Featuring

1
Cais do Sodré
These backstreets were always notorious for being a sailor's hang-out and therefore one of the eeriest and yes, thrilling parts of town. Fast forward to today, and you will find it, well... pink and one of the trendiest nightlife districts
2
Time Out Market (Short stop)
The Time Out Market concept is Lisbon’s original creation and is housed in what used to be the Mercado da Ribeira, the former main market in the city. In the morning time, you can still marvel at traditional stalls selling fresh produce and fish.
3
Santos, Madragoa and Alcântara
Going west along the river will let you take a glimpse at some of the most typical neighbourhoods. These were traditionally populated by fishermen and fishwives from Northern Portugal, who have infused the place with a lasting and distinctive aura
4
Museu do Oriente
Around 500 years ago, Portugal was the first European nation to arrive at Asia’s shores, and the Orient Museum commemorates this long-lasting relationship. That refurbished cod warehouse from the 40s is now a vault for timeless pieces
5
Museu de Macau
While focusing on the study of Macau and Sino-Portuguese history, this modest jewel boasts an abundant collection of Chinese Art. From numismatic to textile or erotic porcelain, visit it later on for a stunning revelation of the Chinese culture
6
Original Pastel de Belém tasting (Short stop)
Pastel de Nata was created in the 18th century by the monks at the Hieronymites Monastery. Since the opening of Fábrica de Pastéis de Belém, the recipe of the original Pastel de Nata is a secret that you will get to taste, offered by your guide
7
Jardim Botânico Tropical
Created in 1906 and previously called Jardim Colonial. Over 500 species of tropical or subtropical origin with the incantatory ability to transport anyone to exotic faraway lands
8
Igreja e Mosteiro dos Jerónimos (Short stop)
The masterpiece of the uniquely Portuguese Manueline Architecture. This astonishing 16th-century UNESCO World Heritage Site is intimately connected to the most key moments of Portugal's Age of Exploration and thus to the collective imaginary
9
Torre de Belém (Short stop)
An iconic 16th-century fortification, part of a defence system of the mouth of the Tejo River, that also protected the Monastery. Built during the height of the Portuguese Renaissance, it is a UNESCO World Heritage Site
10
Padrão dos Descobrimentos (Short stop)
Ready to set sail towards uncharted waters, this 1960 monument commemorates the key figures of Portuguese maritime endeavours and is one of the landmarks with which the regime has sprinkled the urban landscape throughout the long dictatorship years
11
Museum of Art, Architecture and Technology (Short stop)
Celebrated for both its light-reflective design and cultural programme that marries the three fields in a space for debate, this undulating architectural wonder lets one walk over and savour the river breeze from its grand rooftop terrace
12
Docas de Santo Amaro
Of the several marinas in Lisbon this one is known for having a leisure side to it, with some of the former cargo warehouses having been transformed into quality restaurants open all day, and other ones housing lively discos that are open all night
13
Ribeira das Naus
Sliding by this key historical spot, you can still clearly discern the remnants of the former Navy shipyard where many of the huge vessels that would set sail for distant seas were built throughout centuries of exploration, conquest, and trade

Perfect mix of history and fun

We had an amazing time on the 2-hour tour of Belem with Pedro as our guide. He was very knowledgeable and made the tour both fun and informative. We saw some incredible sights, including the Belem Tower and the Jeronimos Monastery, and Pedro provided us with an interesting historical context at each stop. I especially enjoyed learning about the famous Portuguese explorers who set out from Belem to discover new lands. The tour was well-organized and ran smoothly, and I would highly recommend it

Best tour ever! Lino was amazing!
