What to expect

Start your day in central Lisbon, where you'll meet up with your guide, before hopping aboard a train for a quick journey out to Belem. Once there, you'll step into the breathtaking Jerónimos Monastery to explore Portugal's distinctive Manueline architecture.

Next, your expert guide will share stories of the Portuguese Age of Discoveries as you sink your teeth into an original custard tarts at the first bakery to ever produce them. From there, you'll head off to see some of the most important sights in the Belém neighborhood, including the Monument of the Discoveries and Belém Tower.

Time to sit back and relax for a bit. You'll head to the waterfront and board a boat for a scenic cruise along the Tagus Estuary to the city center. Enjoy unforgettable views from the water as you pass under the 25th of April Bridge and beside the towering Cristo Rei monument.

After disembarking from the boat, you'll break for lunch in the city center. Your guide will have plenty of recommendations to suit all tastes and budgets. In the afternoon, your guide will lead you on a stroll through Alfama, Lisbon's oldest neighborhood. This charming area is challenging to visit on your own—so luckily you've got a local expert to show you the way. You'll end the tour at the entrance of São Jorge Castle, where you can choose to explore the castle on your own (not included in the tour) or continue getting lost in the picturesque streets of Alfama.
