Fast morning

We took the tour with a guide who had a very good grasp of the history of each place we visited, which was well worth it. They managed the time well and the tour was very fruitful. The places visited were well chosen and gave us the opportunity to choose where to return later. I recommend.

Half-day sightseeing tour of Lisbon by coach

Cordial and entertaining guide, provides information on the different places that are visited. Adequate transportation. Recommended tour to visit the most emblematic places of Lisbon in a single tour if you have little time or if you do not have your own transport. Very beautiful landscapes. You visit the carriage museum (entrance included) and enter the free part of the Jeronimos Monastery with accompaniment and live commentary through audio guide. Infallible: try the Bethlehem cakes !!!
