Lisbon guided sightseeing tours

Jump to last reply

I'm spending Christmas week in Lisbon and have been researching guided tours without much success.

I will be traveling alone and have concerns about all the hills, so I was hoping to find a half day (or even full day) tour of the city - something with a bus/minivan with limited walking would be ideal. I'm middle-aged with bad knees, so a three hour walking tour would not be for me.

All I seem to be finding are either private tours (which are very expensive for a solo traveler), walking tours (which I think would be too strenuous for me) or the hop-on, hop-off buses that all seem to have dismal reviews. The few options I found don't seem to have any offerings the days I'm looking for (I do realize that being there Christmas week limits my options).

I know I can explore the city myself with a Viva Viagem card but I always find that a guided tour enhances the experience for me.

Does anyone have any suggestions or recommendations? I was thinking that despite all my research, maybe there's something I'm missing. I've traveled extensively on my own and don't recall ever finding a city where I couldn't book a guided bus tour.

Thank you in advance for any advice.
