  • Lisbon 72-Hour Hop-On Hop-Off Bus, Tram and Boat Ticket

    1. Lisbon 72-Hour Hop-On Hop-Off Bus, Tram and Boat Ticket

    Discover all areas of Lisbon with a combined bus, boat and tram ticket, and get access to the public transport system along the way. Explore the city’s monuments and museums in myriad neighborhoods on 3 different double-decker bus tours, a Yellow Boat tour, and a tour by historical tram. Marvel at the Manueline architecture of Lisbon's squares and avenues on the Belém Lisbon tour, and discover slick, modern buildings on the modern Lisbon bus tour. Travel back to the “Age of Discoveries” in Belém and Ajuda, and meander around the traditional neighborhoods of Alfama, Mouraria, Baixa, Chiado, Estrela, and Lapa. Take a ride on Lisbon’s oldest mode of transport and climb aboard a tram to the Castelo São Jorge. Travel through historic areas such as Mouraria and Graça. Pass under the 25 de Abril Bridge and on to Belém aboard the Yellow Boat. See monuments such as the Torre de Belém and Padrão...

    The 72 hour all inclusive pass is the best value imo because you pretty much get a tour of most of the city. I unfortunately wasn't able to do the tram tour but I used my ticket to ride the city trams and that was good enough for me. my only critque is that it's hard to find the bus stops so they should try to add more specific directions on where they are.

  • Lisbon: 2.5-Hour Hills Tour by Electric Bike

    2. Lisbon: 2.5-Hour Hills Tour by Electric Bike

    Explore some of the 7 hills of Lisbon by electric bike, and see more than you would on a conventional sightseeing tour. The easy-to-drive electric bikes are eco-friendly and boast a stylish vintage design that will turn heads as you explore the hidden sights of Alfama, Mouraria and Graça, some of the most historic neighborhoods of the Portuguese capital. Cruise up to panoramic observation points, passing antique shops and enchanting restaurants along the way, and get a unique perspective of the city and its people.

    Absolutely the best way to get close and experience the different boroughs of Lisbon! We thought it would be fun to try out electric bikes and get a quick tour. Wow! Bikes move you much faster than walking yet you still get the "on the ground" sense hearing sounds and feeling pace of people. The noisy little carts are cute but youre still an observer. Gliding through the super narrow roads in Alfama was definetly the highlight. DoubTful we would have taken the time to get so deep into this ancient and magical land of yore. Our guide was super knowledgible of history and maneuvering in traffic. Louis made it super safe and one of the top 3 memories of Lisbon!! We do plan on getting electric bikes~ Btw- we're active 65 ladies... so don't hesitate to go for this fantastic adventure !

    Our guide Bruno was great. It was the right amount of history and entertainment for us. We had opportunities along the way to get a snack and drink. The only bummer was that the rolled up plastic cover on the Tuk Tuk is right in your view and you either have to look up through the plastic window or bend down to look out under the cover. On the positive side, we were protected from the sun.

Peter was a great guide, very informative tour highlighting the history of Lisbon. Pace was good for us first timers. May husband had various minor things go wrong with his bike, but other guide (sorry. I didn’t get his name) was quick to help. If you want a history lesson and fun ebike tour, we highly recommend.

With your tours, we were able to see all the curiosities of your beautiful city with clear and numerous explanations

Very interesting tour over 3 hills with comfortable E-bikes and very nice tour guide (Nuno)! Thanks a lot!

Excellent service. Professional and helpful staff.
