Overall rating

4.6 / 5

based on 275 reviews

I got this card at noon on Saturday, and used it until the next day at noon time and it was the best choice to make as I can enjoy many famous destinations in Lisboa and use the transportation (including the famous Tram 28) to those destinations with no charge.

The tour was in English and I was on my own, but the guide, Jose-san, spoke slowly, so I was able to enjoy my time there! It is a recommended tour for efficiently going around Sintra.

Great value and easy pickup process. Don’t worry too much about when to pick up the cards, as the validity of the card only starts after you first use it (e.g. on the metro).

It doesn't get any better. system with colors. 100% barrier-free. You can go anywhere.

Worth it, unlimited travel with Metro, Buses, Trams
