Lisbon’s oldest neighbourhood and the most charming one, it’s considered the historic soul of Lisbon and its steep, cobblestoned lanes stand just as they were in medieval times. This area is best known for its fado houses and the great festivities of Lisbon which honors “Santo António” (St. Anthony) during the month of June, luring thousands of people into the streets. This neighbourhood resisted to the terrible earthquake of 1755 and this is one of the main reasons that contributed to the preservation of its authenticity. This charming area retains some of the Moorish atmosphere with its alleys, staircases and clothes drying on the windows.

Our guide Luis was very informative, kept us going at a good pace but was always considerate of safety, and my husband and I thoroughly enjoyed the tour. We only had a day in Lisbon so it was a great way to get orientated and see a lot of the old town and moorish area of Lisbon, whilst learning about some of the history of this fascinating city.

Laurencio (hope I spelled that right) was a very patient and fabulous guide. Quick review how to work the bikes and we were off. With Lisbon having so many hills the electric bike was a treat. Wonderful areas taken to with fabulous views and of course having an informative guide essential. Small group was also a bonus. Would really recommend this experience 😀

I smiled the whole time. If you are at all adventurous, this is a must! Excellent value. Our guide was like a historian and stopped while we went into some churches, etc. So much better than walking in this city of Lisbon. Best decision of whole cruise.Be sure you have a map to get to office before you leave ship if yo are walking to this address. About five block walk from my ship, but enjoyable if you have time to walk to it. Otherwise get a ride. Don't miss this tour..fabulous...

Our family LOVED this tour! We had the best time going up and down the hills of Lisbon on this tour. My chain fell off a few times and one of our bikes ran out before the end but we're an adventure loving family so, all was good! Our tour guide James was amazing too! Definitely recommend--now my husband wants and electric bike!

The electric bike made it easy to bike Lisbon. The guide was helpful and informative. Highly recommend the tour

Outstanding tour of the Chiado, Alfama and Bairro Alto districts. Our guide, Antonio and his assistant Anna were very good. The electric bikes are easy to manage and are very helpful getting up the hills. The tool was about 2 hours w/ a few stops for exploration and picture taking along the way. The downside of this tour is that there is no ability requirement and we had a bunch of people that were not very competent on two wheels. So, I recommend you try and stay as close to the front behind the tour guide as to avoid the carnage that will be occurring behind you.

This bike tour was one of our highlights of our stay in Lisbon. Joao and Rita were excellent guides. They possess a lot of knowledge about the history of Portugal and were very informative, yet also made for a very fun ride. The electric bikes made it very easy to ride up the many hills in Lisbon. I would take this tour again.

Well organized and very helpful, e-bikes had a lot of juice/power. were able to negotiate really steep sections with relative ease. thankfully had 2 guides who rode Lisbon style and stop us/ or traffic for safety. Very entertaining and interactive narration and well informed about history.
