Discover Lisbon by land and water on an amphibious tour that explores historic neighborhoods and the Tagus River. Seeing Lisbon by amphibious vehicle means you have unobstructed views of riverside landmarks, including the Belem Tower and the Monument to the Discoveries, while getting a great overview of the city’s main attractions.
  • See key neighborhoods in historic Lisbon
  • Fun, family-friendly alternative to traditional tours
  • Live narration to help bring the city’s landmarks to life
  • Convenient departure times throughout the day
What to Expect
Make your way to the docks, where you board an amphibious tour bus and set out through the city. The route is carefully designed to take in main sites, including Cais do Sodre, Praça do Comercio, Rossio, and Avenida da Liberdade, a bustling thoroughfare lined with lush gardens. From there, pass the Marques de Pombal, Largo do Rato, and Jardim da Estrela on your way into the riverside neighborhood of Belem, entering the water at Doca do Bom Sucesso, a former naval dock in the heart of the city. Once in the water, enjoy great views of the Lisbon waterfront on your way to the Monument of the Discoveries and Belem Tower, part of a gorgeous UNESCO World Heritage Site with centuries of history. The tour concludes at the original departure point, close to top attractions and sights.
