Get ready for a laid-back tour along the beautiful Tagus River on the most charming vintage bicycles in Lisbon! Our mission is to provide a wonderful tour to Belém where you will find a set of iconic monuments related to the Discoveries.

You will be escorted by our attentive guides who will do their utmost so you fall in love with all the details of this tour as you hear fantastic stories about the great Age of Discoveries and observe some iconic sights.

Anyone interested in History and aware of the importance of the Portuguese Discoveries will fall in love with Belém, where everything is magnificent, secular and sacred. It was from this area that Portuguese explorers embarked on their dangerous and ambitious expeditions, turning Portugal into the first global empire.

We have prepared a fascinating circuit that pass by several historical monuments, such as the Jeronimos Monastery (UNESCO World Heritage Site, the “jewel” of Manueline architecture); Belém Tower (one of the most distinguished examples of the architecture of King Manuel I’s reign); the Monument to the Discoveries.

This is one of the most enjoyable walks in our city, given the context and scenery in which it takes place; the perfect combination of tranquillity, harmony and landscape, combined with the bustle of the riverside filled with terraces, musicians, sportsmen and artists who enjoy Lisbon here at its best.
