Lisbon Private Tours and Lisbon Small Group Tours

First-time visitors will want to take a look at our Lisbon City Tour, which explores the neighborhoods of Baixa, Bairro Alto, and Chiado with a trained historian, providing a thorough 2.5-hour introduction to charming and historic quarters like Praça do Comércio and São Roque Church, as well as some lesser-frequented spots. This is the best way for visitors to get their bearings in the city, as well as develop the kind of fundamental understanding of the history and built environment that will enrich the remainder of their trip. Or, additionally, we suggest our Lisbon Old Town Walking Tour, a stroll through the Alfama neighborhood with a local architect, journalist, or other expert, taking in one of the few sections of the city not leveled by the earthquake of 1755—and including smashing views over the city. Don’t know what to do in Lisbon? We highly recommend our Belém Tour, which focuses on Portugal’s role in the Age of Discovery and visits the Jerónimos Monastery, Tower of Belém, and, naturally, the Pastéis de Belém bakery for Lisbon's signature treat. Also very popular is our Sintra Day Trip from Lisbon, a half-day excursion to this mesmerizingly beautiful and historic town that Lord Byron once referred to as “glorious Eden.” This tour explores palaces, villas, and the many mysteries that reside in this historic enclave. Anxious about your trip? Book our Welcome to Lisbon Tour and we’ll meet you in Lisbon when you arrive for a 2-hour orientation chat and mini-tour.
