Full description

Get ready for a relaxed tour along Lisbon's riverside. Starting at the cosmopolitan city center, you’ll be able to see the buzz of this beautiful European capital and the levels of tranquility will increase as you advance towards Belém. The entire ride to Belém is along the riverside which means you can expect an extremely pleasant journey full of light, a beautiful landscape, and vibrant city life. If you are interested in history and know about the importance of the Portuguese Discoveries, you will love this neighborhood. Here everything is magnanimous, historical, and sacred. It was from here that many of the great Portuguese explorers embarked on their dangerous and ambitious voyages transforming Portugal into the first global empire. This is one of the most pleasant tours that can be taken in Lisbon, the perfect combination of tranquility, harmony, and landscape contemplation mixed with the busy riverfront esplanades, long green grass fields crowded with musicians, joggers, and artists enjoying Lisbon's essence.

This experience also included a complimentary walking tour with local guides, available until March 31, 2022. Take advantage of the opportunity to continue to explore the city through 7 different routes.

Great bikes, first a good explanation and then on the road, cycling a bit and then a stop with a nice explanation of the area and the history. We had a nice guide who told us a lot and let us taste a nice pastel de nata from Belem. We were only 4 and that was very nice!

Having never done a tour like this I really enjoyed the experience and it was a nice way to explore. The route to Belém along the river was great and more importantly… nice and flat! The only thing I wasn’t keen on was riding along the busy roads from Boost to get to the bike path by the river. Our guide Margarida was very knowledgeable, approachable and took the time to make sure everyone was okay.
