WHAT CAN YOU EXPECT 

Meet your Around Lisbon  guide at your local Lisbon hotel for your day trip to Arrábida National Park and Sesimbra.

Hop aboard your air-conditioned minivan and cross the 25th of April Bridge (Ponte 25 de Abril), often compared to the Golden Gate bridge of San Francisco.

Drive about 40 minutes and arrive at the stunningly green Arrábida Natural Park. Traverse this park while learning from your Around Lisbon guide the history of this protected region. Continue to the golden sands of Albufeira Lagoon (Lagoa de Albufeira) and watch windsurfers and marine birds swirl in its waters.

Cruise onward to the beautiful cliffs of Cabo Espichel (Cape Espichel). Here, hop out to see Santuário de Nossa Senhora do Cabo Espichel, a 600-year-old religious site where pilgrims gathered to honor Our Lady of the Cape. Then, snap some clifftop panoramic shots of the stunning Atlantic coast.

Next, drive to the charming seaside town of Sesimbra, where local fishermen haul in fresh catches from the ocean. Stroll to the Moorish castle and discover its medieval roots. Afterward, stop for lunch (own expense) fresh fish in Sesimbra or nearby at the bay of Portinho da Arrábida.

Rejoin with your Around Lisbon and continue your afternoon soaking up the sun at Portinho da Arrábida, Galapos or Praia dos Coelhos, Arrábida’s hidden golden beaches.

Your day trip from Lisbon offers you other other options such as endulging your tastes at a local Azeitão village wine cellar (taste two varietals of Portuguese wine paired with local small cheese or pastries specialties) or visiting Palmela and Setúbal Castles.

After an adventurous day ride back to your Lisbon hotel where this tour ends.

Me and my husband took this day trip. I have to tell you that this trip was one of the best we ever had. Our guide Tiago was very accommodating which created unforgettable experience for us. We accomplished so much during the day and even visited the winery and wine tasting which was not initially included in this trip. we took our time to stop by at every place planned for this trip and stopped to have a swim on one of the most gorgeous beaches in Portugal. Finally Tiago took us to the Christ the King monument with the most breathtaking view. Needless to say, after the trip, we were overwhelmed with the beauty of this country and warmth of the people we met. Tiago is one of them: warm, and knowledgeable and easy going! I highly recommend this tour - the places we visited are not overwhelmed with tourists. You will have a chance to see and experience this beautiful country just for you...Enjoy

My husband and I took a private tour because we were with our 2-year-old and needed some flexibility. Raquel C. was our tour guide and I cannot recommend her enough. Her knowledge of Portugal's history as well as her knowledge of art history truly enriched our day. We came away with a greater understanding of the country and its lovely people. The private tours are not inexpensive and if we could have, we would have loved to see more of Portugal with Raquel as our guide. Definitely hope to do more tours with her the next time we visit!
