  • Lisbon: Southern Sights and Wine Private Tour

    1. Lisbon: Southern Sights and Wine Private Tour

    Cross the Tagus River from Lisbon to the south side and visit a medieval castle with an archaeological museum inside. Travel through the dense forest to the immense Portuguese coast surrounded by the Atlantic Ocean, with beautiful beaches to explore. Located next to the sea, between Setúbal and the fishing town of Sesimbra, Arrábida Natural Park has incomparable natural beauty. Here, see how the blue of the sea alternates with the white tones of the chalk cliffs and the depths of the green vegetation that covers the mountain range. Have lunch in a sunny fisherman village, and taste the fresh flavors of the Portuguese fish-based gastronomy. Passing through the dense forest, visit an old sanctuary on the top of a dramatic cliff by the sea, and discover astonishing landscapes. Enjoy a wine tasting session with one of the most prestigious local wine producers.

    We had a great experience with Cesar. The fishing village of Sesimbra and the beach are delightful and the wine tour was super informative and relaxed! The nice views from the Arrabida mountains were an added bonus! Cesar is very passionate about the local culture and food and we had a very pleasant time.
