Lisbon City Sightseeing Hop On Hop Off Bus

Visit one of the oldest cities in the world, likely founded over 3,000 years ago. It emerged as a nation state in the early 12th century. On each of the 2 routes, you can discover and explore at your own leisure the city's key sights, museums, gardens and attractions. Lisbon, a city of contrasts, offers so much to discover and surprise and still maintains the marks of its early history. It is heralded as one of the most beautiful capitals of Europe.

Your hop on - hop off bus tour allows you to explore the city on two routes with 33 stops. The stops are located around the city and enable you to hop on and off at your convenience with a ticket valid for 24 hours. There are so many attractions in Lisbon such as Jeronimos Monastery, built by the King D. Manuel I designed in Manueline architectural style and Torre de Belem, which are both classified by UNESCO as World Heritage Sites. Take a stroll through the many squares including the Praca do Municipio, Praca do Comercio and the Praca do Rossio. Pay a visit to the Museu do Oriente, Museu do Azulejo or Museu de Arte Antiga. Wander through the beautiful gardens at the Jardim da Astrela or the Jardim do Principe Real. If you appreciate the animal kingdom, perhaps you would like to spend time at the Oceanario de Lisboa or the Jardim Zoologico. Marvel at the city's cathedrals, mosques, and the exhibits in the Calouste Gulbenkian. And don't miss the renowned Palacio de Belem.

For those customers interested in private tours, we offer many outstanding excursions that allow you to travel with your party alone and, in many cases, to fully customize your tour. Search for "Private Tours" if you are interested in this experience. Our "Scenic" tours provide up close and personal access to some of the most spectacular natural environments on Earth from majestic glaciers in Alaska to spectacular reefs in the Caribbean. Our "Cultural" tours allow customers to experience local customs, entertainment and culinary delights ranging from tribal dances in Alaska to an outstanding local meal in Santorini, Greece. Our "Active" tours offer a multitude of exciting and adventurous ways to experience our destinations. Our customers can kayak the turquoise waters of the Caribbean, hike to a spectacular waterfall in Hawaii, or bicycle through quaint villages in France.
