A tour around Lisbon on a vintage VW Beetle. Convertible. Is there anything else to say?
This tour will give you a complete perspective of Lisbon, from the creative buzz in its historic center to the most quiet and relaxing side of the town.
Lisbon is a capital full of energy with its particular light, unique for its cross between the antique and the contemporary, the picturesque view over its roofs, the clothes drying decorating the windows and the multiculturalism that makes it even more special.
You’ll discover Lisbon through the lens of some of our city lovers who designed this experience in order to make you fall in love. Now imagine the sun, the wind on your face, the river by your side and you inside an iconic Beetle with a legendary design, robustness and cult status.
