About the Tour

We will walk though Ribeira das Naus to know more about the Tagus river, the famous bridges (Vasco de Gama Bridge and 25th of April Bridge) and the stunning statue Cristo Rei. Then we will take a train to Belém neighbourhood (7 kilometers from city center).

Once in Belém we will discover the magnificent Afonso Albuquerque Square and the old Royal Palace, now Palace of the Republic.

You should know that is a tour with a sweet touch, where the custard tarts of Belém are also protagonists, so we will have a break for you to taste it. And then, we will stop by the Jeronimos Monastery, so you can be fascinated by it’s elegance and majesty of the Manuelino Art.

We will dig deeper into the history of the Age of Discoveries and with the help of “Rosa dos Ventos”, the Rose of the Winds we will get to know the power that the once largest Empire on the planet had. And of course we will go to the tower of Belém, a World Heritage site, to get into the clothes of the sailors that were willing to launch themselves into the unknown dark sea to discover and open new commercial sea routes.

Legends, betrayals, conquests and history awaits! Would you like to join?

Meeting point: Open in Google Maps

How to find me: You can find us in Comercio Square (Praça do Comércio). Metro station Terreiro do Paço (Blue line). We will be in the square in front of the Arch of Rua Augusta with the LIGHT BLUE UMBRELLA

Terrible tour-poor guide very limited and biased information. Most of the time spent commuting to belem or buying pasteis

Response from Blue Emotion Tours
First of all thank you for your comment. Everything helps us to continue growing. Secondly, the journey from Lisbon to Belem is 7 minutes and the stop to buy cakes is 10 minutes. The tour lasts a total of 2 hours and a half, so no, most of the time we spend explaining the history of this magnificent place. We are sorry that the guide did not like you, but he is a great professional as other comments on this page show.

Die Tour in Belem war sehr interessant. So hatte man mal die Gelegenheit den etwas abgelegeneren Teil Lissabons kennen zu lernen. Leider waren am Montag viele Museen geschlossen, so dass man diese nicht auch noch von Innen (nach der Tour) besichtigen konnte, wenn man schon mal in der Gegend ist. Die Pastel de Belem waren köstlich (mussten selbst bezahlt werden).

We have had a great time with João, introducing us to th Belém district. He has a great sense of humour explaining all about the historical parts, while he was kind enough to take us to try some pasteis de nata. Would definitely recommend!
