Overview Location: Lisbon, Portugal
Choose from a half- or full-day tour, and then meet your private guide at the pier after your ship pulls into port. Hop into an air-conditioned vehicle and travel in style to the heart of the city.

On this tour, enjoy a flexible itinerary that shows you the key sights as well as the city's hidden gems. If you have any particular preferences about what you wish to see and do, make them known to your guide, who will customize the schedule to suit your interests.

Perhaps start your tour at the beautiful Belém district to learn about the Age of Discoveries. Visit sights from the days when Portugal was one of Europe’s richest power, such as Belém Tower and Monastery of St Jerome.

Then, maybe head into the bohemian Bairro Alto district to browse the trendy shops. Or choose to explore Rossio Square, a central plaza that’s adorned with beautiful fountains. After, venture to the elevated viewpoint of Portas do Sol to admire aerial views of the sloping Alfama district and River Tagus. From there, descend down the steep streets of Alfama. Dating back to Moorish times, Alfama is the oldest district in Lisbon and is known for its unique architecture and beautiful tile panels.

Hungry? Take a break and let your guide suggest the best spots to taste authentic local cuisine (own expense), such as the delicious Portuguese pastry, pastel de nata (egg tart). Check out artistic and ecclesial treasures inside the Lisbon Cathedral (Sé de Lisboa), get familiar with traditional Portuguese music at the Fado Museum (own expense) or stroll along the shaded path of the leafy Príncipe Real Garden.

At the end of your full-day or half-day tour, return to port in your private vehicle and continue on with your cruise.
