Private Walking Tour: The Manueline Art and a Custard Tart
Discover the new found lands where the navigators arrived and from where they got back bringing so many exotic products, through the eyes of a monument dedicated to all these conquests.
Travel back in time until the XVI century and delight yourself by looking at the Belém Tower, which lays on River Tagus' light blue waters.
After visiting the magnificient Saint Jerome's Monastery, the jewel of Manueline Art in Portugal, taste the local crunchy custard tarts from the XIX century, seasoned with one of the favourite spices navigators brought from Asia: cinnamon.
To give it a big finale, check all territories where the Portuguese arrived in a huge world map at your feet, by the Monument to the Discoveries - the caravel made of stone looking at the River flowing into the Atlantic Ocean.
Note: We can always try to adjust the starting times.

Marta was a fantastic tour guide. We were to do the Belem tour, but she notified us of a strike that closed Belem Tower and the Monastery. She provided alternative suggestions in real time and we ended up doing the Lisbon Upper Districts & Downtown tour. It was a great alternative with the sites being closed. She was very knowledgable, had a great sense of humor, and was able to keep the attention of our group that ranged from a 3rd grader to a senior citizen. Very highly recommended.
