"Travel Like A Local"
Welcome To Lisbon Riders
More than a tour company, we share a passion, called Lisbon. Prepare yourself for riding around the best places the city has to offer and to be an explorer of its secrets. Nothing is ever predictable with us.
After we pick you up, we will go back to XVI century to discover together all of the adventures of the brave Portuguese navigators. You’ll have the opportunity to appreciate different monuments, but you can’t miss out on the magnificent monastery classified by UNESCO that was built to celebrate discovery of a sea route to India in 1498 by Vasco da Gama (Monastery of Jeronimos; read more here); and of course, the most well keep secret of the Portuguese pastry, the Pasteis de Belem. There is a local ritual to eating these delicacies that we will share with you. Click here to continue reading the Lisbon Tour itinerary.
Sintra & Cascais
Departing from Lisbon, we will head towards the rippling and dewy Sintra. We will start the day by visiting the amazing Pena Palace (read more here). The palace's history started in the Middle Ages when a chapel dedicated to Our Lady of Pena was built on the top of the hill above Sintra. According to the tradition, construction occurred after an apparition of the Virgin Mary, though it was sadly all but ruined in the devastating earthquake of 1755. The current palace dates back to 1839, when King Ferdinand II bought the ruins of the Hieronymite Monastery of Our Lady of Pena and started to adapt it for use as a residence according to his romantic taste.

Setúbal wine tasting
From Lisbon we will cross the Tagus River south by passing the Portuguese Golden Gate Bridge, formally called the Salazar Bridge during the fascist dictatorship. At the end of the bridge you will have the opportunity to see how big the statue of Christ is (it was erected in 1959 to thank God for sparing Portugal from the horrors of World War II)!
We will head south to the wine region of Azeitao. Here you will visit the oldest cellar of the region, which has been in the same family for more than 7 generations. Click here to continue reading the Setúbal wine tasting itinerary.
Since Portugal is a very beautiful country, with a vast variety of landscapes to enjoy and see aside from Lisbon, we invite you to explore the central-west of Portugal. We will start in Fatima, a town visited by 6 million people every year, where it is said that the Virgin Mary appeared to three children – Lúcia (10 years old), Francisco (9 years old) and Jacinta (7 years old) – every single month from May 13th, 1917 until October 13th, 1917. On the last appearance, the Virgin Mary had a prophetic message that would be given to the world by these three shepherd children (‘pastorinhos’) – later on.

Évora & Monsaraz
From Lisbon we will head towards Monsaraz, which is one of the best kept secrets in Portugal. This trip takes about 2 hours, but we will make a stop in the middle of the way in the town of Montemor-o-Novo to stretch our legs and to observe the ancient castle, as well as to enjoy the amazing view of the Alentejo region’s landscape. After this, it is time to continue our journey to the town of Monsaraz, right next to the Spanish border. It was conquered to the Muslims in the 12th century and worked for many centuries as fortress to keep the Spaniards away from Portugal. Nowadays, there are just 700 inhabitants, but is a charming walled village with a looming castle at its edge. Click here to continue reading the Évora & Monsaraz itinerary.
