Caravel on Wheels

Make the most of your time in port by skipping the crowded docks for a chance to see the wonderful city of Lisbon in a unique and comfortable way onboard your Caravel.

You will board your transportation directly from a stop in front of the cruise ship terminal. This tour will take you on an adventure into two areas restricted to buses that cover the aspects of old neighborhoods such as Mouraria, Alfama, Chiado, Principe Real and Rato.

While underway you can explore an interactive map and watch videos through an individual tablet on your seat to learn about the city's colorful history. This video-guided tour is one of the few tours that will take you through the old neighborhoods of Lisbon. The tour is fully guided and offered in six languages: Portuguese, English, French, German, Spanish, and Italian.

Ride through a maze of narrow, cobbled streets in Alfama, the oldest district in the city. In Mouraria you will be in Lisbon's most culturally diverse neighborhood, while Chiado will greet you with its fashionable shops and cultural haunts.

Make your way through the charming area of Principe Real and visit the district of Belem. Belem is famous for the Tower of Belem and the Monastery of Jeronimos. Belem, the center of the Age of Discoveries contains monuments with over 500 years of history and is part of the Unesco World Heritage Sites. This is also where the Portuguese brave sailors departed to discover the word in the 15th century.

This tour is a perfect introduction for those who are pressed for time or just want to get a quick overview of Lisbon. You will make your fellow cruise passengers jealous when you show them the pictures of how you discovered Lisbon aboard your very own replica on wheels of the merchant sailing ships from the time of the discovery of the new world!

Excellent tour
February 20, 2020
The caravel picked us up within easy walking distance from the ship. It was not very well signposted, so a bit confusing to know if we were in the right place. The tour itself was excellent value for money, taking us around many points of interest with good information relayed to us, both on a small screen and by microphone by the operator. Would highly recommend it.

Lisbon memories

I was the only person on the tour and they still provided me with a wonderful experience in Lisbon. I had been to Lisbon before,but they took me to many favorite places. I’d do it again in a heartbeat.

Very In-Depth Tour of Lisbon
October 21, 2019
This was a great tour for us to do on our first day in Lisbon. We got to see so much of the city and take note of the places we wanted to visit later on. The only part that was a little frustrating is that the audio didn’t always come on at the right time, so when it was telling you about a certain building, you may have already passed it. However, what is covered in the audio is great and we were happy to be able to learn so much in one tour.

Great Intro to Lisbon
June 10, 2019
A pleasant introduction to Lisbon. They arrived at the pickup point, across from the cruise terminal, early. We happened to be the only couple booked that morning so it was more of a personal tour than a group tour. The guide and driver were courteous, professional and personable.
