2-hour Lisbon Highlights Private Tour

Make the most out of your visit and discover Lisbon's main attractions with your private tour guide

ABOUT THE 2-hour Lisbon Highlights Private Tour

This 2-hour private tour is the perfect introduction to Lisbon and a great way to orientate yourself in the city. Your local private tour guide will take you to must-see spots such as Baixa Pombalina and Rossio Square, as well as walking you through crucial historical events such as the Salazar dictatorship.


Discover Lisbon, Portugal’s colourful coastal capital

Recent years have seen Lisbon, and Portugal in a broader sense, explode in terms of being a cultural capital. Some cite the smiling population and white sandy beaches for its entry into vogue, while others attribute it to the quaint Moorish architecture and colorful castles.

Whatever it is that makes a travel destination a success story, Lisbon has it in spades - and with a bang for your buck well exceeding that of neighbouring European destinations, you are sure to leave this 2-hour private tour as one of Lisbon’s countless advocates.

We will introduce you to Europe’s new ‘capital of cool’, covering topics as varied as the Portuguese Inquisition and the Salazar dictatorship, to the great earthquake of 1755, and everything in between. We will take you to Baixa Pombalina, Chiado, Rossio Square, the Carmo Convent and much more!

See Lisbon up-close

If you are popping into Lisbon for a quick trip with a group of friends, family, colleagues or other travellers, then make the most out of your stay by booking a private tour that fits your schedule!

Lisbon is a city that appeals to a variety of people for a variety of reasons - if you’d like added time or flexibility, consider upgrading to the 3-hour Private City Tour
