Full description
Get ready for a relaxed tour along Lisbon's riverside. Start at the cosmopolitan city center you’ll be able to see the buzz of this beautiful European capital and the levels of tranquility will increase as you advance towards Belém.

The entire ride to Belém is along the riverside which means you can expect an extremely pleasant journey full of light, a beautiful landscape, and vibrant city life.

If you are interested in history and know about the importance of the Portuguese Discoveries, you will love this neighborhood. Here everything is magnanimous, historical, and sacred. It was from here that many of the great Portuguese explorers embarked on their dangerous and ambitious voyages transforming Portugal in to the first global empire.

This is one of the most pleasant tours that can be taken in Lisbon, the perfect combination of tranquility, harmony and landscape contemplation mixed with the busy riverfront esplanades, long green grass fields crowded with musicians, joggers and artists enjoying Lisbon's essence!

Very well organised trip with super guide. Informative and a great introduction to Lisbon from the city centre to Belem and the river mouth, Flat terrain and a safe cycle pathway. Our guide was Joao Montero and we could not have wishd for anyone better - enthusiastic, knowledgeable and proud of his city.

Tiago took us on a 3 hour tour through Lisbon, showing us some of his favorite places to eat, historical sites and fun things to do. He was very knowledgeable and easy to talk with. It felt like an old friend was showing us around a new city rather than someone reading the same old script. I would highly recommend booking a trip with Tiago. - Josh and Debbie from Texas
