Full description

Get ready for a relaxed tour along Lisbon's riverside. Starting at the cosmopolitan city center, you’ll be able to see the buzz of this beautiful European capital and the levels of tranquility will increase as you advance towards Belém. The entire ride to Belém is along the riverside which means you can expect an extremely pleasant journey full of light, a beautiful landscape, and vibrant city life. If you are interested in history and know about the importance of the Portuguese Discoveries, you will love this neighborhood. Here everything is magnanimous, historical, and sacred. It was from here that many of the great Portuguese explorers embarked on their dangerous and ambitious voyages transforming Portugal into the first global empire. This is one of the most pleasant tours that can be taken in Lisbon, the perfect combination of tranquility, harmony, and landscape contemplation mixed with the busy riverfront esplanades, long green grass fields crowded with musicians, joggers, and artists enjoying Lisbon's essence.

Our five Star is for our young guide João Pedro Rodrigues Fernandes. Only one star for Boost the company, for providing two very heavy bikes with horizontal bar to two over 65year customers. They call them ‘vintage’ be aware!!Thanks to our guide who managed to resource a last minute bike with slightly lower bar. As novices , our guide allowed a gentle ride at our pace. Will do it again but not thru GetYour Guide or BOOST. I recommend anyone looking to do bike ride to visit the site and check the bikes offered before any commitment. Good luck.

The cycling itself is great fun and we had beautiful weather (24 degrees, plenty of sun) that makes up for everything in February. Beautiful electric bicycles, a nice experience, although you can't really cycle through. There are also many walkers, scooters etc. We had two nice local guides. Helpful and spoke good English. However, the tour itself is quite boring. Few real sights except the bridge April 25 and in Belem. We thought we could go to the monastery in Belem, but after a Belem pastry (we had to pay for coffee ourselves) we immediately went back and followed the same road. I expected more, but had a nice afternoon.

I had the most amazing afternoon! Peter shared so much wonderful information. We rode along the water, which was such a beautiful view. We covered quite a few sites along the ride, stopping to share info and take pictures. The electric bike comes in handy to make this not much of a workout. This tour was a highlight of my trip. Thank you!
