Arrabida and Sesimbra Small-Group Day Trip from Lisbon with Wine Tasting

Select Date and Travellers
2 travellers
    What to Expect
    Meet your guide in central Lisbon for your Arrabida and Sesimbra small-group guided day trip. Hop aboard your air-conditioned minivan and drive off. Cruise along the Vasco da Gama Bridge, the longest bridge in Europe spanning 11 miles (17 km) over the Tagus River. Hear how it was developed for the 1998 Lisbon Universal Exposition on your way to visit stunning Pamela Castle. From the castle, savor a wine tasting of four delectable wines at a local winery.

    Next, head to the northern shore of the Sado River and discover the beauty of Arrabida Natural Park. Climb to the tallest peak at 1,640 feet (500 meters) and gaze over the verdant park towards the Atlantic and the beaches below. Then, stop for a fresh seafood lunch (own expense) in the charming fishing town of Sesimbra. Spend more free time strolling along lively streets or continue for a walk along golden beaches.

    Alongside your guide, explore one of Portugal’s oldest wineries, Casa Museu Jose Maria da Fonseca. After learning about wine production you’re ready for a wine tasting. Enjoy two regional wines with delicious tastes and aromatic bodies as you relax on the property.

    Bust out your camera one more time as you stopover at Cristo Rei Sanctuary, a shrine dedicated to the Sacred Heart of Jesus Christ which was inaugurated in 1959. Then, capture a panoramic view of Lisbon from afar. Finally, hop aboard your minivan and return to central Lisbon where your tour ends.

    We really enjoyed the day trip. The bus can hold 8 but on our trip we only had 7 which made the seating arrangements easier. The guide was really nice and she offered enough info without being too much and always offered to take photos...More

    Recommend very much . The only reason I removed a star was because our tour was English. 8 of us spoke English and after waiting 30 minutes, over 30 Dutch came with a translator which more than doubled our tour time .

    This was a great wine-tasting experience. Miguel had a lot of insight. The trip combined great locations, views and education about wine. Best of two worlds. The group was small and kept it still very personal. Enjoyed it more than a private tour.
