We think this is a truly stand-out Lisbon sightseeing tour, one of the best around and ideal for cruise passengers too, with flexible timings. You’ll enjoy superb views over the Tagus river as you cross the Vasco da Gama bridge (at 17km the longest in Europe) and head toward the Palmela Castle Tower for an outstanding photo opportunity. Then you’ll drive down through the renowned Arrabida wine region, pausing again at an excellent viewpoint located at the highest section of the Arrabida Nature Park. Arriving in Sesimbra, a charming little fishing village, you can purchase lunch (not included in experience price) before a sumptuous wine tasting session at a cellar that has been producing for almost 200 years.
This is a fantastic tour for those who would like to see a different side of Lisbon and the surrounding region. You can enjoy a traditional fisherman’s lunch in Sesimbra, then walk along the beach with the sand in your toes afterwards. At the family-owned wine cellar, you can learn how techniques and values dating back to 1834 feed through into 21st century wine production. And, to finish the tour in style, before returning over the 25 Abril bridge you’ll make a stop at a must-see when in Lisbon, the Cristo Rei (Christ the Redeemer) statue. At sunset, Lisbon turns a beautiful shade of pink. This is without doubt one of Europe’s most entrancing cities to see at dusk.
