Our passion and love for what we do is what maintains our organization as one of the best activities to do in any of the cities in which we operate. We believe that it is important for us to love and enjoy what we do, so we can reflect and transmit that to all our visitors. Our tours are a perfect mix of history, stories, legends and our little secrets. We are also always full of ideas for your dinner, best waffle, fun bars and whatever else you might be interested in!

About the tour

We will leave the meeting point to go to the popular neighborhood of Belém, located on the banks of the Tagus. Upon arrival we will receive the statues of sailors, who greet locals and tourists from the Monument to the Discoveries. As we walk along the bank of the Tagus we will learn about events that have marked the history of the city, such as the maritime route of spices to India, devised by John II of Portugal. We will continue our walk to the Empire Square, and there we will discover the Jeronimos Monastery, which stands as a palace in the center of Belém. Did you know that it was built to commemorate the return of India from Vasco de Gama? We will return to the Tagus to see closely one of the most representative symbols of Lisbon: the Belém Tower. Built for military purposes, this tower is one of the best examples of Manueline architecture. Your photos here will look like postcards! And how could it be otherwise, we will finish our tour in one of the most typical bakeries in the neighborhood. There we can get to know Belém through its more traditional flavor tasting Belém's cakes, also called cream cupcakes.
