Full description
Discover Lisbon on this city tour with an entertaining tour guide. Explore the most beautiful sights of the city and learn interesting facts about the history and culture from your tour guide. You can also decide for yourself what you would like to see. You can experience a scenic drive through Lisbon's picturesque districts to the lower town of Baixa. Pass by the famous Rossio Square towards Praça do Comércio (Commerce Square), or along the route of the famous 28 tram line through the narrow streets of the Alfama district, the oldest district in Lisbon. Head to the Jerónimos Monastery, a UNESCO World Heritage Site, and visit the beautiful cloister with views of the green inner courtyard. You can then visit the Belem Tower, the landmark of the city on the Tagus River. Here you can see a model of the aircraft that completed the first aerial crossing of the South Atlantic in 1922. Here you will have enough time to take some photos of the beautiful city before continuing on to the Monument to the Discoveries. Admire the 30 oversized statues in honor of Portuguese sailors as well as a world map and the marble Compass Rose.

We recommend!

I had booked the tour for our second day right away to get to know Lisbon a little more individually. Exactly right, as it turned out later. The tour started directly with the pick-up from the hotel, only their real details were fixed, so we were able to express what is important to us, or let us surprise you. Everything was tailored to our wishes, something was told at the respective destination, after which we were able to see the sights alone. The tour awakened interests and ideas for our remaining days in Lisbon. We loved it!

It couldn't be better! Thank you very much, Paolo!

For example, as a beginner in Lisbon we wanted a city tour: Paolo meets the right mix of tourist hot spots and "local" areas. You travel comfortably in the air-conditioned bus and at the same time hear many interesting stories and lovable anecdotes from his beloved hometown from the friendly Paolo (in the best German). A great tour that we can recommend without hesitation. Obrigado Paolo!

The private tour with Paulo Coelho was the highlight of our 3 day stay in Lisbon. We were very impressed by his vast knowledge of the city, society and politics. We felt his enormous bond with his country and its history. He understood how to captivate us with his explanations throughout the city tour and to bring us closer to his beloved Lisbon. Paulo is not only a tour guide, but also a gifted storyteller who knows how to involve his guests in such a way that the 4 hours were over far too quickly. We can highly recommend him.
