“A brilliant way to see the city”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 30, 2013

From start to finish we had a wonderful time.
We found the starting point at the top of Parque Eduardo vII with no problem.
Our guide for the morning was Andre, an absolute gem. The bikes were GT and in good condition. We peddled at an easy pace and stopped at various locations were Andre gave us just enough background to the stop without overloading us with information. At one stop in the city Andre treated us to the local Cherry liqueur, not too much, so we could still ride in a straight line. Through the city to the waterfront, were we had a short break and Andre again treated us, this time to a Pastis de Belem.
Along the side of the River Tagus we went to Belem, again stopping at various points of interest.
We were sorry when the tour ended as we could have carried on all day. A brilliant ride led by the brilliant Andre; obregardo.
After the ride ,if you want some good food at a very reasonable price, go to the modern building housing the Centro cultural. The cafe bar on the top floor [not the restaurant] has decent food at decent prices.

“Lisbon sights in a half day”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 29, 2013

We had a lovely sunny morning in Oct and the must on the river cleared before we got there. A hot afternoon in fact. Downhill from Parque Eduardo VII. Down through Avenida via Marquis da Pombal square. History lesson on the way interesting but relaxed. From town centre by river cycle along the coast under the bridge and past the marinas to the discoverers monument (Harry's) and on to the end at the defensive tower. Eat a little short walk back to the fish restaurants the other side of the last marina. Sardines excellent. A great day. You need to make your own way back to town. If you like a long walk and the weathers good then you can pause at a bar and take in the sun.

“Wonderful, as expected based on Trip Advisor reviews”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 27, 2013

We did this bike tour the first morning of our stay. The meeting place was easily located by our taxi driver and our guide, Miguel, was just great. The bikes were very comfortable and everything was downhill or flat. Belam is a fantastic destination if you are in Lisbon and biking is a perfect way to get there. I will say it was crowded in areas along the river and a challenge to ride the bike that slow. But, that is a minor concern. We had a wonderful lunch along the water and then enjoyed the archeological museum and then the coach museum. Would have been nice to have seen more, but it as a full day for us so we took the bus to Figuera Plaza. This tour was a tremendous value and greatly contriibuted to our enjoyment and understanding of Lisbon and Belam, as well as Portugal in general.

“Lisbon Bike Tour”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 27, 2013

If you are going to Lisbon, do not miss this incredible bike tour! Miguel was our gracious guide who navigated the streets of Lisbon as the famous exploerer Vaco da Gama navigated the seas in discovery of new lands!
With this bike tour you will discover the beauty and lore of a glorious city as Miguel shares with you his vast knowledge of history. He will make this tour the highlight of your trip!
We take bike tours to discover cities whenever we travel, and by far Miguel has topped ALL of them! Don't miss this one, I promise!
