Full description

Discover three amazing Portuguese cities: Porto, Nazaré, and Óbidos with a bus sightseeing tour from Lisbon. Immerse yourself in the rich heritage of Portugal and feel inspired by the architecture, history, and culture of these beautiful cities. Get comfortable in an air-conditioned vehicle as you start your journey toward the town of Óbidos, where we will start with a guided tour accompanied by a local guide. Completely surrounded by ancient walls and preserving all its medieval charm, Óbidos is one of the most famous and visited places in Portugal, and a must-see in the surroundings of Lisbon. The narrow cobbled streets that can be seen in Óbidos will immediately transport you to a medieval atmosphere.

These streets are home to perfectly preserved old houses, historic buildings, and important monuments. Dominating the historic center in the highest part of the village, visit the Castle of Óbidos, which is declared one of the 7 wonders of Portugal. Start at the village main gate, and discover the amazing narrow streets outside of the beaten track. Visit the secret Jewish neighborhood and its white-painted houses with some great spots to take pictures. Walk along Rua Dereita, the most famous street, full of stores and traditional restaurants, and get to the castle of Óbidos.

It was built in the 12th-century, although it has Roman constructions in its beginnings. It can be said that it is one of the best preserved and largest fortresses of the country, being listed as one of the Seven Wonders of Portugal. From there, you will clearly see the great wall of Óbidos, another of the town’s great symbols. Continue the trip heading to possibly the most famous fishing town in Portugal, Nazaré, where you will visit the Forte de Sao Miguel. This site has become world-famous for the giant wave that hits its coast every winter and attracts lots of surfers from all over the world.

Then, walk through O Sitio, where the famous streets present a collection of religious buildings and are a hugely popular site for pilgrims from all around the globe. Hike your way up to the summit, where you'll find medieval fortifications, 17th-century churches, and modern shrines.

Wander the courtyards and plazas surrounded by ornate structures, basilicas, and statues. Next, head to Oporto, the last stop of the day. First you will have 1h to have a typical Portuguese lunch on your own to regain energy, and then, the visit will start. A vibrant 1.5-hour walking tour, where you will admire the stunning Old Town on the picturesque Douro River, complete with six bridges, is a UNESCO World Heritage Site, Igreja Carmen, Estação São Bento, Igreja São Francisco and Ponte Don Luis. At the end of your tour, you will return to the center of Lisbon and your guide will recommend things to do during the rest of your stay.

The tour was great, especially if you have a short time in Lisbon and want to see several things/cities, O'bidos was especially beautiful. Our guide Flavio, in addition to being punctual and very nice, explained everything to us great and left us some free time to explore on our own and made good recommendations for eating in Porto. Also the trip was made more pleasant thanks to our driver Arthur,. also super friendly. We enjoyed a lot.

First, the good: 1. Our guide, Alberto, was both informative & entertaining, with a quirky sense of humour which added greatly to the whole experience. 2. We were on time, great in a crowd of 19 people. As always, there was one perennially late person, but Alberto was strict about timing, so she got left behind on the last tour (she met us at the bus later). So full marks for that. Now, the not-so-good: 1. We got to Porto at 2 pm with a strict one-hour break for lunch. But most places in the area we were dropped off at were either closed, closing, or super-full! We wasted 20 min looking for a resto, another 20 min waiting for the food, and had to bolt the meal in 20 min. Not ideal. Suggestion: do Nazare after Porto, so we get there at a decent hour; or if that’s not logistically possible, drop Nazare altogether, so we get more time in Obidos and Porto. 2. Make time (15 min!) to look for port wine in Porto! Defeats the whole purpose, if not, surely? But all in all, a worthwhile trip!
