Detailed description

Lisbon sightseeing tour – go on a journey of discovery with children

Discovering Lisbon on a sightseeing tour with the whole family can a tough task for the little ones. Not this Lisbon city tour, which takes you trough the Baixa, Ribeira, Bica, Bairro Alto and Chiado districts. Fun is guaranteed! While you learn more about the city, the culture and the sights, your childreen will be engaged into learning while having fun. The local guide will lead you to the most important sights and you will learn more about Lisbon's history, the main events, the major visiting sites and the symbols of the city. This entertaining exploration tour will give you a good overview of the city centre.

The upper town (= Bairro Alto) captivates with its special charm in the narrow, winding and cobbled streets. Fortunately, the district was largely spared by the severe earthquake of 1755. The old houses and the authentic flair give an idea of how people lived here many hundreds of years ago. Today Bairro Alto is the pub district of the city. Bars, restaurants and pubs, where visitors can listen to the traditional Faro sounds, are lined up.

Since 1892 in Bairro Alto runs the historic funiculars railway, the Elevador da Bica. Here you and your children will board the funicular to reach the higher part of the district. The ride will be a great experience for youngsters and grownups, as it's a steep climb! The tram was put into service because the horse tram could not reach the higher areas of the city due to the gradient. From here you can see up to the castle "Castelo de São Jorge".

The sightseeing tour in Lisbon is child-friendly, informative and authentic. The city walk takes you further into the Baixa district (= lower town). Here life is raging, because you are in the historical centre of Lisbon. After the devastating earthquake, Baixa had to be completely rebuilt. Here you will find the famous triumphal arch "Arco da Rua Augusta", on which you can also climb, and the magnificent shopping street "Rua Augusta", and the incredible views to the Tagus river. This Lisbon walking tour is one of the activities for children, where even adults don't miss out – simply great!


Valid on the reserved day or for 12 months after date of purchase if no date has been selected. You will receive the tour operator's details with the purchased ticket. Attention: reservation is required! The reservation can be made through sunbonoo as part of the booking process or later by contacting the tour operator directly via phone or email.
