There are never two tuk-tuk rides alike, especially in Lisbon where each corner is different and unique.

The tuk-tuk operator Sevenspots invites you to pick from seven different tours to explore the city’s seven hills. Come aboard and experience all the fun, while enjoying a 360º view over Lisbon’s most amazing spots!

Partners Lourenço Pestana, Pedro Sotero, and Pedro Ferreira say that Sevenspots tuk-tuks are not only fun and friendly, but also electric.

For starters, it is a lot of fun to visit Lisbon on an open-air vehicle by Cristiano Ronaldo’s hotel, with a soccer-themed decor (check out that green artificial grass flooring!)

It is a friendly mean of transportation, as each tuk-tuk seats up to six people comfortably and features multilingual and experienced drivers such as Tito Garrido who doubles as a tourist guide, telling interesting stories behind every single location.

Finally, it is electric, easy on the environment, and silent, with an autonomy of up to 70 km (43 mi). This way you can travel relatively far on one of these tuk-tuks, without bothering the locals with loud engine noises.

Seven tuk-tuk tours you can choose from

The Classic Tour will take you to the historic districts of Alfama and Graça, showing you around monuments such as the National Pantheon, Saint Vincent Monastery, and Lisbon’s Cathedral. Another stop must be made at the Portas do Sol viewpoint.

If you pick the Charming Tour, you will be taken around the most elegant, cosmopolitan and bohemian spots in Lisbon. The tour takes you to Chiado, Bairro Alto, the romantic gardens of Principe Real and Estrela and the São Pedro de Alcântara viewpoint, where you have an astonishing view.

Along the Tagus river, the Discovery Tour takes you to Belem to see the Jeronimos Monastery and other historical monuments. You can take a stroll overlooking the bridge and the statue of Cristo Rei, on the other side of the river. Finish the tour tasting an original Pastel de Belém – the quintessential Portuguese custard pastry.

Looking for a longer tour? Ask for a Total Lisbon Tour, which combines the previous three. For 4 hours, you will go by the Praça do Comércio, one of the most beautiful squares in Europe, as well as the neighborhoods of Alfama, Mouraria, Chiado, Bairro Alto, Necessidades, Parque Eduardo VII and Belém. Your driver will stop several times along the way so you can take those selfies and taste the best local food!

The Follow 28 tram tour runs the same route as the famous tram, but at your own pace. This is the best way to experience the views without feeling like a canned sardine on the busy tram. It is an up-and-down tour passing the Our Lady of Monte viewpoint, the narrow and colorful streets of Alfama, the historic Baixa Pombalina and posh Chiado, the National Assembly and beautiful Estrela’s garden and church.

You may go instead for the Sevenspots tour which is essentially the Discovery and Classic tour combined, allowing you to get the full experience.

Finally, you can design your own Custom Tour. When planning a bachelor’s party, a company gathering, an original way to take the bridegroom to church, or simply to dine out in one of Lisbon’s charming restaurants, you can count on a Sevenspots tuk-tuk to do the job.

Info:

1-hour ride: 60 euros (up to six people)

Working hours: 9 AM – 9 PM.

Sevenspots is a partner of Pestana Hotel Group, and its electric vehicles are clearly identified and usually parked outside the Pestana CR7 Lisboa, just a few steps from historic Praça do Comércio. You can’t have a more central location than this as your starting point to explore the city!
