Do you want to make a tour in Lisbon? Said to be built on 7 hills, Lisbon is an amphitheatre that looks down onto the Tagus, the river it has always depended on. There's history oozing out of its romantic avenues, old Moorish quarters, Roman underpinnings and Manueline, Baroque and Gothic monuments, off-set by some of the boldest modern buildings by local and international architects.

This is a cosmopolitan centre of commerce that will appeal to your senses and to your gourmet instincts. It is a palette of colors where the sun shines the whole year round (almost!).

I was the only english speaking person on the tour (everyone else was French) - so it was bi-lingual. I probably wouldn’t have booked on the tour if I knew it would be like that, as it made visiting sights slower and I hardly got a chance to ask any questions. Tina was a good tour guide but could have... More

The ticket includes also tickets to funiculars, and as we were staying in VIP Eden aparthotel on Praca dos Restauradores, we usea Gloria funicular almost daily, to go up to... More

The review has 2 stars as I don't want some of the aspects to be too negative. BUT we booked on line in advance. Confirmation had very little information about where to get the maps, vouchers etc . So I emailed Trivago who got a response from Yellow Bus tours stating that we should pick up any one of the... More

The buses and the routes are ok, but the English tour information did not match the route. Plus had to wait long time at the bus stops and watch lots of Red Buses (the other and better) option, pass by, one stop waited 30 min and at another 45 min and the rep kept telling us and other people bus...

Get one of the red buses. There are hardly any buses so you have to wait for ages and when they do come they're full. We struggled to find anywhere to plug in the audioguide.

We were really looking forward to the Tagus tour and had a whole day planned out using it. We paid for our tickets at the kiosk with their own representative (the lady seemed frustrated she had to put her paper down to take our money), then were told where the nearest stop was to get the bus from. Having waited... More

Don't do it. Do the red one. Buses are few and far between and when they do come they are full!! Spend more time waiting on them whilst the red buses pass you with plenty of room on board.

+ Prices low (30€ for 48h, bus and tram) + Good routes - very few information, we did the chill out free walking tour the day before and there was so much more important and interesting information that could have been told on the bus tour - bus drivers did not know whether the museums were opened or not -...

Staying in Baixa, Rossio & Restauradores

Neighbourhood Profile
Baixa, Rossio & Restauradores
A pending candidate to become a World Heritage Site, Lisbon's downtown (the "Baixa Pombalina", or simply "Baixa") is a perfect example of anti-earthquake construction, having been rebuilt following the 1755 earthquake by the famous Marquês de Pombal (hence its name). Its offer is vast: restaurants and cafes in Rossio and Restauradores, outlets and shops in the Áurea, Augusta, Prata and other famous streets, the imponent Praça do Comércio and its Arch, the luxury shops along the Avenida da Liberdade, this is the beating heart of the city center. The Baixa also grants easy access to trains leading to Sintra, the trams that go around the Castle hill, old neighborhoods or even take you to Belém, and Lisbon's traditional restaurants and cafes. Considering a visit to the Fashion and Design Museum (free entrance) and don't forget to try the famous liquor, "ginjinha"!
