tudo especialmente, os pasteis de Belém! Tudo foi perfeito.
