Bike Tour in Lisbon

Top 10 Best Tours, Excursions and Activities in Lisbon

I’ve recently travelled to Rome and since I was only staying for a few days I wanted to avoid wasting any time queuing to get into the main touristic spots. While researching for tickets online I ended up discovering the best app from where to buy skip-the-line tickets. No queues, no endless waiting in the cold. As soon as I returned to Portugal I started looking for a similar service in Portugal, and there it was. The same service I used in Italy. An app and website dedicated to selling tickets for Portuguese tours, excursions and activities.

Most of the tickets can be cancelled in the 24h before the trip, also, after buying the tickets on your phone, all you’ll have to worry is showing up since your phone voucher is usually enough.
