Finally, the tour will pass by the famous Pastéis de Belém, the perfect place to try one of the portuguese delicacies.
We start at the Belém Tower, considered the symbol of Lisbon. From there we walk to the iconic

This was a treat. We started with a TRAM tour though some neighborhoods, then jumped off to walk and learn some history and get a flavour for the people of Lisbon. We then hopped on a modern tram to get to Belem. Felt like a real local! Sarah is easy-going, and really knows her history of her country. She got us "front-of-the-line" to sample some pasteis de Belem as well. So much fun--and Tram 28 was really cool! It felt like I had a sister in Lisbon taking me around. Recommended!
