Lisbon Beetle Tour Options
When making your reservation, you'll have the choice between two different tour options:
3 hour tour
On the day of your activity, at the time of your choice, you'll be picked up from your hotel in the centre of Lisbon by a vintage Volkswagen Beetle, one of the most iconic cars in the world.
So begins your unique guided tour of the Portuguese capital, which will take you on a route around the city's most beautiful and important places of interest. Accompanied by your English-speaking guide and driver, you'll visit monuments like the 15th century Jerónimos Monastery, a World Heritage Site; the elegant Praça do Comercio square; and the emblematic Belém Tower.
Reaching the beautiful Belém district, you'll indulge in a tasting of Portugal's most famous sweet treat, which shares the neighbourhood's name: the Pastéis de Belém, a delicious custard tart. Mouth-watering! Your Beetle ride will also take you to the highest point in Lisbon, the Senhora do Monte viewpoint. From this hilltop chapel, you'll enjoy incomparable views over the Portuguese capital.
This tour takes place at 8:30 am and 2:30 pm.
7 hour tour
Having been picked up from your hotel in Lisbon, you'll set off in the VW Beetle to Sintra, a World Heritage Site home to numerous natural and architectural attractions as well as an indescribable magic. You'll then visit nearby Cascais, a picturesque coastal town which breathes elegance around every corner. Driving down the Avenida Marginal which borders the Tagus River, you'll make your way back to Lisbon.
Back in the Portuguese capital, you'll enjoy a tour of the main places of interest, including the Jerónimos Monastery, Praça do Comercio square; and the Belém neighbourhood, where you'll of course get to try Pastéis de Belém. Finally, you'll explore Alfama, Lisbon's most historic district.
This tour operates at 8:30 am.
