Great way to get outside of Lisbon and see the countryside and ocean. Note e bikes do not do all the work - there are very steep hills and you will have to do some work so you should be moderately fit. This also means...More

The bikes are in excellent condition, the guides (Xavier and Jorge) so engaging and knowledgeable about their city.
Book a tour! Don’t...More
Excellent day out, expertly guided in a relaxed manner by Ethan. Great route, including an off-road section through the pines above Sintra which was wonderful. Hilly in places but the e-bikes made it feel quite easy. Ethan also took us to a super restaurant up...More
We had a group of six and Daniel was our guide. He was very patient and put up with our group jokes and even joined in at times. We had a great tour to Sintra and around the countryside all the way to the coast...More

We were five people who spent three hours with Catarina. What a wonderful guide she is! Very knowledgeable, funny and well organized. And no silly guide jokes. We will highly recommend this tour to anyone.
A pending candidate to become a World Heritage Site, Lisbon's downtown (the "Baixa Pombalina", or simply "Baixa") is a perfect example of anti-earthquake construction, having been rebuilt following the 1755 earthquake by the famous Marquês de Pombal (hence its name). Its offer is vast: restaurants and cafes in Rossio and Restauradores, outlets and shops in the Áurea, Augusta, Prata and other famous streets, the
imponent Praça do Comércio and its Arch, the luxury shops along the Avenida da Liberdade, this is the beating heart of the city center. The Baixa also grants easy access to trains leading to Sintra, the trams that go around the Castle hill, old neighborhoods or even take you to Belém, and Lisbon's traditional restaurants and cafes. Considering a visit to the Fashion and Design Museum (free entrance) and don't forget to try the famous liquor, "ginjinha"!
