TOURS & ACTIVITIES IN PORTUGAL
In Portugal, particularly in the big cities of Lisbon and Porto as well as in all the tourist area of the Algarve in the South, the traveler has a large and varied offer of tourist experiences, from tours, to nautical, sports, wine, nature activities, etc. Choosing what best fits their tastes and interests without disappointing the expectations of quality and comfort and above all, to know what it is worth or not, is a difficult task for those who do not know the destination where they will travel.
What to do in Lisbon?
Depending on the length of your stay in Lisbon, this is how we can recommend the activities you should consider doing.... If you have children in the group there are options that will please them a lot.
For a short stay of two or three days we recommend a tight time management in the planning of activities, so that you can have a stay full of memories.
If you are planning to spend a week or more in your trip to Lisbon and want to know what you can't miss within a 150 kms radius, take this advice, don't book your hotel all the time in Lisbon, enjoy the trip, the stay and the multiple activities along the itinerary.
Things to avoid
Staying in places with difficult access to major roads in and out of main cities can consume a significant amount of your tour time in lengthy traffic jams.
Also opting for bus or minibus tours that pick up and drop off passengers at various hotels in the city is a very tedious experience with long delays. Opting for bus or minibus tours that pick up and drop off passengers at various hotels in the city is a very tedious experience with long delays.

Pros & Cons
Many people choose to stay in the historic center of Lisbon because they can visit all the surrounding attractions on foot. That is true. But it's also true that after two days of walking back and forth you yearn to move on to new experiences that involve leaving Lisbon and end up using public transportation and wasting a lot of time in the city traffic.
The Metro is the fastest transportation so staying close to a Metro station is always a good option.
However, visiting Lisbon without going beyond the city is a waste of time and money. If within a 50km radius you can visit wonderful places like Sintra, Cascais, Cabo da Roca, Ericeira, Setúbal, Sesimbra and other attractions not to be missed, within a 130km radius you can still get away from the big tourist concentrations and visit several UNESCO Heritage sites, natural beauty and places of great historical interest such as the monumental city of Évora, sumptuous medieval monasteries and convents as in Tomar, Alcobaça and Batalha, the Sanctuary of Our Lady of Fátima, the magnificent surfing beach of Nazaré or the medieval town of Óbidos.
If you are really attracted by these tours by car I would recommend you do not to stay in the center of Lisbon. In this situation and to avoid the hustle and bustle of the city traffic jams you make a better choice by opting for a hotel or other type of accommodation in East Lisbon, in or around the modern Lisbon neighborhood of Parque das Nações, with easy access to the center of Lisbon by Metro but with immediate access to Lisbon's main road exits, the airport and the train.
