Why Try The City Sightseeing Lisbon Bus Tour?
The City Sightseeing Lisbon hop-on hop-off bus tour provides audio commentary in 8 different languages so virtually everyone can hear the rich history behind the city's most iconic landmarks. Add to this the open-top design of the buses and you have the perfect platform on which to bask in the sun, feel the gentle wind in your hair and take in the sights. All tickets last for 24-hrs which means great sightseeing tour value!
This is a hop-on hop-off service so you can jump off at any stop on the two tour routes and do your own explorations on foot. To rejoin the buses simply head over to another stop and await the next bus. Here are just some of the top locations you can visit on the tour bus:

The red route takes you out to the west end and remains close to the beautiful Atlantic shoreline for most of the way. The highlights you'll see along the way include the Belém Tower, the Estrela Gardens and the Campo Pequeno bull ring.
