In this small-group day tour, see the most interesting attractions Lisbon has to offer, and get a taste of the culture of the Portuguese people.
Admire the Belém Tower, a Lisbon landmark and UNESCO World Heritage site on the Tejo River. See a commemorative replica of the airplane flown by Gago Coutinho and Sacadura Cabral, two Portuguese pilots who undertook the first transatlantic flight in 1922. Visit the Monument to the Discoveries. Built in 1960, the monument is 60 meters high and was a gift from the Republic of South Africa. It has 30 larger-than-life statues honoring Portuguese seamen, as well as a marble world map and compass rose.
Stroll across Empire Square to the Jerónimos Monastery, a UNESCO World Heritage site, and tour the church. Let yourself be seduced by the aroma of the famous pasteis de Belém, small puff pastries with pudding-like filling, a typical Lisbon specialty. Ride through several of Lisbon’s picturesque quarters to the Pombaline neighborhood, Baixa.
Explore the historical trade district. A ride in the Santa Justa elevator (built in a style inspired by Gustav Eiffel in 1902) and a visit to the Cafe Brasileira are musts. The tour culminates in a ride in the famous Streetcar 28 through the narrow alleys of Alfama, the oldest quarter of Lisbon.

When our cruise ship arrived, we were picked up and warmly welcomed by our guide Paulo Coehlo. He drove with us through the beautiful city of Lisbon. The stops at the bigger sights were great and Paulo brought us very near to them. It was a wonderful day in Lisbon. Thanks to Paulo Coelho.
The five-hour tour with Mr Paulo Coelho was very nice. With his competent knowledge, he gave us a detailled insight over Lisbon. We did hear a lot of things which not only had historical backgrounds. He made sure that we were able to enjoy the tour without any hectic. His kind and competent character delightes us and we can recommend him without any doubt.
