Lisbon Old Town Tour
This tour is perfect for those who wish to discover the city through its historic and cultural heritage. Our fearless drivers will to take you along Lisbon’s oldest quarters, the most picturesque and colourful neighbourhoods characterized by its narrow streets, winding alleyways, steep flights of steps and old ladies at the windows.
Visitors always fall in love with the old districts such as Mouraria, Graça and Alfama and you will soon make part of this Lovers list. In addition to the eco tuk-tuks, you can expect a quick stop in Alfama for a 10 min walking tour, because there is nothing like a power walk in the old Arab district of the city. Be ready to see for yourself the well-lined lanes, small arches and stone-paved terraces that are a delight to explore.
The highest point in Lisbon is located in Graça and we will climb it together in a 3 wheels electric tuk until we reach the beautiful belvedere that kisses the sky. It’s called “Nossa Senhora do Monte” belvedere and it’s high, impressive, with an astonishing view over the city and if you fall down… Forget that option.
