Very nice to discover the sights by hop-on-hop-off bus. Beautiful routes that also differ greatly from each other. I have done both routes and also got off several times along the way. Easy to get out when you want. Downside is that you do not know when the bus is coming and sometimes a bit long is waiting.

When we hopped on the bus in the morning, we couldn’t figure out how we kept missing the Belém area—went around twice before we hopped off. Well it was because the driver didn’t go that way for some reason. When we hopped back in in the afternoon, we had a different driver who did go to Belém. Not sure why the driver in the morning was shortcutting that part of the route, but overall we felt we saw a lot of different areas by using the HOPO bus. The earbuds weren’t the best and I’m not sure I learned a ton from the recording. It seemed to be more music playing than talking, which surprised me considering Lisbon’s rich cultural history.

Good experience, facilitated by the possibility of stopping and picking up in 48 hours at the various stops on the chosen route. The presentation in French of the various monuments and places deserves to be deepened with a better explanation for the use of headphones and the desired language. To do as early as possible in the day, in the evening because of the traffic jams in Lisbon, too long time between stops.
