 A visit to the Portuguese Capital City-Lisbon

A visit to Lisbon is something that came into my mind when I wanted to refresh my mind away from work and just relax in some serene place. It was the first place that I thought of and I knew that my instincts are always right. I believed in the place that I had never seen and it was even my first time to think about it. I wanted to give it a try and enjoy all that the nature had there for me. I was not disappointed when I went to Lisbon and the place was full of glamour, serenity, wonderful nature and so much that I had never imagined. I just wondered why I had never gone to this place long time ago to enjoy all these but I realised that there is a time for everything and my time to be in Lisbon had reached so no one could stop me. Even the finances could not stop me because there was money in budget for the tour of the year.

I started my tour with the Yellow Bus Tour Lisbon. This is a guide that takes you to the best places and attractions in Lisbon. You are able to have a view of very interesting tourist sights through the open top bus and you can as well have the historic tram where you can discover the whole city at your own speed. After getting the ticket, you can take any bus any time for that particular duration of your ticket. I loved this kind of tour and it made me see the city in such a great way. I actually used the Yellow bus service to tour to Belem and its surroundings where I viewed the tram service to Estrella cathedral and over that magnificent hill was breath taking with new vistas at every bend. I was also glad to have the elevator in the heart of the city also covered by the ticket and I enjoyed touring to all those places and the surrounding.

The following day, I started it again by visiting the Lisbon Zoo or Jardim Zoologico de Lisboa which is a wonderful zoo with up to two hundred animals and even a wonderful dolphin show. This is a very interesting zoo with a huge number of animals. It is a must visit zoo to anyone who is in Lisbon for a great tour and I loved it so much because I am a big fun of animals of almost all kinds. There was a whole bunch of species in this zoo and they were all labelled and indicated. It is a very organized kind of zoo. I also enjoyed the shows with the dolphins and the lion seas. It was even more convenient for me because there was more than one show per day of which I also watched the show with the reptiles.

I went to the Fado in Chiado or Fado in Lisbon for those spectacular theatres to soothe my mind and enjoy the live theatres that I had missed for so long. This is a live theatre that features artists, scientists, musicians that actually combine pride and conformism in music style. It is a place to learn about the city and the culture. In fact this place Fado has already been declared an intangible cultural heritage of humanity by the UNESCO. This was a unique way of enjoying the live music and guitar with the sweet voices of the male and female singers. It was like a great Fado concert and I had fallen in love with their music that I never wanted to leave the place. There was a Portugal guitar which was so exceptional and it was also backed up with another classical. This was amazing experience that I had in Lisbon.

I decided to have another unique way of touring Lisbon by the Lisbon Bike Tour. The guides have planned very wonderful places with the major historical areas to cover using this Lisbon Bike Tour. It is a very good way of seeing Lisbon by wonderful guides who are experienced and knowledgeable in all areas. I realised that the history of Lisbon is very unique through a special guide that I had with a very easy going bike tour that also made me feel relaxed. There was a perfect stop on the way to see some sights then we continue with the trip. The guide was so friendly and I enjoyed everything. It was fun and very fascinating kind of tour in Lisbon which looked very exceptional with the photos that my guide helped me to take. With those wonderful photos, I carried part of Lisbon with me to my home.

I also had a boat tour with the Lisbon Boat Tour which offers boat tours to the coast of the Cascais, Lisbon and the Estoril. They can take through all the famous monuments and even give you the history about them in a unique wonderful boat. The tours are very exclusive for a maximum of eight people who are provided with two guides to help you have a wonderful experience in Lisbon. I was able to cruise along that beautiful coast with my guides who made me feel just like one of the locals in the place. They were very helpful, organised and excellent guides to have for that splendid boat tour and I really enjoyed myself. I am currently planning for the next visit to this place and the memories of the place are still in my mind.

I went to Lisbon falls to enjoy the serenity of the waterfalls in that place. The waterfall gives the visitors a chance to see even the other falls in the area that also includes the Berlin falls. This was a life time experience that is also still fresh in my mind. In fact, when I see flowing waters, I start thinking of the Lisbon waterfall and its splendour. I think of the wonderful experience that I had in that tour. The guides also made it a great event for me for they were so supportive, cooperative and very organised. They were also very friendly and easy to be with. I enjoyed the experience in the waterfalls so much and this is the next place that I would want to visit again when I go back to Lisbon.

I went to Lisbon Segway tours to have a final tour of the city before getting my way back home because it was hard to believe that I had to leave this wonderful place and travel back. This is actually the best ways of having fun. There are the Moto healths to offer you with different tours. I loved the trip and I had a wonderful time of fun. There was 10 minutes training for the staff before the start but everything else was so wonderful. The guides who were well trained and very knowledgeable were of great help to me and they enabled me to have a magnificent experience in the place.

I also went to sports club for golf courses. This is a wonderful Golf course with a personality in Lisbon that everyone should not afford to miss. It is a very nice but old fashioned course with a great club atmosphere. It has a very interesting layout. I loved playing here so much and the score cards were not threatening at all. They were very well designed and they really offered a real choice for the longer hitter. I actually took the risk and even paid the price in some instances. I really enjoyed the course. The club was also very welcoming and the club house actually basks in the afternoon sun which seemed quite amazing. That was such a rare thing in Lisbon. The experience is still fresh in my mind and I would want to have such an experience again.
