Full description
Cycle to the Almada e Cristo Rei statue, overlooking Lisbon city center, on a 3-hour electric bike tour of the southern neighborhoods. Cross the Tagus River, and let your bike take the strain as you climb to the outstetched arms of Christ the King. Meet your group at Praça Martim Moniz for a safety briefing on how the bikes work. Then, bike to the large commercial square of Praça da Figueira, and learn about its mercantile past. Continue along Ruas dos Douradores, passing the site where the poet Fernando Pessoa got the inspiration for his book “Livro do Desassossego.” Admire the ironwork lift of the Santa Justa Elevator en route to Praça Comércio, Lisbon’s largest square. Next, discover the recent developments of Ribeira das Naus, the former shipyard area where many of the Portuguese ships that set sail to discover new worlds were built. Upon arrival at Cais do Sodré, take the orange cacilheiro (ferry) across the River Tagus. Once on the south bank, cycle through the Cais do Ginjal, a former warehouse that used to supply bait and ice to the cod fishing boats of the North Seas. Next, take the Boca do Vento lift to get closer to the statue of Christ the King, or cycle up the hill with no sweat on your electric bike! Enjoy magnificent views of Lisbon and the 25 of April Bridge. After a short coffee break in the botanic gardens of Casa da Cerca, climb to the top of the Sanctuary of Christ the King for the best view of the city. Bike back down hill towards the river, and explore the narrow streets of Almada. Visit the Medieval Museum to see relics of Islamic life in Portugal in the Middle Ages. Then, cross the river again to return to the meeting point and the end of the tour.

Very good compromise offer!

There were 2 couples with 2 different tours, but only one guide. We agreed on a compromise offer. Instead of 3 hours now 4 hours and 25 km in Lisbon up to "up", then up the forested hill, down to Belem with a visit to the Pasteleria de Belem, back on the water with Torre de Belem, monument to Heinrich the Navigator, bridge April 25th, back to the Praca de Commercio. Our guide Jorge (?) Or George (?) Spoke German very well, and knew his way around very well. With him there were five of us, so we got all the information very well.

A very pleasant morning for a first discovery of Lisbon

Excellent ride this Saturday, January 19, 2018 in the company of Roberto, our guide for this bike ride. He knows his country, his city very well, with lots of anecdotes, little places to discover, atmospheres conducive to listening to stories from sailors and boats. He has a great generosity to make us love his country. And .... he speaks French very well. Roberto, if you read this comment, the little restaurant that you advised us was really delicious. And the electric bike is really great! The pleasure of cycling without fatigue!
