OVERVIEW

Lisbon, Portugal’s hilly capital is a coastal city known for its cafe culture and soulful Fado music. From imposing São Jorge Castle, the view encompasses the old city’s pastel-colored buildings, Tagus Estuary and the Ponte 25 de Abril suspension bridge. Nearby, the National Azulejo Museum displays 5 centuries of decorative ceramic tiles. And just outside Lisbon is a string of Atlantic beaches, from Cascais to Estoril.

 

HIGHLIGHTS

 

Casa Pasteis De Belém

The Casa Pasteis De Belém is the traditional home of the delicious Pastel de Nata, the staple food of the sweet toothed Portuguese. Pastel de Nata is a custard tart that is sprinkled with cinnamon. The chaotic cafe and bakery has been selling Pastel de Nata for over 150 years and no trip to the Belém district is complete without a sampling one.

 

Hills Tramcar Tour

No visit to Lisbon is complete without taking sightseeing trip to one of the city's trams. But if you're travelling with kids, the best option is to take an official tour using a tourist tram. Departing from Praça do Comércio, the streetcar passes some of the Portuguese capital's most famous historic monuments and because the ticket is the hop on hop off variety and valid for 24 hours, passengers can design their own itinerary - very useful when considering the needs of children, especially youngsters. The trams easily recognized by their old-fashioned red cars work on a circuit that takes in the west of the city as far as Estrela before doubling back, passing Alfama, Graça and Chiado districts along the way. Remember, passengers can alight at any point along the route for an ice-cream stop or even a lunch break.

 

Discover Lisbon by Sidecar

A relatively new addition to the stable of fun vehicles riding around Portugal’s capital, the motorbike with sidecar provides an entertaining way to tour and see the sights. Driven by a qualified guide, you’re taken around the old streets of Lisbon, with one person in the sidecar and another on the motorbike, and stop off on the way to take some great photos and learn some interesting facts about the city.

Sit back and enjoy the ride in this classic sidecar, taking you back in time to visit the historical areas of Old Lisbon.

 

Glide on a Segway

Segways are quite common these days, and can be seen in airports, used by the police in some cities, and in many other situations. They’re a great way to get around and the perfect means of transport for Lisbon’s sometimes difficult to navigate hills and narrow streets. In few minutes you’ll easily learn to ride this self-balancing 2-wheeled vehicle, touring round the city as you stand on the Segway’s platform, allowing you to see the attractions of Lisbon as you glide comfortably on this novel transport.

 

A Joyride by Jeep

We hate tourism tours, a local tour company that tries to do things differently, as you might have guessed from the name. They’ve certainly achieved that aim with their King of the Hills tours, taken in what they call their ‘one of a kind vintage, seven-passenger convertible jeep’. The tour takes you up and down the hills of the city, getting to know the places ‘only the locals know’, in a ‘crazy ride’ with one of the local drivers. The idea here, obviously, is not to take a typical tour, but to experience something a little different, and to enjoy the novel approach to tourism that this young company is so proud of.

 

Electric Bike Tour

It’s certainly not unusual to see traditional bikes being ridden around Lisbon, but we sometimes feel sorry for the rider when he or she has to struggle to climb one of the steep hills the city is known for (and for which we should be grateful, because they give us such wonderful viewpoints at the top!). An electric bike makes such climbs much easier, though, and it’s now possible to hire one of these great inventions to quickly reach the best places for the most stunning views. A tour like this provides a fun way to see the sights and to get a little exercise at the same time – but not too much. Helmets and reflective vests are provided, and you can ride around the city on the morning, afternoon or night tours.

 

The HippoTrip Tour

Of all the tours mentioned on this page, this is certainly the only one that takes place on both land and water. The HippoTrip takes place aboard an amphibious vehicle, the first of its kind in Portugal, and provides a fun-filled guided city tour by a unique means of transport. The HippoTrip bus takes you round the city and on to the water in an entertaining 90-minute trip that will have heads turning and mouths dropping as the large vehicle drives in to the water and then simply keeps afloat to emulate the most seaworthy boats. This is a great way to tour the city and see Lisbon with a splash!

 

Lisbon & Sintra by Convertible Beetle

The old, original VW Beetle car is one of the most-loved and best-known cars of all time. Its instantly recognizable shape is synonymous with fun and adventure, and the restored, convertible models used for this tour certainly provide plenty of that! This 3-hour tour allows you to get to know Lisbon with your family or group of friends, and at the same time enjoy a comfortable drive in this classic car. A full-day tour is also possible, which includes the world heritage listed town of Sintra, a beautiful destination and a perfect place to complement the historical districts of the capital.

 

Tuk-Tuk Tours

An auto rickshaw is a three-wheeled cabin cycle used as an essential form of urban transport in many developing countries. So what’s that got to do with Lisbon? Well, the Tuk-Tuk, as it’s commonly known – due to the sound it makes when in motion – is now available as a mean of seeing the city. This is a fun way to sit back and let yourself be driven around to see the sights, sitting on the back of this novelty transport to enjoy the warm weather and get a great view of the attractions of the old, historic quarters of Lisbon. These fun vehicles come in different colors and sizes, and are operated by two different companies, but all of them provide an entertaining tour and an experience to remember.
