Full description

Discover three amazing Portuguese cities: Porto, Nazaré, and Óbidos with a bus sightseeing tour from Lisbon. Immerse yourself in the rich heritage of Portugal and feel inspired by the architecture, history, and culture of these beautiful cities. Get comfortable in an air-conditioned vehicle as you start your journey toward the town of Óbidos, where we will start with a guided tour accompanied by a local guide. Completely surrounded by ancient walls and preserving all its medieval charm, Óbidos is one of the most famous and visited places in Portugal, and a must-see in the surroundings of Lisbon. The narrow cobbled streets that can be seen in Óbidos will immediately transport you to a medieval atmosphere.

These streets are home to perfectly preserved old houses, historic buildings, and important monuments. Dominating the historic center in the highest part of the village, visit the Castle of Óbidos, which is declared one of the 7 wonders of Portugal. Start at the village main gate, and discover the amazing narrow streets outside of the beaten track. Visit the secret Jewish neighborhood and its white-painted houses with some great spots to take pictures. Walk along Rua Dereita, the most famous street, full of stores and traditional restaurants, and get to the castle of Óbidos.

It was built in the 12th-century, although it has Roman constructions in its beginnings. It can be said that it is one of the best preserved and largest fortresses of the country, being listed as one of the Seven Wonders of Portugal. From there, you will clearly see the great wall of Óbidos, another of the town’s great symbols. Continue the trip heading to possibly the most famous fishing town in Portugal, Nazaré, where you will visit the Forte de Sao Miguel. This site has become world-famous for the giant wave that hits its coast every winter and attracts lots of surfers from all over the world.

Then, walk through O Sitio, where the famous streets present a collection of religious buildings and are a hugely popular site for pilgrims from all around the globe. Hike your way up to the summit, where you'll find medieval fortifications, 17th-century churches, and modern shrines.

Wander the courtyards and plazas surrounded by ornate structures, basilicas, and statues. Next, head to Oporto, the last stop of the day. First you will have 1h to have a typical Portuguese lunch on your own to regain energy, and then, the visit will start. A vibrant 1.5-hour walking tour, where you will admire the stunning Old Town on the picturesque Douro River, complete with six bridges, is a UNESCO World Heritage Site, Igreja Carmen, Estação São Bento, Igreja São Francisco and Ponte Don Luis. At the end of your tour, you will return to the center of Lisbon and your guide will recommend things to do during the rest of your stay.

We had a great day in Lisbon. Our guide Pedro was very informative and attentive. He spoke amazingly, and I learned a lot about these three beautiful cities. We made 3 stops and his knowledge of each place was very good. We thought that one of the steps was Coimbra, but we went to Obidos, we were confused at the beginning but when we arrived to Obidos we were amazed. The views of the town were so beautiful and their colorful houses were so cute, now I understand why they changed this step. This tour was a very unforgettable experience. I highly recommend this tour if you have a few days and want to visit a lot of things but without losing anything.

The opportunity to discover and explore these three must-see parts of Portugal, for those who have a short stay in the country, is a great option and such a fantastic idea. The day is intense, many hours, full of discoveries, but Pedro made the day pleasant and funny. You experience Portugal from different points of views, and you know each unique characteristic of the 3 cities! I recommend this tour if you want to have an authentic Portuguese experience and don't have much time.

Doing this experience was without a doubt the best choice I ever made. If you want to visit Portugal and you don’t have much time, you have the choice to take this tour and experience a great route for these three cities in only one day. I'm just going to say that I fell in love with Portugal only in one day and I will come back again to stay more days in each city. Our guide made this experience unforgettable and so easy to do through the many hours with the duration of the visit. Totally recommendable, thank you very much!
