    Really worth it!

    The tour was really amazing, Belem is a really cool area of Lisbon and very different from more downtown areas like Alfama. This is a must do when you are in Lisbon! The guide was very knowledgeable and the pastel de Belem that was offered to us was really delicious. I really recommend doing this tour.

    Belem is very worth seeing, which is why a lot of tourists come together. This made the tour good but also exhausting.
