Electric Car Tour of Lisbon Old Town and Belém with GPS Audio Guide
The car ran very well. The GPS operated correctly. Our main contact was extremely kind and helpful, even though we were running late arriving and leaving. He even helped me find a belt when I realized I forgot mine at home! Extremely good experience and highly recommended, as long as you’re comfortable driving on the hilly cobblestone streets of Lisbon.

Thomas was a great guide. He is extremely knowledgeable and passionate about Lisbon and its people even though he's French. We found out so much more from him than any guide book could have told us regarding the history of Lisbon and the culture of the city. This was no boring history lecture - he bought history to life. He was also very safety conscious and regularly checked we were ok on the bikes. A thoroughly enjoyable afternoon!

Lisbon: Belém Guided Tour
Fred was the best guy. He really made history so interesting and I was asking so many questions, which he as answered with passion. My only wish was that during thewinter hours of the public sites that the tour could start at 1 so we can continue to explore Belem after it concluded Definitely do this tour

Fantastic! Miguel was a lot of fun as well as patient with a cyclist who wasn’t very experienced. I loved the evokes and am planning on hiring Miguel again for a separate tour.

How to Get There

Belem Tower is located in the Belem district of Lisbon, about four miles (six kilometers) west of the city center. The easiest way to get there is by tram—take the No. 15 from Praca da Figueira in central Lisbon toward Alges, and get off at Mosteiro dos Jeronimos (one stop beyond Belem). From there, it’s a short walk through the monastery gardens to the riverfront park, where you will be able to see the tower.

When to Get There

Belem Tower is open all year round but it can get crowded during the peak summer months, so you may want to arrive early (and opt for a weekday visit if possible). For the most atmospheric photo opportunities, visit at sunset or sunrise to admire the dramatic facade.
