Medieval defensive Castles and a Natural park with mediterranean vegetation
Our private day tour will take you south of Lisbon, across 25th April bridge, to visit Azeitão, Sesimbra, Arrábida Mountain and Setúbal. You will have a diversified experience.
In Azeitão, you will visit the famous wine cellars of José Maria da Fonseca or Bacalhoa, where you can learn everything about the production process and taste its famous "Moscatel de Setúbal" spirituous wine.
Nearby you will have the chance to participate in a unique tile workshop in S. Simão, where Portuguese "Azulejos" are still produced in the traditional way.
Your journey follows to Sesimbra, a picturesque fishing village where we can enjoy the beautiful bay. Its view from the castle is simply fantastic.
Not far from Sesimbra is Arrábida where we will guide you to attest the amazing views of the Natural Park. It's definitely one of the most beautiful spots around Lisbon.
On your way back to Lisbon, we might stop by Setúbal and check the outstanding views from the Pousada, the former S. Filipe Castle.

Having been to Lisbon before we were interested in sites outside of the city and Carla delivered a tour that was everything we hoped for. Arriving on time with a new model luxury van, Carla took us south of Lisbon to see the castles, little fishing villages, one which we had grilled fish for lunch in an ocean side restaurant, a national park and finally a tile factory for a demo on how tiles were made in the 1700's. Looking for the most professional tour, Carla delivered. I would book her again
