This private 3-hour tour provides you with an exclusive way to see the best sights of Lisbon!

After pickup from your hotel, your driver will take you to Lisbon’s highlights including the districts of Alfama, Graça, Belém, Chiado and Bairro Alto.
Stop at famous monuments like the Roman Catholic Sé de Lisboa Cathedral, the hilltop Castelo de São Jorge and Praça do Comércio, a square in Baixa.
