Planning Your Visit

  • Best time to visit?

    Lisbon is lucky enough to have the warmest winters in Europe without the disadvantage of suffering from intense summer heat. Nevertheless, the subtropic coastal climate is prone to sudden bursts of rain even on its clearest days, so be warned! Going in late spring or early autumn generally means cheaper hotel prices and more manageable crowds.

  • How many days?

    The heart of Lisbon makes a great choice for a long weekend, but many of its top attractions lie within the city's greater subregion. Top day trips include Belém, Sintra, Fátima, and Cascais, with many more besides. Each will need at least an entire day to see, if not two.

  • How to get from Lisbon airport to the city?

    Though Lisbon is cheap by the standards of most European capitals, getting one of the cabs waiting outside the airport can be expensive. If you're traveling somewhere central without much luggage, it's undoubtedly cheaper and easier to take the metro. It should only take about 25 minutes to the city center.

Amazing tour! The guides are very kind and fun. They talk to us about a lot of interesting things about the city. During the trip, they offer an amazing Portuguese green wine. For the people who want a different view of the city, this is perfect. I did it with my girlfriend and is a lot of romantic. This was the best sunset we saw, we love.

Excellent service and tour. I was able to my propose to my girlfriend (now fiancé) at the perfect timing and it was a magical moment for both of us. I would highly highly recommend for anyone who wants to feel the cool breeze, wonderful sight, romantic moment, and something special. Honestly, one of the best date I ever had.

Truly terrific experience! Captain and crew were highly skilled (America’s Cup level experienced) , friendly, and warm tour guides of Lisbon. Their commentary is enjoyable and educational. Great time and a romantic place to get engaged (which we did)! Refreshments enjoyed but conversations even better.

Well organised. Friendly and helpful staffs. Meeting point in a good and easy location. Stunning views. Highly recommended.

We loved it. Nuno was a terrific guide, and his English was fine. Not too much walking, which I quite liked.
