It was a private tour for all practical reasons with me and my friend. Was easy to find the guide on a sunday. They had some choice of bikes and I picked one similar to the Uber Jump bike. The guide Pedro (?) was super nice guy, very knowledgeable and gave his personal opnions and inside scoop on things as well as the history. It is a nice ride to Belem and the bridge and the monastery. Less cultural than the alfama tour but he answered all my questions, was super friendly, hooked me up with Tapas, brought some spare raincoats incase it rained (how nice is that?) Overall, fantastic guide. The Belem tour includes the famous Pastel de Nata and is more of a relaxed ride along the water, a bit different from the Hill tours.
This is a great activity for those looking to learn about the history of Lisbon and do an easy & enjoyable bike ride at the same time. My guide Pedro was knowledgeable and engaging. The ride along the river was quite easy with the electric bikes, which took no time at all to get used to.
What a fantastic way to experience Lisbon and in particular the area around Belem. We learnt about the history, about the food and the people of Lisbon through the centuries. Can’t recommend it more highly!
Thanks to Daniel (our guide) and Margarita (novice guide) for a wonderful bike trip along the shore on the Tagos river to Belem. Could not have gone better.
Xzavior was excellent. Very very knowledgable and made us feel so comfortable as my wife is not really riding on the streets.
