Full description
The Night Riders Tour will you another perspective of Lisbon. On this tour, you will have a mix of experiences. At night, this part of the city has another spirit of living that you can't find during the day. At night, you will find a quiet Belem, giving you the perfect opportunity to see the monuments of Belém and gardens at this time of the day. Showing you all this at night will also be giving you the best sense of the past, into an era with no electricity. Belém is full of historic monuments and all of them have mystic lighting, focusing on their special details.

Belém is the perfect area to enjoy the river and the best the city has to offer in terms of history, known as the historic district of the Age of Discovery. It was from the Belem waterfront that Vasco da Gama and other explorers departed for their voyages. These events are celebrated today by grand monuments and museums in the neighborhood. 

The sensational architecture of the Tower of Belem and Jerónimos Monastery (both World Heritage sites) is the result of the discovery of the sea route to India, the opening of trade with Japan and the colonization of Brazil and parts of Africa and Asia. See monuments adorned and embellished with motifs of exotic lands elaborately carved in stone, as are the heroes of the age on the colossal Monument to the Discoveries. In the night lights, all these monuments will look mystically bigger.
