Visit the iconic monuments of the city in a 4 hour private tour
Are you a first time visitor and you want to start with what's more important? Did you stop for a few hours and you don't want to miss the essential? Then, this is the right tour for you!
On this Classic tour, I will provide you with the information that a first time visitor needs to have about this vibrant city! We will visit its most important monuments, as I give you all the practical information that you will need to dive into the local life!
We start wherever it suits you better - whether in the hotel where you're staying, the cruise ship terminal etc.
In this tour, we'll drive through the city, passing by its most beautiful sites: Liberty Avenue, Rossio, Commerce square, the Parliament and Basílica of Estrela. When wanted (and whenever parking restrictions don't forbid us), we stop for pictures.
We'll then stop in the Belém district, to visit its most iconic monuments: Jeronimos Monastery (visit of the church and, by paying an entrance fee, also the cloister. We'll skip the lines because I'm an official guide) the monument of the Discoveries and Belém tower (exterior views). During the tour, enjoy a coffee stop, tasting one of the city's delicacies in a typical local pastry: the famous custard tart!
The tour can be customized. Please note that on Mondays, the Monastery is closed for visits. We can only see it from the outside. If you want, we can visit Ajuda Palace instead - the last royal residence in Lisbon.

My husband and I had a wonderful 1/2 day driving tour with Filipe. He is extremely knowledgeable on the history of Portugal/Lisbon and shared so many wonderful stories/facts with us along the tour. Since it was our first time to Lisbon, he was very thorough on showing us all of the various neighborhoods and sights within the city. He also gave us some excellent restaurant recommendations. I would highly recommend Filipe.
