Awesome tour! Just two of us and our guide Filipe on a personal bicycle tour of Lisbon. We arranged to pay a customized rate for the two of us, and lengthened the tour, so that we were out for about 7 hours altogether. Filipe was extremely accomodating, and put together just the right combination of woods trails through Monsanto Park, and routes through the city, down to Belem, back along the riverfront, with a return to our hotel. He shared his knowledge of plants, trees and vegetation in the park, as well as his knowledge of the history of the city of Lisbon during the rest of the route. Also took us to a great local restaraunt along the river for petiscos, and to a delicious pastelaria for the best version of their traditional custard tart that we found during our entire trip! I would highly recommend seeing Lisbon on a tour with Lisbon Bike Tours. Even if you are not up for a more demanding route like we took,you should definitely consider their standard 3 1/2 hour tour of the city....it is a downhill ride all the way!

This is by far the best activity we did on our trip to Lisboa. Filipe and Miguel our guides made our cycle of Sintra and the surrounding areas unforgettable. From cycling thought scenic countryside to dining alfresco on a beautiful beachside, they were great company and great fun! We would reccomened them to anyone who seeks something alternative on their travels. Thanks again guys

Awesome! Had so much fun on this trip, it was great. Miguel was an incredibly nice guy, had a lot to talk about and we got to see the castle, eat some delicious food, and see the incredible coastline and beaches from the kayaks. Helped that the weather was absolutely perfect when we went. It was a nice relaxing trip with fantastic views and memories plus Miguel demonstrating some great cliff jumping in order to get great pictures. Would do it again in a heartbeat!

Would recommend this for the first day as you see part of the city on a bike and continue on to Belem, giving you an idea of where you want to return to. Our guide was delightful and did an excellent job of explaining the history of Lisbon at each stop. A great way to see the city!

3 guides with a group of 13 meant we were all looked out for and included. Most bikes had a basket on the front so no problem carrying water bags etc. A gentle ride all downhill or flat cycling stopping off many times along the 4 hour tour to take in many areas of interest with plenty of photo opportunities.
These guides clearly love their city and talked passionately about Portugal's history and achievements.
A stop off for a coffee and a Pasteis de nata (Portuguese custard tart) at the oldest cafe in Lisbon was a welcome treat. Cylced from the top of Eduardo VII Park down through the city and across to Belem where the tour ended and bikes were taken back by van. Many site to see around this area and bus, tram or metro all available to return you to the city.
Highly recommend this tour.
