Full description

This is a tour of the five senses: see magnificent landscapes, feel the breeze, and fall in love with the blue sea. Taste the amazing treats of a region that stands for excellence in the production of wine, cheese, and regional sweets. The vibrant yellow, the color of the appetite, and the warming sun are predominant in this tour. On this customizable full-day tour, cross the Tagus River from Lisbon to its south bank over the 25 Abril bridge, the 27th largest suspension bridge in the world. See Cristo Rei, a giant statue that was inspired by the Christ the Redeemer statue of Rio de Janeiro, Brazil.

It was inaugurated in 1959 to express gratitude because the Portuguese were spared the effects of World War II. Its location boasts a fabulous view of Lisbon. Explore Vila Nogueira de Azeitão, a typical villa known for its wine and cheese production as well as regional sweets. After this, it's time to explore Arrabida National Park. Driving on the highest mountain road in the park, there will be several stops at the most interesting viewpoints. Break for lunch in Setubal, the most important center of Portugal's fishing industry.

Have a lunch of delicious seafood or grilled fish and take a tour through the town. Visit Palmela Castle with its views over the peninsula and Atlantic. Return to Lisbon by the Vasco da Gama bridge, the longest in Europe with a total length of 12.3 km.

Our guide Antoine was a very excellent guide, passionate about the local history and culture and very friendly and helpful as well. He customized the trip to our liking asking us what we'd like to see and what we'd like to eat. When we said we wanted something local he took us to Bombordo in Setubal which had the best octopus we've tasted in Portugal. Highly recommend it! We even requested a stop at the beach for a quick dip and he very kindly made it happen. The tile painting offered in this tour was also so much fun and quite an unique and interesting experience. All in all a very good guided tour, definitely worth your time if you want to go sightseeing outside of Lisbon.
