Seeing Lisbon by beetle was great fun and about the only way to get around the narrow streets of the old town. Pedro was excellent, showing us he major sights and being a great conversationalist. As first time visitors we asked him what we should see and he took us through the old town and out to Belem. It was... More

Had a great 3 hour drive with Joâo. He was telling a lot about the city, and the sites we visited. Answered all the questions we had to him, about Lisbon, Portugal, Religion, Politics, etc. Recommended to all that what a private tour, in a special car!

Fantastic time and experience. The driver, Ricardo, was superb. An efficient driver, tour guide and idea man. He had tremendous recommendations on sites and ensured the best experience we have had in Portugal. Clever, witty and articulate. He expertly took us through the coastal towns and gave us a personal tour of Cascais, his hometown. A true treat with great... More

What better way than to explore the Lisbon countryside in a vintage Beetle convertible. Soak up the sun while driving through costal towns, stopping to shop, visiting a beautiful beach for lunch, and then up into the most beautiful Sintra mountainside. Palaces, Cathedrals among quaint Portuguese villages. My guide was knowledgeable and proud of his Portuguese heritage and gave me... More

Top notch customer service and such a friendly yet very professional attitude. Gonzalo was a superb problem solver! We toured Lisbon and Sintra with Ricardo in... More

My niece and I were picked up by our guide, Ricardo, in a green VW Beetle convertible at the front of our hotel. We instantly felt a connection with him as he listed our options for the morning. Along with the usual spots, Ricardo arranged for us to try the best custard tarts we've ever tasted! He customized our trip... More

We did a full day tour. Our driver and guide was Ricardo. Did this trip our first day in Lisbon to get the lay of the land for our days to follow. This was a fantastic experience and value. Our own convertible car and guide. Pickup was perfect near our apartment, and full day from Lisbon to Sintra. We highly... More

My boyfriend woke up grumpy at the thought of an 8 hour coach tour around Lisbon and Sintra as I had booked this VW trip as a surprise for him. He was not disappointed and what a great way to experience Lisbon ! Ricardo was enthusiastic and fun, tailoring the trip to our needs. We loved Cascais and Sintra and... More

Staying in Baixa, Rossio & Restauradores

Neighbourhood Profile
Baixa, Rossio & Restauradores
A pending candidate to become a World Heritage Site, Lisbon's downtown (the "Baixa Pombalina", or simply "Baixa") is a perfect example of anti-earthquake construction, having been rebuilt following the 1755 earthquake by the famous Marquês de Pombal (hence its name). Its offer is vast: restaurants and cafes in Rossio and Restauradores, outlets and shops in the Áurea, Augusta, Prata and other famous streets, the imponent Praça do Comércio and its Arch, the luxury shops along the Avenida da Liberdade, this is the beating heart of the city center. The Baixa also grants easy access to trains leading to Sintra, the trams that go around the Castle hill, old neighborhoods or even take you to Belém, and Lisbon's traditional restaurants and cafes. Considering a visit to the Fashion and Design Museum (free entrance) and don't forget to try the famous liquor, "ginjinha"!
