About
Discover one of the most majestic and popular areas of the Lisbon waterfront during this 3-hour private walking tour. This is the place where the famous world explorers set off on voyages of discovery in the 15th century, but also where Portugal hosted the World Exhibition in 1940. Full of history and charm, Belém is the perfect neighborhood to stroll around on foot. Visit the Square of the Empire, the famous Monument of the Discoveries, and the the exotic "Portuguese House for the Colonies.” In the end you will certainly gain a completely different image of Lisbon.

Luis was very good prepared and explained a lot of things, especially historical knowledge. It was quite interesting an good to understand Portuguese history. From the restaurant recommendation at the end we expected more - well, food and prices were quite good, but it was too far away from Belem and we would have loved to have something with view to the river. So better leave that out.

Hi Andreas I'm glad you enjoyed the tour and the lunch. I'm sorry about the 'extra' walk to the restaurant, but remember we ended the tour by The Belém Tour, where there are no obvious nearby options to eat and drink. I hope to see you soon in Lisbon. Luís

Enjoyed the three hours. Excellent overview of the changes to the area and the history of Lisbon. Great context for how Lisbon/Belem has changed over time. Luis was helpful tailoring the tour to our interests and at the end finished with a coffee and some advise for other parts of our trip in Portugal.
