We invite you to join us in this experience of History, Light, Colors, and Flavors as a Portuguese poet once wrote: “We will now invite the tourist to come with us. We will serve as cicerone and we will stroll through the capital, showing him the monuments, the gardens, the most notable buildings, the museums - everything that is in any way worthy of being seen in this wonderful Lisbon.” Fernando Pessoa, Lisbon: What the Tourist Should See • Start your Sightseeing Day at the most monumental viewpoint in Lisbon at the top of Parque Eduardo VII • Located next to the Parque Eduardo VII and in front of Liberdade Avenue, Marquês de Pombal Square is one of the most notable and historic squares in Lisbon. • Passing by Liberdade Avenue One of the main and, we can say, the most luxurious, elegant, and beautiful avenues in Lisbon • Visiting Downtown: Rossio, São Domingos Church (Free Entrance), Prata Street, Augusta Street, Commerce Square You arrived at Rossio.

We hire a tourist bus for 48 hours, we use the Belén (red) and Oriente (blue) lines. As for schedules, everything is fine, punctual departures at the specified time and at the stops that we got off and took the bus again, also quite punctual. I chatted to getyourguide and a very kind lady gave me a map with a route and schedules at the different stops. We were with children and the bus is comfortable. Regarding the audio guides, I have to say that in our case we only found one that did not work. As a downside, for my taste little information, I would have liked it to be more complete, it's good that they play music (fados) from time to time, but other times they could take advantage of those times to continue telling things about Portugal, curiosities, interesting things, even though They are general and not of that specific route.

This activity was amazing. We enjoyed that a lot! We had great services during all time and routes. All drivers were very friendly and helpful. It was wonderful and magical experience! Thank you.

The most recommended when one goes to a city for the first time. Good combination of buses covering a large part of the city and its main attractions.

They are friendly, helpful, efficient. I highly recommend it, its a great way to see most is the city without walking everywhere

Was superb , I wouldn't be reluctant to encourage anyone .
