Stimulating, humorous guided tour through a great city...

Personal questions were always answered and own wishes were asked from the beginning and taken seriously. Great background knowledge was passed on humorously and loosely and we were all around satisfied and enthusiastic.

We were more than satisfied. Our guide, Thomas, is a very well read, very well informed and extraordinarily nice tour guide. The tour was interesting, entertaining and smart. The 3.5 hours (1/2 hour longer than booked) flew by and were the right amount of time to get in the mood for our short break in Lisbon. Highly recommended. Top

Altogether a very nice tour through the old town of Lisbon. Our group of 9 people was alone, so everything was very individual. Thomas is a perfect guide who has shown us things you probably won't find in any travel guide. And this with a well-founded historical knowledge and a charming manner.

That was a perfect tour. We were a group of 11 people and the guide picked us up directly at the hotel. Everyone was enthusiastic about the tour.

great

It was a very nice individual tour through the highlights of Lisbon. The tour with Thomas has given us information and insights that we would not have otherwise perceived. The Chiado has also become the most beautiful area for us. The tour is highly recommended.

The guide has explained everything in a great way and interspersed personal anecdotes. Highly recommended!

We travelled with Aida to Lisbon and thus had less time to get to know Lisbon than many others

We were completely enthusiastic about the tour, which was individually tailored to us, and it had a long after-effect and cast a spell over us

We have done many city tours, but never one so unique.

We did not feel treated as typical tourists but as friends from Germany. We have been allowed to get to know so many small secret places, individual little things, anecdotes and also historical things.

This city tour was something very special and we strongly recommend that everyone book a city tour with Grantours Portugal

Dear Thomas, once again we would like to say THANK YOU

Best regards Friends from Germany :-)

Very good care. Got a great impression about Lisbon. Anytime again

Our guide Thomas was a very friendly and knowledgeable German, who has been living in Lisbon for several years and tells us about the city in a very interesting, funny and entertaining way. The tour was 3 hours long, but we all found it a pity that it was already over. We could have easily listened to him for another three hours. We were 18 colleagues and the tour was just for us. The next time we visit Lisbon, we will certainly contact him again.

great

PERFEKT, Thomas has a lot of background knowledge and we have experienced and seen a lot. And although in the end there were only two of us registered, the tour nevertheless took place and lasted longer than described.

Your experience

Highlights

  • See the Chiado quarter over the Barrio Alto, the squares of Restauradores and Rossio and walk over the famous Rua Augusta to the Praca do Comercio
  • Optimal to get a first impression of the history and structure of the city of Lisbon

Description

On this tour you will learn the history of Portugal and its capital Lisbon. You will get to know the historical quarters, starting with the Chiado quarter.

The tour starts at Largo de Cameõs and leads to Chiado Square. From there the route passes the oldest bookshop in the world, on the way you will often see that Lisbon is a city with many superlatives. This can also be seen at Largo do Carmo with the remarkable Carmelite monastery or on the platform of the elevator Sta. Justa with the famous panoramic view.

From Chiado, with the appropriate information, you then go down a picturesque staircase to the lower town, to the squares Rossio and Restauradores. Learn about the significance of the monuments and discover hidden places with culinary and cultural highlights in the richly decorated houses around these squares. After a look into a breathtaking church and discoveries of a Moorish nature (as in a thousand and one nights), the path leads you through the richly decorated main street of Lisbon's old city, the Rua Augusta. Equipped with the most important information about the great earthquake of 1755, you reach the Praça do Comércio with its elegant monumental buildings and the popular "triumphal arch".

Breathe in millennia of history on this tour - from the historic market for exotic spices to the assassination of King Carlos and his son, the heir to the throne, in 1908 and the Carnation Revolution in 1974.

The tour ends at the equestrian statue of King José I, where you will get valuable information about typical restaurants, trendy places and interesting places.
